Apple provides developers with third beta releases of iOS 8, OS X Yosemite [u]

in iPhone edited July 2014
Apple on Monday moved on step closer to the public release of its next-generation operating systems, giving developers access to a third beta version of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite while updating a number of smaller components.

iOS 8 beta 3, which is available for download from Apple's developer portal or as a 388-megabyte over-the-air update, sports build number 12A4318c. The company says it brings "bug fixes and improvements," and it carries Apple's now-customary warning that the beta software should only be installed on dedicated development devices.

According to Apple, the new beta fixes a number of bugs -- and introduces some known issues -- with authentication, AVCapture, backup, battery life, Bluetooth, Apple's Bug Reporter, CarPlay, CloudKit, document providers, extensions, FaceTime, Family Sharing, HealthKit, HomeKit, and third-party keyboards, among others.

OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 3, meanwhile, is available as an update through the Mac App Store for users running one of the previous betas and Apple says the update is "recommended for all users." No further details have been provided, though some users have reported that Dark Mode can now be enabled via System Preferences.

Apple also issued updated beta versions of Xcode 6, Find My iPhone 4.0, Find My Friends 4.0, and Apple Configurator 1.7. Apple Configurator 1.7, which requires the latest Xcode 6 beta, is needed to issue configuration profiles for devices running OS X Yosemite or iOS 8.

Initially revealed at last month's Worldwide Developers Conference, both OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 are slated for release this fall. With the new versions, Apple has focused on more tightly integrating its mobile and desktop operating systems with new features like Handoff, which allows users to start an activity -- such as web browsing -- on one Apple device and continue where they left off on another.

    New QuickTime icon. Still not gonna use it over the one I like, though.


    And Dark Mode is in, which I WILL use.


    Let’s see... Notification Center now shows a text preview of what the day’s weather will be.

    1) I'm glad to see Dark Mode but it doesn't work well with the Menu Bar apps I have installed.

    2) So far everything seems to be working well, including Handoff.

    Now my problem with Dark Mode is that it’s not OS-wide. Finder is still glaringly white and bright grey, as is Safari. Apple ought to extend Dark Mode to all their native applications (and then make it extensible to third parties, just so they can build their own and then tie it into the OS-level switch).


    Never mind the new folders in Yosemite. So horribly garish. Replaced immediately with the custom icons I’ve been using...

    There's been a "Do Not Disturb" mode for notifications, available since the feature's been introduced with Mountain Lion. You can even enable it at specific times, like on iOS.

    If you're using an app that already has a dark theme (Final Cut, Aperture, etc. ) then you really wouldn't be seeing the finder windows anyway, but the menu bat will now match the app.

    Do Not Disturb, but other than that I don’t think so…


    I’d submit a feature request via Feedback Utility requesting a toggle for “sleep while full screen”.

    With the new iWatch coming out I better sell my old Apple devices and use that money to get the iWatch. I usually search 8-13 different sites to find the best offer, but I just found this company that compares all the buyback companies in one spot. it%u2019s called RecomHub.

    It%u2019s like Kayak but for electronic Devices that show you all the offers in one spot.

    Extensive console logging of NCLaunchstats may be a cause of reduced battery life.

    Workaround: Launch Notification Center, then reboot the device.

    Fixed in beta 3
    The CoreBluetooth State Preservation & Restoration feature does not work. If your application is jetsammed while in the background performing long-term action(s) with CoreBluetooth, those applications will cease and the application will not be restored.

    Bug Reporter
    Fixed in beta 3
    The switch in Developer Settings to hide Bug Reporter is not working.
    Workaround: Remove it from the Notification tab in Notification Center settings.

    Known issue
    Clients sending multiple simultaneous record update requests to the same zone in the private database may encounter CKErrorZoneBusy errors.

    Workaround: Clients should send update requests for a given zone one at a time. In addition, they should handle CKErrorZoneBusy errors by retrying with an exponential back off.

