Apple iOS 8.2 Public beta

The iOS beta comes with built-in Feedback Assistant Application, through which you can report the errors directly to the Apple. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The website further notes:

Before you install beta software, please be sure to back up your Mac using Time Machine or your iOS device with iTunes.
