How to Install iOS 9.3 beta 3 without Developer Account?

After I decided to install iOS 9.3 beta 3 on my iOS device, I want to share with you how I was able to install it without any problems knowing that Apple has strict policy on its iOS software usage. Here is a simple instruction on how to install the iOS 9.3 beta 3 without developer account. Just be careful when you install this pre-release software because it's not yet the final version and we expect that there are programming errors (usually minor errors based on my previous beta testing experiences) which are not yet fixed by Apple. They need our help to trace those "bugs" for them to fix it before they release the final build this March 2016.
