Apple releases third beta of iOS 8.2 with latest WatchKit support

Developers on Thursday were supplied with a new beta of iOS 8.2 as well as Xcode 6.2, providing the latest updates to Apple's WatchKit tools for creating Apple Watch apps.

iOS 8.2 beta 3 is identified as build 12D5452a. It's available to install over the air from a registered iOS device, and will also be made available to download through Apple's iOS Developer Center.

Apple has warned users that iOS 8.2 remains a pre-release beta, and should only be deployed on devices dedicated for beta software development.

In addition, Xcode 6.2 beta 3 is also available to download with WatchKit support. It's identified as 6C101.

The release comes just over a week after the second beta of iOS 8.2 was provided to developers. That brought additional support for the new WatchKit software development kit, and fixed a number of issues related to international languages.

The first iOS 8.2 beta debuted WatchKit support in mid-November, giving developers their first crack at creating applications for the forthcoming Apple Watch. Developers can create custom third-party applications, Glances, and actionable notifications for the upcoming hardware, set to hit the market in early 2015.
