    Has anyone who has a developer beta tried the public beta and found any differences? I notice the public beta build is 14A299l and the current developer beta build is 14A298i

    In the middle of several books.
    The public beta has 'feedback assistant' included whereas the DP does not.

    Funny Thing:

    Handoff actually works on the Public Beta with the iOS8 Beta together! The setting for turning it on is not there but I just got a call on my phone and it popped up on my iMac instantly!

    Not true. I have DP 4; I have feedback assistant. Search Spotlight. Its there. Lol


    Handoff has been working with relative stability since DP/beta 3


    What I understand the public beta will not be updated as much as the developer previews so when we get developer preview five they probably will not get an update to their public beta maybe until the GM of OS X, and from what I understand the current build that was released to the public is pretty much identical to the last build released to the developers (dp4)
