  • iOS 8.2 Reportedly Launching Next Monday, Here's What's New in the Update


    iOS 8.2 is Apple's next major mobile operating system update for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad that is expected to drop any time now. Reports have been all over the charts on when it could be released, but after missing two the most recent expectations, BGR has another estimate, which seems to line up with current events.

    iOS 8.2 is expected to be released to the public next week; the same week as Apple's March 9th 'Spring Forward' event where the Apple Watch is expected to be unveiled with information on pricing and availability. Although the iOS 8.2 update was expected to be released this week instead of next week, Apple has reportedly decided to push one last beta release to its partners for testing, likely to attempt to patch the FREAK Web security issue that was reported on yesterday, which Apple said they would release an update for next week (iOS 8.2?).

    As we know, iOS 8.2 comes with the WatchKit developer API so that third-party developers can tap into Apple's new Watch wearable with their software, but as we can see, iOS 8.2 also comes with some additional improvements that are listed in the official change log below (via BGR):

    Health App improvements

    • Adds the ability to select the unit of measurement for body temperature, weight, height, distance, and blood glucose
    • Improves stability when dealing with large amounts of data
    • Includes the ability to add and visualise workout sessions from 3rd-party apps
    • Addresses an issue that may have prevented users from adding a photo in Medical ID
    • Fixes units for vitamins and minerals
    • Fixes an issue where Health data wouldn’t refresh after changes data source order
    • Fixes an issue where some graphics showed no data values
    • Adds a privacy setting that enables turning off tracking of steps, distance, and flights climbed



    Stability Enhancements

    • Increases stability of Mail
    • Improves stability of Flyover in Maps
    • Improves stability of Music
    • Improves VoiceOver reliability
    • Improves connectivity with Made for iPhone Hearing Aids



    Bug Fixes

    • Fixes an issue in Maps that prevented navigating to some favorite locations
    • Addresses an issue where the last word in a quick reply message wasn’t autocorrected
    • Fixes an issue where duplicate iTunes purchased content could prevent iCloud restore from completing
    • Resolves an issue where some music or playlists didn’t sync from iTunes to the Music app
    • Fixes an issue where deleted audiobooks sometimes remained on the device
    • Resolves an issue that could prevent call audio from routing to car speakers while using Siri Eyes Free
    • Fixes a Bluetooth calling issue where no audio is heard until the call is answered
    • Fixes a timezone issue where Calendar events appear in GMT
    • Addresses an issue that caused certain events in a custom reoccurring meeting to drop from Exchange calendar
    • Fixes an certificate error that prevented configuring an Exchange account behind a third-party gateway
    • Fixes an issue that could cause an organizer’s Exchange meeting notes to be overwritten
    • Resolves an issue that prevented some Calendar events from automatically showing as “busy” after accepting an invite.

    iOS 8.2 could be released as early as Monday, the day of the 'Spring Forward' event, but may even be released a few days after. Jailbreakers should, of course, steer clear of this update, as it can not be jailbroken with any public jailbreak tool at this point in time.

    We will keep you updated as more information surfaces, so stay tuned!

      "Improved stability of music"

      Thank goodness, iOS 8 has handled large music libraries absolutely horribly. Crashes and is often unresponsive. You'd think apple would have made this a top priority and rolled it out as soon as possible considering their love for music.

      Padgoi, the latest articles have been interesting and worth comment. I work in an environment that allows me to be online all day. In the end I have access and ability. Hope that answers your question.

      I have a feeling the 8.2 jailbreak is ready to drop straight after.

      I have a feeling we'll have a TaiG jailbreak for 8.2 sooner rather than later.

      Is there a way to report mistranslation? In the Hungarian translation of Health app i can add my weight in kilogramms. I think they wanted to write mass instead of weight or i should be able to set my weight in Newton.

      The SI unit of mass is the kilogram. The Newton is the force required to accelerate 1kg of mass at 1 metre per second squared

      I read they are already in the middle of 8.3 so why even bother with 8.2? Just wait a few more weeks for 8.3.
      Or do what I've done and stay on 7.1.2. Its a lot better than 8 anyway. ALL previous IOS's are better than the next.

      Amen!!

      What this really means from Apple is: we screwed the jailbreak up, no bug fixes or nothing like that, just a big fat patch on the jailbreak holes. So yeah, stay away from this version people!!

      So iOS 8.2 has a major focus on the Apple Watch, which Apple needs to release at the time of the Apple Watch release. iOS 8.3 is mostly just OS improvements and isn't ready yet like iOS 8.2 is.

      Im stuck on that one, I want the watch but I'm really going to try and hold out on updating to see if a jailbreak is released following the update
