It’s time again to sync up your iDevices and try out a new iOS. Only if you are a developer, that is. That’s right, Apple has released the sixth beta version of iOS 5 to registered developers. It was only two weeks ago when beta 5 was released into the wild.
Developers (and non-developers with developer accounts) everywhere are now downloading a whole suite of new beta software form Apple’s Developer Portal. Alongside the new beta of iOS, Apple has also released new Betas for iTunes, iWork for iOS, Xcode, and iOS for Apple TV. Unfortunately, we don’t have much information regarding the contents of these releases.
For those of us who aren’t devs, news like this is also good. The official release notes is a laundry list of bug fixes and polish, which means Apple is probably getting feature set with iOS 5. That would mean that the beta stage is coming to a close, and a full release is coming very soon.
Like I said, it doesn’t look like anything shiny and new has been built into these betas. However, if we find anything interesting, we will update this post to let you know. Keep your eyes here for more information. If you are interested, BGR has posted the complete change log.
