Apple Releases First iOS 8.3 Beta to Developers for Testing
Apple on Monday seeded the first version of iOS 8.3 to registered developers for testing. The release comes just a week after the release of the fifth beta of iOS 8.2, which contained fixes for bugs affecting Facebook app and calendar syncing.
The most-recent beta has a build number 12F5027d and can boast of several new features. In particular, iOS 8.3 users now have an ability to connect their iPhones to CarPlay wirelessly. Moreover, there’s a new emoji picker, which makes it easier to search for a required emoji. Apart from that, iOS 8.3 supports Google’s two-step verification making logging into your Google account faster.
There’s also a piece of good news for all the iPhone and iPad users from China as iOS 8.3 now supports UnionPay network. As noted in the release notes, the guys from Cupertino are currently working on launching Apple Pay in China in the near future, which is also not bad.
Those who have a developer account can download the first beta of iOS 8.3 right now. As usual, it is available via Software Update option or on Apple’s dev portal. This version may be quite unstable and glitchy, so I don’t think you should install it on your main device.
