[Update] Apple Releases iOS 5 Beta 5 to Developers

Share:

Update 2: The OTA update has appeared after following Apple’s instructions below. Others were lucky and didn’t have to erase all content and settings. Downloading!

Update 1: The OTA update is still making its away out…nothing in Canada for me here at least. Some users have been able to get it. Stay tuned!

Screen thanks to @rfrancey:

Apple has just released iOS 5 Beta 5 to developers. Build 9A5288d comes in at 787MB, along with new beta versions of iTunes, Apple TV software, and Xcode.

Want to install iOS 5 over the air? Here’s how to do it:

To install iOS 5 beta 5 using over the air software update, you must first erase all content and settings on your device by choosing Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Over the air software update can be initiated on devices running iOS 5 beta 3 and later by choosing Settings > General > Software Update.

More to come…

Thanks to Elise for sending this in!

    The OTA update is quite small at only 128mb. Compared that to the huge 787mb ipsw file that you have to download if you want to update via iTunes. And not to mention the added time needed to restore all your apps, songs, videos, etc…

    OTA updates don’t need to do that. Just download and it installs without removing anything at all.

    Good job Apple. Now release iOS 5 to the public!!

    Hmm, I had to erase content on my iphone 4 in order to see the update, but on my wife’s iphone 3gs it showed up without any erasing anything. It must be one of the settings 😀
