Apple just released iOS 5.0.1 beta to developers. The build number of 5.0.1 is 9A402.

http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2011/11/501beta.jpg


iOS 5.0.1 beta contains improvements and other bug fixes including:
- Fixes bugs affecting battery life
- Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
- Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
- Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation
- Contains security improvements

iOS 5.0.1 beta introduces a new way for developers to specify files that should remain on device, even in low storage situations.The last note about files addresses an iOS 5.0 issue (http://www.marco.org/2011/10/13/ios5-caches-cleaning) raised by Marco Arment.There's no longer anywhere to store files that don't need to be backed up (or can't be, by the new policy) but shouldn't be randomly deleted.The iOS 5.0 policy introduced issues for apps that wished to store offline data. Apple appears to have addressed this issue in 5.0.1.

No, they did OTA updates before from Beta 4 to Beta 5 to Beta 6 or something like that, too bad I can't do OTA with this beta update.

EDIT: Note to developers, you can apply the 5.0.1 beta update by doing a "Option+Update" in iTunes, no need to do a full restore.

A few of the betas used OTA updates. They wouldn't use the beta, as they wouldn't know what devices to make it available to. The final version will most definitely be OTA.

Indeed. It's all good though, I shall look forward to this but won't be installing Beta - I've just got Siri working beautifully for me so shan't be doing a restore to test ;-)

YES!!! I thought I was going to have to jailbreak again for that option. This makes me super happy! I can finally stop using my cursed home button. :D Now all that needs to happen is delta app updates in the background and a fix to the new Music app (which sucks) and I'll be completely happy with iOS 5. :)

Not adding, bringing it back. Multitouch gestures worked fine on the iPad 1 since iOS 4.3, you just needed (the free) Xcode to enable it with a simple checkbox. Loosing them with iOS 5 made me for the first time consider jailbreaking my iPad.

Now, can they PLEASE fix the Safari crashing issue on the iPad 1?! That one's the most infuriating, as I actually added multitasking gestures using a modified version of redsn0w that doesn't apply a jailbreak.

Hmmm, unfortunately there is no mention of photos (camera roll) and camera. From reviewing the Apple Forums, my issue with these seem to be pretty common. Like others, these two built-in apps worked fine initially, then gradually became worse - like as if the problem grew like cancer.

The issue:

Some photos / videos are displayed as black or grey boxes (initially, these would be fine upon import into iPhoto - now are not visible by iPhoto at all)
Camera Roll cannot be viewed - app crashes


Since yesterday, Airplay decided not to work. I haven't confirmed whether this is an issue unique to my device or shared with others.

I am using an iPhone 4 and a 'restore' didn't do anything except disorganize my apps layout and folders. In fact, it didn't put my apps back on the initial try.

I agree with the attached quote, but I'm finding the issue surrounding syncing to both my iPhone 4S and my wife's 3GS (on separate computers) profoundly frustrating.

Connect > iTunes > Sync > several steps to sync > last step stalls, and stalls, and stalls. Never-ending message of "waiting for changes to be applied" or such. Surely this is a major inconvenience worth both addressing and mentioning in a release note.

Funny thing though, I haven't experienced any battery issues whatsoever on the 4S - lasts for a while with heavy use and for a long time when sitting idly by. Strange. :confused:

You don't want to do that. The hack he speaks of is what causes the Safari crashes he wants fixed. I applied the same tweak to my iPad, and while I got the gestures, Safari (and a few other apps) would crash immediately on launch. The problem was resolved with a restore to an un-hacked iOS.

Just wait for the official update. You can make it a few more weeks.

I was on the phone the other day with AppleCare about Safari crashing on the iPad 1 but not the iPad 2. When I first reported it Apple thought it was a hardware issue with my iPad 1. Apple ended replacing my iPad with another one. I was able to show Apple that the problem happened on the second one they gave me plus the AppleCare rep was able to reproduce it. The rep sent it up to engineering. I hope the fix gets in iOS 5.0.1.

Of course, instead of addressing the battery issue in Android, Google leaves it up to someone else to create an app to handle it. Or better yet, Android phone makers offer an extended battery to make up for the short coming in Android. Sounds like great solutions to me :rolleyes:

And yet another example of Apple bringing new stuff to older devices, rather than leaving the missing feature as one more incentive to upgrade.

