Yesterday Apple released the iOS 8.2 beta 5. So the registered developers allowed to download iOS 8.2 beta 5 on their devices compatible for this. They can download this update on any iPhone, iPad or iPod running any previous iOS 8.2 beta versions such as iOS 8.2 beta 3,iOS 8.2 beta 2… This update arrives with build number 12D5480a. This is made available as an OTA update. And registered developers can also download the IPSW files directly from the Apple’s development center. Apple announced that this iOS 8.2 beta 5 download included several bug fixes and performance improvements. The Xcode 6.2 beta 5 and WatchKit also added with this update.
Apple WatchKit and Xcode 6.2 beta 5 will assist developers to initiate building new apps for the forthcoming Apple Watch. They can also create glances and notifications for the Apple Watch. It is rumored that Apple Watch will be released in March or April. The latest Xcode has brought the newest WatchKit tools which is very useful to the developers.
As usual Apple Company has not given any clue, when iOS 8.2 released to the public. Since the release of iOS 8.2 beta 1 in last November, five beta versions have been released so far, within three months of time period. It clearly shows the company’s strict testing process. The latest iOS 8.1.3 also released to the public in last week. iOS 8.2 beta 5 download released just one week after that. So we cannot predict when Apple will release iOS 8.2 to the public.
It seems that iOS 8.2 will include several new and updated features for Apple Watch. By using this iOS 8.2 beta 5 download the registered developers can test this update for bugs. This is already included few bug fixes. For example, it fixed the “GMT bug” caused some errors in iOS 8 calendar syncing. Also fixed the issue that prevent Facebook working properly.
