    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

    [​IMG]
    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.

    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.

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

    According to the notes on the Dev site

    Apple TV
    Apple TV Software beta
    This is a pre-release version of Apple TV Software to be used for testing AirPlay with your iOS apps.

    Bah was hoping for iTunes extras :)

    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.

    Well, here in Denmark it had everything to do with Apple and nothing to do with the carriers. The carriers had been ready since the iPhone 5 came out, but waiting for the small software update we've seen in Denmark in 6.1 beta 1 :)

    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.
