Apple releases iOS, iTunes beta 3, Xcode 4.2 dev preview 3


Just after two weeks since the latest beta update, Apple has just released the latest iOS, iTunes and Xcode betas and developer previews.

The next major version of iOS will feature a number of improvements to security, reliability, and will come packed with over 200 new features. The last two iOS betas have since been very buggy, from complications with third-party applications and games, to normal features not working.

iOS 5.0 beta 3 hopes to correct a lot of these features before it's rumoured to go gold this fall, just in time for the also rumoured iPhone 4S/5.

Apple has made some major changes to iOS since 4.3.x, including a cloud-syncing service that can spread across all your devices, backing up your contacts, memos, music, photos and much more.

iOS 5.0 beta 3 is available for download to registered Apple developers for the following devices:

  • iPad 2 (WiFi, GSM and CDMA)
  • iPad
  • iPhone 4 (GSM and CDMA)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod touch (3rd and 4th generations)
  • Apple TV 2G

Apple also already released an update for iTunes 10.5 beta 3 (Mac) and Xcode 4.2 developer preview 3.
