iOS 8’s release is eminent with Apple announcing today that its new software will be released to the public on September 17th.

To get the App Store ready, Apple is officially accepting iOS 8 versions of apps from third-party developers.

“Make sure your apps take advantage of all the great new features in iOS 8, which will soon be available to hundreds of millions of customers around the world,” said Apple today in an email to its development community. Apps like 1Password have been testing iOS 8 features already, but now Apple wants them to get on the store.

The final GM version of iOS 8 was released today for developers to download and test their apps on. Apple encourages apps written in its new programming language, Swift, to be submitted.

Apple has also released its TestFlight beta service in the App Store so developers can let their colleagues run apps before they go live for everyone. A TestFlight FAQ has been posted for developers to learn more about distributing betas of their apps.
