    Its been one day and you already want the next beta? Should be at least another week before we get an update.

    Typically iOS is on a 2-3 week interval, almost like clockwork. OS X may not be as frequent. Sometimes betas come out more frequently in the first couple months and then slow down.

    My friend wants to know, will non-devs get updates from the App Store/automatically? Do you need a dev account to get those updates, or just 10.10 installed?

    If you are impatient one there is always a way to get what you want, but still, public beta, which should be a more stable version, obviously won't be released one day after developer preview.

    Only people signed up through the Developer program should have the DP at this time. Once Apple opens the Public beta, then non-devs can access Yosemite - it will have its own update schedule separate from developers.

    If you have registered for beta program, you'll receive the code and install it normally, it should update itself then from DP to Beta and enable you to report the bugs with your Apple ID (Assuming you can't do it now because you got DP version from 3rd party source)

    But when you think about this, there should be really at least DP2 in between before Apple jumps to beta versions. And public beta is, well... Beta, NOT Alpha or DP.

    Agreed and understood. But if he gets the DP illegitimately, as I told him not to, will he get updates? Or is he left behind because he has no dev account? I'm pretty sure it would deter him if that's the case, which is why I'm asking.

    If he's not getting it via the Developer portal and that key, he won't be getting updates via the app store, since those are tied to the Apple ID and validation of the redemption key from Member Center.
