Happy beta day! Apple has finally released iOS 12 to the non-developer masses - assuming you didn't use a crafty trick to get your non-paying-self enrolled in the beta a few weeks ago.
iOS 12 has been been in beta release for members of Apple's paying developer community for since their annual developer event WWDC. This morning, they opened the flood gates on their public beta program. So, if you've got the courage, you can install a beta release of iOS 12 to your iPhone or iPad or tvOS 12 to your Apple TV.
If you want to play with the "early AF" release of iOS 12, or run around in the deserts of macOS Mojave, you normally have to give Apple $149 for the privilege of developing apps for its platform - apps it will ultimately take a 30 per cent cut of (unless you offer a subscription and keep a user for longer than a year, but now I'm getting minute).
Following the release of iOS 11 into public beta earlier this week, Apple has followed up with the first public beta of macOS High Sierra.
