    Thank you for the information.
    I tried to sign up but it says that I enter wrong appleid and password. Is it region restricted?
    No that just means you entered your username and password wrong.

    How can one join the beta program?
    It’s worth noting that it’s not really worth paying $99/year just to get access to the beta if you’re not actually a developer, especially when the final release is just around the corner and there’s a public beta of iOS 12 available to the general public free of charge.
    Follow the link to sign up for the public beta. The only downsides compared to the developer beta are public betas aren’t available in very early stages of new betas (obviously not an issue with iOS 12 at this point) and sometimes public beta updates aren’t available until the day after the developer betas (again, not really an issue at this point).

    I would like to thank you all for your replies. All is good now. I managed to sign up. Any concerns with the data shared while on beta? Should I be worried? Can I opt out of data collection ?

    I don’t agree. #MAGA (Make Apple Great Again). Everybody should pay that $99 a year subscription imo.

    Everyone?
    I’m not interested. I think they make enough money and do enough in developing the os.

    I haven’t experienced any of those so far on my X.
    Same here on my X too. This beta is pretty much running like a GM version of iOS 12.

    For the developer beta it costs $99 per year to a registered developer with Apple. The public beta can be accessed by going to beta.apple.com.
    I've heard rumors to the effect that free developer certificates are available from various sites on the internet that are searchable. And there are no public betas for the Apple Watch, because if something goes wrong, the Watch has to go back to Apple to be cleared and fitted with the latest official release.

    I suspect Apple isn’t in it for the money when it comes to the developer certificates, per se. The fee is for the support from Apple the developers need. Anyone else with a developer beta who runs into problems is out of luck, and will have to do a complete reset with the phone.

    Just started today, but my settings and app store and other default apps either lockup or don’t load.

    Did you turn your device off and on again?

    When the GM drops on Wednesday, I wonder if the use of a Google Maps and Waze via CarPlay will be active.
    In any case, I’ll do a clean install of the GM like I always do either later that evening or the following weekend.

    So how you do clean install? You will update GM first, take a back up & factory reset?

    I will download the GM from the Developer site via my MacBook Pro and then put my iPhone in DFU mode and install the GM via iTunes.

    Yes, the GM is usually released after the keynote.

    Didn’t the keynote end like fifteen minutes ago ? Give it time.

    It is not showing up for me either. iMore's home page says that it has been released. Nothing on my X or 8 Plus.
