iOS 5 Beta 2, iTunes 10.5 Beta 2 and Xcode 4.2 DP 2 released

Yesterday Apple released iTunes 10.5 beta 2, iOS 5 beta 2 and the Developer Preview 2 of Xcode 4.2.

So whats new?

iTunes 10.5 b2 finally gives you the possibility to sync over Wi-Fi. To enable it just enable the "Sync over Wi-Fi connections" in the Summary Tab of your iDevice with iOS 5 in iTunes. (i heard that is not available for Windows yet). Now you can sync every time both devices are on the some Wi-Fi. Quite fast, handy and was missed for a long time.

Beta 2 of iOS 5 gives us (as it seems) working Delta Updates. Also the iCloud settings got a new icon (i kinda liked the old one more) allows to restore data from the cloud backup (very very handy) brings back the Apple Wallpapers (they where missing in the first beta).

Noticed the redesigned on/off switches in iOS 5?

Now iCloud is at the first spot :3


Notification Center
I had no time yet to download the new Xcode build, guess i do it monday at work.

Pity my second gen iPod Touch can't run iOS 5. It has a lot of useful features..

So excited for iOS 5 to come out. I plan on enrolling myself into the iPhone Developer Program soon, so I can give iOS 5 a test run, as well as learn how to use Xcode to make apps.
