After announcing last week that iOS 8 will be released to the public on September 17th (that’s tomorrow), Apple invited developers to begin submitting their apps and app-updates for the new firmware. In fact, it’s already approved a number of iOS 8-optimized apps into the App Store.
But there’s a problem that you’ve probably noticed if you’re running a beta version of iOS 8 right now: extensions for many iOS 8 apps aren’t working properly. According to MacRumors, the issue seems to be related to code-signing on Apple’s end, and it’s currently working on a fix.
The site points to OmniFocus 2, which was updated over the weekend with a new Notification Center extension, and PCalc, as two high profile apps experiencing the issue. Right now, it’s only affecting developers on beta versions of iOS 8, but the public release is less than 24 hours away.
Extensions are a way for developers to extend their app’s functionality into other apps, and throughout the entire system. Apple is opening up its mobile platform more than ever before in iOS 8, with features like third-party Touch ID access, custom keyboards, and Notification Center widgets.
We’ll let you know as soon as iOS 8 becomes available for download tomorrow.
