iOS 5 Beta 6 Seeded to Developers [Updated]
Apple today pushed out the sixth beta version of iOS 5 to developers, marking yet another step in the development process leading up to the public release of iOS 5 later this year. The release, which is labeled as Build 9A5302b, comes nearly two weeks after the surprise Saturday release of the fifth beta version earlier this month.
The over-the-air version of iOS 5 beta 6 for the iPhone checks in at 144 MB. (Thanks, Parker!)
In addition to iOS 5 beta 6, Apple has also released a new beta version of iTunes 10.5 and a new preview version of Xcode 4.2 to support the release.
Apple is expected to release iOS 5 for existing hardware around the time of the iPhone 5 launch, with rumors for the debut now coalescing around early October.
Update: Apple has also pushed out iWork for iOS beta 2 and a new "beta 5" of the Apple TV software.
Update 2: As noted by It's All Tech, Apple on the Mac side has pushed out a new developer seed of OS X 10.7.2 (Build 11C40), iCloud for OS X Lion beta 8, and a new build of Safari 5.1.1, all to be used for testing out iCloud.
Update 3: iLounge notes that Apple appears to have disabled Nike+ syncing through iTunes for iOS 5 users with the new beta, forcing them to use the wireless syncing option that debuted in iOS 4.1.

I thought that the 1st gen iPod couldn't go above iOS 3?
Request of the year. It is getting out of hand. Why do people expect developers to update their apps to support a closed beta. The beta is for them, not for you. You know who you are.
That Apple will release another beta before September 29th?
