Apple has started seeding iOS 8.2 beta 3 download live over the iOS Dev Center. Released only a week after beta 2 of iOS 8.2 was rolled out. Full details on change log and what’s new in it right after this fold!
First off it’s not expected that new iOS 8 beta 3 software will hit the end user until next year, but here we got the third beta of iOS 8.2 now. Developers already registered with the UDID account, can download it from Dev Center for free to test it.
In September, iOS 8 finally launched for public and already seen a lot of new releases in short period of time. Arriving around the time of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and with iOS 8.0.1 shaky start, causing tens of thousands of new iPhone owners to lose cellular coverage and the use of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
Rectified with the rolll out of iOS 8.1. With it brought Apple Pay to the carpet, helping to push the fair, contactless transactions, and with new implementations by Apple this year, the regularity of the updates shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.
iOS 8.2 indeed brings Apple Watch, which is already suggested as 8.1 brought Apple Pay, and the next 2015’s will be getting the company’s inaugural smartwatch to the fore. Compete with Android Wear-powered wearables which take off through a number of Google’s manufacturing partners, announcing wearable in September, Cupertino will made its best decision, since it means that many of those who might have gone for a Moto 360 or LG G Wtach R may instead hold off for the Apple alternative.
Key feature on iOS 8.2 would be pushing of WatchKit, which will enable developer to build great experiences that integrate traditional iOS and the Watch-based version of platform. Beta build obviously contains bug fixes, with no further details mentioned in the changelog.
