Hard to believe, but it’s a fact - Apple has just seeded a beta for their next iOS update to the developers! With the two updated that Apple already issued - 6.1.1 and 6.1.2, only iOS 6.1 has been released three weeks ago.
Marked as iOS 6.1.3 beta 2, the first version of today’s update as actually sent out earlier this month. Due to the recent iOS bug-fixing updates, the first release - iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 was renamed to iOS 6.1.3, and now the beta 2 is available too. The update brings several enhancements to the Maps application for Japan, as it was expected, and also fixes the lock screen bug. And certainly, as always, there’s a chance it fixes the jailbreak.
Those who are jailbroken would definitely want to to stay clear of updating to iOS 6.1.3. It has been reported that the original version of this software, beta 1, did not break evasi0n, while the beta 2 has yet to be tested and confirmed.
Apple has released the iOS 6.1.1 to iPhone 4S users to fix the 3G connectivity problem, as well as iOS 6.1.2 to repair the Exchange bug, and this all happened in the past two weeks, making it safe to assume that with the entire effort the iOS releases will return to normal. The iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 is available for developers and can be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center. Once you get the update, don’t forget to come back and share once you spot something interesting in there.
