Apple Begins Seeding of iOS 5.1 Beta, Xcode 4.3 to Developers


Apple has seeded developers with the first version of iOS 5.1 Beta and Xcode 4.3.
iOS SDK 5.1 provides support for developing iOS applications and includes the complete set of Xcode tools, compilers, and frameworks for creating applications for iOS and Mac OS X. These tools include the Xcode IDE and the Instruments analysis tool among many others.

With this software you can develop applications that run on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 5.1. You can also test your applications using the included iOS Simulator, which supports iOS 5.1. There are two Xcode iOS SDK 5.1 images, one for installing on a Macintosh computer running Mac OS X 10.6.7 (Snow Leopard) or later, the other for installing on a Macintosh computer running Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).
BGR provides some release notes which presently list some known issues but are otherwise unrevealing.

If this is your comment, then you're exactly the kind of person who SHOULDN'T be downloading a beta.

The battery drain on the 4S is caused by a bad video driver which causes the GPU to run when idle and not needed. I hope this addressed it.

I installed it last night then charged it to 100%. I left it off the charger overnight. Normally it uses 5-10% overnight.

My stats this morning:

98%
Usage: 11 min
Standby: 7 hrs 36 minutes


I envy the amount of minutes that you spent sleeping :(

Why? Steve is gone. Time for normalcy.


Does a Newsstand icon really bother you that much?

Are you kidding? Did you see the hissy fits people threw over the Game Center application and how it ruined the rest of their lives. We'll not hear the end of this one for some time to come.

Apparently Siri will now administer the Voight-Kampff test when a new voice is detected.
