iOS 8 Beta 5 & Yosemite Dev Preview 5 Update

On Monday, Apple updated the iOS 8 to Beta 5 and Mac OS X Yosemite to Developer Preview 5 (DP5).  This article gives some useful links to learn more about iOS 8 and Yosemite.

Upgrade Process

The upgrade of iOS 8 on my iPad Air took about 22 minutes, noticeably faster than Beta 4.  The download took only 3 minutes and the rest of the time was on the device preparing, installing and rebooting.  The Yosemite update took about 17 minutes total, which is a little faster than Dev Preview 4.

There appears to be less changes in these updates to Mac and iPad OSes, which may explain their faster upgrade times.  However, on an iPod Touch 5th gen (the latest model available) it took about 40 minutes, a little more than Beta 4.  A part of this increase may be due to App Store traffic at the time I downloaded it.  But the local processing also took longer than previous updates for the iPod.
