Apple on Monday released two major software updates for developers that signify the company’s progression to full releases of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. iOS 8 Beta 5 was pushed out earlier today, and the company also released the fifth version of the OS X Yosemite Developer Preview. This isn’t the same version as the public beta, which launched recently and should also receive a similar update in the near future.

We’ve been testing iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite betas and, by far, OS X Yosemite is a much more stable experience. We haven’t seen any major issues with it, while iOS 8 has been plagued with bugs that have made it hard to use on a daily driver. Apple hasn’t detailed what’s new in this release, but it’s likely the latest Developer Preview includes bug and performance improvements, as earlier versions have.

Developers should see the update in the App Store now, which can easily be applied over the air. Hopefully the latest public beta of OS X Yosemite hits soon, too, and we’ll let you know when it does.
