Apple is inviting users to test its upcoming iOS update for the first time ever. The iPhone maker has started a page where interested users can sign up to try iOS 8.3 before it is released later this year.

After registering an iPhone, users will be able to install a package that would clear the device for beta software. They can then install iOS 8.3, which features new emoji, wireless CarPlay, easier logins for Google users, and bug fixes. The beta release changelog includes,
The iOS 8.3 Beta includes improved performance, increased stability, bug fixes, and a redesigned Emoji keyboard. This release also supports additional language and country support for Siri: English (India, New Zealand), Danish (Denmark), Dutch (Netherlands), Portuguese (Brazil), Russian (Russia), Swedish (Sweden), Thai (Thailand), Turkish (turkey). This is beta software that is still in development, which means some applications and services may not work as expected. Follow the instructions below to enroll any iOS devices to receive beta updates.
