ios 8 full features list

Apple on Monday released iOS 8 beta 5 to developers, sticking to its two week launch cycle. Beta 4 hit two weeks ago—you can check out a video for that below—while iOS 8 itself was announced just over two months ago, so everything seems to be going along swimmingly. With September just around the corner, we’re quickly nearing the expected release of the final version, which will introduce features such as an improved Spotlight, Health, support for third-party keyboards, and much more.

We’ll be doing a video on all the big changes, so stay tuned for that later on in the day. In the last beta, Apple actually introduced a number of features, including a new Tips app, a redesigned Control Center and the usual bug fixes and enhancements. Of course, beta software is always the most stable experience (beta, duh), so if you have thoughts about going back to iOS 7 until the final version of iOS 8 is available, you can learn how to do so here.
