MANILA, Philippines – Once a privilege limited to developers and a select group of inidividuals, Apple is opening up beta testing for future OS X Mavericks builds to anyone with an Apple ID account.
Known as the OS X Beta Seed Program, the new initiative allows users to run pre-release builds of OS X and report any bugs they find to improve the build before release.
According to the Beta Seed information page, users who sign up and accept the confidentiality agreement will get a Beta Access Utility software for your Mac. The software wil make pre-release versions of OS X show up on the Mac App Store’s Updates panel.
Apple will have its 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference from June 2 to 6, where it is likely that a new build for OS X will get introduced.
Whether beta testers under the seed program get early access for a future build that’ll be shown at the WWDC is anyone’s guess. If they do test it in advance though, it’s likely they’ll be quiet about it till the conference itself. – Rappler.com
