iOS 6.1.3 Beta 2 Released to Developers
Apple Thursday afternoon seeded iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 to iOS developers for testing. iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 is the second beta of the iOS 6.1.1 beta
that was seeded to developers a couple of weeks ago, although it has been renamed because the latest version of iOS is currently iOS 6.1.2
and iOS 6.1.1 was the chosen name for a hot-fix on the iPhone 4S
iOS 6.1.3 includes all of the improvements to the Maps application that were included in the iOS 6.1.1 beta, including the additional support for Japan, optimized directions, and improved road pronunciation as pointed out by 9to5Mac
In today’s beta version, iOS 6.1.3 appears to have fixed the iOS 6.1 lock screen security issue
that could allow someone to bypass your passcode and access information such as your contacts, photos, phone history, and more. Apple made an official comment about the security issue, saying "Apple takes user security very seriously. We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update."
It is not yet known if the update patches the evais0n jailbreak. It is recommended that users avoid the update when it is released to the public until hackers have made an official announcement on what to do. Being that the update is only in the second beta, it probably has a while to go still before it hits the public's hands.
