Didn't Even Know
Huh. I guess I must have signed-up for the Apple Seed program at some point as l noticed a software update on my iPad last week and went ahead and installed it. I'm running v8.3. I didn't even realize it was a beta program thing! Interesting ...

Re: I am willing to have a try
LiTan: It makes perfect sense that Apple would start making the iOS beta available. What I don't get is the name change for the program. Apple Seed is clever, why do you think they changed the name to make it sound so pedestrian?

Dev != QA
This is probably a very good idea. Devlopers are notoriously bad at wearing a QA hat. Its like we have some sort of blinders on, and in strange areas. No, its those users that find the good stuff.

I am willing to have a try
It's good that we have iOS 8.3 Beta available. Personally I am willing to have a try. I am not sure if it indicates the shift of strategy but this is good for Apple-fans: try the new stuff earlier than before.
