iOS 8.2 rumored to launch sometime in March

With iOS 8.2 beta 5 download having emerged earlier this week, we suspected that the final release could be upon us really soon, and now, a new report has indicated that it could be released to the end user in March.

However, a report published recently by BGR indicates that Apple may be aiming to launch the new software for its iPhones a little bit ahead of the incoming wearable. The report stipulates that Apple will actually launch iOS 8.2 sometime in March, which means it could come as early as a whole month before the Watch officially goes up for sale.

A launch of iOS 8.2 in March actually makes quite a bit of sense, considering how many iPhones are out there in the wild right now. As Apple has seen first-hand in the past, not every software upgrade goes without a hitch, and for the software that’s going to pair the iPhone with the Watch, iOS 8.2 is some of the most important software that Apple has launched to date. Staggering the launch of the software and the hardware means that if there are issues, Apple can address them accordingly.
