iOS 8 beta 5 gets released to developers with more changes

Advertisement

As we get close to Apple’s official release of iOS 8, more and more beta updates keep pouring in for developers. After a couple of weeks of testing, it’s clear that there is still a long road ahead for Apple to consider iOS 8 to be final. There are still a lot of features that many of us want to test, like Continuity for example, but that have only begun to arrive in fragments as of today.

iOS 8 beta 5 is only reporting some bug fixes and performance improvements for compatible devices. Still, the extensive list of release notes includes new enhancements to HealthKit where you can now display your emergency data on your lock screen. Changes to iCloud include new options that won’t force you to choose between iCloud photo storage, and the phone’s storage. As we mentioned earlier, even though Continuity is still not fully working, we do see new options to allow you to relay SMS messages between iOS devices running the beta at the moment.

We’ll most likely see iOS 8 released to everyone at the same time as the future iPhone 6 gets announced, so if you’re still waiting for it impatiently, we’re only just a month away according to rumors.
