The public beta for the next iOS update is now live. Register now to try the latest features of the iOS 8.3 on your iPhone 5 or iPhone 6
Apple iPhone 5 or iPhone 6 users are in luck; the Beta test for the upcoming iOS 8.3 update is now live. According to gsmarena, fans must first register to their beta testing program website to be qualified for this beta test. As explained on that source, once you have registered, before you proceed to the update, you must need to back up every file you have on your handset to your iTunes then download the configuration profile from the website.
As stated on one of Apple?s notes, if you want to roll back to your previous version, you must “first erase the beta software, then re-install the latest shipping version of iOS, and finally restore from your previously saved iTunes backup.”
Features for the iOS 8.3 update that you may want to take a look at
Here are the features that we can expect for the upcoming update for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 iOS 8.3:
- Apple Watch App ? As report by gsmarena, the Apple Watch App is also included in the iOS 8.3 update. The app will still be installed on your handset whether you have the wearable device or not, pretty much like the issue on the iOS 8.2.
- Apple Messaging App filter ? On a different source, techcrunch reported that the Apple messaging app for the next iOS update will have several new features like the ability to split messages into two columns, flag a message as junk and many more.
- The Controversial Emojis ? Yes, included on this update is the brand new Emojis that you can try, as reported by gizmodo. You can choose from many new, ethnically diverse emojis for the iOS 8.3 update that you can send to your friends.
So far, these are the only new features that were announced for the upcoming beta testing for the latest and upcoming iOS 8.3 update.
One thing that?s bothering me though is the Wi-Fried issue on the iOS 8.2. Let?s just hope that Apple have already fixed this major inconvenience on their next update.
