Apple seeded the iOS 6.1 beta 3 (build 10B117b) firmware this morning to developers and the update is available Over-The-Air (OTA) or through the iOS Developer portal. The release of iOS 6.1 beta 3 marks 3 weeks since the iOS 6.1 beta 2 firmware was seeded to developers.
At this time the only thing known about iOS 6.1 beta 3 is that it brings “bug fixes and improvements.” In terms of new features or other subtle changes to iOS, more time will be needed to experiment with the new beta firmware.
Previous iOS 6.1 betas brought about the ability to purchase movie tickets using Siri through Fandango and enhanced Map Kit frameworks. This enhanced Map Kit framework will allow you to search for places using keywords like restaurant or coffee instead of requiring the exact address for the place you are looking for.
We will keep you updated if more information becomes available on the iOS 6.1 beta 3 (build 10B117b) firmware for the fourth and third generation iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 3GS and the iPod Touch 5G and 4G.
