Who can receive pre-release software?
Receiving pre-release software is an exclusive benefit for members of the iOS Developer Program and Mac Developer Program. Access to pre-release software allows developers to incorporate the latest technologies into their development process, test for compatibility, and report bugs.
How do I receive pre-release software?
For access to pre-release software for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, you must first join the iOS Developer Program. For access to pre-release software for Mac OS X, you must first join the Mac Developer Program.
Once you have joined the appropriate Apple Developer Program, you can download pre-release software by signing in to the Dev Center.
Can I obtain code-level technical support for development with pre-release software?
While code-level technical support for pre-release software is not available from Apple, members of the Apple Developer Programs can post their questions to the Apple Developer Forums. Additionally, both the iOS Dev Center and Mac Dev Center provide links to technical resources that can assist with your development. You may also file a bug report if you have identified a bug or would like to file an enhancement request.
