iOS 6.1 Beta 4: New Features & Improvements (fixes) Thread

Cook just mentioned that it will be released next week: "Next week, we’re adding 36 more carriers for LTE support. These carriers will be in countries currently not supporting LTE. Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Philippines… over 300 million subscribers."

I live in Denmark and 6.1 betas brought with it the opportunity to use LTE

EDIT: Stupidboy1000 beat me

So developers will get the GM sometime this week (possibly today) and a public release next week?

iOS 6.1 is required for using LTE in certain countries i.e. Denmark. Tim Cook has just mentioned in the conference call that they are supporting LTE in these countries as of next week. Therefore it is likely to assume we will see iOS 6.1 or another variant of iOS next week to support this.
So, say it gets released Monday around the typical time... Does the beta expire @ 12:00 AM on Tuesday?

With the length of time that has passed between the beta 4 and the possible release next week, I assume Apple has been rigourusly testing it internally so they don't have to release a GM build (whatever their reasoning).

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but am I right in saying iOS 5.1 was released at the iPad event last March without a GM build?

I don't know. With Beta 4 expiring on Monday, it would make sense for them to release a GM build before then. The pubic release could be late next week.

Based on information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS_SDK...elease_history it seems like neither iOS 5.1, 4.1, 3.1 (and none of the 2.X releases) had GM builds (that were released).

This question has probably been answered, but is there any battery improvements with Beta 4?
