Apple seeds iOS 5.1 Beta 2 to developers


If you have an Apple Developer Account then now is the time to hit the software update button! Earlier today Apple released iOS 5.1 Beta 2 to the developers.

The biggest change is the addition of a much-requested feature related to the management of photos in the Photo Stream:

NEW: Photos taken using iOS 5.1 can be deleted from Photo Stream on your device and will be removed automatically from Photo Stream on your other iOS 5.1 devices. Older photos can be manually deleted from your iOS 5.1 devices.

The new seed comes just two weeks after the previous iOS 5.1 Beta 1 was seeded on November 28. For more information and additional support resources, visit:

We know a lot of people have been waiting for Apple to add the download feature, how about you do you think Photo Stream has lacked this feature?

iOS 5.1 released to developers!

The iOS 5.1 beta 1 SDK is now available for download by paid devs at the iOS developer site. Sign in with your developer credentials to gain access to the updated SDK. You will need to download and install firmware via iTunes.

Because it cannot be said too often, make sure you read any release notes on-site. For everyone intoxicated by new technologies that might allow you to update using other means, I cannot strongly encourage you enough to go to the site and read the release notes. Installation alerts appear in a big yellow box on the main iOS dev page. The yellow box for 5.1 is larger than ever.

The beta is, as always, released under the terms of Apple’s NDA.
