Apple iOS 5 Sends Out Its First Crash Report

Rumors are that Apple has already started testing the new version of its trademark iOS operating system.

According to a report by the website ipodnn, a developer revealed the news by saying that the iOS 5 has already been put through field testing.

The report cited a tweet by Future Tap, the creator of the What To app for iOS. The tweet claims that the developer received the first ever crash report from the new iOS 5. It reads: “Just received the first iOS 5.0 crash report. MKUserLocationBreadCrumb sounds interesting.”

Apple does not usually reveal internal product test details to the outside world, but in order to test its products under 'real world situations' , the company sometimes finds itself compelled to compromise with its policy of keeping things under wraps.

Apple is expected to unveil its new versions of iOS operating software as well as that of the Mac OS X at the World Wide Developers Conference in May, 2011. The tickets for the event were sold out within 24 hours of being available.

The string in the crash report suggests that Apple is messing with its mapping and location system, a topic that has been in the news a great deal recently due to charges of user tracking.
