iOS 5 Beta 5 Released to Developers
Apple has released iOS 5 beta 5, the latest build is 9A5288d and the same hardware is supported as prior iOS 5 betas, including iPad 2, iPad, iPhone 4 GSM & CDMA, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th gen.
You can download iOS 5 beta 5 in one of two ways:
- OTA delta update directly on your iOS device – this is the easiest way to get the update and also has the smallest bandwidth footprint. You can access Over-the-Air updates from iOS 5 beta 4 devices by tapping on Settings > General > Software Update
- Download the device specific IPSW files from Apple’s iOS Dev Center
The OTA updates are by far the easiest, plus they allow you use one of the new and exciting features of iOS 5 in the process. If you’re not a developer, you’ll have to wait until the official iOS 5 release this fall.
In addition to iOS5 beta 5, a new version of Xcode 4.2 has been released for devs, as well as iTunes 10.5 beta 5 and a new version of iOS for Apple TV2.
