We all know very well that beta operating systems bring a lot of news and people are anxious to know what’s new. Last month, the tech giant Apple began the beta test of iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12 and macOS 10.14 Mojave. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Apple currently has over four million users testing the OS betas.
Apple Currently Has Over 4 Million Users Testing The OS Betas
Beta operating systems bring a lot of news and people are anxious to know what’s new. Last month, the tech giant Apple began the beta test of iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12 and macOS 10.14 Mojave.
During the tech giant Apple’s quarterly earnings presentation, the CEO of the tech giant Apple, of course, Tim Cook provided some details on how many users are currently participating in the beta testing experience this year.
What motivates users to use beta versions?
The tech giant Apple releases the public beta versions of the iOS, macOS and tvOS operating system so that everyone with their normal ways of using can test it and give the tech giant Apple information on what’s failing. In the case of the beta version of watchOS, it is only available to programmers.
This year, Tim Cook says that more than four million people are running beta versions of all four operating systems as a whole. Unfortunately, the CEO of the tech giant Apple, of course, Tim Cook did not shared any detail number by platform, though it’s easy to assume that iOS makes up the majority of these four million beta users.
“In June, we hosted an extremely successful developer conference that predicted many of the key milestones to come this fall to our four operating systems, iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. The reaction from customers and programmers was very positive and we have more than four million users participating in our new beta operating system programs,” said the CEO of the tech giant Apple, of course, Tim Cook.
The tech giant Apple began offering public beta testing for iOS in 2015 as an effort to help further reduce the bugs that were appearing. Having more than four million people running the risk of running beta versions is certainly an impressive feat for the tech giant Apple, and underscores the popularity of its future software releases.

This kind of use of an unfinished product brings risks, but above all shows that people already rely on the beta versions, that these will be more stable to be used on a day to day basis. Also, these numbers show the user’s anxiety to use the news that will only appear later in an official way.
