Things are moving quickly in Cupertino. Today they announced iOS 8.2 beta. More importantly, it includes WatchKit, allowing developers to being creating watch apps. Important note, there is no restoring to an earlier version of iOS once you install iOS 8.2 beta.

I'm not sure I believe that. Do you have a source? You should always be able to restore to a firmware version that is being signed. 8.1 is being signed, so you should be able to restore to that if you don't want to stay on the beta.

That doesn't make sense. I'm still skeptical. If you're having problems, you've got to be able to get out of a beta and back onto an official public version. There's no reason you wouldn't be able to downgrade to a signable version of iOS.

I agree. Seems odd. I vaguely remember something similar happening with iOS 7, but there was a workaround.

I'm with Europa here, you should always be able to get back to a publicly available version of iOS. Reason being you shouldn't end up temporarily bricked until the next working iOS beta.

Back on topic - can't wait for the iWatch!
