• Apple Seeds iOS 8.2 Beta to Developers With WatchKit SDK



    On Tuesday, following yesterday's public release of iOS 8.1.1 to the general public, Apple has seeded iOS 8.2 beta along with the WatchKit SDK to developers for testing.

    iOS 8.2 focuses mostly on making iOS devices work with the upcoming Apple Watch, but as 9to5Mac reports, doesn't have much else to offer at this point in time.

    With WatchKit, developers can make it so that their upcoming applications and updates can take advantage of the features of Apple Watch. This includes notification integration, application syncing, and even applications that work together from one device to another.

    With the iOS 8.2 beta SDK, developers can now start using WatchKit to create breakthrough new apps, Glances and actionable notifications designed for the innovative Apple Watch interface and work with new technologies such as Force Touch, Digital Crown and Taptic Engine.
    Developers can grab this update from the Developer portal of Apple's Web site.

      Great point. Seems like a new move. Hard to imagine this won't remove the motivation to try betas for anyone that isn't using them main a secondary device... May be an intentional move to weed out certain people that have access to the betas?

      They still can. Apple always include that little blurb and on their developer forums the staff there always tells people you can't. But you can. As long as the firmware you are downgrading to Apple is still signing of course.
