Apple has released their upcoming iOS 8 to developers as they prepare to release the final version at the final quarter of this year.

The update which is still in its fifth beta stages is named build 12A4345d, and it is available through Apple’s over-the-air updating mechanism on iOS devices and can also be downloaded via the iOS Developer Center.

iOS 8 is expected to introduces a range of new features as Apple tries to recapture the market it has lost to Android and Windows Phone. The new iOS 8 is said to boast of an improved integration with OS X through Continuity, a Health app, Family Sharing features, interactive notifications, and a new QuickType Keyboard.

Apple has also promised that the new iOS would bring improvements to several key apps like Safari, Mail, and Messages.

Rumour has it that the iOS 8 beta 5 is the final beta version, making the iOS 8 final version release imminent.
