iOS 8.2 Beta 3 Already Released by Apple

While ordinary users can’t enjoy iOS 8.2 beta 3 release at the moment, they will soon be able to install this new firmware without UDID and registered dev account. The direct iOS 8.2 beta download links for anyone who is interested in looking at this OS version but doesn’t participate in Apple Dev program will most likely be available over the weekend.

The iPhone maker proceeds in developing and improving its operating system for mobile devices. Registered developers start to install the update and will soon share their impressions about beta 3 and wait for iOS 8.2 jailbreak posibilities.

The California-based company hasn’t said what changes iOS 8.2 beta 3 brings but they are probably minor. As for the next firmware version it promises to support WatchKit [Apple Watch SDK] and allow devs creating applications with glances, WatchKit and notifications.

iOS 8.2 beta 3 install at the moment can be done via OTA-update and through your Dev Center account. Once again, wait a couple of days and you will be able to download the firmware file without UDID.

Just like any other previous firmware 8 version, beta 3 of iOS 8.2 release supports iPhone 4S and up models of smartphones, iPod touch 5G and iPad 2+ models, including newer Air and mini.

What do you think about the risks of installing betas on your iPhone when you are not a developer? Is it curiosity or just the cool feeling that you have seen more than any other ordinary iDevice owner?

Hackers Create iOS 8.2 Jailbreak Before the Official Firmware Update

It is curious that while jailbreak iOS 8.2 release date is under question now because experts think Apple would patch the hole in this firmware version, hackers boast they have already jailbroken the next operating system for iPhone and iPad.

Ordinary users who happen to install iOS 8.2 beta without UDID cannot jailbreak it at the moment. Hackers who reported that their tool supports this version haven’t included such support into the public release. We are talking about TaiG, hackers from China who became popular when they launched the untether solution for Apple’s iOS 8.1.1 which cannot be jailbroken with Pangu program that, by the way, also comes from China.

TaiG team assures that they can jailbreak 8.2 version and install third-party tweaks and games on the iDevice. If you have the iPhone or other ‘fruit’ gadget which is untouched by hacks you can only download apps and programs from the official Apple Store [iTunes]. Those who risked to perform the jailbreak can do much more. They are able to download thousands of extra apps and tweaks from Cydia which is unofficial jailbreak app store.

Some people were really curious why Apple didn’t kill TaiG in 8.1.2 update as it had such chances because the Chinese team presented their program for 8.1.1 version. Now there are rumors that the Cupertino giant will finish the tast in the next major upgrade thus it is not clear whether you can jailbreak iOS 8.2 with TaiG once it becomes official or not.

Right now, according to hackers, this is possible but they can’t say what happens tomorrow.
