But while you’re busy pinning sites to Safari 9, perusing the News app in iOS 9, or splitting the screen to your heart’s content, and your computer crashes or exhibits some other oddity, please report it to Apple. Remember what the purpose of the beta is for, and take a moment to let Apple know what went wrong.
