Aseara asteptam poate cu totii lansarea unei noi versiuni beta a iOS 8, insa compania Apple a preferat sa pastreze traditia doar in ceea ce priveste actualizarile beta pentru OS X Yosemite si sa lanseze cel de-al 6-lea Developer Preview. iOS 8 beta 6 nu a fost publicat pentru dezvoltatorii de aplicatii, asa cum ne indica o informatie mai veche pe care o prezentam pe blog, insa asta nu inseamna ca Apple nu l-a lansat deloc sau ca a incheiat procesul de dezvoltare al iOS 8.

Potrivit celor de la BGR, Apple a publicat a sasea versiune beta a iOS 8 si a trimis-o numai partenerilor apropriati, printre care includem operatorii de telefonie mobila. Pentru a ne dovedi acest lucru, acestia au publicat si lista cu notitele lansarii iOS 8 beta 6 trimisa celor care pot sa o testeze. Scopul acestei lansari este ca operatorii si altii membrii de incredere ai programului secret al Apple sa ofere un feedback in legatura cu ceea ce pare a fi si ultima versiune beta a iOS 8 inaintea lansarii Golden Master in toamna. Se pare ca cei care testeaza trebuie sa accepte sau respinga acesta versiune pana pe 5 septembrie, insa unii deja au respins-o din cauza unor proleme ale Safari.

Dupa cum se poate observa, notitele lansarii acestei actualizari sunt mult mai scurte decat cele trimise alaturi de versiunile beta precedente, iar noutatile sunt doar cateva corecturi de probleme. Aceste corecturi si imbunatatiri se concentreaza mai ales in jurul servicilor celulare, un lucru deloc surprinzator avand in vedere cui ii este adresata.

Dezvoltatorii de aplicatii nu vor primi, cel mai probabil, iOS 8 beta 6, si vor trebui sa astepte pana la versiunea Golden Master (versiune care coincide cu versiunea finala a sistemului de operare ce va fi publicata pentru toti utilizatorii). In conditiile in care iPhone 6 va fi prezentat in cadrul unui eveniment ce va avea loc pe 9 septembrie, Golden Master nu va sosi mai devreme de acea data intrucat, foarte probabil, iOS 8 mai are cateva surprize ascunse de Apple pana acum. Versiunea finala a iOS 8 urmeaza sa ajunga pe dispozitivele utilizatorilor undeva la mijlocul lunii septembrie, inainte ca iPhone 6 sa ajunga pe piata.
