    I'm new to running betas so maybe some of you experienced folks can answer this. In the past, how quickly have apps updated in the past during the beta phase? Do some changes from one beta to the next sometimes make it so that apps start working?

    I installed beta 1 yesterday but had to revert back because of all the apps I have, the one app I have to have working does not (good for enterprise). I thought the beta was pretty stable for me with just minor little things that I noticed. I also can't wait for some 3rd parties to release keyboards.
    Sometimes a beta update might make an app work again but don't expect full support until closer to iOS 8 launch

    This is an off-topic question, but how long does a beta version last? How many days, weeks, months until it expires?

    It varies. Usually two weeks to a month.

    I'll downgrade when I know that there will be a time when I can't update, but what happens when you don't?

    But the betas usually overlap a bit. So as long as you update reasonably promptly you'll be fine.

    I saw somewhere online that beta 1 will expire on July 16th (might have been 15th).

    Whatsapp doesn't work. Even if you reinstall, disable icloud backup and remove current chats, it starts to crash after a while. When you want to type some stuff it also crashes and when you get long messages from friends it crashes.

    So Whatsapp should be on the "doesn't work" list.

    Thank you! I was looking through this thread to see if Office for iPad was working. That's cool it does.

    However, I think I'll wait till Beta 2 to update my iPad 3.

    Like others have said Apps cannot be updated to support iOS 8 yet this period is for developers to update and fix their app to run on iOS 8 but they cannot push out the update although with the new test flight feature i wonder if they could use that feature before the iOS 8 is officially released.

    Sometimes as the betas progress we will see restored functionality of apps that were previously broken but there is never a guarantee. That is why they say if you are not a developer do not install the beta on your main device. Since a lot of the features for iOS 8 come in the form of new APIs we will not see the full benefit until the fall.
