Apple released iOS 5 Beta 3 earlier today, and as usual when a new build is available, we are tracking down every cool new feature. I just found out about this new one while playing around the Settings app for my iPad.

If you go to Settings > General > Sounds and select “Text Tone,” for example, you will be offered many more tones to choose from. I’m not 100% sure how many of these tones are new. but it seems to me that iOS 5 Beta 3 gives us access to 20 more tones…

Among these tones, there are a few we had already heard before but we couldn’t manually attribute. We can now use all these tones as a ringtone, text tone, new mail tone, sent mail tone, sent tweet, calendar alert, and reminder alert.

Anticipate
Bloom
Calypso
Choo Choo
Descent
Ding (we already knew this one)
Fanfare
Ladder
Minuet
News Flash
Noir
Sherwood Forest (my favorite)
Spell
Suspense
Swoosh (we already knew this one)
Telegraph
Tiptoes
Tweet (this one was available with beta 1)
Typewriters
Update
Update: So apparently these aren’t new, even though I can’t seem to find track of them on my other iDevices. At any rate, what’s new is that you can assign them to specific alerts.

How do you like these?
