Apple Seeds Second iOS 6.1 Beta to Developers




Apple today released the second beta of iOS 6.1 to developers. The beta has a build number of 10B5105c, versus 10B5095f for the first beta of iOS 6.1

As with the first beta, Apple mentions a number of changes from iOS 6.0.1, including several related to how developers can integrate Apple's new mapping service in their apps, as well as an improvement to how boarding passes are handled in Passbook, and a few minor changes to Safari.

Apple also released a beta of the Apple TV software, as well as Xcode 4.6 Developer Preview 2. Registered developers can download the betas via Apple's Developer page.

Thanks Mathias!

Does this have any adjustments to iPhone 5 wifi? My Verizon 5 does not toggle smoothly between LTE and wifi; sometimes it finds wifi at home and work and sometimes not.

Really hoping this update allows the iPhone 5 to use LTE here in Belgium, like the first beta did in Denmark.

I don't think that has anything to do with the phone or software, it is all up to the carriers.

Panorama is working again.

In beta 1 there were some text strings like push to unlock, that should have been in Danish like the rest of the phone - fixed now.

I'm wondering if they've made any improvements to safari's experience on ipad mini, such as its font rendering and maybe added functions like font size override. That would be nice.

Sometimes (pretty often) the WiFi indicator on my iPhone 5 gets stuck on one bar, only resolvable by a restart. Hopefully 6.1 fixes this.

It's not Swedish, it's Swiss. No one in the US can tell the difference. Geez.

Can anyone post a complete changelog as soon as possible. It would be nice to see if they made any new changes for the iPod Touches as well.

It is nice they are seeding 6.1 now, it means probably that they would release a new version of iTunes very soon.

That happens to me at random times, but only on my iPad. Doesn't happen on my iPhone 5 at all.

Yes they are trying to fool you, unfortunately.
