    Apple will release public betas for iOS 8.3 and iOS 9.0

    Apple is apparently planning to release public beta versions for both iOS 8.3 and iOS 9.0 this year, according to a rumor on the matter which is surely an effort to eliminate bugs from upcoming iOS versions ahead of their general releases. This information reportedly comes from "multiple people briefed on the plans", which means it should be reasonably accurate.

    If true, this would be a big shift in Apple's way of developing its mobile software. Up until now, only registered developers have had access to the company's beta releases for iOS. And as being an iOS developer entails a $99 yearly fee, the public at large mostly hasn't ever seen any beta builds of iOS. There have been instances of people selling beta downloads from developer accounts, but their success has likely been limited.
    Apple ouvrirait les versions beta d’iOS 8.3 et iOS 9 à des utilisateurs lambda
    Following the successful launch of the OS X Public Beta program with OS X Yosemite last year, Apple intends to release the upcoming iOS 8.3 as a public beta via the company’s existing AppleSeed program in mid-March, according to the sources. This release will match the third iOS 8.3 beta for developers, which is planned for release the same week. Apple then expects to debut iOS 9 at its June Worldwide Developer Conference, with a public beta release during the summer, and final release in the fall.

    This change probably comes as a reaction to the pretty bad rap iOS 8 got in terms of stability and bugs. It's safe to say this wasn't Apple's smoothest release ever, and the company seems to think that getting more people involved in beta testing future versions should make those less prone to having various issues - which makes sense of course.
