Apple is making some significant changes to streamline its developer programs. The new, unified Apple Developer Program will cost $99 per year, but will gives users access to all of the beta editions of iOS, Mac OS X, and the WatchOS.
Previously, developers needed to join two different programs that each cost $99 per year to access iOS and Mac OS X betas. All individual and company developer accounts have automatically been shifted to the new program. To answer any changes, Apple has also published a comprehensive support document.
If you were previously enrolled in both programs, your expiration date has been extended to include the sum of days that remained in each program.
It’s nice to see Apple making it easier for developers to create software for all three platforms.
