Apple on Monday released the second beta of iOS 8.3 to developers. The second version features several new languages for Siri including "Russian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and English for India," according to 9to5Mac. This is the first time that Siri has learned any new languages since iOS 6.0 was released in 2012.

Developers have also discovered that iOS 8.3 includes a new Wireless CarPlay feature, a more diverse Emoji picker, support for Apple Pay in China and that Siri's speech has been tweaked.

iOS 8.3 beta 3 is now available as OTA update from the Developer Center.

Developers not planning to give iOS 8.3 a test run can now jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta 1 and beta 2, thanks to the team behind the TaiG jailbreak. The new jailbreak tool for both Mac and Windows is now available on the TaiG website for those who still have the iOS 8.2 beta installed.

The first public version of iOS 8.2 is expected to be released in March followed by iOS 8.3 and 8.4 later this year. You can read about all the confirmed and rumored features from iOS 8.2 to 9.0 here.
