Apple is introducing a new TestFlight feature that allows developers to share a public URL for an app beta. Customers can easily open the link their iPhone or iPad and automatically Apple: to the beta test group via the TestFlight app.

Public links give developers more flexibility when running app beta & # 39; s for sharing their user file. They can easily share a public link their social media account and have dedicated users register and test some new features before they reach the App Store release.
Developers can start a public link and include a limit the number of registratis, so you do not run the risk of opening the locks if an invitati link becomes too popular too quickly. The developer can also disable the public link at any time. In total, Apple supports the distributi of up to 10,000 testers for a beta app in TestFlight.
When somee participates in a TestFlight beta via a public link, they are added as an anymous tester. Developers do not know the name or e-mail address of the pers unless the user chooses to send explicit e-mail feedback back to the developer.
Like all TestFlight beta, builds expire automatically after 90 days. Developers can submit new builds that appear in the TestFlight app as available updates to install. Beta & # 39; s are always free to download and in-app purchases are always free in the test sandbox.
TestFlight is ly available for iPhone, iPad, Apple and TVOS apps. Mac developers are still in the dark about this.
