More iOS 5 crash reports point to AT&T, loose requirements

updated 10:35 am EDT, Thu April 28, 2011

Testing includes iPad 1

FutureTap has received four more iOS 5 crash reports since its first, an update reveals. Notably, four out of the five originate from AT&T's headquarters, indicating that the carrier is already a partner in testing the new firmware. Apple may be hoping to have iOS 5 reasonably complete for a preview showing at early June's WWDC event.

Another significant detail of the reports is that all of the devices involved are existing hardware, rather than experimental. The AT&T units for instance are all identified as iPhone 4s, while the lone Apple handheld is actually an iPad 1, not even an iPad 2. This suggests that iOS 5 will at least support A4 processors, rather than demanding the iPad 2's A5.

Compatibility with earlier processors could be up in the air. iOS 5 is expected to be a major overhaul, for instance improving mapping and location services. It may also make cloud services a central element, and address Apple's oft-maligned approach to push notifications. Currently it's impossible to see a full list of recent notifications, and those that shown may contain little information.
