Apple Now Lets Users Download iOS Beta Software Updates, Starting With iOS 8.3.

APPLE HAS LAUNCHED its first-ever iOS beta for version 8.3, allowing members of the general public to test the software ahead of release for the first time. Those interested can head over to Apple’s new Beta Software Program website and enter their details, although when we attempted to sign up there was no option available for the iOS beta. Those who do manage to apply shouldn’t expect too many exciting features, as Apple explains: “The iOS 8.3 Beta includes improved performance, increased stability, bug fixes and a redesigned Emoji keyboard. “This release also supports additional language and country support for Siri: English (India, New Zealand), Danish (Denmark), Dutch (Netherlands), Portuguese (Brazil), Russian (Russia), Swedish (Sweden), Thai (Thailand), Turkish (Turkey).” Apple’s next major software release, iOS 9, is also tipped to be made available through the software beta programme, following its unveiling at WWDC in June. However, iOS 9 will apparently introduce a handful of treats, including transport directions and indoor mapping for Apple Maps, and split-screen multitasking for iPads. µ

When the public version of iOS 8.3 is released, it will have performance improvements, bug fixes, racially diverse emoji, Google’s 2-step verification, Apple Pay integration for China UnionPay, support for the CarPlay platform and new languages for Siri. The Messages app in iOS 8.3 will have a feature called “Conversation List Filtering.” Through this feature, you will be able to filter spam messages and separate messages from your actual contacts. iOS 8.3 also includes the Apple Watch app that was introduced in iOS 8.2.
