Good God! Apple is in competition with Microsoft with screw ups!

Whatever you do, don't download the iOS 17 developer beta - Apple made a huge mistake

This warning should be made for ANY Beta software. It is dangerous to put Beta Software on any device you rely on for service, and Beta software can have bugs, cause crashes, and can damage saved data. USE CAUTION with any Beta.

There’s a reason it’s called BETA. It’s testing. I only have 1 laptop now so very limited with testing macOS. However I do have 2 phones so always test beta iOS on 1 but test it on my work phone.
