Apple will fight iOS bugs with first-ever iOS Public Betas: 8.3 in March, 9 in summer
In an effort to eliminate bugs from upcoming iOS versions ahead of their general releases, Apple plans to launch the first-ever public beta program for the iOS operating system, according to multiple people briefed on the plans. Following the successful launch of the OS X Public Beta program with OS X Yosemite last year, Apple intends to release the upcoming iOS 8.3 as a public beta via the company’s existing AppleSeed program in mid-March, according to the sources.
More beta testers means more stability in the product. But after what Yosemite has been going through, it’s really hard to maintain hope.
For iOS 9 and whatever 10.11 will be called, Apple absolutely needs to have laser-eyed focus on stability. Marco may have regretted this post, but it’s absolutely spot on.
