99$ for two months of beta? Just balance between your real needs and your impatience and you'll see by yourself. Plus, you'll be subject to bugs and you may be more annoyed than happy... Your call...
Just to load a beta OS onto the phone that could potentially make it harder to use, i.e., betas are not the most stable pieces of software.
This is why these UDID sites exist. A small number of consumers want to test the betas but Apple won't allow them to.
oh im aware they can be buggy. and im not saying i want to spend the money on it, i infact DONT want to. i enjoyed when RIM had OS leaks all the time as we were able to install them ahead of carrier release. we were able to mix match OS files to make hybrids that may be more stable or battery efficient than others. RIM also had a blackberry beta program where registration was free, and we could choose which program (mostly blackberry official apps like BBM) we wanted to participate in, test and submit feedback for. i think it would benefit apple more to have a larger beta community, that wasnt expensive. to participate in.Just to load a beta OS onto the phone that could potentially make it harder to use, i.e., betas are not the most stable pieces of software.
Its your money but I'd say there may be better ways to spend $99
Developers will try to discourage you from using the betas because they are "unstable" and "buggy". If you want to test out the betas do it. Just get the IPSW when its out. i tested the iOS 6 betas last year and i'm not even a developer. It wasn't even buggy. At least in my experience. You can always go back to iOS 6.1.3 if you don't like the betas by restoring. Just make a backup of iOS 6.1.3 before you update to 7.0 because your 7.0 backup wont work.
