iOS 8 Beta Version

Last updated: October 7, 2014 at 23:57 pm

Looking to download iOS 8 beta on your computer? Before we go any further, make a note that these iOS 8 betas are primarily for developers. Consumers, who are not involved in iOS coding, shouldn’t “test” these firmwares.

In reality, you can, if you are curious. But remember that these betas are called betas for a reason: they are not stable. You will find these custom iOS files will sometimes crash, freeze, and reboot your Apple device.

Apple iOS 8 betas are always generally buggy, and they are fixed in the next update. And next update comes with another set of problems, that are solved again. This goes on for weeks and one fine day the firmware is finally launched.

In this “regularly” updated article we will share with you the technical details of each iOS 8 beta version, and see how to download, install this firmware on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
