I've got the iOS beta link.. not sure about entering in the beta program for this though
Can you share the direct URL to the iOS page? It would be authenticated behind the Apple ID log in, so I don't see harm in sharing that.

In 2011, I would have been all over this. But in 2015, I just want my stuff to be reliable.

Luckily, better reliability may be a result of more beta testers. But I won't be one of them.
I agree. I used to be that person who updated the second it was available and jumped on the opportunity to beta test, but now I'm so busy that I don't have time for instability.

If I could dual-boot my iPad I might of tried it like I did with the Yosemite beta, but I use my iPad and iPhone for school/work and can't afford crashes or other issues (more than I have already ;)).

What's the direct link to the iOS beta testing program? Like everyone else I'm only seeing OSX but no iOS beta program.

It's propagating through Apples servers. It will take some time for everyone to see an option for iOS.
This is 2015. Propagating across multiple servers across multiple data centers across the globe should happen in nanoseconds :)

I'm not sure if I will sign up but I'm glad I'm not one of the people that bought a developer account for the sole purpose of getting access to beta software. If I decide to, its now free. I'm not a developer so I don't need additional access that $99 would buy.

Oh look, a mobile phone User Interface scaled up, with big icons in a sea of wasted background on a 10" Tablet.

I forgave them doing this on iPad1 on launch day, but still now?
Not had 1 idea since?
And they wonder why sales are dropping?

"Well DO SOMETHING!"
