Apple Releases iOS 5 Beta 7 To Devs; Enhances Wi-Fi Sync and More
Apple has kept iOS 5 beta updates rolling at a week or two apart and this time, they’ve just released their beta 7 to developers. The full list of enhancements are still not clear as the release notes are not really written in mortal english, but so far we’ve noticed you’re now allowed to sync with more than one of the computers you’ve authorized with your iTunes ID through Wi-Fi. We’ll be trying that out and reporting if it does work or not.
Aside from that, Apple has also released the NewsStand developer kit on X-Code, so it seems that’ll probably work by the next beta. One word of warning I did notice on the release notes is that documents stored on iCloud may be purged with the upgrade from the beta program to the first GM candidate, so if you are using iCloud for document sync, make sure you don’t have any critical data store there.
We’ll keep looking around to see what we find and let you know. Developing..
