iOS 5 beta 3 gallery

There's bound to be something new in iOS 5 beta 3, a new icon, a new screen, a new setting... something that shows what Apple has been up to. Already the internet and our inboxes are filling up. A lot of it is, frankly, stuff we think we've seen before in previous betas, but some of it looks new to us as well.

  • New location services opt-in/opt-out splash screen on setup
  • Settings control for system-level location services (similar to what was previously available for App Store apps)
  • Settings control to toggle status bar icon for location services on/off
  • New iTunes Wi-Fi sync splash screen
  • New icon for Reminders
  • Some new stuff with tones (not sure about it yet)Text tones can be set from iTunes ringtones

We're going to collect it here, in this gallery. If you find anything we haven't come across yet, let us know.

Screenshots after the break.

You can also now use ring tones loaded via itunes as text tones and there is a new tweet tone.

Is there anymore stability?
I will play with it tonight after my day job :)

MILE says:

Curious to see whether they've changed notifications once again…!? :)

Aahz says:

Google maps now has a traffic button.

Ed says:

Is it more like android now? Hopefully!!!

Cult of iPhone says:

Are subscriptions working yet?

BeyondtheTech says:

Netflix and HBO GO are still important to me... Anyone know if it's working in Beta 3 or has too much changed in the iOS that the devs have to come up with an update?

Jim says:

NetFlix works, HBO GO crashes on start up.

Spanky says:

Chuckle... didn't take long for that NDA violation!

xthenkx says:

lol. who reads nda's... or looks at the big fat red or yellow bars on the apple developer sites that says CONFIDENTIAL.. hahaha

TomW093 says:

Good to see we can opt out on wifi sync if we so choose. And that list of themes is intriguing...

TSB3 says:

Where can I download iTunes beta for windows within the developer web page ?

xthenkx says:

Liam says:

@Yea: Looks like YOU ARE the douche retarded ...

Yea says:

And you're a douche too!!!

Rick Cain says:

I can now sync videos from iPhoto to my iPhone 4 photos app!

keith06t says:

I'm annoyed with these betas. Ever since beta 2 I haven't been able to sync with itunes. The wi-fi sync definitely has never worked, but the wired sync still doesn't work either. I hoped beta 3 would fix it, but no luck - my music and photos are never transferred and my iphone thinks it's still syncing even hours after itunes says it's done...

anjum says:

yes me too it has always come back with iTunes could not sync with the iPhone error and i was unable to sync my iPhone with beta2, but there has been overall improvement on stability and usability after beta 3 with iTunes 10.5 beta 3 installed

ipodfreek says:

will someone please tell apple to allow more than twelve friggin' icons in a folder?!

Wildwest says:

The limit of 12 only applies to friggin' icons. For regular icons, you can put 30,000 into each folder. ;-)

Dinorawrrs says:

I've been having an issue with taking photos in iOS 5 beta 3. When I take a photo, it's not posted to the very end of the album. Sometimes it's posted to the very beginning, sometimes it's somewhere in between the beginning and end of the album. Very inconvenient when I want to look at recent photos. Is anyone else having this issue, or should I restore?

Dinorawrrs says:

Just restored my iPhone again with beta 3. The photos I take are still randomly-placed in my album. Sometimes the beginning, sometimes the end, sometimes in random spots.

Andrew Yang says:

How need to connect your iPhone to the computer with a cable to enable wireless syncing...

UDID registering for those who've done the research but don't have $100. (All the usual beta caveats apply!)
