Today, Apple released iOS 5 beta 6, only two weeks after the company released iOS 5 beta 5. Apple usually releases 8 betas before they release the GM seed to developers that is followed by the public release which is pegged for a release later this fall.
Apple is now releasing betas more and more often, hinting that the final release is right around the corner. The over-the-air version of iOS 5 beta 6 for the iPhone comes in at 144 MB.
This latest beta isn’t known for major upgrades to the OS and instead addresses only “bug fixes and improvements” according to Apple’s description. iOS 5 beta 6 has not yet revealed any major upgrades but more features may become evident as Apple strengthens the betas and releases the last two expected betas including the public release.
Alongside, iOS 5 beta 6, Apple also released a new beta version of iTunes 10.5 with a preview version of Xcode 4.2, as well as iWork for iOS beta 2 and a new beta 5 of the Apple TV software.
Apple is rumored to release the final version of iOS 5 to the public in October alongside iPhone 5. The fifth gen. iPhone is expected to feature 8 megapixel camera, dual-core A5 chip, more RAM and a thinner design.
