Apple goes after websites providing links to developer beta of iOS 16, iPadOS 16 and other software

Two websites, BetaProfiles.com and IPSW.dev., that were sharing links for developer beta updates of Apple’s upcoming software have now shut down to avoid any legal battle with Apple.

For $99 per year, the Apple developer program releases beta updates of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS to developers to discover and resolves performance and stability issues before the updates are released to the public.

BetaProfiles.com notified its users via a message on Twitter that stated that the website will be shutting down to avoid any legal conflict with Apple. The website did not mention if it has received a legal notice from the Cupertino tech giant.

In the comments section, its followers were clearly upset over not having access to developer beta updates which made me wonder if they know about Apple Beta Software Program which offers pre-released software but without any fee.

Learn about the Apple Beta Software Program

Apple users who want to try the pre-released software but do not want to pay an annual fee, can sign-up for the company’s Beta Software Program for no fee. All they have to do is to enroll their devices to access the latest public betas and send the company their feedback.

The Apple Beta Software Program is open to anyone with a valid Apple ID who accepts the Apple Beta Software Program Agreement during the sign-up process. If you have an iCloud account, that is an Apple ID and we recommend you use that. If you do not have an iCloud account or any other Apple ID, you can create one now.
