    I've been wondering that myself. It's been what? 4 weeks since the lest update... Something has to have happend, as I don't remember Apple taking this long normally to seed the next update.

    Kinda hope it's another beta just because I would hope they add something more before GM. There really isn't that much x.1 update-worthy changes otherwise.

    True. Wouldn't mind something a little new to make it a bit more exciting.

    This has got to be the longest beta ever, makes you wonder what they are doing, better not just be some bug fixes.

    Probably right, although by then 5.1 will have been in beta for how long?

    This has nothing to do with the iPad 3. iPad 3 won't launch any sooner than April which is 2 months away. And it's almost been 5 weeks since the last beta. The did the same thing between the last beta for 5.0 before GM. It was almost 8 weeks.

    Maybe they're waiting for the DMCA jailbreaking decision to expire on the chance it won't be renewed. They would break the current jailbreak with 5.1, and further jailbreaking would be illegal again. This IS, primarily, a marketing-driven company more concerned with sales than what their customers want or need, so it wouldn't surprise me.

    I suspect they are adding in some new functionality that we did not see in earlier betas.

    You can bet they closed the jail break hole within a few days of the release.

    They would not be holding it up for the iPad 3 in March. No reason.

    There's not going to be any new features released in 5.1. The next beta is GM.

    Yes it can. Not saying it is but it can. Apple loves to release updates at the time at the of a product launches. I just looked in Dev portal and last beta was January 9th. The difference with 5.0 GM was they needed to hold that for the event. It was dated a couple of weeks before the release of the GM.

    You apparently have a poor grasp of the English language. I said anymore "new" features. That was introduced in a previous beta of 5.1.

    I do hope we see it soon, been having some problems with my 4S which I hope will be fixed with 5.1. Plus even a slightly better battery life fix would be nice.

    It's been just about a month since Beta 3, so hopefully somethings new soon. I can understand the long gap between Beta 2/Beta 3 (the holiday period inbetween).

    But still, if it's been a whole month and we get no new features then I'll be a little annoyed. IIRC the only new feature so far is the photo stream deletion.

    Let's hope it's soon. I feel like it's been ages since the last update. That was months ago! Bring on the latest and greatest!

    I think market-driven would apply to most successful Companies...... It's not illegal to make money. Got to go!! Have to check How my Apple shares are doing..

    So what everyone is say is that the option to delete photo stream is the ONLY new feature? Then what is the use of putting it out. Shoot I will be on 5.0.1 for a long time. Happy with it so far and not worth having photo stream delete just to lose a JB. Maybe after it is JB then my update.
