iOS 5 Beta 2

Apple on Friday released iOS 5 Beta 2 for developers, as discovered by ItsAllTech . The latest beta release brings WiFi sync to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

WiFi Sync was one of the features toted at Apple’s WWDC event, and allows iOS 5 users to sync their devices to their iTunes libraries without a computer. WiFi Sync is automatically activated when the iOS device is connected to a power source.

WiFi Syncing

In iOS 5.0 beta 2, wireless syncing is now available for the Mac. It requires iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and OS X 10.6.8 or Lion. You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.

Wireless syncing is triggered automatically when the device is connected to power and on the same network as the paired computer. Or, you can manually trigger a sync from iTunes or from Settings -> General -> iTunes Sync (same network as paired computer required). Be sure your device is plugged into a power source when performing Wireless syncs.
If you find issues with apps, media and/or photos synced to your device, you can reset then resync. From Settings -> General -> Reset, choose Erase all Content and Settings. Then reconnect to iTunes and sync again.

In this beta, iTunes may incorrectly report Photos as “Other” in the capacity bar. Photo syncing otherwise works as expected.

It is unclear whether any of the other over 200 features were released in the latest update, many of which Apple will roll out as more Betas get into the hands of developers.

Apple also released iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and Apple TV OS 5 beta 2 alongside the iOS 5 beta 2. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated on the latest iOS 5 news and updates.
