We knew the iOS 8 beta 2 download would likely be live for developers at some point today or yesterday, and that time has arrived with the release notes being updated to reflect changes with the latest software update. In this second preview we hope to see a number of fixes to services such as Handoff, although we are yet to get hands-on and offer Product Reviews readers more insight into the changelog.
In the coming hours we’ll list exactly what changed, and will test how iOS 8 beta 2 performs with our developer compared to the first release. In particular, we hope to see Handoff working smoothly on an iMac running OX X 10.10 preview 2 with that download today as well.
Some apps have been working great in iOS 8 like Forge of Empires and others have had problems like WhatsApp, so today we’ll also look to see if WhatsApp is now working in the second beta. It’s good to remember, the WhatsApp developer might need to fix issues and release a new version later this year around the time of the public launch.
Settings crashing and camera roll issues – after installing iOS 8 beta 2 on both an iPad mini and iPhone 5, we’ve noticed the previous problems with the settings screen opening then crashing are gone along with the photo roll issue.
Changes within the iOS 8 beta 2 release notes will be listed below in the next couple of hours and the latest build is 12A4297e.
