So I joined Apples beta program when OSX mavericks beta came out, I had an old Iphone 4 at the time. I now have an iPhone 6, with iOS 8.3 installed. I've tried updating both through itunes and OTA, but it just says I have the newest version(8.3). I am looking to try out 8.4 beta, but nothing ever shows up!, I have tried unenrolling/enrolling again on beta.apple.com and leaving and joining the beta again, both on the mac and the phone, but still no luck.

Am I missing something?

I am looking for the PUBLIC betas, I know iOS 9 beta is still developer program only, but I should be able to get 8.4 public beta, right?

You have to log into the developers portal to download iOS 9 then use iTunes to install it.

Thanks, but as I explained, I am not looking for developer betas, but public beta 8.4

Apple has to send you an email with info to actually get into the Public beta. If you didn't get an email with instruction Apple didn't pick you. They sent out invites to randomly selected people. There won't be anymore invites until iOS 9 Public Beta in July.

Not everyone got access to iOS betas--Apple seems to have selected a somewhat small group of everyone who actually signed up.

I do not think that you will get the public betas of iOS 8. It is probably too late. You will have to wait the betas of iOS 9.

For me, in place of enroll your devices, I see enroll your MAC. I did not get invited to the iOS beta program.
