Thread: Apple Seeds iOS 8 Beta 5 to Developers for Testing

  1. #1
    Default 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!

    Anyone install this yet? How is it compared to beta 4? I'm considering installing this if it's worth it.

    Installing right now and hopefully one of my apps that I have been using in a daily basic keeps freeze up on me with the previous Betas. And if this beta 5 still doesn't fix that problem I will not install another beta until the GM is out to the public..... I'll be back to let u know what's new in this beta aite!

    I skipped the last 2 myself, seems more of a pain to downgrade than anything

    I really don't see much of a change as far as operation...it's snappy, way less bugs on the landscape/portrait side. Still can't manually back up to iCloud(unless I'm missing something?)...

    If you app is crashing or freezing then the app needs to be updated for iOS8. Its in the developers court not Apples.

    Wow! Battery life is TERRIBLE on beta 5!!! I use my phone all 8 hours of work for only the preinstalled music app. End of the work day I'm usually at about 78-85 percent...now after going to beta 5, I'm only 6 hours into my shift and I'm at 35%!!!! AND, my phone is incredibly warm in my pocket. It's never done that before...yikes!!! Just a heads up to everyone!!!
