Apple reportedly to wipe iCloudKit data for Yosemite betas and iOS 8, new iCloud features affected


The news world is getting rich in news about tech giant Apple nowadays. The latest in the line is that Apple has notified its developers about its plans of performing server-side data wipe up on private and public databases of CloudKit for beta versions OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. This wipe, as notified by Apple, will take place on 7th of July, and will result in cleaning the data for iCloud Photo Library, iCloud Drive and Mail Drop.


As per the rumors, 8th July is going to be the date of launch of third Yosemite Developer Preview and iOS 8 beta 3. If we keep the Apple’s previous trend in mind, we see that company usually seeds beta versions of iOS on almost two-week intervals. The same pattern for OSX beta updates was followed lately as well.

Talking about the second iOS 8 and Yosemite betas, both were provided by Apple to its developers first, and then after two weeks of that date, they were launched officially. Worldwide Developers Conference was where these were provided to developer, and it’s been almost three weeks since the updates were seeded.

iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite are rumored to get released in this fall. Only after the passing of extended beta testing period, the final release will take place.
