Good news from Apple, BGR reports that Apple’s
iOS8 will ship with a bunch of
new features and improvements, including a way for apps to communicate between each other to share

“We want to share our holy grail with all
apps: the convenience of one-tap Logins and the security of strong, unique

Two weeks after the release of Apple’s fourth iOS 8 beta version, iOS 8 beta 5 has been pushed out to developers.
The new iOS 8 build comes right on time, as our inside sources said it would, and it brings with it a number of bug fixes and changes that should
help developers better prepare their apps for the upcoming public release of
iOS 8 this fall. Apple’s iOS 8 betas are only
intended for use by developers only on test devices, but many people use the
software on their personal phones as well.
According to BGR, Apple has another beta planned for developers, with iOS 8 beta 6 due to be released on August 15th.
