Apple has just pushed iOS 5 Beta 3 to developers, bringing bug fixes, enhancements, new features and APIs with the update. This comes barely 2 weeks since the seeding of iOS 5 Beta 2. Notable changes in this build – a new icon for Reminders, iTunes-free setup and custom text messaging tones. In Beta 2,  there was strong evidence of Over-the-Air (OTA) updates via 3G and WiFI in the SDK. “PC-Free” is coming closer to fruition! *jumps for joy*.
