Microsoft users have been able to get a sneak peek at the newest Windows operating system for months, and now avid Apple fans can get in on the fun. That's because Apple is letting anyone test drive its newest operating systems for free.

Apple has released beta versions of OS X El Capitan for Mac computers and iOS 9 for iPhones and iPads. Up until now, the operating systems were only available to developers, but starting today Apple had made them available to anyone.

Each operating system will feature several new tools and upgrades. The new OS X will showcase a side-by-side screen function and new gesture controls, according to Buzzfeed. iOS 9, on the other hand, will come with upgrades for Siri and Notes in addition to Apple's new News app. It will also have a split-screen function available on iPads.

Before you click the download button, make sure you know what you're in for. Beta versions are far from the finished product, which means they can contain lots of bugs and issues that Apple still has to fix.
