Download 'yer update 'ye landlubbers!
iOS 5.1 Beta 2 has been released to Apple developers today from the developers page of Apple's Web Site. The build number of his iOS version is 9B5127c and it supports every iOS 5 device.
The update doesn't appear to come with any amazing new features however it carries over some updates from iOS 5.1 Beta 1 (found and reported by 9to5Mac) such as:
- A "geofencing" setting that can help stop battery drain with the Reminders app when you're not using it.
- There is now a 'Use Cellular Data' option to sync iTunes Match music in the iTunes Match settings.
Nothing out of the ordinary – just some minor bug fixes and tweaks. If we find anything else in iOS 5.1 Beta 2 we will keep you posted!
One thing to note is that iOS 5.1 is coming and its right on the horizon. The Chronic Dev Team's untethered jailbreak will work for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 users but iOS 5.1 will likely not be included. We recommend that the Chronic Dev Team holds off until iOS 5.1 is released to see if it will work on iOS 5.1 and if it does not then just release it for the older firmwares. iFaith provides a viable option for ALL users to get back on iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 if they need to so there are no excuses.
