WWDC22 is less than a week away and Apple reminds developers on good practices for using beta software and bug reporting.
It is very important to start testing existing applications on new OS releases as early as possible to outline possible incompatibilities and report issues back to Apple.
Using beta software could be dangerous!
Do not use beta OS releases for production or personal use. Beta versions (especially first beta releases of major OS update) could contain serious bugs. Use of those might result in data loss, iCloud account malfunction and even device bricking.
Limit use of beta versions to designated test devices and test accounts only.
