    Not sure if I've missed anything. But has anything more been said about a possible Public Beta Testing for iOS like we just saw last year with Yosemite? When ever I Google "Apple Public Beta" I get the results for the Yosemite Beta testing.

    Ok cool thanks. Wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything yet. I'm excited to give it a try. Plus this way I don't have to pay to get a developer's license to get the new iOS's before they launch.

    I've been on the public beta testing program ever since I purchased my 6+.
    I wonder when the next beta, 8.2, will be released? #

    How'd you get to sign up for a program that's not available yet? Did you sign up for one of those licenses from a 3rd party site?

    It was a joke...
    Merely voicing an opinion that the general release version of iOS8 is a beta.#

    LOL gotcha, hard to tell sometimes on discussion boards. I know some have been paying for those licenses and claiming to be in a regular beta.

    I'm hoping they make changes to the developer betas as well. It would be nice if I could download the iOS 9 beta right when it comes out directly to my iPhone instead of having to deal with the developer portal and installing through iTunes.

    All in all I think this is a great opportunity for Apple to have smoother releases. Hopefully they took note of Google's sloppy public beta program for Lollipop and can make it an easier experience.

    I'm going to guess that it will still work the same. Although yeah it does sound like it would be easier to download directly but I think iTunes will be the way they go.
