Apple Seeds Fifth iOS 8.2 Beta to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of iOS 8.2 to developers, three weeks after seeding the fourth beta and almost three months after releasing the first iOS 8.2 beta.

The beta, build 12D5480a, is available immediately to registered developers as an over-the-air update and it can also be downloaded from the iOS Developer Center. Today’s update also includes Xcode 6.2 beta 5 with WatchKit.

iOS 8.2 includes the WatchKit SDK, allowing developers to create apps, Glances, and notifications for Apple’s upcoming wearable device ahead of its 2015 launch. The first iOS 8.2 beta, with WatchKit SDK and developer documentation, revealed several new details about the Apple Watch, including its heavy reliance on the iPhone and the different types of content developers can create for the device.

Update: It appears iOS 8.2 beta 5 fixes a bug that prevented Facebook from working properly. Some early reports have also suggested the beta fixes the "GMT bug" in iOS 8 calendar syncing.

Anything that prevents Facebook from working should be listed as a feature, not a bug.

please let us know if you are serious or not. I really wish my iPad mini 2 would become as smooth as iOS 7.1.2, even better if as smooth as iOS 6 of course.

Where I work (a University) we are now buying Android tablets because they actually work on the network, and you now have to justify any IOS device, the view is, if it does not work on our network it is just a status symbol and a toy.


That's ridiculous.

My daughter's Android tablet is constantly losing network connection, and I have to delete the connection and re-add it. The iPads in our house have no problem.

Now I know why - her Android tablet is just a status symbol and a toy. Thanks for clarifying that for me. I now have no reason to try and figure out the Android issue - no reason to use my brain and figure things out - I just declare it a 'toy' and a 'status symbol' and that's it. Problem solved.

I wish Safari tabs didn't refresh when you have an active form on the page!

DAE have to type google searches into safari like 12 times before they work?


I seriously started using Bing because Google wouldn't load.

Yes. Yes it does.

Back on topic: I only hope it will be jailbroken when the apple watch comes out. Imagine what that dynamic duo can do.

Shouldn't they be fixing Copy-Paste in Safari first? It has been broken since iOS 8 came out....7 months ago.

fix the bluetooth problems, i still can't sync audio to my car after ios 8 came out!


Everyone I know with an Apple device doesn't have this (that's a hell of a lot of people), so I'm guessing it is a rather marginal issue.

Well I hope it fixes the total failure of IOS to remember/use the stored credentials for authenticated http proxies.

This was broken when IOS7 came out and has remained broken since. We have had it acknowledged by Apple this is a bug and that it will be "fixed in the next release of IOS". Well a lot of releases have come and gone including a Major release (IOS8) and it is STILL broken.

Where I work (a University) we are now buying Android tablets because they actually work on the network, and you now have to justify any IOS device, the view is, if it does not work on our network it is just a status symbol and a toy.

And currently, I agree.


OK, I call your bluff on your totally ridiculous affirmation (i.e. : Android with better WIFI on average.. can't even write that with a straight face). Tell me the name of your university and I'll contact their IT department and get the skinny on this.

Or maybe, like most who buy Android, they're buying those tablets because they are cheapskates... Not that they would admit to that of course...
