  • Apple Releases iOS 6.1 Beta 5 to Developers

    Apple has Saturday evening released iOS 6.1 Beta 5 to developers for testing. The fifth beta of the future iOS 6 update includes redesigned iPod controls to the lock screen, the ability to purchase movie tickets through Fandango using Siri, and several security enhancements. iOS 6.1 Beta 5 is for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

    The previous beta of iOS 6.1 fixed a scrolling glitch that occurred on the iPhone 5 following rapid swipes on the touch screen, in addition to the features aforementioned.

    The news of the new beta comes as disappointing for jailbreakers looking forward to the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak, as the golden master was expected to see launch sometime this coming week. iOS 6.1 Beta 4 expires this coming week as well. Hackers are waiting on iOS 6.1 to see if the new firmware can yield a public jailbreak. Unfortunately, this means jailbreakers will have to wait longer as well.

    Developers will find the iOS 6.1 Beta 5 firmware in the developer portal of Apple’s Web site. Developers will be able to grab iOS 6.1 Beta 5 through OTA (over the air) updating on an iOS 6.1 beta device shortly.

      I've just installed the beta 5 on my iPad 3 and nothing is different.
      Actually there is 1 difference, things are now SLOWER. Its a lot laggier now than IOS6.01
      The App Store used to take about 5 mins to get into my Purchased tab now it takes about 9 mins.

      The whole iPad feels lagged down. Could it be the fact I updated it instead of restored? Its pathetically slow now.
      I will be needing this jailbreak so I can speed things up a bit as this stock crap is pathetic/
      If you think Appstore is slow now,
      just wait till you try Cydia, the day the JB hits
