Originally, beta versions of iOS and Mac OS were only available to developers. This gave developers early access to new features and allowed them to test existing apps for compatibility. As a developer, this was a great opportunity as many apps can break when a new version of iOS is released. Apple also gets expert feedback from developers and I've submitted formal bug reports to Apple when needed. Now, however, Apple is putting the beta version of iOS and Mac OS in the hands of the public and this is causing issues for some developers.
