iOS 5 beta 6 seeded to Apple developers

Apple has just released iOS 5 beta 6 to its registered developers after only two weeks since the release of beta 5, which revealed a possible voice control feature. The company is charging full steam ahead although it seems the deadline is now less urgent. Originally rumored for September, the release of the platform along with the iPhone 5 are now speculated for early October.

In addition to iOS 5 beta 6, Apple has released iTunes 10.5 beta 6. This iTunes beta is required for syncing devices with this latest iOS 5 beta to the iCloud. Apple has also seeded Xcode 4.2 developer preview 6 today, which is necessary for compatibility with developer devices running this latest iOS 5 beta. The update is available to all versions of the iPad, all version of the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS, and the 3rd and 4th generations of the iPod touch.

iOS 5 was first announced back at WWDC 2011 and is expected to deliver over 200 new features. Some of these features include a fully revamped notifications system, deep Twitter integration, OTA software updates, and of course support for the iCloud. For a more in-depth summary of the top ten new features, make sure to take a look at our WWDC wrap-up.
