After the great success that Apple has had with its Mac OS X public beta program, Apple is ready to make the grand change and start offering iOS Public Betas, sometime in mid-March, according to 9to5Mac, because “multiple people briefed on the plans.” The root of the idea has been a bug in the operating software iOS 8 that needed urgent solutions and innovative ideas to make the users forget the unfortunate event. Taking into consideration the great success that the public beta program for Mac OS X has had, Apple has made all its plans for the iOS, hoping that the success will rise up to the previous standards that the company has had with Mac.
On the other hand, there have been anonymous sources saying that the reveal of the iOS 9 will take place in June, when the Worldwide Developer Conference happens, and that afterwards – maybe sometime in the fall –the public beta will also come through. The main problem that seems to be happening with the iOS public beta is the difficulty in uninstalling it and keeping it from interfere severely with the backed-up data.
The report notes that in order to maintain a high level of particularity, there will be a limit of people who will be given the privilege of using the public beta program for iOS, and the specific number is 100,000 people. Additionally, the 9to5Mac has wrote that the main goal of the iOS beta program will be generally getter, quality-wise, and more predictable and dependable. Also, the product will be widely tested before it will be launched for the wider consumer.
The same strategy has happened with Mac OS X Yosemite: before the grand launch of the next-generation operating system planned to take place in October, the interested customers have been invited by Apple to test it as much as they want to as long as they submit their feedback back to the company. Unfortunately, the 1 million people who signed up were more that Apple has thought and the space was very limited.
The news regarding iOS9 isn’t so detailed but the company revealed that the new version of the operating system will be focusing more on improving stability and not on a variety of brand new apps. As a consequence to how Apple planned it all, customers should expect an operating system that is healthier and more stable with considerably fewer errors and bugs.
