The Cupertino-based company has just revealed the fifth beta version for its incoming firmware and namely the iOS 7.1 beta 5, holding the build number 5B103i. As expected, the update contains various bug fixes, general enhancements and certain performance improvements. However, as some of might want to know, the version still patches the iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak.
In what concerns the official release notes, the fifth beta version for the iOS 7.1 build brings the usual bug fixes for Safari, different sync issues for the iTunes and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as some “new natural-sounding Siri voices for English (Australia and United Kingdom), Japanese and Chinese (Mandarin and China).
As stated by the official change log” the iOS device initially uses a compact voice for Siri. After you have configured a Wi-Fi network and have the device connected to a power source, iOS will automatically download and install a higher quality version.” In this way, users who used an older Siri version will be able to enjoy its new features only by connecting their devices to a power source and a configured Wi-Fi network.
This fifth beta version available for users registered to Apple’s Developer Program can be installed using the same standard methods. For example, users can download iOS 7.1 beta 5 either by updating over-the-air right from their device or updating/restoring IPSW from iTunes. In the same time, download links for the fresh-released beta version can be found at the iOS DevCenter.
Already with five different beta versions released so far, we can easily assume that the final firmware version, also called the iOS 7.1 GM is not that far away. After all, if we take into consideration all those rumors, the official public release is expected to reach the public in March. All users who want to see how the iOS 7.1 beta 5 looks like, and you just want to prepare your apps for the next firmware, you are free to head over to the Apple’s Developer Center and download the beta version.
