iOS 5 Beta 1 Download on Dev Center

Developers can now check out all the new fancy iOS 5 features first hand with the first pre-release version of iOS 5 beta 1. The download is accessible to all registered developers through the iOS Dev Center.

iOS 5 Beta 1 comes as build 9A5220p and supports all iPad 2 models, iPad, iPhone 4 GSM & CDMA, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4th and 3rd gens.

Those without an iOS developer account will have to wait for the public release date this fall.

Update: if you’re brave enough, you can install and run iOS 5 beta without a dev account, it is not recommended and could lead to problems.

    Anyone can download iOS 5 beta IPSW, but you will need either need to be a developer to activate the UDID yourself, or get iOS5 UDID activation through a registered developer.

    Downgrading to iOS 4 after iOS 5 is a pain, and iOS 5 is still buggy, I would not use it on your primary iPhone. This is why it is a developer beta and not a public release, there are issues to sort out.

    @Marley, can share it out? Please?

    • FYI says:

      Without UDID activation with a provisioning profile the iOS 5 beta IPSW file will not be of much use to you.

      BTW for AppleTV 2 it is technically iOS 4.4 but still listed as build 9A4220p for whatever reason. I wonder why they don’t just call it iOS 5?
