Apple launches TestFlight app just days before 'iPhone 6,' iOS 8 event

September 5, 2014

Ahead of next Tuesday’s “iPhone 6” event, Apple has released its long expected TestFlight app for iOS. The service will allow developers to share betas of upcoming apps with public testers.

As Brent Dirks first reported, while many iOS users probably haven’t heard of TestFlight, it is a major help for developers. Before officially releasing their apps in the App Store, developers can use the distribution service to beta test and fine tune any lingering issues.

TestFlight’s parent company, Burstly, was acquired by Apple earlier this year. In June, it announced that the TestFlight platform would be fully integrated into the App Store in iOS 8, making it easier for developers to invite users to beta test their apps for free.

You can download the free and universal TestFlight app on the App Store.

Apple will hold its iPhone 6 event on Tuesday, Sept. 9 beginning at 10 a.m. PDT.
