Apple Seeds iOS 6.1 Beta 2 To Developers


Apple kicked-off November with the release of not just iOS 6.0.1, but the first beta version of iOS 6.1 for its developer community. Now, less than two weeks later, Apple is follow that up with the second iOS 6.1 beta, going out to developers today.

It may be a little while before we learn about just what’s changed in this new beta, and find out about any new features Apple’s been working on, but we’re already hearing reports about some of what’s new.

There’s a new design for the Passport card that explains just what the app can do, featuring one condensed block of text rather than a use-by-use breakdown. Panorama support works again in this beta, after it was broken in the first iOS 6.1 beta release. We’re also hearing about the ability to download individual tracks when using iTunes Match.

The way things are going, we might hope to see iOS 6.1 publicly released before the end of the year.
