In theory, only developers currently have access to the newest version of Apple’s iOS5 software, for portable Apple devices. However, interested users can now get access to beta versions of the operating system. The first step in the process is knowing how to use Google. The next step is to make sure that your phone’s UDID (unique identifier) is registered with Apple.
While you could spend $99 for a developer account, you could also access the large market of rogue iOS activations that allows anyone who is willing to risk their phone while paying only $5 to $10 to try the new software.
