    Apple today seeded the third beta of iOS 8.3 to developers, more than two weeks after seeding the second iOS 8.3 beta and more than a month after releasing the first iOS 8.3 beta. Today's third beta release comes just days after the public launch of iOS 8.2, which included support for the Apple Watch.

    The beta, build 12F5047f, is available as an over-the-air download and through the iOS Developer Center. Apple has also released Xcode 6.3 beta 3.

    Though iOS 8.2 introduced Apple Watch support, it brought only minor bug fixes and security updates to the operating system. iOS 8.3 brings more consumer-facing updates, like a new emoji picker and all new diversified emoji and skin tone modifiers. It also introduces new country flag emoji and updated emoji icons to represent the iPhone, iMac, and Apple Watch.

    Along with those emoji changes, iOS 8.3 brings wireless CarPlay connectivity, support for Google 2-step verification, Apple Pay for the China UnionPay network, and several new Siri languages.

    What's new in iOS 8.3 beta 3:

    Messages - There's an option in the Messages portion of the Settings app to enable "Conversation List Filtering." With this turned on, messages received from people who are not in your contact list will be filtered into a separate list.

    Apple Watch app - Since iOS 8.2 has been released, iOS 8.3 has been updated to add the Apple Watch app to the iPhone's home screen.

    No

    LTE Voice
    Known Issue
    LTE Voice does not work properly with Verizon.

    Workaround: If you are using Verizon, please set LTE to Data Only for this seed.

    Edit: Yes

    Will this update fix the iTunes Radio playback issue? Who knows Apple is too worried about their other useless service Beats.

    Those are beta TWO release notes on the Dev Portal still...If you look closely you will notice that. Appears the beta 3 release notes are lagging (as they often do!)

    Patience everyone...

    Yes. Just installed and was able to make a VoLTE call with no problem (I had to put it in airplane mode for 10 seconds after enabling Voice & Data before it would work though.)

    8.3 is supposed to have more performance improvements than 8.2, right?
