Apple has just released iOS 5.1 beta 3 firmware for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G, 3G, iPad 2 and iPad 1. iOS 5.1 beta 3 released a month after iOS 5.1 beta 2. And it still available only for the developer in the Apple’s Dev Center. iOS 5.1 beta 3 is available over-the-air update or in full original ipsw files.
Two weeks before Christmas day, the company then released beta 2 of iOS 5.1 which was given build number 9B5127c. One update included in this release was the ability to delete images from a user’s photo stream which is a definite bonus addition consider the previous alternative was deleted all or nothing.
As per all beta releases, it was available for download to registered developers.
The latest beta weights in at a 76.3MB download and it looks as though Apple are giving nothing away with what it contains with the release information saying “This beta version of iOS 5.1 contains bug fixes and improvements.”
If you are currently running iOS 5.1 beta 2 it may be worthwhile checking your settings application to see if an over the air update is available for you. Make sure to connect to Wi-Fi for the download so as to not receive any cellular data charges due to the relatively large download.
