Apple Seeds iOS 8 Beta 5 to Developers for Testing
On Monday, Apple seeded iOS 8 beta 5
to developers for testing. iOS 8 beta 5 comes two weeks after the seed of iOS 8 beta 4
This beta firmware allows iOS developers to test their applications on the new firmware ahead of its official release to the public so that they will be ready for the public release of the new software this Fall as easy as possible for users.
iOS 8 beta 5 is now available for iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, via the OTA (over the air) updating service in Settings > General > Software Update on devices already running an iOS 8 beta. It will not show up for those running iOS 7, as it's a closed beta for developers only.
iOS 8 beta 5 includes a number of bug fixes and improvements for those testing the software, and there are sure to be some changes that we'll discover along the way. We will keep you updated as we discover more, so stay tuned!
