There has been a lot of talk about the upcoming iOS 5 and the iPhone 5, which are believed to be released in the first half of October [for latest posts about iOS 5 and iPhone 5, visit our homepage]. Just a few days before, on September 1st, the iOS 5 Beta 7 was released for developers, along with iTunes 10.5 beta 7.
Just today, according to a report by BGR, they have received this news from a reliable source that Apple would be releasing the next Beta of iOS 5 on Friday. Many of us thought that, the iOS 5 Beta 7 would be the final Beta before the Gold Master version, which is reported to be released between 23-30 September for assemblers.
“We have received some information from a trusted source surrounding upcoming release of iOS 5 that could help pinpoint a more specific launch time frame for the iPhone 5. Starting off, we have been told that even though Apple seeded iTunes 10.5 beta 8 last week, iOS 5 beta 8 won’t be released until this Friday. After beta 8, Apple will introduce a Gold Master build on or around September 23rd as has been rumored.”
Remember, that the iOS 5 Beta 8 will be available only for the developers, as were all the previous betas. You can get your own developer’s account at Apple’s developer site at a cost of $99 per year. (via BGR)
