Apple has released the fifth beta to developers for the upcoming iOS 8.2 release. The update is available both over-the-air from the Settings app on iOS as well as through the iOS Dev Center. The release includes bug fixes and improvements. 

Apple has also released Xcode 6.2 beta 5 with WatchKit with build number 6C121 on the iOS Dev Center. A new beta version of Apple TV software for Apple TV (third-gen) is also available through the iOS Dev Center. The new iOS 8.2 beta 5 release carries a build number of 12D5480a up from 12D5461b.

Previous releases of the iOS 8.2 beta have revealed Apple is bringing back data points to the Health app added with iOS 8, while the new version also includes short descriptions for measurements supported by the app.

iOS 8.2 will also add support for WatchKit and the Apple Watch. Earlier this month we detailed an upcoming companion app for the Apple Watch revealing new features and functionality of the upcoming device.

During Apple’s quarterly earnings call to discuss its holiday quarter, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared that the Apple Watch is on track to be released in April, which will interface with the iPhone and iOS 8.2.
