WHAT'S New in IOS 5 beta7

The following issues relate to using the 5.0 SDK to develop code.

When creating an iCloud account, you can use any Apple ID as long
as it is a full email address and not a MobileMe account. If you have a
MobileMe account, you can move that account to iCloud. You can find
more information on iCloud at: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Starting in iOS 5, video content in applications and websites are AirPlay-enabled by default.

iOS 5 supports AirPlay of video via AV Foundation.

API Validation

NEW: Starting in iOS 5.0 development tools beta 7, it is possible
to extract APIs used by an application and have them checked for
private APIs usage. This option will be offered at Validation time.

Apple TV

Apple TV Software beta enables users to mirror the contents of an
iPad 2 to an Apple TV (2nd generation) using AirPlay. This beta
software also enables Photo Stream on Apple TV so users can access
photos stored in iCloud. Apple TV Software beta is being provided to
test the latest AirPlay functionality with your iOS 5 apps and web
sites. If you wish to install Apple TV Software beta on your device, you
must first register your device UDID in the iOS Developer Program

Slideshow settings are not remembered for slideshow playback (always
plays back in Reflections theme). Screen savers settings are behaving

Binary Compatibility

On applications linked against the iOS 5.0 SDK, scroll view
content offsets will no longer be rounded to integral pixels during a
pinch gesture.


Birthday calendars are not currently available via the
website or in Windows. They will be available in a future release.

Core Image

Several filters have been added since beta 1. The current list now includes the following filters:

CIAdditionCompositing, CIAffineTransform, CICheckerboardGenerator,
CIColorBlendMode, CIColorBurnBlendMode, CIColorControls, CIColorCube,
CIColorDodgeBlendMode, CIColorInvert, CIColorMatrix, CIColorMonochrome,
CIConstantColorGenerator, CICrop, CIDarkenBlendMode,

CIStripesGenerator, CITemperatureAndTint, CIToneCurve, CIVibrance,
CIVignette, and CIWhitePointAdjust


iBooks 1.2.2 may fail to display some text or images in books. Please update to iBooks 1.3 in the App Store.

iCloud Backup

If you enable iCloud Backup, automatic backup with iTunes when
syncing will be disabled. We also suggest that you manually back up
your device with iTunes. Backups made with earlier versions of iOS 5
beta will soon become incompatible, and will no longer be available. It
is strongly advised you upgrade to this version of the iOS 5 beta in
order to continue backing up your devices.

iCloud Storage

Starting in iOS 5 beta 7, the requirements for specifying container
identifier strings in your application's entitlements have changed.
Each container identifier that does not include a wildcard character
must exactly match the bundle identifier of an application published
using the same team ID as your application. You are not required to
include an entitlement that matches your app’s own bundle identifier;
for example, a lite and pro version of your app could both specify the
pro app’s bundle identifier to share the same container. The
requirements for container identifiers that include wildcard characters
have not changed, but you may need to update existing wildcard
identifiers after changing any non-wildcard identifiers in your
application's entitlements to match the new rules.

NEW: In this beta of iOS 5.0 the number of times an app can
synchronize in quick succession with the servers has been reduced. If
you are debugging your app and want to see whether your synchronize
requests are being throttled, you can call the
-[NSUbiquitousKeyValueStore _printDebugDescription] method directly in
gdb. Please note that -[NSUbiquitousKeyValueStore
_printDebugDescription] is an SPI so you are strongly advised not to use
it in your app.

On KVS, the per-key limit has been raised to 64Kb (to match the
per-app limit); and the maximum number of keys has been raised to 256.

During the iOS 5 beta period, any documents stored on the servers
might be purged periodically before GM. Therefore, it is highly
recommended that you do not store any critical documents or information
on the servers.

Provisioning Profiles no longer need to be enabled for iCloud in
the iOS Provisioning Portal. All newly generated provisioning profiles
are now automatically enabled for iCloud. If you are using an Xcode
managed Team Provisioning Profile, click refresh in the Xcode Organizer
to obtain a new iCloud-enabled profile. To enable all other
provisioning profiles for iCloud, simply regenerate your profiles in
the iOS Provisioning Portal.

If your application is using the NSMetadataQuery class, you must
set a predicate, the predicate is now honored. But the predicate is an
NSPredicate-style predicate, not a Spotlight-style predicate an example
of this is that you must use LIKE instead of = for wild card matching.
The differences are defined in more detail at: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

In this beta, the setSortDescriptors: method of NSMetadataQuery is not supported.

