iOS 8 beta 6 release notes likely August 25

This article has been updated since iOS 8 beta 6 failed to appear after Apple updated the dev portal with Yosemite Preview 6 and Xcode 6 beta 6. See the update below this article.

Original article from here: You will be able to read the iOS 8 beta 6 release notes in full within the next 3 hours thanks to Apple allowing everyone to view the page where that update will appear.

Non-Apple developers won’t be able to access the secure area that will contain the iOS 8 beta 6 download, although the developer portal release notes can be seen on this very page here. Many of Product Reviews readers already know about this page, but those of you that don’t and want to see the full changes once they appear should bookmark the linked page in this paragraph.

If you visit that link right now, you’ll see the title states “iOS SDK Release Notes for iOS 8.0 Beta 5”. At 6PM UK time and 10AM PST, you’ll see the title change to beta 6 with the changelog including errors that are marked “fixed in beta 6”. You can see a good number of “fixed in beta 5” at this time, although they will be replaced within the next 3 hours.


Apple supplies the information on the said page to help developers plan with the adoption of new APIs, to see what’s changed before developing with the next preview build, and of course as a quick reference for news websites and blogs reporting changes. What do you hope to see fixed within the iOS 8 beta 6 release notes?

Update August 19: Apple ended up releasing OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 and Xcode 6 beta 6, but iOS 8 beta 6 failed to appear within the dev portal. This can only mean that there will be a beta 6 next week on August 25th, or next will be a Gold Master in September. Personally, we’d still expect iOS 8 beta 6 to arrive, so it will likely be next Monday now.
