Hi

I am interested in pre-releases. I am not a programmer.



Do I need to pay 99$ for iOS + 99$ for Mac? Or only 99$ for both?

Can I install pre-releases on my corporate iPhone and Mac Book Air? Do you recommend me? Or it's not stable? I have no dedicated testing hardware.

Is it worth for non-programmers? :apple:

Ok... What's your question?

You have to pay the 99 dollars...
He's asking if you need to pay for each one separately...

As far as I know, yes you do need to pay $200 for both. Can you install it on your corporate devices? I dunno, ask your boss or someone permission.

As far as "is it worth it" goes, thats up to you -- for iOS I personally like using the betas and trying the new stuff out and seeing how Apple progresss in trying things out in the betas, but in the Mac OS I generally want my machine to remain as stable as possible.

You have to realize that these betas could potentially mean the loss of all your data, so only use them if you accept that fact. I don't keep enough valuable information on my iOS devices to matter, but my Mac is my life -- I can't afford to lose anything, even if I do have a backup.

A lot more.

Twice $99, per anum, plus having a spare Mac (or spare boot partition or drive) and a spare iOS test device that you don't depend on, in case the betas have bugs that render your hardware temporarily useless (until the next iOS beta, or you rebuild your Mac from backups).
