How to Register for an Apple Developer's Account, Download iOS 9.3 Beta on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

1. To get an iOS developer account, you must visit the Apple website and purchase a developer account. The cost is $99 a year for an Apple developer's account.

2. You will also need to register your developer device in the iOS Development Center to authenticate the device.

3. Before downloading the iOS 9.3 beta, back up your files on iTunes. This is a precaution just in case the device crashes and loses your data and you have to start from scratch, you can grab the backup from iTunes.

4. Once you satisfied all of the above requirements and procedures, you can then proceed to the actual downloading and installing of iOS 9.3 beta.

5. WARNING: Keep in mind that when preparing to test a beta version of the iOS 9.3 software, you will want to use an alternate device - not your main or personal device as bugs in the beta can cause crashes or even "bricking" of the device.

6. The iOS 9.3 beta currently supports iPhone 5 (CDMA and GSM and global GSM), iPhone 4S, and iPod Touch 5th Generation, iPad 2, 3 and 4, as well as iPad Mini and newer devices like the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPad Air, iPhone 6, 6 Plus and 6S.
