Apple Prepping iOS 8.0.1 Seed for Carrier Partners

Apple Prepping iOS 8.0.1 Seed for Carrier Partners

BGR reports that with just a few days to go before the likely public release of iOS 8, Apple is preparing to seed its carrier partners with iOS 8.0.1.

While Apple is in the process of finalizing iOS 8.0 for a release to consumers in the next week or two, we have been told by sources that the company is already preparing to seed a new version of iOS to testing partners. iOS 8.0.1 is currently planned to be seeded shortly and should contain further enhancements to iOS 8.

Last year saw Apple release a launch-day iOS 7.0.1 update for the iPhone 5s and 5c to fix bugs on those devices.

Apple last seeded beta 5 of iOS 8 to developers around a month ago, and reportedly seeded a sixth beta to carriers a few weeks ago. Developers did not have access to the sixth beta, a move that MacRumors notes was likely to keep them from perusing the code for clues as to the capabilities of any next-generation iOS devices Apple has in the works.
