Developers get iOS 5 beta 5

Developers get iOS 5 beta 5The full consumer version of iOS 5 is just around the corner, and this weekend developers got their hands on a spanking new beta version, namely beta 5. More specifically, it's build 9A5288d, should ye care.

The latest beta version for developers seems to contain a number of bug fixes rather than introducing any major new features.

Hearing Aid Mode is thought to be one of the few/only features new to iOS 5 beta 5. It “Improves compatibility with hearing aids in some circumstances,” however “may reduce 2G cellular coverage.”

Interestingly, the iOS 5 beta 5 update was made available over the air. One of the new iOS 5 features discussed by Scott Forstall at WWDC in June was PC Free; you’ll no longer have to connect to iTunes to update iOS.

iOS 5 is expected to land in September, alongside the new iPhone. And, bizarrely, an iPod Touch with 3G. Isn’t that just an iPhone?
