    Am I the only one not able to find the release notes for this?

    Nevermind. I am blind. They are at the top.

    I think they've said OTA wasn't turned on in beta 1.

    just a word of warning to everyone. Before you install iTunes beta 2 back up your phone as iTunes will now not let me sync my iPhone with iOS 5 beta 1. I am going to see if iTunes will let me update rather than just restore. I will keep you posted

    not surprised. Wifi sync wasn't enabled so thought OTA wouldn't be either.

    Plus could be possible that the Beta's will have to be clean installed each time.

    As noted by ItsAllTech, Apple has released the first followup beta release to iOS developers. iOS 5 Build 9A5248d was just released this evening. The first changes noted include:

    - Wireless syncing has been enabled for Mac OS X computers
    - A new iTunes beta has been released as well

    We'll post updates as we hear more.

    Someone will no doubt say you are, despite every tech site from MacRumors to Engadget to TUAW to Macworld detailing the changes of every Beta since iOS began ... I wouldn't worry too much.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep that in mind.

    But this was quite an obvious thing so I thought Apple wouldn't mind me posting it. :)

    EDIT: MacRumors itself states that already in the headline. :)

    So, other than the changes, can anyone confirm performance wise how it compares to Beta 1. Are Apple ramping up the quality of the UI (fluidity, etc) or is it only features being added one at a time for now on top of the same UI build.

    lol it's onyl been up for 20 mins, performance questions need a bit more than that :p beta 1 took a little while to stablise performance wise, so guessin this would be the same.

    pretty much all features were in beta 1, just not wifi sync and OTA updates, unless i missed something
