iOS 5

Apple has pushed out another beta version of iOS 5 for developers. The latest version includes a number of updates including enhancements for the iCloud service which allows you to backup your data to Apple’s servers and synchronize music, photos, documents, and other files.

The folks at BGR have posted the complete changelog, and for the most part it looks like iOS 5 beta 5 features bug fixes and stability improvements rather than new features. But there are also some known bugs still affecting the preview version of iOS 5 and Apple will likely have to spend some time fixing those before releasing the software to the public.

Just like the previous beta, users can download iOS 5 beta 5 as an over-the-air update over WiFi or 3G. Or you can connect your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to a computer running iTunes to download and install the update. You’ll need an Apple iOS developer account to get the latest beta from Apple’s developer portal though.
