iOS 5 is getting closer and closer to its Fall 2011 release. Registered developers who have already got their hands on the iOS 5 beta have just received the latest version, which adds “Assistive Touch” to the iPad and complete control over location services.

The new-fangled system aims to give one tap access instead of the iPad’s usual gesture controls. By pressing on one corner of the iPad screen, users are granted access to a menu which gives users the chance to lock the rotation tool, control the volume, and to use pinch to zoom.

The new beta also improves control over location services significantly, now offering switches that allow users to control over everything from location-based iAds and traffic to diagnostics and usage.

As noted yesterday, iOS 5 beta 3 is now available to registered developers through the Dev Center.
