Apple Asking Developers to Submit iOS 5 Apps Ahead of October 12th Release


Today, Apple announced that iOS 5 would be released to the public on October 12th. In the meanwhile, they have seeded the final Golden Master copy to developers and are now asking developers to submit iOS 5 applications for inclusion in the App Store.

Apple has already been quietly approving many iOS 5 applications, but this gives developers a chance to test against the final shipping version of iOS 5. iOS 5 delivers over 200 new features to customers and will be available for a free download on October 12th. iOS 5 is compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad, and the 3rd and 4th generation iPod touches.

I was very confused last week, because they have been accepting our apps tested against beta 7 for two weeks. Just received the notice to please resubmit under the GM

I can't wait for iCloud enabled apps. I also heard that games saves/states can now be pushed across devices.

Anyone know if 3rd party apps will have access to the Photostream? I'd love auto uploading from Hipstamatic/Camera+ etc.

Thanks in advance.

That'll be welcome! Will it work the same way with apps that aren't universal?
