Anybody downloaded it?
Nope, no one has downloaded Beta 3.
I installed iOS 5 Beta 3. The new awesome feature that Apple decided to (finally) implement seems to be the the fact, that one can no longer sync music to the iOS device. Finally the agony of "Oh, ****, that song is back on my Mac" is over!
Didn't quite understood what you meant...
Can't sync my music/photos no longer to my iPhone...
Mine syncs music just fine.
Also, Genius playlists are working again.
You're doing something wrong. Don't blame Apple. Read the release notes and instructions posted on the developer website. Everything syncs perfectly on both my iPhone and iPad running beta 3.
Who says I was blaming Apple? This is beta, ofc it will have bugs. Am I not allowed to ask for help about beta software or be sarcastic about it?
Since you're a developer submit a bug report through the developers channel to Apple. Else wait till beta 4 comes out.
I did do that. I just did not realize that I was not allowed to ask people for help. -.-
Unless you need that particular feature for your app development, else just ignore it and wait.
Sure you can. People don't take a snarky comment as asking for help.
"Hey I can't seem to synch my music. Anyone else run into this?" That is more of a request for help.
I really hope you didn't file a bug report because you were unable to sync music. There is absolutely nothing wrong with music syncing. More likely than not, you are doing something incorrectly. If you followed the instructions given in the iOS 5.0 beta developer website then you should have absolutely zero problems syncing anything to your iDevice.
I'm not being a jerk attacking you - I'm just saying that it's likely your fault that things aren't working.
Can we just drop it?
The one thing that drives me up the wall is not being able to use an FM transmitter. I mean, it charges just fine, but the audio no longer goes through my car's (2008 Lexus RX350) speaker system. Bluetooth, however, works flawlessly. It's really my fault. Why in the world did I buy such an expensive vehicle that lacked a simple AUX input? I've been kicking myself in the ass a couple of times for that one, and now in iOS 5 Beta 3, I'm kicking myself again. I get the infamous "This device is not supported by iPhone" message whenever I try to play anything from the iTunes Music app. I can't wait for the next beta.
Oh, and I WILL be filing a bug report.
Actually beta testing isn't just about following instructions to the letter. It is also trying things that a normal user might try that might be "unexpected" and if they cause an issue that should be reported. Even if it is his fault, whatever he did to cause the music not to sync might be something a normal user would try as well. So unless specificially mentioned as a "known issue" in the release notes, it should be reported.
Please don't lecture me about beta testing. There is a specific upgrade process for beta testers to follow that real-world users will never experience. Most likely this poster did not follow the instructions correctly resulting in his music sync issues.
Do I need to turn the phone on for it to work? or will it turn itself on automagically when it senses my need to use it?
Mine makes popcorn for me when it sees I am hungry.
You have no clue if it is because of the uprgade procedures of not so it IS right for him to report the issue.
if someone would like to have the links i have them.You can send me a PM because macrumors won't let me publish it
Another thread with beta questions and lots of arguments and trolling.
Is it possible to install beta 3 without having beta 1 or 2? (I'm running 4.3.3 now)
Yes. Just download the beta 3 ipsw and when you restore, point to that.
Great. Thank you.
