iOS 6.1 beta 2

Apple has released another beta build of iOS 6.1 to registered developers. The second beta arrives less than two weeks after the first beta, and is labeled build 10B5105c. A beta update to Xcode and Apple TV are also available.

Registered iOS Developer can download the revised firmware from Apple’s Dev Center. As with the first 6.1 beta, compatible devices include iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and iPod touch 4th and 5th gen.

Similar to the first 6.1 release, the second beta seems to have very minor changes; it fixes a bug that existed in Panorama mode, has a new default Passbook page, and has some minor UI sprite refinements. You can see a couple of screenshots and read a bit more at 9to5mac.

    Seems like another boring iOS update. Can’t remember the last one that was actually worth installing and we got something meaningful, then iOS 6 was a big downgrade and we lost Maps. Only thing these updates seem to provide nowadays is slowdowns for hardware that isn’t brand new.

    Will stay far away from this when it’s released!

  2. I would be glad if someone fixed the photo frame function in iOS!

    The random function didn’t work anymore neither can you choose more than 2 folders from your library (You can choose more but iOS ignores it)

    It was one of my favorite build in “applications” and i really wonder why they coded it to worse.

    Something I have noticed for many of the current app updates is that they are only working with iOS 6 or later. Apple, for instance has iMovie 1.4 that only works on iOS 6 and other developers are doing the same thing. See, for example, Elements – a great writing app that now only works on iOS 6 and above. I am curious if Apple made it impossible for developers to keep things backwardly compatible if the updated their apps to run on iOS 6. I for one have no current intention of “upgrading” to iOS 6. The loss of Maps would far outweigh any other “features” that Apple added.
