    Hey guys

    Let's share things we've noticed, things that are broken, screenshots of new features, etc.

    I'll be starting as soon as Apple uploads it!

    Will be updating the thread frequently so people don't have to read every post

    Supported devices : iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad 2, iPad 3rd Gen, iPad 4th Gen, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina Display and iPod Touch 5th Gen.

    For me, if the iPhone 4 is supported, I might wait until September unless people with an iPhone 4 use it and say it works well. I am getting the 4.7" iPhone when it's released, so I might just wait for that.

    ----------

    Later today, probably between 1 and 3 PM PDT at the latest.

    Have been contemplating the move from a JB 7.0.6 device to 7.1.1 and havent made the move...Have a developer acct so a move to iOS8 may be enough to push me. Should I go to 7.1.1 first or does that not matter?

    My cousin asked me the same question today, it doesn't matter. Go straight to iOS 8 Beta 1

    If you're updating right to iOS 8 from iOS 7, it shouldn't matter.

    Not supported on IP4 Only as far back as the 4S according to the keynote. So maybe you will get 7.1.2 soon :(

    Noted. It worked for iOS 7, though... And once I installed the GM it worked fine...

    For anyone that's downloaded the beta: is there a new beta version of iTunes to go along with it? I'm wondering if I can install the beta using a Windows machine and the current public release of iTunes. Thanks.

    This changed during the 7.1 Betas.

    Doesn't look like it.

    But, I'm using a Windows machine and did all last year during the summer Betas. You should be fine.

    There usually is, and that's usually a beta too. From the Keynote, I saw that the new iTunes logo was red, so maybe that might be iTunes 12.0

    You could check if there's an iTunes 12.0 beta; if there isn't, you should be OK.

    Looking forward to hearing if it's buggy or pretty stable for a beta 1 compared to iOS 7 beta 1

    There's no doubt it'll be buggy. Hoping it's not as bad as some previous versions of iOS betas, though. :/

    Thanks for the advice; I'll just be patient, and rely on you guys to experience it.
