Looking for the Apple Beta Software Program?


Invitation Only Program

With your Invitation, this program gives you a first look at new and upcoming software while giving you the ability to provide feedback directly into engineering.

Help Apple

We want to collect feedback from our customers to improve the overall quality of our products. With your help, we can test in many different environments. Your feedback about your experience with our products will impact Apple's future success.



Use of pre-release software is strictly confidential. All potential participants are required to sign a Customer Seed and Confidentiality Agreement before being accepted into the program.

Active Participation.

We strongly urge you to test the software and require your feedback. A variety of reporting tools are offered providing engineering with functional data. Failure to actively participate may disqualify you from future seeding programs.



Complete a profile.

We need to collect some background information about you, your interests, and your computing environment to select the right people for the project.

Customer Seed and Confidentiality Agreement.

Pre-release software is considered Apple confidential property and all participants must view and acknowledge the agreement in order to be considered.

Be selected.

We select participants for specific product seeds based on the profile information you provide and the needs of the product engineering team. We can not guarantee that you will be selected to test a particular software product.

Provide Apple with your feedback.

We expect to hear about your experience with the product. You will be asked to complete engineering questionnaires, fill out bug reports, enhancement requests, and participate in online discussion.
