Three weeks ago, Apple began seeding iOS 6 beta 2 to its developer community. As summer moves onwards, so does Apple’s progress towards working out the kinks in its latest platform refresh. Today, Apple passes the next milestone, with iOS 6 beta 3 becoming available. What changes can developers expect?
Once again, the update notification doesn’t reveal more than the presence of “fixes and improvements”; what about the details, though?
Apple continues to refine its newly-Google-free Maps app. The latest build in this release shows more road detail when zoomed-out, and displays more differentiation between road types. There are also new Maps-related system settings, including a choice of measurement units and volume settings for voice navigation.
There’s new support for @icloud.com email addresses, instead of the old @me.com MobileMe accounts. In Safari, the browser now uses icons instead of text markers to access bookmarks and your Reading List.
We expect word of even more changes to trickle out over the next several hours.
