iOS 8.4.1 beta 2

The second beta version of iOS 8.4.1 has been released to users in the registered developer program. The 12H318 build arrives a few weeks after the first beta of iOS 8.4.1, and the public release of iOS 8.4


No notable features or changes are mentioned with iOS 8.4.1 suggesting the final release will be a simple update focused on bug fixes, security enhancements, and other minor changes to the operating system for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch.

Users who are eligible to receive the beta build can find it available now from the Software Update mechanism in iOS Settings. IPSW files for a manual update can be downloaded from the iOS Developer Center at Apple.com as well.

There is no known timeline for iOS 8.4.1 final release, though typically betas go through several versions before a final version is available.

Separately, iOS 9 betas are available for public beta users and developers, versioned as public beta 2 and developer beta 4. iOS 9 includes a variety of new features and other notable changes, making it a much more significant update when it arrives as a final version later this year in the fall.

    I hope this fixes the locked rotation bug in the iPad Air 2 where the rotation locks if Reduce Motion is on. I bought a new iPad Air 2 last week which came with iOS 8.3, I proceeded to set it up and then updated to 8.4 which “broke” it. You would think that Apple’s updates would at least work on their current devices…

    Tell me about it Robert. I did the same thing a month ago then I became a public beta tester for iOS 9 and Mac OS X and none of the iOS 9 betas have fixed this issue.
    I report all the bugs to Apple via iOS 9, I have reported this one twice. I also used this website to report it to Apple before I joined the public beta program:

    The more we report it the merrier. Hope this gets fixed soon.

    Any bug fixes to Apple Music would be great. I’m headed back to Spotify as it sits right now.
