iOS 5 Beta 5 Released
Developers have been given the gift of Beta 5 of Apple's much anticipated iOS 5. The update includes various bug fixes and a Hearing Aid Mode designed to improve compatibility between iOS devices and hearing aids. It also includes a new speech recognition feature believed to be called Apple "Assistant," which will combine on-device and cloud processing to recognize natural-speech instructions and be able to use various data sources to present the best set of results. This function has not been activated in the software yet as it is believed that Apple has not yet reached an agreement with Nuance. Developers can download iOS 5 beta from the Apple Dev Center.
