UPDATE: 9to5Mac has found that iOS 8.3 beta 3 includes the Apple Watch app, just like the one found in iOS 8.2. There are also a couple of Messages tweaks: one will let you filter messages from those in your contacts and from others, and there’s also a new “Report Junk” button that can be used when you receive a message from an unknown contact.
After us regular folk got an iOS 8.2 update earlier this week, it’s time for developers to get a shiny new update of their own.
Apple is now pushing iOS 8.3 beta 3 to registered developers. The update is build 12F5047f and it’s compatible with the iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, and iPod touch (5th generation).
This latest iOS 8.3 beta comes to us a little more than two weeks after the previous beta update. Exactly what changes are included with beta 3 are unknown right now, but previous iOS 8.3 betas have included diversified emoji, wireless CarPlay support, Google 2-step verification, new Siri languages, and Apple Pay for China UnionPay.
Today’s update is intended only for registered developers, but reports have suggested that Apple may give the public access to an iOS 8.3 beta before its official rollout. That public testing is expected to get underway in mid-March, so it may kick off any day now.
