iOS 8 hero

Apple released a new version of OS X 10.10 to testers yesterday with Yosemite Developer Preview 6 bringing various UI tweaks and a new set of system wallpapers. However, an updated build of iOS 8 was not released to developers just as 9to5Mac had previously reported to expect. A report from BGR this morning claims that an updated iOS 8 build has been distributed to carrier partners for testing and approval, though, and includes internal release notes (below) for the carrier version. Apple released the final developer beta version of iOS 8 earlier this month on August 4th.
