iOS 5 Beta 8 Drops This Friday, Final Gold Master Version Next Week
iOS 5 beta 8 coming this Friday, GM on the 23rd, iPhone 5 launch early October as rumored?
We have received some information from a trusted source surrounding upcoming release of iOS 5 that could help pinpoint a more specific launch time frame for the iPhone 5. Starting off, we have been told that even though Apple seeded iTunes 10.5 beta 8 last week, iOS 5 beta 8 won’t be released until this Friday. After beta 8, Apple will introduce a Gold Master build on or around September 23rd as has been rumored. We believe that build is what will be loaded onto the already-assembled iPhone 5 hardware currently waiting for final software in China. Apple will then request that carrier partners give technical acceptance to the Gold Master by October 5th if there are no issues with it. What’s not clear is what Apple will do if the Gold Master doesn’t pass technical acceptance for some reason, though odds are it will still be loaded on the iPhone 5 at launch with a software update made available almost immediately following the device’s release.

If u are looking for a ransom, I can tell u I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills that I have acquired over the course of watching Chuck Norris in Walker, Texas Ranger, skills that make me a nightmare for people like u.

Well, seems like no iOS 5 beta 8, yet. May not even come out today! It just might check for an update and that's it.

No you don't. There are some issues pending that do affect the experience. My biggest peeve right now is where I will be doing things and then task switch over to text messages and there is a delay of about 7 seconds before it becomes responsive. It started in beta 6. There is still a camera/photo library cache bug. Battery life has declined since beta 5.blah blah blah witty signature blah blah blah

I heard something last night that this beta wouldn't becoming until Monday. I tweeted about it last night. I was hoping it was wrong. Well we have 1 hour left today or even tomorrow. Keeping fingers crossed for a release of it soon.
