New in iOS 5 beta 8:

- hide/unhide native apps
- 4 new wallpapers
- copy/paste lyrics in Music app
- option to disable Spotlight Search; most likely in exchange for an upcoming new feature
- Newsstand 'Store' icon is live. Tapping on it takes you to iTunes Store then errors out
- Brightness is easily adjustable to 25%, 50% and 75% thanks to markings
- Photo Stream photos are finally deletable
- Select all / delete all option in Mail app
- Basic rules/filters in Mail app
- Send to groups in Mail app
- Set any song in Music app as Alarm Clock sound
- Block specific or non-Contacts or all incoming calls
- Password-protect any native app

Screenshots coming soon.

Got to love the way some developers stick to their NDAs! Of course I realize this was an official press release:rolleyes:
I'm so tired of reading this comment in every post about betas.

You are on a website called macrumors.com that deals with rumors, leaks and pre-release info. I honestly cannot even comprehend why people come here to post comments like this, it's ridiculous.

I would like to see iTunes get back to music only. If you think about it iTunes, which was for music now runs all the iPhone and iPad apps. It's too much clutter.

I agree. Now defunct iSync would've been a good vehicle for managing mobile devices.

I am convinced that the reason Apple is taking so much time and being so careful with next iPhone/iOS update is they don't want a repeat of MobileMe, even if it means delaying the launch!
