The devices are quite vital for purpose of testing.
Third party developers constantly use beta updates of apps which require the registration of a UDID account on the iOS Dev Center on Apple’s website.
While the limit for using the iDevices had been set to 100 by Apple, looks like they have realized the need for more devices for ad hoc distribution. The fruit company has now doubled the limit, and now developers can use up to 200 iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone on a single account. There have been several tweets about the change.
Check out this tweet:
Removing the device does free up space (once its registered, it counts forever) until the membership is renewed, so Apple may have made this decision after listening complaints from developers about the limit.
This also means that those who have been selling access to iOS 7 beta built with a UDID account will also be making more money than before.
