News / Mobile phones Apple to widen pre-release iOS testing to retail employees

According to multiple sources of 9to5Mac, Apple is going to provide selected retail employees with access to future versions of iOS in a bid to widen its pre-release testing program. 

If true, this will be the first time Apple will be expanding its pre-release testing program to beyond its employees in its Cupertino headquarters and developers who are a part of its program.

In recent times, Apple has been criticised heavily for the declining stability of OS X and iOS. While previously the OSes were known for their “It just works” attitude, they have become highly bug-ridden and unstable recently. For example, months after the release of OS X Yosemite, the OS is still giving WiFi issues to many users.

The release of iOS 8 will probably go down as the worst in the history of iOS releases from Apple with the Health app and HealthKit being completely broken when initially shipped. To make matters worse, the company botched up the cellular functionality and Touch ID for many iPhone users when it rolled out the iOS 8.0.1 update.

Here’s hoping that by widening its pre-release testing program Apple will be able to fix more bugs before iOS releases.
