    I know that iTunes 10.5 beta is available for Windows. Is it possible to install the latest iOS beta from a Windows Machine?
    Will the betas update OTA or is it required to connect it to iTunes for each new beta update?
    Thanks.

    No Windows, no Mac! Only for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad

    Your replies were of no use whatsoever. I know that it cannot be installed to a Windows machine or a Mac but you need a full computer to install it onto the iOS device.
    Does anyone have some useful information?
    Thanks.

    If you have iTunes 10.5 you should be able to install iOS 5 using Windows. I'm almost certain updates to the beta will be done via downloading each update on a PC/Mac, not over the air.

    In defense of the first two posters, your headline for the thread "Install iOS 5 on Windows," is very unclear. It would be clearer to say, "Install iOS 5 using a Windows computer."

    In defense of OP, they were being needlessly pedantic.
