iOS 5 Beta 6 Released

On August 12, 2011, in IOS, by admin

Ever wished a file in iOS 5 could predict when the system’s next build is coming out? According to an amazing discovery from developers, there’s actually a file within iOS 5 beta that predicts the release of iOS 5 Beta 6 for August 18th, after being successful at predicting Beta 5, which was released this past Saturday.

There are reasons to doubt this file’s accuracy, but the fact that it has managed to successfully predict releases before makes it seem way more credible than a “human source”. There is a chance however, that the final release date of iOS 5 might be pushed back for some reason, but if it does happen, then this file will simply be updated to reflect it.

Why would Apple not keep the release dates of future versions of its software a secret? Something which Apple has always kept a mystery until the very last minute, and its visible to pretty much anyone daring enough to dig deep into iOS 5 beta. No one has been able to answer that question, but it could be related to a prevention system to keep developers off old versions of iOS once they get surpassed, or perhaps the other way around: stop developers from installing unreleased versions of iOS? These are just guesses, therefore take them with a grain of salt, but I can’t think of any other reason why Apple would do such a thing unless it specifically has something to do with controlling access to its software.