    The Address Book UI people picker has been changed for iOS 8. A new mode with new API has been added where the app does not need access to the user’s contacts and the user will not be prompted for access. A temporary copy of the selected person is returned to the app. See ABPeoplePickerNavigationController.h for more details.

    In iOS 8 beta 3, you must use the new mode. The old mode has been deprecated with this beta.

    See the new PeoplePicker: Picking a Person or Property sample project demonstrating usage of the new mode.

    Fixed in beta 3
    If the user selects a property from a unified contact, an incorrect person for that property may be returned by the people picker.

    Document Providers
    Your app needs the iCloud entitlement to be able to be used as a document provider.

    Fixed in beta 3
    Document provider extension will not load if changes are made to an existing document provider on device.
    Workaround: You need to either reboot the device or delete the app and reinstall it.

    Moving some files via UIDocumentPickerViewController may cause a crash if the file was not created locally.
    Workaround: Create a local file in the iCloud container and use this URL to move files.

    Sometimes, bringing up a Document Provider UI Extension will not show up after redeploying the app via Xcode.
    Workaround: Force-quit the app, and then it should appear properly.

    FileProvider extensions do not see the host app’s file removed when copying the file to a shared group container.
    Own app’s container does not show up in document picker.
    Known Issues

    Application extensions may behave unpredictably with respect to location access.
    Redeploying an extension may disable it in Notification Center.
    Workaround: To debug the Today view extension. use “Attach to process.”

    After redeploying an app, the Today view extension may not be launched, and sometimes its bundle display name becomes the name of the app.
    Workaround: Reboot the device.

    Extensions sometimes fail to launch when debugging from Xcode.

    Workaround: Reboot your device.

    Known Issue
    Content downloaded via NKAssetDownload doesn’t get returned to the app.

    Notification Center
    The schedule and intended use of widgetPerformUpdateWithCompletionHandler: has changed from previous betas. It is now intended as a convenient home for all data/model update logic. If implemented, the system will call at opportune times for the widget to update its state, both when the Notification Center is visible as well as in the background. An implementation is required to enable background updates. It’s expected that the widget will perform the work to update asynchronously and off the main thread as much as possible. Widgets should call the argument block when the work is complete, passing the appropriate NCUpdateResult. Widgets should NOT block returning from viewWillAppear: on the results of this operation. Instead, widgets should load cached state in viewWillAppear: in order to match the state of the view from the last viewWillDisappear:, then transition smoothly to the new data when it arrives.

    Fixed in beta 3
    User notification custom action buttons don’t show when context is only set to UIUserNotificationActionContextDefault.

    Workaround: Set the context to both Default and Minimal.

    Beginning in iOS 8 beta 2, the NSURLSessionTask class provides a new “priority” property with three associated constants: NSURLSessionTaskPriorityDefault, NSURLSessionTaskPriorityLow, and NSURLSessionTaskPriorityHigh. NSURLSessionTask priorities can be used to specify how multiple requests and responses to the same host should be prioritized. Note that the priority is a hint and not a strict guarantee of NSURLSessionTask performance.

    For complete usage details of NSURLSessionTask priorities, refer to the NSURLSession.h header file, which is provided by the Foundation framework.

    Fixed in beta 3
    Passes added on iOS 7 devices won’t appear in iOS 8 devices, and vice versa.

    Workaround: Launch all apps in portrait before rotating to landscape.

    Known issue
    On iPhone 4S, Weather is missing it’s background color, letting the wallpaper see through behing the condition animations.

    Subpixel rendering is now on by default for all web content. Websites or in-app web views with extremely tight design constraints may render differently. Solutions for each issue will vary, but use Web Inspector to adjust position, border thickness, and width or height of elements.
    In iOS 8.0 beta 2 and later, CSS object model getters (offset{Left|Top|Width|Height} and client{Left|Top|Width|Height}) return fractional double values based on subpixel metrics instead of rounded integral values.
    When passing information from a UIWebView back to a native app using a custom URL scheme, the URL must be well-formed or WebKit will not issue a load request, and thus the -webView:shouldStartLoadWithRequest:navigationType: UIWebViewDelegate method will not be called.
