New iOS 5.1 beta seeded to developers

New iOS 5.1 beta seeded to developers
Last time we saw iOS 5.1 beta, it was pointing towards new Apple devices on the horizon and adding some new hooks into Siri for developers. iOS 5.1 beta 2 has been seeded to developers, and while it doesn't bring a lot new to the table, it does add a nice new feature for those of you who like to take lots of pictures.

The new feature in this version pertains to Photo Stream and one of the more annoying things with it. Photo Stream is part of iCloud and automatically keeps the last 1000 pictures you took. Unfortunately, there hasn't been any way to delete a single picture from your stream. Instead, you'd have to either kill the stream and start over, or leave the offending picture out for anyone to see. With iOS 5.1 beta 2, Apple has added the ability to delete individual pictures from your Photo Stream and that photo will disappear from all devices.

It's not the biggest change, but it's a good one nonetheless. This version of iOS 5.1 beta is set to expire on January 31, 2012, so there's a good amount of testing time built in before another beta or a full release.

Good news for the photo stream! Auto upload is especially annoying when there is no option to delete it.

Yippeee! this will save my 5gb from getting over immediately , I am so proud of apple for realizing this. Being late does not matter but waht matters is the problem is now solved. But Apple, wouldn't it be more better if you focus on some battery based updates for the ios powered devices and last but not least include option of video recording in 720p HD and 480p in iPhone 4S.
