iOS 5.1 Beta 3 Released To Developers
Here is an exciting news for those who are waiting for iOS 5.1 Beta 3. The wait for the new operating system is set get shorter with the operating system already been released to developers.
If you are an iOS developer showing your skills on iPhone that has been registered for development and currently running an iOS 5.1 beta, you can open up the OTA (over the air) update section in your Settings application right now and download and install the new iOS 5.1 beta 3. The new beta version of iOS can be downloaded through Apple’s developer portal in the developer section of their Web Site if for some reason an OTA update is inconvenient for you, or if you want to hold onto the firmware file.
According to Apple’s claims, iOS 5.1 is promising to bring not only better battery life, but also improvements to the functionality of iCloud. For example, with iOS 5.1, it would be possible to delete individual photos from your Photo Stream, where right now you would need to actually delete all of them and go through the lengthy and time-consuming process of setting up Photo Stream again across all devices and start afresh with nothing in it. This feature was brought to the users with the last beta release of iOS 5.1, but it continues through iOS 5.1 beta 3.
For iPhone 4S users, the, “Enable 3G” toggle will mysteriously be put back into the network settings in iOS 5.1 beta 3. When iPhone 4S was released, it was made public that you could not toggle 3G off to enable E (Edge/2G) to save battery life. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS had the feature, even after upgrading to iOS 5. Shockingly, this feature turned out to be missing from iPhone 4S. People were infuriated that they did not have the ability to turn 3G off. The poor battery life of iPhone 4S made the matter worse.
Another feature for iOS 5.1 beta 3 is that it holds information for Siri to support more languages. Apple has promised that they would improve the usability of Siri for other languages at the unveiling of the iPhone 4S as they had promised, Siri was in, “beta.” According to some websites, there is information pertaining to the use of the Japanese language appearing in iOS 5.1 beta 3.
The update is for iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone.
