Beta versions are what we all love to use as it gives us the early access to a product which will be officially available to other people in the future. Microsoft always releases its developer and consumer previews of Windows for beta testing to give an experience to end users that how will be the upcoming product in terms of usability and changes.

Apple however used to have a different approach. If you wanted to try your hands on the beta versions of the iTunes, iOS and other Apple-related software, people used to have enrolled in a $99 per year paid program called Developer Program. Due to this, not every Apple lover could try their hands on the beta version of Apple software releases.

But now Apple is coming out with a new idea using which any Apple user can use the beta versions of the Apple software without paying any money. The biggest reason behind the change in Apple’s approach regarding the beta testers that it is going to help Apple in finding bugs in upcoming Apple products.
