Public Beta

To Beta, or not to Beta - That is the question:
Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The bugs and glitches of pre-production software
Or to wait patiently for fall general releases
And by stalling better enjoy them. To install, to test-
Evermore— and by test we say to dive into
New features, widgets, scribble by pencil
That iPads, iPhones, and Macs are destined for.
It’s a consumption, to devoutly be wished.
To install, to test-
To test- perhaps to dream of unreleased devices
For in that dream of Apple silicon
Amongst the mountains of Big Sur
Are the possibilities we yearn for.

Apple has released public betas for their major fall releases. I already have it running on my iPad (where I’m writing this post) but I know better than to put it on my iPhone or watch. I write most of my poetry by hand with the logitech crayon, and then type up the handwritten notes. I really couldn’t wait for scribble which promises to really help my work flow. The widgets are fun, but ultimately I know that the real excitement will be when developers release their app updates in the fall. As the summer goes on I’ll update with more impressions, but until then beta at your own peril. 

If you’re interested in installing the betas you can check out thins link on Apple’s beta page. There are also some great beta overviews on Six Colors and MacStories.
