iOS 8 Beta release today, public this Fall

All we’ve heard about iOS 8 since the start of today is being pushed to developers by the end of today. Apple will be releasing iOS 8 Beta to developers today, while a full release to the public will be taking place this Fall.

For developers, grabbing iOS 8 will mean having to sign up as an Apple developer officially. If you’re not already an Apple developer, which you can do through Apple’s Developer hub. There you’ll find a $99-per-year fee included, and Apple’s SDK available for iOS as well.


iOS 8 will be made available for the following devices only:
iPhone 4s
iPhone 5
iPhone 5c
iPhone 5s
iPod touch 5th generation
iPad 2
iPad with Retina display
iPad mini


At this moment it’s not entirely clear whether Swift will be included in this Beta release in any way shape or form. Have a peek at our new Swift tag portal to learn more about the replacement of C in the developer universe for iOS and Apple’s mobile platform.


You’ll also want to have a peek at our iOS 8 portal and stay tuned for the Apple hub presentation of our WWDC 2014 wrap-ups. This will include at least one wrap-up each for the desktop and mobile sides of this equation, as well as whatever other analysis we’ll be needing to do. Stay tuned!
