Since the creation of the Apple Beta Software Program, the company has been offering public testing (ie, for non-Apple Developer Program registered developers) for users of iPhones, iPads, iPods, Macs and Apple TVs. Did you realize that one of the important products in the Ma line is out of the joke? Yeah, Apple Watch was never part of this party.
The most likely explanation for this is the lack of a clock port / connector is a must if a problem occurs during the installation of the beta operating system and the user has to resort to a direct connection to a computer to restore everything. Well, that was one of the most plausible "excuses". But with the launch of Apple TV 4K in 2017, this theory fell apart as the set top box It also has no connector that makes this direct bridge with a Mac / PC.
Today, the first public beta versions of iOS / iPadOS 13, macOS Catalina 10.15 and tvOS 13 have been released. And while watchOS 6 is not part of this program, something is changing. That's because Apple started inviting some users to join the program. AppleSeed For watchOS 6. According to the invitation email, participants will be able to test the beta operating system and provide company feedback.
As reported by AppleInsider, unlike AppleSeed for the Apple Beta Software Program that, in the first, users necessarily need to be invited by Apple to participate, allowing for greater control of the company. Selected participants also have a discussion forum to talk to; In addition, questionnaires are sent to collect information without counting, of course, with the Feedback Assistant application through which users can report problems directly to Apple.
AppleSeed also has a stricter NDA. In addition, Apple may provide different builds for certain groups of “testers” (including something they didn't want to publicly disclose), something that doesn't happen in the Apple Beta Software Program.
Well Has anyone been invited to the tests?
