iOS 8 problems may lead to public Beta testing
It is not unusual for smartphones or other mobile devices to encounter issues with the software that is running on them, and that can certainly be said of the latest version of the operating system that Apple has released. Now though it seems as if the various iOS 8 problems will lead to some public Beta testing.
iOS 8 has been plagued with various issues since it was first released and despite Apple releasing minor updates to the software many users are still complaining of problems, but now for the release of iOS 8.3 next month and iOS 9 later this year it seems that Apple are going to allow non-developers to try out the software and offer feedback.
Apple did something similar for its OS X Yosemite Mac software and it is being reported by 9to5Mac that the company will be launching similar programs for iOS. It is claimed that a public Beta of iOS 8.3 will come next month via Apple’s AppleSeed program.
Then at June’s WDC event the public will get a first look at iOS 9 that will be released later in the year with the next batch of new iPhone models. Meanwhile iOS 8.2 is still in developer testing in readiness for the launch of the Apple Watch in April, but the company has already started to seed iOS 8.3 to developers.
Have you had many issues with iOS 8?
