Apple today released 'iOS 6.1 Beta 5'; however, developers have noted that the build is actually not a beta, instead it has the build ID of a final release. Could it be that Apple is purposely delaying the release of iOS 6.1 because it knows that a jailbreak is ready to pounce?

I0n1c a well known hacker tweeted:

Developer Winocm also tweeted something interesting about the iOS 6.1 beta 5 release. It activates without a developer ID, which is pretty weird, furthermore it also has no ReleaseType Lockdown keys within the build. MuscleNerd also confirms that Apple could have actually released this beta as a public version, but chose not to.

MuscleNerd, another popular hacker, revealed that it's actually a publicly releaseable build.

Perhaps Apple will release iOS 6.1 to the public without releasing a GM first. It wouldn’t be the first time, as the company has done something like this before. If you’re a developer, download the latest beta and try it out. We’re not sure when iOS 6.1 beta 5 is set to expire. Maybe it is the GM we’ve been waiting for, but Apple doesn’t want us to know.
