Privacy in the Apple Beta Software Program

The Apple Beta Software Program is a voluntary program through which users may install pre-release software from Apple and provide feedback. Using this software and participating in the program may involve the collection and use of data by Apple as outlined below.

To help Apple improve its products and services, Apple may collect and process diagnostic, technical, and usage logs and information from your Apple devices that are running beta versions of iOS, tvOS, or macOS. Data includes general analytics data, various unique device identifiers, various unique system or hardware identifiers, details about hardware and operating system specifications, performance statistics, the use of peripherals, and — if Location Services is enabled — certain location information. None of the information that is collected identifies you personally. Apple may share these diagnostic, technical, and usage logs and information with partners and third-party developers for purposes of allowing them to improve their products and services that operate on or in connection with Apple-branded products. After installing the beta software, you may opt to not send Analytics data to Apple by changing your privacy settings.

When running the beta software, you can choose to submit feedback directly to Apple through the Feedback Assistant app. Each feedback report can include system diagnostic files (e.g., kernel logs, Apple System Profile logs, hang logs, crash logs, spin logs, install logs, application logs, etc.) from your Apple devices. Such files may include personally identifiable information, including, without limitation, your account name, information regarding your contacts, calendar events, and email correspondence. Providing these system diagnostic files is voluntary, but if you do provide them to Apple, then you acknowledge and agree that you have obtained the necessary rights and consents to provide such information to Apple and that Apple may use them for Apple’s diagnostic purposes and to improve the Apple Beta Software Program and Apple’s products and services.

The above information is not associated with any other information which Apple may hold about you and is used by Apple in accordance with our Privacy Policy available at
