Apple released iOS 5 beta 2



ios5beta2

Apple has released iOS 5.0 beta 2 today. As usual it is for developers only, and for those who have activated UUID.

New firmware is available for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1, iPad 2 and Apple TV.

The most interesting new features one can find are: wireless syncing (works at least with iTunes 10.5 beta 2 on Mac OS 10.6.8 or Lion), new UI for notifications and silver iCloud logo in Setting. Apple also added functionality that let's you wirelessly restore your iDevice from an iCloud backup.

More signs of iPad 3 Retina Display in iOS 5



Some time ago several high resolution images were found in iPad iBooks app. The resolution was twice the size of the iPad screen 1024x768. This resulted in rumors that iPad 2 would have retina display and the same double pixel strategy used in the iPhone 4. While iPad 2 was released with the same screen resolution of 1024x768 new evidence of retina iPad was recently found.

iPhone developer @Frankrockz found iPad Retina Display sized graphics hidden in the Twitter frameworks of the iOS 5 beta firmware.

As I was going through the iOS SDK I came across some images in the new Twitter .framework. The resolution appears to be 1,536 x 2,048.

Resolution-Comparison

This means that iPad 3 might eventually get retina display. Well, we shall see.

How to downgrade from iOS 5 beta back to iOS 4.3.3



It is surprising how good the first beta version of iOS 5 is, but if for any reason you need to go back to iOS 4.3.3, we’ll show you how. There are at least two ways to do that:

Downgrade via XCode (Mac Only + dev license)

This is the easiest way to get back to a previous version of iOS. The bad part is that it can sometimes put you into a never ending DFU loop. You can typically use iRecovery to kick you out of it.

1. Download the iOS 4.3.3 here (it is better to use Firefox).

2. Open XCode and from the top select Window and then Organizer.
