    Hello everyone,

    When I had my Windows Phone, I was on Microsofts Insider Program on the fast ring, meaning I got the latest features, even though it could be quite buggy. I was wondering about Apples Beta program. Is it safe? Can it brick an iPhone? What would be key differences between Apples and Microsofts versions? Can public members use it, or is it only for developers? I love beta testing software for companies, because all feedback is good feedback. I'm on the insider program on my Windows PC still, and I love it!

    Thank you for any help,

    It's safe. In the 4 years I've used the iPhone, I haven't heard of one single iPhone being "bricked" for any reason. There's a public beta that's separate from the developer beta. No idea how it may differ from Microsoft.

    I've had few dodgy ms build. So it is always like this. Do it at the risk that it could be buggy. But in saying that.. I would not have it any other way...

    It's safe. I'm on the public beta. I haven't experienced any issues with the public betas.

    You can make a iPhone not work completely by turning the date back as far as possible I believe this on the 9.?operating system.
