Apple has released IOS 8 beta 5 to app developers today, which contains a number of bug fixes and improvements for the operating system that will likely be officially released for the iPhone and iPad later this fall.

The 269 MB download, which can be accessed via the iOS Developer Center, is just the latest in a string of developer updates for iOS 8 since it was first released a couple of months ago. We will update this post with more infomation about what is contained in beta 5 as soon as we learn more.

Some of the changes include new icons in the Health app for Body data and Data Exporting, a new iCloud option to download iPhone optimized versions of photos while keeping the high resolution originals on the iCloud account and a new Health panel found in the Privacy settings.

iOS 8 will have a number of improvements for owners of the iPhone and iPad when it is finally released to the public, including a new QuickType Keyboard, better integration with Apple's OS X, and much more.
