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

ios5
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.

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

Thanks in advance.

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

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