iOS 13 Beta 8 New Features, Release Notes, Changelog And Known Issues According To Apple
Here are iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 beta 8 new features, release notes, changelog and known issues according to Apple itself.
Apple has released again! This time, the Cupertino-based business has released iOS 13 beta 8 and iPadOS 13 beta 8 into the domain of the developers. And, with that release, like all others, comes a set of release notes and known issues which exist to highlight the current landscape from a stability perspective.
Once upon a time, it didn’t feel like Apple placed too much importance on actually keeping people informed when it came to software releases. This mentality seemed to apply more specifically to pre-release seeds of software which was in development rather than production updates. The mentality appeared to be that developers and those testing the platforms could stumble across the problems and more infuriatingly, stumble across a way to solve the problems.
Thankfully, those days are actually behind us now, which means that Apple seems to place a lot more importance on developer relations. This newfound approach means that each and every pre-release seeds get packaged together with a set of fairly comprehensive release notes outlining exactly what has changed with each release as well as any known issues and problems which may exist in the firmware. This not only helps developers and observers get an almost instantaneous understanding of where the platform is at and how it has progressed in comparison to the last set of release notes but it also helps developers immediately understand if any pivotal technologies within the platform that their apps rely on are broken.
We should all commend Apple for this ongoing commitment to ensuring that everyone is kept informed and kept up to date. Long may this side of Apple continue and long may the business embrace the development community as a rich source of knowledge, information, and assistance as it looks to ensure the quality of its products.
If you are an active developer and missed the release notes which were presented at the time of the download or just someone who will ultimately be using iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 on one or more of your devices, then Apple’s release notes for this particular beta 8 release are highlighted below. Check through them thoroughly to see if there is anything which could be showstopping for your app or software; if you are a developer, of course.
