Apple has seeded the second iOS 8.3 beta to developers


Developers have been seeded the second beta of iOS 8.3 from Apple today, just a couple of weeks after the company seeded the first beta. This is actually kind of surprising considering that iOS 8.2 with the WatchKit SDK is still in testing as well, although it only appears to be bringing a collection of small bug fixes. iOS 8.2 is mostly dedicated to the Apple Watch as it will be bringing support for the device to iPhones. 

Apple today seeded the second beta of iOS 8.3 to developers, two weeks after seeding the first iOS 8.3 beta. The initial iOS 8.3 beta came as a surprise because iOS 8.2 with the WatchKit SDK also remains in testing. The beta is available through the iOS Developer Center. It includes Xcode 6.3 and a new version of Apple’s programming language, Swift. Apple has also released a new Apple TV beta for third-generation Apple TVs. While iOS 8.2 appears to bring only minor bug fixes to the operating system along with the WatchKit SDK and support for the Apple Watch, the first beta of iOS 8.3 introduced several new features including support for wireless CarPlay connectivity, a new emoji picker, support for Google 2-step verification, and Apple Pay support for the China UnionPay network. It also removes the “beta” label from iCloud Photo Library.
