    This may be a very stupid question, and if it is, I apologize in advance.

    Are iOS5 beta versions available for non-developers? I am interested in trying it out, just to play with it, but I am not a developer. Is it accessible for me? Thanks!

    You can shell out $99 for the privilege... create a developer account and get access to it... but it's overkill IMHO... why pay $99 to get today what will be free in the near future? If you aren't a developer, the only answer is "status/ego", again IMHO.

    It's been "out" since Friday... the link was in the developer forums. It was placed on the iCloud downloads page (where the previous betas were) sometime Saturday morning. So if you're a developer, you've had access to it since Friday afternoon. If you're not a developer, you don't need it/should not have it anyway. (And don't shoot me for saying so - I didn't write the terms of service for the betas, Apple did.)
