    When is it coming out and what do you want fixed asap?

    Itunes match and the music app for me needs a serious fix. Really buggy and crashes constantly.

    June 5th was iOS5b1, June 24th b2, and Juli 11th beta 3 if I'm not mistaken.

    I think it'll be another week at least (guessing: June 29th). It's just guesswork tho.

    My biggest hopes for fixes: maps. I can't search in them, it crashes on text enter. The logs don't give me any answers to why.

    If iOS6 is anything like iOS4 and iOS5, the music player app will be one of the last things fixed. It was always buggy/crashy in early betas, and many features that work in shipping versions of the OS with 3rd party hardware (docks, cars, ets) did not work in most of the betas. I wouldn't get your hopes up for a better music player app in beta 2 if history is any indication.

    isn't there an expiration date on the beta? so sometime after that would be a good guess

    Before the expiration date I'd say. No point in Beta 1 running out and No Beta 2 to replace it with.

    Well I needed to test the beta on my companies app, and i have an ipod touch specifically just to test betas. I do mess with it however and I saw the really poor music app. Not that I care my personal iphone runs 5.1.1 It's my first year as a dev and all of this experience is new to me.


    Does anybody know or have any educated guess whereas beta 2 will be OTA or full restore?

    ----------

    This is very interesting, because for me most of the apple apps are REALLY buggy, itunes, app store, music, passbook, reminders etc, but the 3rd party apps (shazam, spotify, instagram etc) run pretty well! Kind of ironic..

    Beta 1 isn't the one for app testing, though it's still done, it's more for API testing.

    Also, I'd hope you're testing the app on the beta, not the beta on the app :cool:

    Soon. Probably next week some time.


    Excited for it, as this has been the most stable beta 1 out of any beta 1.

    So iOS 6 beta2 is likely to be sweet cakes.

    Looking forward to Beta 2 because I honestly don't think there's too much work to be corrected bug wise.

    i went back to 5.1.1, the slow text input/keyboard lag was driving me insane. some people have it and some dont i dont understand it.

    i also experienced:

    springboard crash on speaker phone calls 5-15mins long

    when using headphones/earphones for phone calls there would be static out of nowhere 5-8mins into calls

    wallpapers were zoomed out, you had to zoom in to set one.

    missed phone calls (could be at&t)

    appstore very slow


    i hope beta 2 fixes these issues and ill happily go back to 6.0

    Beta is pretty stable but the brightness bug and music player bugs are a bit annoying. Beta 2 could drop any day, just keep checking here and the dev site.

    My guess is full restore cuz beta-1 has a bug that lets anybody install it, developer or not.
    Maybe there's already a UDID check built into the OTA update system but if not they're probably going to need the full restore to close that loophole.

    Think of all the extra beta testers. Windows have no problem leaking/releasing their next OS.
