Apple rolls out iOS 8.3 beta 2 to developers

Apple iPhone 6-5

The second beta for iOS 8.3 was released on Monday, and, um, yeah. As per usual, Apple has added a lot of smaller features that might not be immediately noticeable. Improved login for Google services? Ok, sure, that sounds good. And a subtly improved Siri? That’s what this video suggests, so we’ll have that to look forward to. Ever since Siri launched I’ve been concerned about her pronunciation of potato, but it actually sounds natural now.

The eventual release of iOS 8.3 will also introduce features like Wireless CarPlay, a more diverse emoji selection, and support for Apple Pay in China, which is a big and bold move for the company’s service. It’s unclear when the public version of iOS 8.3 will be available, though a beta version will apparently come out in mid-March for users to try. Apple promised to launch its Apple Watch in April, so I’d imagine the final version of iOS 8.3 will be out right around then.

We’ll update this post as we discover features found in the latest iOS 8.3 beta.
