    does anyone of you guys do the Apple betas for software update? If so what all do you have to do to be able to do it. And does it let apple into your personal info?

    I do the beta. I just googled Apple iOS beta program and went from there. I do not believe it lets them into your personal info. I got a feedback app and when I notice bugs I send them the info via that app.

    I do the beta. Just keep in mind, things might not work right. So be patient if things aren't perfect.

    Yeah my only problem is I see where it says to backup your iphone. And I don't have a way to or know how to.

    You should have enough free space in the cloud. You have to be on Wi-Fi. Go into settings > iCloud > Backup > Back up now. Though, I think it can be difficult to get back off a beta and you can't restore from a different iOS version. So I guess really... Just be sure you want to do the beta.

    In case you do need to revert after installing beta:

    I'd wait until it actually comes out and see what it's about. Then decide if you want to try it. Honestly the beta right now doesn't have much of a benefit (To me).