To use iCloud prior to beta 5, you had to manually specify various
container identifiers (your application’s Display set) within an
Entitlements file for both of your Mac OS X and iOS projects.

Starting in beta 5, to enable iCloud storage within your apps,
simply click the “Enable Entitlements” checkbox in the Summary pane of
your project. Xcode will create a custom entitlements file for your
project that automatically includes your Team ID. You can add additional
iCloud Container values as required by your application. (Note that
you must regenerate your existing provisioning profiles, either with
Xcode or in the iOS Provisioning Portal, to use iCloud storage.)

If you specify a custom identifier string for your iCloud Key-Value
Store or iCloud Container entitlement values, you no longer need to
prepend your Team ID to the beginning of the string. Xcode will prepend
your Team ID to these entries automatically

The container identifier string you pass to the
URLForUbiquityContainerIdentifier: method of NSFileManager MUST include
the team ID at the beginning of the string. As a convenience, if you
pass nil, Foundation uses the first document container ID specified in
your app’s entitlements.

There are issues using the Cloud Storage document API in conjunction with protected data which can lead to data corruption.

In this beta, file presenters (objects that adopt the
NSFilePresenter protocol) do not receive some of the messages that
they're supposed to receive, especially:



You can workaround this by implementing the
relinquishPresentedItemToWriter: method and checking to see if the
writer actually wrote when your file presenter reacquires.

File presenters do receive presentedItemDidChange: messages in this beta.

While reporting a bug related to the iCloud storage interfaces,
please include the logs collected during your debugging session. To
generate these logs, you must install a special debug profile on your

The debug profile can be obtained from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
This profile enables the generation of debug logs that are needed to
diagnose any problems using iCloud storage. The instructions to collect
the logs are:

Install the profile. (The easiest way to do this is to mail it to yourself and open the attachment on their device.)

Reproduce the bug.

Sync with iTunes to pull the logs off your device.

Attach the logs to your bug report. You can find the logs in

These logs can grow large very quickly, so you should remove the
profile after you have reproduced the problem and pulled the logs for
the bug report.

File names are case-insensitive in OS X but case-sensitive in iOS.
This can lead to problems when syncing files between the two. You
should take steps on iOS to avoid creating files whose names differ
only by case.

Find My iPhone

After OTA update Find My iPhone does not work. To make it
functional you can toggle the the Find My iPhone from OFF to ON in


Auto-matching with the Turn-based view controller does not work.
Invites or the direct auto-match API can be used as a workaround.

Match data for turn based matches is currently limited to 4 KB of data.

Events will be passed to the delegate whenever a turn is made on a
match, instead of just when it becomes the local player's turn.


iMessage beta 1 will be unable to communicate with iMessage users on beta 2 or later.

FIXED:Setup Assistant does not provide AppleID password as an input for the FaceTime in iMessage.

interface Builder

When editing the value of a constraint in the inspector, the
constraint remains selected, and the outline view continues to show the
constraint as selected.

In XCode 4.2 when copying views (either a single view or multiple
views), both the user defined constraints directly on the selected view
and the user defined constraints between the views being copied are
copied to the pasteboard.

Changing the segment style of an NSSegmentedControl object to
"Automatic" might crash in documents using Cocoa Auto Layout. To
workaround the issue use an explicit segment style such as Round or
Textured, and at runtime, change the segment style to automatic using
the setSegmentStyle: method.


NEW: When trying to restore an iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 3rd
generation device running Beta 6 to Beta 7 using iTunes, you will have
to set the device into DFU or you can OTA update to Beta 7. To enter
DFU mode you will have to:

Connect the device to USB on your Mac.

Turn the device off.

Launch iTunes on your Mac.

Hold down the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds.

Continue holding the Home button but let go of the Power button.

Hold Home button for 13 seconds or until the device shows up in iTunes.

The version of iTunes that comes with beta 7 cannot sync devices
that have the beta 6 software installed. To avoid this problem, do the

Sync any devices that have beta 6 installed to the version of iTunes that came with beta 6.

Upgrade iTunes to the version that comes with beta 7.

Connect the device and install the beta 7 software. (Understand
that you might see a failure to sync error when you first connect the

After installing the beta 7 software, restore from your the backup you made in step 1.


