iOS 5 Beta 6 Set to Expire on September 29
Heads up to iOS devs out there, if you installed iOS 5 beta 6, you might find it useful to know that sixth beta is set to expire on September 29. At that point you’ll either need to have installed a newer beta, which will surely have been released by then, or downgrade iOS 5 back to 4.
For the rest of us this is worth noting because each time an iOS 5 beta expires, there’s a flurry of speculation from some individuals that Apple is causing iOS 5 beta devices to not work, but that is not the case, the beta is simply expiring.
On the other hand, some have taken this date to indicate some sort of iOS 5 release day, since the date is within the “Fall 2011” timeline set by Apple, but it’s pretty unlikely that Apple would leave any meaningful dates openly available in their releases. Popular opinion at this point seems to be that iOS 5 will be released alongside iPhone 5 in October, with the possibility of pre-orders coming in late September.
