It is no secret that Apple has already released its most advanced mobile operating system the iOS 5 to the world. It boasts 200+ new features and is shaping to be the best iOS version yet. But it is not without its problems. One of the most widespread complaints when users installed iOS 5 is the seemingly degraded battery life. A fix has been found to curb the battery life issues but users want a more permanent solution without having to disable anything. Now after admitting that there's a problem that exists with devices running iOS 5, the Cupertino company promptly seeded the beta version of iOS 5.0.1 to developers.
Dubbed as Build 9A402, there are quite some important fixes that iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch brings based on the change log. As stated before, this build is mainly to fix the bugs that are affecting the battery life of devices running iOS 5 which is definitely a good thing. Another notable update with this firmware build is that it finally adds Multitasking Gestures for the original iPad. iOS 5.0.1 addresses some bugs that are present in iCloud documents. Australian users have something to be happy for since Apple improved voice recognition using dictation. In addition to the updates mentioned, improvements for security were also made.
As per usual, since this iOS build is currently for developers only. So naturally, before you can hope to download iOS 5.0.1 you need to have an account enrolled over at Apple's iOS Dev Center. As intimidating as it may sound, becoming an iOS developer doesn't require much at all. You just need to pay an annual fee of $99 and you're all set. No actual knowledge of programming is required. Although that may be the case, it is highly recommended for iOS enthusiasts. Having an account of course gives you access to early iOS builds such as the one mentioned in this report. In addition to that, you will have access to tools and documentations that aims to help you develop your own apps.
Again, this is the only legal way to download an iOS beta, although it will no doubt find its way into various file sharing websites.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