When changing the host name of an email account in settings, blank
messages may be seen in the unified inbox. As a workaround, delete and
re-add the account instead of changing its host name.

Music Player

When deleting a song or video from Music/Videos on the device it crashes the app.


FIXED: After the lighting stage, whether lighting is enabled or
not, the resulting color values are not clamped in GLKit/GLKEffects
with either GLKLightingTypePerVertex or GLKLightingTypePerPixel set on
the effect. As a result it is not uncommon to see differences in
lighting between the two, especially when multiple lights are enabled.
This differs from OpenGLES 1.1 which clamps color values after the
lighting stage regardless of whether or not lighting is enabled.

OTA Software Update

Users who installed iOS 5 beta 6 over the air from iOS 5 beta 3
must first erase all content and settings by choosing Settings >
General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings in order to
install iOS 5 beta 7 over the air. This only impacts users who did not
update to iOS 5 beta 4.

If you are doing an OTA software update, you will need to re-sync your photos with iTunes."

There may be some cases where purchases from the App Store or iTunes
Store appear to be stalled because the device is downloading something
else in the background. A workaround is to disconnect the device from
power (unplug the device).

If you have a passcode set, it must be removed before updating to seed
7 from previous seeds. It can be re-enabled after the update is
complete. Failure to do so may require iMessage to be re-enabled in


If reminders syncing is enabled for a Yahoo account and there is no
reminders collection on the server, it will continually get recreated
by the phone. Due to a Yahoo server bug, that collection will show up
as an event calendar.


In iOS 5.0 signing of certificates with MD5 signatures is not
supported. Please ensure that certificates use signature algorithms
based on SHA1 or SHA2.


Location services are not functional in iOS 4.3 simulator running on Mac OS 10.7 with Xcode 4.2.


Push and local notifications for apps appear in the new
Notification Center in iOS 5. Notification Center displays
notifications that are considered "unread.” In order to accommodate push
and local notifications that have no "unread" status, developers can
use their application badge count to trigger a clearing of notifications
from Notification Center. When an application clears its badge count
(by setting it to zero), iOS 5 will clear its notifications from
Notification Center.

UI Automation

There is a known issue when using the performTaskOnHost API in a
UI Automation script. If the task being performed with the API outputs
excessively (say, thousands of lines of text) to standard out or
standard error, the task may deadlock until the timeout is reached, at
which point it will throw a javascript exception.

The lock() and unlock() functions of UIATarget have been replaced with the lockForDuration(<seconds>) function.

Starting in iOS 5 beta 2, you can now trigger the execution of an
UI Automation script on an iOS device from the host terminal by using
the instruments tool. The command is:

instruments -w <device id> -t <template> <application>

When using the cli instruments for UI Automation you can now target
the default Automation Template and pass the script and results path
into the tool as environment variable options. For example:

instruments -w <device id> -t
<application> -e UIASCRIPT <script> -e UIARESULTSPATH
<results path>


In iOS 5.0 UIPickerView doesn't send its
pickerView:didSelectRow:inComponent: delegate message due to a
programatic selection.

Starting in iOS 5 beta 3, the exclusiveTouch property of UIControl has returned to its original default value of NO.

Returning nil from the tableView:viewForHeaderInSection: method (or
its footer equivalent) is no longer sufficient to hide a header. You
must override tableView:heightForHeaderInSection: and return 0.0 to hide
a header.

In the iOS 5 beta, the UITableView class has two methods to move one
cell from one row to another with defined parameters. These APIs are:



Using the UIWebView class in Interface Builder, setting transparent
background color is possible in iOS 5. Developers compiling against
the new SDK can check their XIB for the UIWebView transparent setting.

In the iOS 5 beta, the UINavigationBar, UIToolbar, and UITabBar
implementations have changed so that the drawRect: method is not called
on instances of these classes unless it is implemented in a subclass.
Apps that have re-implemented drawRect: in a category on any of these
classes will find that the drawRect: method isn't called. UIKit does
link-checking to keep the method from being called in apps linked before
iOS 5 but does not support this design on iOS 5 or later. Apps can

Use the customization API for bars that in iOS 5 and later, which is the preferred way.

Subclass UINavigationBar (or the other bar classes) and override drawRect: in the subclass.

The indexPathForRow:inSection:, section, and row methods of
NSIndexPath now use NSInteger instead of NSUInteger, so that these types
match with methods defined on UITableView.

