Apple has seeded the first build of iOS 8.2 to developers.
Following the public release of iOS 8.1.1, on Monday, the company has begun focusing on the next major release of iOS 8. As previously mentioned, this build specifically contains support allowing developers to begin testing and integrating their future Apple Watch apps into their existing iOS apps – with WatchKit.
Apple is yet to issue official release notes for this new build (12D436), but the company has provided some information on what has changed in the next version of Xcode.
Xcode 6.2 includes SDKs for iOS 8.2 and OS X versions 10.9 and 10.10. To develop apps targeting prior versions of OS X or iOS, see the section “About SDKs and the iOS Simulator” in What’s New in Xcode available on developer.apple.com, or from the Help > What’s New in Xcode command when running Xcode.
Those looking to get started developing their own apps for iOS 8 can head over to the Mac App Store, today, where they’ll find the current version of Xcode (6.1) – which doesn’t yet support the creation of Apple Watch apps, available to download for FREE.
