iOS 6 Beta 2 Released as Over-the-Air Download

iOS 6 beta 2

iOS 6 continues it’s march to a fall release with the freshly released second beta version. iOS 6 Beta 2 comes as a delta update available to those running the prior beta build through OTA (Over the Air) update and weighs in around 300MB.

Beta 2 IPSW will likely appear on Apple’s Dev Center with full release notes soon, but for now those running beta 1 should use OTA update to jump to the newest version.

The update probably focuses on bug fixes, but one change to be immediately noticeable is the new spinning gears animation when an over-the-air update is installing, shown in the video below:

For developers who tire of running the latest beta version, it’s still easy to downgrade from iOS 6 back to iOS 5.

    Not necessarily true. There may be a small gear between the two in front. The big gear spins the right gear, the right gear spins a small invisible one, and that small “invisible” one spins the left gear…

    The gear on the bottom left is spinning the wrong way
