Apple has just seeded iTunes 10.5 beta 9 to developers, which can be downloaded logging into Apple’s Developer Program. Since the date of”Let’s Talk iPhone” event is approaching near, iTunes 10.5 beta 9 seems the last beta before it goes public. Apple is expected to release the final and public build of iTunes 10.5 (or may be iTunes 11) in the first half of October.
Here are the known bug fixes:
- “Scan and match” feature is not yet complete. Some users’ tracks may not be recognized by iTunes Match even if the tracks are available in the iTunes Store, and those tracks will be uploaded to the users’ iCloud storage. Some tracks may also be mis-matched to a different version of the same song on the iTunes Store.
- Music can only be added to iCloud from one computer at a time.
- Updating an iOS device to iOS 5 beta 7 may result in music failing to play. Users should turn off iTunes Match in settings and then turn it back on to restore functionality.
As usual this beta release is available for download from Apple’s Developer Program. Only those members can download it who are registered with this program which costs $99 per year.
If you are a developer, you must get it to check the compatibility of your App before the final and public releases of iTunes 10.5 and iOS 5.
In the event you don’t have developer account but still you need to have it on your PC, you can download it from these direct download links.
