Secondo quanto riportato da BGR, Apple avrebbe rilasciato ai suoi “testing partners” la beta 6 del sistema operativo iOS 8. Questa nuova release, probabilmente l’ultima beta prima della versione finale “GM”, potrebbe arrivare in serata anche sui device degli sviluppatori registrati al programma di Apple.

Gli operatori partner di Apple avrebbero tempo fino al 5 di Settembre per approvare questa build anche se pare che si sia stato già rilevato un problema nella riproduzione di YouTube nel browser Safari. Sarebbero stati invece corretti diversi bug presenti nella beta 5.

Stando alle ultime indiscrezioni, Apple potrebbe tenere il suo keynote di presentazione del nuovo iPhone 6 il prossimo 9 Settembre. Contestualmente potrebbe essere rilasciata al pubblico la versione finale di iOS 8.
