Apple releases iOS 8 beta 2 to developers

Hot on the heels of the first beta comes this new update, which squashes lots of bugs.


Less than three weeks after Apple announced iOS 8 at the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference and delivered the first beta to developers, the company has released iOS 8 beta 2.

According to iMore, the new update emerged Tuesday and is available via Apple's iOS Dev Center or over-the-air download on your device.

Apple's release notes (as published by BGR) indicate that beta 2 mostly deals with bugs in the OS, with a long list of items ostensibly "fixed in beta 2."

If history is a guide, developers can look forward to several additional beta releases as iOS 8 makes its way toward a fall release, though Apple hasn't announced an exact date. It will likely arrive in September, in tandem with the expected debut of an iPhone 6.

If you're a developer, hit the comments and share any noteworthy additions/changes you've discovered in beta 2.
