First of all apple is not going to give you any support on ios8 period as long as it's in beta..

You know what third-party means? It means that it is something developed by someone other than Apple. They announced the feature less than five hours ago.. Even if they allowed third party keyboards on the app store before iOS 8 is officials released.. which they won't.. Do you really expect a developer to design, program, beta-test, submit to the app store, and have it approved in under five hours?? Get real!!!

developer support. betas arent supported, but dev support has access to all the new features they put on their member website. i thought i missed something there and wanted to make sure
I find that difficult to believe when you cannot seem to grasp the concept of a beta!

Seriously... you called them... for an unreleased third party app...

Some people really don't need access to the betas.

With the images Apple are using with iOS 8, there is a caller screen and it's the full picture, are full-screen caller pictures back?!?
Noticed in the quick keynote shot and on Apple's 8 page right now.
Hope it's true. Testers should confirm soon.

You can reply to texts with different apps? You can make calls with different diallers? You can click on links and have them open in different browsers? I must have missed that in the keynote.

Does anyone know if it'll "remember" which sites I've opened this way and make that the default?

Might you happen to have a smaller type set in dynamic typing, and now it applies throughout more of the system? (I know in iOS 7 dynamic type is only applies to a few places).

Changes i've noticed...

...in the Settings app
- Show battery usage BY APP: General > Usage > Battery Usage
- Voice Activation: General > Siri
- Different Location Services options: Privacy > Location Services
- Different "System Services" location services: Privacy > Location Services > System Services
- Store/Delete Messages option: Messages >

...other places
Obviously the Bug Reporter and Health App
- I'd like to specifically mention that in the Health App, there is a way to make what Apple is calling your Medical ID. I can enter emergency contacts, allergies, etc, and this information can be used even when the phone is locked. I like this feature.... I remember having it on one of my old "Flip phone" LG's.

This is all I was able to figure out when I was at work... more to come when I get home!

I don't imagine there's any need. Apps that accept keyboard input will work with any keyboard. It's the keyboard API's that need testing, and those will be tested by people developing keyboards.

Seriously though, this is the main reason why I hadn't returned iPhone. This changes everything for me. It's not just Swype. There are other great keyboards out there (SwiftKey) which can now come over to Apple if they want.

Huge.
Defy burly agree here. Apple has me.back now as a costumer after 2 years on Android.

So my messages app won't even let me turn my iMessages on for my iPhone 5. Should I even contemplate restoring?

How long did it take everyone to update? I have an iPad Air, my UDID is registered on my dev account (not some random one from the web somewhere), but iTunes has been sitting at "preparing iPad for software update" for about 30 minutes now.

I am doing an update from 7.1.1, not a full restore.

Double tapping the home button and accessing the multitasking page (the one with contacts and apps) is extremely fast now.
So is going to an app from that screen.
