    Default iOS 5.1 Beta 3 Released Today to Developers

    iOS 5.1 Beta 3 can be downloaded and installed by developers today.

    If you're an iOS developer and you're rocking an iPhone that has been registered for development and currently running an iOS 5.1 beta, you can open up the OTA (over the air) update section in your Settings application right now and download and install the new iOS 5.1 beta 3. You can download the firmware through Apple's developer portal in the developer section of their Web Site if for some reason an OTA update is inconvenient for you, or if you want to hold onto the firmware file.

    iOS 5.1 promises to bring not only better battery life, but also improvements to the functionality of iCloud. For example, with iOS 5.1, you will be able to delete individual photos from your Photo Stream, where right now you would need to actually delete all of them and go through the pain-staking process of setting up Photo Stream again across all devices and start fresh with nothing in it. This feature was brought to us with the last beta release of iOS 5.1, but it continues through iOS 5.1 beta 3. We are excited for this feature because it was welcomed by everyone who kept complaining that their personal photos wouldn't disappear from the public Photo Stream which was viewable from any device that you had linked.

    For iPhone 4S users, the, "Enable 3G" toggle will mysteriously be put back into the network settings in iOS 5.1 beta 3. With the release of the iPhone 4S, it was made public that you couldn't toggle 3G off to enable E (Edge/2G) to save battery life. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS had the feature, even after upgrading to iOS 5. It was strange that the iPhone 4S was suddenly absent of the feature and it left many people infuriated that they didn't have the ability to turn 3G off. To make matters worse, the iPhone 4S had bad battery life as it was.

    The last large improvement for iOS 5.1 beta 3 is that it holds information for Siri to support more languages. Apple promised that they would improve the useability of Siri for other languages at the unveiling of the iPhone 4S as they had promised, Siri was in, "beta." We see information pertaining to the use of the Japanese language appearing in iOS 5.1 beta 3 but we expect much more to be arriving in either future betas or when Apple finally releases iOS 5.1 as a whole.

    The update is for iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone.

    What are you waiting for? Get downloading developers!

    If it doesn't fix the blasted caller echo issue then I don't even care. Instead of adding features I wished they'd address bugs that have been apparent.

    It seems like the development of iOS and iDevice hardware is slowing down. I don't know how Apple is going to compete if this continues.

    last time around, at 4.1, the jailbreak that came with that weilded a bootrom exploit, let's hope the jb for 5.1 will also have a bootrom exploit for a5 (and even possibly secure a4 and below a permanent jailbreak for every firmware, just like the old bootrom 3GS!) *

    I've heard that i0n1c is working on the iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak, so all should be good if that is true.

    You'll have to wait for the jailbreak. Just like 5.0.1

    I hope the Bluetooth issue in carkits where the connection keeps getting dropped is resolved in 5.1. It's impossible to use right now.

    Doesn't drop the bluetooth (Parrot MKi9200) in my car and in fact my 4S and 5.01 is the first time I've been able to use the car kit to initiate streaming bluetooth music from the parrot itself. My old 3GS and previous iOS releases in 8/10 cases meant I had to initiate streaming from the phone itself.

    The main thing I'm hoping for is Siri to support looking up businesses in the UK

    A logical move for Apple to make is to open up widget development for the notifications window and more importantly, enable a customizable quick toggles widget. If they did that then 50% of why I jailbreak would be taken care of.

    the other 50% is because of themes - this also would be a super easy fix. Themes would also generate an enormous amount of revenue for Apple as well as expert theme builders in the iOS community - and by expert I largely mean the guys over on MacThemes and Deviant art - now those are real themes!

    Oh, really? Imagine telling your web-connected Apple TV, "Play 'Law & Order', season 3." Are you interested now?

    I guess this means iOS 5.1 will be available for everyone soon huh? I better go ahead and upgrade my iPad 2 from ~4.3/4 to 5.0.1 in case 5.1 breaks the JB that pod2g is working on.

    Speaking of, pod2g has a couple new tweets about the JB but nothing about when it may be ready.
