Apple iOS 5.1 Beta 2When Apple introduced iOS 5 back in October, one of the biggest features added to the company’s repertoire was its new iCloud service. In Apple’s words, iCloud gives users the ability to access their content on all their different iDevices, automatically and effortlessly. But a huge gripe began to emerge regarding photo stream once the service became public: the inability to delete photos. It seems the head honchos at Apple have been listening to our cries as Beta 2 of iOS 5.1, which was just released, allows users to do just that.

Among the obligatory bug fixes and performance upgrades, Apple’s latest beta will allow users to delete photos from their photo stream. All those incriminating photos will no longer be consumed by the cloud. Another fix that is hopefully addressed is the dreadful battery issue plaguing some iPhone 4S users. We’ll find out in due time, of course, and probably see iOS 5.1 released soon.
