Apple seeds second betas of OS X Yosemite, iOS 8, Xcode 6

updated 01:46 pm EDT, Tue June 17, 2014

Feature additions yet to be discovered

Apple has begun distributing second betas of OS X Yosemite, iOS 8, Xcode 6, and updated Apple TV firmware to developers. Relatively few details are available so far. The Yosemite beta is listed simply as build 14A261i, and in release notes for the iOS 8 code, Apple states only that it "contains bug fixes and improvements."

The company is typically quiet about identifying beta changes, often until software is on the verge of public release. Developers however are likely to pick up on any feature additions, which tend to snowball as newer betas are seeded.

The first betas of all four products were introduced earlier this month at WWDC. Apple hasn't set final launch dates for them beyond a broad "fall" window.

    OS X Yosemite update I found allows you to call a cell phone number via FaceTime. It will try to connect to your iPhone to make the call. As in the previous update you can text any number through iMessage from iPhone, iPad, and Yosemite. As for now that is all that I have noticed.
