Apple opens iOS 8.3 beta to the public, no developer account required

As predicted, Apple has opened up its iOS beta program to the public and is no longer requiring a paid developer account to test new software. Apple debuted the new public program on Thursday along with the third iOS 8.3 beta.

Apple has released the first iOS 8.3 public beta to testers. The build number of iOS 8.3 public beta (12F5047f) is the same as iOS 8.3 beta 3 that was released earlier.

iOS 8.3 includes improved performance, increased stability, bug fixes, a redesigned Emoji keyboard, Google two-factor authentication support, Wireless CarPlay and more. iOS 8.3 also supports additional language and country support for Siri: English (India, New Zealand), Danish (Denmark), Dutch (Netherlands), Portuguese (Brazil), Russian (Russia), Swedish (Sweden), Thai (Thailand) and Turkish (Turkey).

It was only last year that Apple had launched a public beta program for OS X with Yosemite. Since then, Apple has continuously provided these users with early access to upcoming versions of OS X 10.10 to test out new features and to report any bugs they come across.

You can sign up for Apple’s Beta Software program by visiting Appleseed Beta testing site. Please take a backup of your device before installing iOS 8.3 beta.
