Apple releases iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 to developers

Apple on Friday released iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 to developers. The new software is available for Apple’s iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2 and third and fourth-generation iPod touch devices. The first beta of iOS 5.0.1 was released just two days ago, and it offered an update for battery life issues affecting many iPhone 4S owners, among other new features. The iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 update just hit Apple’s developer site and some users are reporting difficulties while trying to downloading the update. Users report no problems when trying to update their devices over the air, however.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in