We have changed the behavior of
scrollToRowAtIndexPath:atScrollPosition:animated: such that
UITableViewScrollPositionTop and UITableViewScrollPositionBottom now
adjust for the top and bottom portions of the contentInset property.

In releases prior to iOS 5.0, the UIPopoverController class would
unconditionally set the autoresizing masks of view controllers which
were the content view controller of the popover controller. It would
also unconditionally set the autoresizing masks of the views of view
controllers pushed on to a UINavigationController object which was the
content view controller of the popover controller.

In iOS 5.0, the UIPopoverController class will no longer do this
for applications linked on iOS 5.0 or later. Developers should ensure
that the autoresizing masks of views are set properly to allow for
arbitrary resizing within any container, not just popovers. A mask of
(UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleHeight)
would not be unreasonable.

The completion handler for
saveToURL:forSaveOperation:completionHandler: is now being called
outside of the coordinated write block, where it used to be called

The autosaveWithCompletionHandler: method will now only be called for
period-based saves and it is safe to return without saving. Documents
must save, though, if the saveToURL:forSaveOperation:completionHandler:
method is invoked.

Safari and WebKit

In iOS 5, a new inherited CSS property,
-webkit-overflow-scrolling, is available. The value touch allows the web
developer to opt in to native-style scrolling in an overflow:scroll
element. The default value for this property is auto, which allows
single-finger scrolling without momentum.

The WebKit framework has picked up a newer WebKit engine, which
closely matches Safari 5.1. Some areas to be aware of with the new
WebKit framework on iOS:

There is a new HTML5-compliant parser.

Text layout width may change slightly because word-rounding behavior now has floating-point-based precision.

There is improved validation of the <input type=number>
form field, which includes removing leading zeros and number formatting.

Touch events are now supported on input fields.

window.onerror is now supported.

There is a new user agent that does not have locale information in the User Agent string.

URLs are now canonicalized by making the scheme all lowercase.
If a fake URL is used to pass information from a UIWebView back to
native code, make sure that the scheme is always lowercase, or that the
native code compares the scheme in a case-insensitive manner.

Wi-Fi Syncing

In iOS 5 beta 4 and later, wireless syncing is now available on
Windows as well as the Mac. (This support requires OS X 10.6.8 or
Lion.) You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you
connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you
perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.

Wireless syncing is triggered automatically when the device is
connected to power and on the same network as the paired computer. Or,
you can manually trigger a sync from iTunes or from Settings >
General > iTunes Sync (same network as paired computer required).

If you find issues with apps, media and/or photos synced to
your device, you can reset then resync. From Settings > General >
Reset, choose Erase all Content and Settings. Then reconnect to iTunes
and sync again.


NEW: Starting with Xcode 4.2 in iOS 5.0 beta 7, support to run and
debug applications in the iOS 4.3 Simulator and on devices with iOS
versions older than 4.2 is made optional and installed on demand. This
support is no longer shipped as part of the core tools packaging, and
made available for download and installation through the "Downloads"
pane of the Xcode Preferences panel. A valid iOS developer ADC account
is required to obtain this content.

To obtain the iOS 4.3 Simulator, select the "More Simulators…" item
from the Run Destinations popup in the main toolbar. This will present
the Downloads pane of the Preferences with UI to initiate the
installation of the simulator.

To obtain iOS device support for pre-iOS 4.2 devices, connect a
device and activate it for development in the Organizer. Xcode will
provide a prompt to initiate the download of the device support

If the Xcode 4.2 in iOS 5.0 beta 7 is installed over a previous
Xcode 4.2 beta or Xcode 4.1, the iOS 4.3 Simulator and device support
from the previous install will already be present, and the additional
components will display as "Installed" in the Downloads pane of the
Xcode Preferences.

The installation packages for the downloaded components will be
stored in ~Library/Developer/Xcode. When a new version of Xcode (beta or
GM) will be installed, subsequent requests to install these components
will use the local packages without requiring a new download.

In some cases, Xcode 4.2 Organizer does not display a device that
is in restore mode. As a workaround you can use iTunes to restore.

In iOS 5 beta 5, iOS Simulator is not compatible with previous
releases of the iCloud Developer Seed for OS X. It is highly recommended
that you update to the latest iCloud Developer Seed to ensure

iOS 5.0 SDK supports both iOS 4.3 and iOS 5.0 simulators.
