iOS 5 Beta 2 Released!

Well it’s a few days late by our sources calculations but the second beta of iOS 5 has been released!

Apple has added an animated boot logo as well as enabling Wi-Fi Sync!

Here’s the change log:

– Wireless syncing has been enabled for Mac OS X computers
WiFi Syncing

In iOS 5.0 beta 2, wireless syncing is now available for the Mac. It requires iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and OS X 10.6.8 or Lion. You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.

Wireless syncing is triggered automatically when the device is connected to power and on the same network as the paired computer. Or, you can manually trigger a sync from iTunes or from Settings -> General -> iTunes Sync (same network as paired computer required). Be sure your device is plugged into a power source when performing Wireless syncs.
If you find issues with apps, media and/or photos synced to your device, you can reset then resync. From Settings -> General -> Reset, choose Erase all Content and Settings. Then reconnect to iTunes and sync again.

In this beta, iTunes may incorrectly report Photos as “Other” in the capacity bar. Photo syncing otherwise works as expected.

iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and Apple TV Software beta 2 has also been released.

Also other notable issues:

– iMessage from betas 1 and 2 will not work, it is recommended that all beta 1 devices be updated to beta 2 to continue using iMessage

– iCloud servers may be purged several times before the GM is released, DO NOT RELY on iCloud for storage just yet as it will probably get wiped before the public release.

Grab it now!
