Finally few days are left for the final release of iOS 5 with iCloud and iTunes 10.5. The last Beta build of iTunes which is Beta 7 was released on September 1st. It is now more than a month and no new build for Windows version was released of iTunes 10.5. Where as new updates were pushed to iTunes for MAC OS X with iTunes Match for developers.
MAC OS X got iTunes 10.5 Beta 9 where as Windows users got iTunes 10.5 Beta 7 which will expire really soon. Those who are using iTunes 10.5 Beta 7 on Windows have started to get a popup saying that, this copy of iTunes will expire soon.
In past when there was a new release of iTunes 10.5 Beta and you still run the old one, so it used to pop up a message saying that this build of iTunes will expire in 99 days or so. This time, iTunes Beta 7 never showed a timer and suddenly started to show a message that it will expire soon.
On October, 4th, Apple had its Media Event. After its Media Event it released iOS 5 GM for developers. The final release of iOS 5 GM is on 12th of October. Remember iOS 5 will be bringing about 200 new features for your iPhone/iPod/iPad/iPad 2. After two days to the release of iOS 5, we will be getting iPhone 4S. The date is 14th of October.
The pre-order for iPhone 4S had started on 7th and AT&T was out of stock in just 12-hours. It was expected that not much people will buy an iPhone 4S because it had no new design.
