On its developer center news page, Apple has just announced that TestFlight beta testing is now open to all iOS developers.
As you probably remember, Apple acquired the beta testing service earlier this year by purchasing developer Burstly. Back at WWDC, Apple announced that the service would be integrated directly into iOS 8.
Developers can now invite up to 1,000 testers to beta test their apps with a simple email invitation through iTunes Connect. Once the invite is accepted, the testers will need to download the TestFlight app.
Through that app, which landed in early September, testers can receive updated builds and provide feedback to the developers.
If you’re interested, developers can learn more about how TestFlight works by heading to this section on Apple’s site now.
While there are other similar beta testing services available for developers, Apple has done a nice job making TestFlight dead simple to use. Previously, only 25 users could beta test an app, and the testing process required more than a few steps.
