iOS 8 beta 1 live, dev center down

We were looking forward to the iOS 8 beta download, but just minutes ago it looks like Apple are having some problems with making the beta available to developers.

Initially we had access to the iOS 8 beta 1 download via our developer account, but shortly after we were locked out with a message stating “We’ll be back soon”.

Now, everytime you try to access the Apple Dev Center login, you’ll see the message above which is due to the Dev Center being in maintenance mode.

Since we were able to log in once, we can confirm that the iOS 8 beta 1 is live, meaning that the iOS 8 beta 1 release notes are live too – Apple are just having server issues.


Another explanation for the Dev Center being down today, is that Apple may want to allow developers to access their servers with waves, since there are 9 million developers now trying to get their hands on the new beta.

We’ll let you know when the iOS dev center is back up, but for now it remains down at the time of writing. Are you trying to download iOS 8 beta 1 right now? Let us know your current status and if you have managed to get in.
