According to Apple release notes:
In iOS 5.0 beta 2, wireless syncing is now available for the Mac. It requires iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and OS X 10.6.8 or Lion. You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.
Wireless syncing is triggered automatically when the device is connected to power and on the same network as the paired computer. Or, you can manually trigger a sync from iTunes or from Settings -> General -> iTunes Sync (same network as paired computer required). Be sure your device is plugged into a power source when performing Wireless syncs.
In this beta, Text message notifications have a new badge on the lock screen appearing in the center, previously it was on the top. However, the badge moves back to the top after the phone goes in sleep mode. The new version also brings improvements in font in text messages giving them a crisper look.
In addition to iOS beta 2, apple has also released iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and Apple TV Software beta.
The iOS 5 beta can be downloaded from the Apple Developer site. You must have a developer account and a device registered on the site for downloading iOS 5.
