Apple after releasing 4 beta versions of iOS 8 is going to release iOS Beta 5 on 4 August according to BGR’s report. If we believe this BGR’s report then it means Apple is going to close iOS 8 testing cycle. It is also in news from some sources that the company will also release iOS Beta 6 on 15th of August. After that update, we will have to wait just for some weeks until in Late September, iOS 8 final version arrives.
Till now iOS 8 beta 4 is the most stable version from Apple. The issues that were present in iOS beta 1, iOS beta 2 and iOS beta 3 versions, all are solved in iOS 8 beta 4. iOS beta 4 came with some major UI changes and design in addition to its bug fixing for the old iOS 8 beta versions. iOS 8 beta 4 supports new apps that are going to come with the final version of iOS 8. iOS beta 4 came with application named Tips. Some months before, iOS beta screen shot was leaked, which had also this “Tips” app. Tips app basically offers users different shortcuts along with permission from user to exploit different new features which users were unable to exploit so far.
Tips also comes with another new facility. Users can leave their feedback on tips that have been provided by this App. Users will be able to mark the tip as “Helpful” or “Not Helpful”. In iOS 8 beta tips, app there are currently six features, but Apple has promised that they will add a new tip every week to it.
The Question arises, being Apple user, how you will be sure that iOS 8 final version will support your device. The answer to this is so simple, only one device is incompatible to this version and that is the iPhone 4, all other devices are going to be supported by iOS 8 final release.
It was a rumor about Apple that they scrape iPad 2 from the list of compatible devices. In fact, Apple is not going to allow old devices to get new updates. But there is a good news for iPad 2 users, they will be able to the iOS 8 update. But iPhone 4 users, you have to spend your life with old iOS 7 latest version because iOS 8 is not compatible with your devices.
