How do I sign up for public betas?

Apple needs help, precious support throughout the summer period to track, detect and eradicate the bugs that are in the updates that were showcased at the WWDC 2022 Apple Event.
If many developers are making feedback, it is clearly not enough to be effective. This is where public testers come in, curious and very often impatient Apple users who want to test upcoming software innovations!

As soon as you join the program, you will automatically receive new betas in your device settings until the final version, which will arrive in September.

A few rules to know…

  • Install a public beta on an Apple device you share with someone else
  • Sharing information on sites
  • Don’t post screenshots on social media
  • Do not show the public beta to people who are not part of the program
