Apple has released iOS 5 beta 3 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and its registered developers which is compatible for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G, iPad 2, iPad 1, and Apple TV.
Along iOS 5 beta 3 release Apple also pushed a new iCloud for Lion beta, iTunes 10.5 beta 3 and Xcode 4.2 Developer Preview 3.
iOS 5 was first unveiled last month at WWDC, Apple’s developer-oriented conference, along with the release of iOS 5 Beta 1 for registered developers. Among many of the new features present in this release, the most prominent include a new to-do system known as Reminders; enhancements to Mobile Safari; iMessage, a new exclusive instant messaging client for iOS users; and a built-in set up wizard, eliminating the need for a computer connection in order configure the handset.

iOS 5 Beta 2 was released just a few weeks later, also to registered developers only. It included several new lock screen and iMessage enhancements. It was also the first widely-available build to include wireless syncing, a new feature that allows media to be transferred back and forth between iTunes and the iOS 5 device through a wireless network, without a computer connection.
This new version of iOS 5 also requires the latest Beta 3 version of iTunes 10.5, which can also be downloaded from Apple’s Developer Site. It’s unclear what’s in the new build other than support for the new version of iOS 5.
Over the next few months, new developer builds of iOS 5 will likely be seeded until the operating system finally hits the market in the Fall.
Apple registered developers can download iOS 5 beta 3 through iOS Dev Center which requires iTunes 10.5 beta 3 to Sync.
