    Hello all,

    I had a quick question. Is iOS 8.2 going to be released today? I heard multiple rumors of this and just wanted to confirm if this is true.

    Confirmed, spoke with Timmy and Jonny this morning. They said Space Grey iPhone 6's get it first.

    Wait till 12PM PST and see what happens. Yes reports are stating that it's coming today but who knows... on the Shadow knows.

    But isn't that only if the owner has the Apple Watch and is standing under the Golden Arches at the right time?

    why would they release this before the apple event next week? iOS updates typically have been a week after the event.

    Wasn't it at 9 a.m. in Cupertino?

    ----------

    Yeah, I doubt it too.
    The only possible reason I could imagine is that Apple wants to give their customers enough time to install 8.2 to enable the usage of the Apple Watch. Without 8.2 you can't use an Apple Watch at all.

    why? 10am PST / 1pm EST is more likely, got an hour.

    Even then..., software releases have come at random times.

    I doubt it will be released today. My guess would be next Monday. If the reports are true that 8.2 will include an app for the Apple Watch, why would they release it before they announce it thus spoiling the surprise? Not gonna happen today.

    I think we are 2 weeks away from the release.

    announce the release of 8.2 next week at the event and release it a week later.

    I'm sure most of those features won't work until you get an Apple Watch. On the Galaxy the Galaxy Gear app doesn't work unless you have a Galaxy Gear watch.

    I'm thinking iOS 8.2 this week as it will enable opt-in for future beta tests, with the iOS 8.3 beta being announced at next weeks event. Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac tweeted a while back that the date for the public beta test was the 11th of March (however this was said to be a moving target).

    I'm not sure how long you've been in the iOS game but I recommend getting used to NOT expecting updates to fix your issues. It'll save you a lot of disappointment.
