You could (and probably should) wait for the wide release this fall before downloading iOS 8. But if you absolutely can't wait, here's how to get Apple's brand new iOS 8 beta on your phone right now.

We should note too that we really don't recommend you do this unless you're a serious iOS addict. It's going to take a while for iOS 8 to be anything other than a buggy, volatile mess, and unless you have been scratching your eyes out in anticipation, you're going to regret it. That said, if you absolutely can't wait (you can!), you have a couple of options.
