Apple Releases iOS 5 Beta 6 To Developers

Apple’s “Inaccurate Evidence” Debacle, Part 2: Smartphone Edition

It’s that time again! Right on schedule (with “on schedule” meaning “roughly 2 weeks since the last one”), Apple has just released the sixth Beta build of iOS 5 to developers.

You know what that means: developers, get to updating (Remember: OTA updates work now!) Non-developers pretending to be developers, carry on (Just don’t be a jerk and go reviewing applications.) And everyone else? Be happy to know that iOS 5 is one big ol’ step closer to going gold and hitting your handset.

Now, as for whats new in this build…

Though most are just crackin’ into beta 6 right this second, we’re not hearing much in terms of new stuff here — it’s mostly bug fixes and itty bitty spots of polish at this point. Which, of course, makes sense: Apple’s presumably nearing the end of the Beta phase here, so it’s less about adding new stuff and more about making sure everything that’s in there works as expected.

With that said, we’ll update you if we hear about anything new and noteworthy lurking around in this release.
