A word of caution to those of you who will be downloading and installing the new iOS 5.1 beta that Apple seeded earlier today.

According to jailbreak hacker iH8Sn0w, iOS 5.1 beta will expire on January 14th, 2012 at 8PM EST. This means that you have to update to a newer beta version or the official firmware before that time, or else your device will be unusable until you restore…

That’s not a big deal in itself, but it might come as a surprise if you don’t expect it. Trust me, I’ve been there!

  • And as of now, no Release Notes. Does it really deserve the title of iOS 5.1? Or should it be labeled iOS 5.0.2? I’m actually expecting some new material to be released. Hopefully my expectations are met.

    • There are release notes. I just updated our iOS 5.1 beta post about it. Check it out 🙂

  • Ios 5.0.2 Apple ignores such rumors. And for the ios 5.1. We hope that this beta version to overcome the shortcomings of the 5.0.1
