Yes, just approximately within 2 weeks of seeding the Beta 5 version of the latest iOS 5 software, Apple has just moments ago released the Beta 6 version to developers.
You can download it with OTA updates (Over The Air update through an Internet Connection where you can download the update on your phone and upgrade it directly without the need of any PC or Mac). You can also download the Upgrade as a separate file from Apples Developers website but Apple encourages developers to go for the OTA mode.
Developers or iDevice lovers who have an Apple developers account can download it and enjoy the new Beta 6 version. This can be considered as a huge step to the final version as the Official Release of the iOS 5 comes closer.
This new version is not having any new features but instead Apple has concentrated on fixing bugs and giving finishing touches. As the Beta phase is nearing an end it does makes sense of Apple checking if their iOS is working good as designed.
In addition to iOS 5 Beta 6 Apple has also released:
- Beta 6 of iTunes 10.5 , which is required for syncing with devices that carry iOS 5 beta 6.
- Xcode 4.2 developer preview 6, which is required for compatibility with developer devices running iOS 5 beta 6.
- Second beta of iWork for iOS with iCloud support.
- Apple TV software beta 5.
To get your hands on the new Beta 6 version, you need to have an Apple Developers Account which you can get from the Apple website for $99 a year.
