    This news is everywhere on the internet, except here that is, unless of course I missed it. But I was wondering what our experts make of it:

    Well, here’s something we didn’t expect. Apple has just seeded a second beta of iOS 5.0.1 to developers. It’s hard to recall a time when the Cupertino company released a beta version of any incremental iOS update, but a second is almost unheard of.

    The first iteration of iOS 5.0.1 was released just two days ago. The update brought about all kinds of maintenance, including patches for the infamous battery bug and the Smart Cover issue. We haven’t noticed any changes in beta 2 as of yet…

    But if you have an Apple developer account, you can head over to the Dev Center and download it. We’ve actually been having trouble getting the full version of the software, so if you’re having issues you may want to try the over-the-air option.

    Remember, to download updates OTA, just open the Settings app, tap General, and then Software Update. If you are jailbroken or are not registered as a developer, you won’t be able to access it. We’ll let you know if we find any notable changes.


    iOS 5.0.1 beta contains improvements and other bug fixes including:
    ● Fixes bugs affecting battery life
    ● Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
    ● Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
    ● Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation
    ● Contains security improvements


    I am wondering how this factors in with the jailbreak we are all hoping and waiting for.


    Thanks.............................

    Not much except the "security improvements" line. Aka, jailbreak prevention.
    But the dev team already has it jailbroken.
