Apple is launching a beta program for its new iOS software, and it’s all in an effort to test new features and fixes, including fixes for an exploit that was discovered earlier this year.
The beta program is available to developers who are interested in testing new features for iOS 8.1 and iOS 8, and the beta will launch in the next few days.
The beta program will test features in iOS 8 including FaceTime, an iPhone camera, and a new feature that lets users download files directly from the App Store.
In addition to FaceTime support, Apple has added a new ability to turn off the microphone in FaceTime videos.
The microphone will be disabled if the video is not being played, and any audio output will be turned off.
Other improvements include an improved app installation experience for the iPad, improvements for the AppStore, and improved security and stability of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Apple also said it is rolling out a fix for a flaw that allows attackers to execute code on the iPhone.
That vulnerability was discovered in June, and Apple said it would fix it in the latest iOS 8 beta update.