And like all the other times Apple does so, it will be instantly forgotten because they don’t ALWAYS do so. And the times they don’t, people will gnash their teeth over Apple’s supposed “pattern” of always omitting features out of pure greed :p As though any company ever brings ALL the new stuff to previous systems.

Many people had this problem including myself, I found a solution in the developer forums. You have to hold option (shift on windows) and click "Update" not "Restore", otherwise it will not activate. Not sure why this is happening as usually it is the exact opposite.

Regardless, in the future try seeing if there is any information on your problems on the actual developer forums. That way you have less of a chance of breaking your NDA and since there is generally much more information there then anywhere else.

Hope this helps! :)

Read my post a few posts up. But to sum it up, if you are on 5.0.1 and stuck then put your device in DFU mode restore it to 5.0 then "Update" don't "Restore" to 5.0.1, if you aren't stuck on 5.0.1 and are still on 5.0 then just ignore the DFU mode step. This worked for me and many others according to the dev forums :)

You're not seeing an OTA update on your iPod Touch because there is no update publicly available. The update is available through the iOS developer portal, which is only available to registered (paid) developers. You will not be able to install or activate 5.0.1 until it is publicly available for everyone.

Good to hear. My iPhone 4S still lasts me through the day, but there is a noticeable drop in battery life from the 4. I hope this is a proper fix and not a "we're making the signal bars taller" kind of fix.

Looking forward to multitasking gestures on the original iPad, although I still won't believe they are coming until I have them in my hand. After all, they have appeared in previous dev builds but never made the cut before.

Just installed iOS 5.0.1, been running 5mins with mail switched on (was off on 5.0) and Bluetooth and a radio app. So far still on 100%, I would of dropped down to about 95-97% by now on 5.0. I think Apple has fixed the battery issue, atleast for me.

Edit. Dropped to 99% at 11mins in. I can live with that

Edit2. Just restarted my phone after plugging my USB cable in, rebooted back up and I lost 2% battery life. Down to 97%. Still charging now

I doubt they're going to put the feature in the release notes for an update due within weeks then remove the feature.

My guess is the gestures were left out of the iPad 1 builds by accident. Doesn't make sense that they were in the betas then disappeared in the final build then come back a few weeks later. I doubt they were removed because of bugs... Apple *should* know how to code gestures by now.

Read my post a few posts up. But to sum it up, if you are on 5.0.1 and stuck then put your device in DFU mode restore it to 5.0 then "Update" don't "Restore" to 5.0.1, if you aren't stuck on 5.0.1 and are still on 5.0 then just ignore the DFU mode step. This worked for me and many others according to the dev forums :)

Thanks - worked for me too - now just have to wait the 2-3 hours to restore, from icloud, (i forgot to do an itunes backup before updating) over the hotels cr@ppy wifi ....

As per Apples FAQ

Single photo deleting is not an option. Yet.
For me it's not a big deal but I can see where one wouldn't want every single photo taken to be in the stream.

How do I delete photos from my Photo Stream in iCloud?

Individual photos cannot be deleted from your Photo Stream. You can, however, delete all the photos in your Photo Stream by clicking the Reset Photo Stream button in your account at icloud.com. The Reset Photo Stream button will instantly delete all Photo Stream photos stored in iCloud, but it will not remove any Photo Stream photos that have already been pushed to your devices.

Affirmative, but you can Option-Update to it using iTunes. No full restore needed, which is a relief. No new iTunes or Xcode to download either.

Thanks!!

Oh Man! if Apple enables Multitasking Gestures for iPad 1 I'll be so happy! :D

I was using gestures since iOS 4 by enabling these with xCode, and I've missed it since upgrading to iOS 5.

Regarding battery life issues, I have experimented these with Auto-Time Sync enabled; the battery could last as usual or suddenly drain considerably.
Also, I would recommend disabling WiFi when on the road, so the iPad doesn't keep trying to discover and connect to every WiFi device it finds it as you move around.

Good news indeed...!

No issues updating here (did option+Update). Very happy to have the multitasking gestures on my original iPad. For whatever reason, I'd never enabled them via Xcode prior to iOS 5, so I didn't know exactly what I was missing, but I'm certainly glad they're here!

Yes you do.

