Selling the iOS 6 Beta

Cocoanetics on the new iOS 6 Beta and it getting into the hands of non-developers:

The Apple Bug Reporter site is open for everybody with an Apple ID, but most of these “illegal” users will probably never be filing any Radars. The only thing these people ever do is complain about all that is wrong with iOS 6 but never actually help in ironing out the kinks.

That’s the point of the beta: to fix bugs. Getting early access is not about a secret Developer club having access to all the shiny new whizz-bang features before everyone else, it’s about those developers—people who have to work with this software for a living—helping Apple get it right not just for them, but for every user.
