Apple is now seeding the iOS 8 beta 2 to developers. It comes exactly two weeks after the Beta 1 went live and brings lots of bug fixes and a few new features.

Some of the critical fixes include a working brightness slider, purchases are sorted again by date in the App Store, and crashes does not occur when adding third party keyboards.

There are numerous fixes done on the HealthKit and Handoff feature between iOS 8 Beta 2 and Yosemite Beta 2. Apple's QuickType keyboard premieres on iPads, too. Finally, the Apple's Podcast app comes pre-installed with iOS 8 Beta 2, as it was with the iBooks app in Beta 1.

New settings are available in the iOS 8 Beta 2 - Battery Usage Per App, Disable All Notifications, Enable iCloud Photos for sharing.

There are lots of ways you can install iOS 8 Betas. There are reports for some errors upon installing iOS 8 Beta 2, so if you don't know what you are doing or you are afraid to loose precious data - you should probably wait for the official release this fall.

Side by side with the iOS 8 Beta 2, Apple is also seeding the second beta of Mac OS X Yosemite. You will need this beta if you want your Handoff feature to work properly.
