Apple Releases iOS 6 Beta 2 to Developers

| Product News

Apple released iOS 6 beta 2 to developers on Tuesday. The new version’s description, “This beta version of iOS 6 contains bug fixes and improvements,” and the detailed patch notes for the iOS 6 software development kit (SDK) include a host of bug fixes, with no new features or major changes.

iOS 6 was introduced at Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference on June 11th, and the first beta was introduced at that time. iOS 6 includes a new Apple-branded mapping service called Apple Maps (as well as a new Maps app for iPhone and iPad), new Game Center features, new Siri features, new iCloud capabilities, and more.

The patch notes specify for Apple TV, Bonjour (Apple’s local networking protocol), Game Center, iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime, Maps, Movie Player, Passbook and more. Some minor keyboard-related user interface issues were also corrected.

iOS 6 beta 2 is available to registered developers, and can be downloaded from Apple’s Developer Connection site. If you have iOS 6 installed on your iPhone or iPad, you can update from within your device.

The final version is expected to be released later in 2012.
