Can anyone confirm that an unregistered device can update to iOS 8b1 through iTunes?

    I have an iPad 2 and iPhone 5 I would like to try out. I will register with ***** if I have to, but thought I'd ask here first.

    Have not tried it but other blogs say no.
    Update and Restore both require activation.

    Some blogs say that you do just to make you buy a UDID slot, so we will see...

    The public betas were for Mac OS rather than iOS, or am I mistaken?

    If you were around for the 7.1 Betas you would know that that doesn't work anymore.

    To answer this: I registered my iPhone on my developer account but forgot to add my iPad, it failed activation and wouldn't let me use the device until I added my device to my account.

    Besides activating after installation, 8b1 also needs to activate after every reset so I really doubt that an unregistered device is going to be able to slip through this time.

    Yup. This. It will work up until it gets rebooted.
