Apple Seeds Second iOS 8.2 Beta to Developers
Apple today seeded the second beta of iOS 8.2 to developers, approximately three weeks after releasing the first iOS 8.2 beta.
The beta, build 12D445d, 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 2 with WatchKit.
According to the release notes, iOS 8.2 beta 2 includes fixes for keyboards that may not appear in Safari, Maps, or other third-party apps in iOS simulator and it offers Siri support for Singapore English.
Several WatchKit fixes are bundled in as well, repairing a bug that caused notifications to fail to open an app, an issue that caused WatchKit apps to stop working in iOS 8 simulator, and more.
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.