Interestingly, so long as you do the shift+update method, you don't need your UDID registered. At least this was the case with my 4S. I haven't registered my UDID yet (forgot), but using the update method worked just fine to put 5.0.1 on my iPhone. You probably wouldn't want to reset settings or anything after that until you registered your UDID, though.

Not adding, bringing it back. Multitouch gestures worked fine on the iPad 1 since iOS 4.3, you just needed (the free) Xcode to enable it with a simple checkbox. Loosing them with iOS 5 made me for the first time consider jailbreaking my iPad.

For the vast majority of the millions of people using the original iPad, Apple are adding multi-touch gestures. I know 6 people with iPad 1s and none of them enabled gestures.

I'm definitely happy that they're adding multitasking gestures back to the iPad 1. No need for a jailbreak now.

Now, can they PLEASE fix the Safari crashing issue on the iPad 1?! That one's the most infuriating, as I actually added multitasking gestures using a modified version of redsn0w that doesn't apply a jailbreak.

Yes, that issue is really annoying, because it doesn't affect only Safari, but basically any app that is viewing web using Webkit. For me it also regularly occurs in FlipBoard and 1Pasword apps.

If you are not a developer, but have the seed, you need to get the source that gave it to you to add you to the developer portal

There will be no real noticeable battery life improvements with this, or any future release. Trust me.

Installed and battery life is much much better. Have everything turned on as well.

Can anybody check and see if, out of compassion, Apple has finally activated the use of the USB Camera Connection Kit in the iPhone in 5.0.1?

It doesn't make any sense to release GarageBand for the iPhone/iPod and still block the use of decent USB sound cards and microphones through the Camera Connection Kit as we do in the iPad.

Thanks!

It's a known bug. Restore your phone in DFU. Once everything is done, go to your iTunes on your computer, hold the option key and press check for update. It will open up a window for you to browse for the beta on your computer.

Same iOS 5 iPad music app? Not interested.

Whoever downvoted this one either has never used the music app on iPad or is an idiot. BY FAR the worst part of iOS5, many bugs in it and it's very disappointing to see no mention of music issues in the release notes.

Anyone running the beta on iPad, any improvements/fixes to the music app?

Known issues with 5.0 on iPad (note that the app is completely different than the iPhone version):
1) Lyrics completely missing
2) Playback speed for audiobooks and podcasts gone, many users stuck with half speed playback
3) Playlists only displayed as cover art stacks, no option to change back to text lists
4) No 30 second rewind button in audiobooks and podcasts
5) No more graphical display of which podcasts have been listened to
6) No way to get new episodes of podcasts in the music player (have to switch apps to the iTunes app and search for the podcast there)
7) Tiny displays for many of the fields - podcast info in particular barely shows any of it and it doesn't scroll
8) No dates shown for podcasts any more
9) In album view of the list of songs, it switches away from that view to the album cover at the end of every song
10) No sort options in most listings
11) Podcasts and audio books - no longer continues on to the next podcast or section of the book, have to keep manually starting the next one.
12) Chapter support for audiobooks removed
13) Graphics of things like random and repeat are just slight variations on shades of grey, very difficult to tell whether it's active or not
14) Music videos no longer with music, also no way to have them in playlists

I'm sure there are many more, that's just off the top of my head. In general the interface is very poorly laid out with tons of wasted space that could show more text info or have more controls more easily accessible. Honestly they should just scrap the new version and go back to the previous iPad music player and make fixes from there, still needs improvement (my main gripes with the old one were having to dig through multiple windows to rate songs instead of having the feature always available, and cumbersome way of putting songs into playlists) but much less to fix.

Here's one of many threads about the problems.

No lyrics, no audiobook chapters, not showing images embedded in audiobooks, it's horrible. I wonder if this new iTunes is a work in progress, and that Apple will continue to add features to it. Otherwise, the "cut the cord" phrase has no real meaning and I would go back to 4.3 if I could.

They should also address the echo issue with the use of the headphones! There are many people including myself with this issue! I'm already on my 3rd iPhone 4S and all of the replacements I got had this issue including the current one I have now....

I hope all the audio problems of music App of iOS5 in iPhone 4 are also resolved.

In my case all music is distorted, can't listen to music anymore, no matter if I apply "volume adjustment" in Itunes or not to my mp3/aac. Also, the volume is much lower in any situation: calls, music app, viber, all...

I regret having updated my phone and look forward for 5.0.1 to fix this asap. There is plenty of people having same problems:
