    Default Six Things, Plus Two, That Are New In iOS 6 Beta 2


    iOS 6 Beta 2 was released to developers today as we reported just hours ago. As we promised, here are some of the new things we've caught in the new iOS 6 Beta 2 build – six things, plus two, (to celebrate iOS 6 Beta 2) to be exact.

    1. Apple Tweaked Passbook A Little Bit

    The new application that ships stock with iOS 6, Passbook, has been updated to be a little more specific on its details. It’s not a major change, but noticeable. Being more specific was probably a good move by Apple since the application is new and people need to understand what it does and how to use it.


    2. Twitter Icon Updated Universally

    Twitter’s own icon has been changed, showing us a Twitter bird that is rotated a few degrees counter-clockwise. Apple appears to have universally changed the icon to match Twitter’s new icon. Unfortunately, Twitter still has yet to update their own application icon to go along nicely with these changes in iOS 6 Beta 2. Interestingly enough, the change now makes the new iOS 5 jailbreak widget that we showed you even more realistic-looking.


    3. The Keyboard No Longer Skips Keyboard Clicks

    In iOS 6 Beta 1, the keyboard would skip keyboard click sounds as you typed while typing at a steady, fast pace. This small bug has been fixed in iOS 6 Beta 2, bringing a more fluid typing experience to your fingertips.


    4. The Calendar Now Shows End Times From Notification Center

    In iOS 6 Beta 1, if you set a Calendar event and it showed up in Notification Center, all it would show you is when the event started. With iOS 6 Beta 2, Notification Center shows you not only when the event starts, but also when it ends. This is a nice little touch because it gives you more information than before.


    5. Apple Re-introduces the 3G Toggle

    In iOS 6 Beta 1, Apple seemed to have dismissed the 3G toggle from the operating system. It was a depressing choice since 3G uses more battery than 2G (Edge), but with iOS 6 Beta 2, Apple seems to have brought the toggle back. This is a great decision for users since it gives us more control over our battery.


    6. The FaceTime Preferences Pane No Longer Crashes

    In iOS 6 Beta 1, the Settings application would just freeze and crash when you tried opening the FaceTime preferences pane. With iOS 6 Beta 2, you can now harmlessly open the FaceTime preferences pane and change around your FaceTime options.


    7. Guided Access Now Enabled

    Guided Access is a cool new feature by Apple that ships with iOS 6. It is now enabled in iOS 6 Beta 2. You can enable it from the Accessibility preferences pane where you will be asked to set a pass code for enabling and disabling it. You can enable Guided Access from within any application and disable it by performing the triple-click home once more and then entering your pass code.


    8. Guided Access Integrates With Triple Click Home

    If you remember that you could triple-click your home button to bring up an “ask” menu that asked you if you wanted to turn on white on black or VoiceOver, then you will now find that interface to be a little different. It no longer offers you the ability to ‘ask’ what you want to do. Instead, Guided Access will be enabled by default (if you have it turned on) and selecting anything else in the list will start creating a custom ‘ask’ menu. Now, the next time you triple-click the home button, you will be asked if you want to perform any of the actions you have selected from the list – including guided access.

    For now, this is all we have found. If we find anything new, you will find it right here on ModMyi!

    One thing that I found fixed was that now when a UIAlertView opens, the gradient view in the back opens with a smooth animation like iOS 5. On iOS 6 beta 1 there was no animation and each alert looked kinda bad.

    Same here, it's on the i4 but not the 4S. Going back to 5.1.1, rather have the JB than iOS 6 at this point.

    Then there's also the New Spinning Gear Animation in the upcoming iOS software update. Read about that over at iClarified. Just sayin'!

    I wasn't able to type in the maps search field in Beta 1. I could use Siri or pick previous searches in my maps history but typing anything caused an immediate crash Every time. I'm happy to report Beta 2 works great and I can now properly type in a search into maps! Beta one cause my dashboard to restart when I did a Facebook post via pull down notification screen. Hopefully Beta 2 fixed that as well (about to test)

    Does the 3g toggle now persist across reboots?
    With iOS 5.1.1, there is a problem where even if you turn data off, and the 3g toggle as well, when you reboot the phone, 3g is turned back on.
    The problem doesn't seem to happen with respringing.
    I hope this issue is fixed, as it was very annoying to have to turn off each time. 3g also comes back on automatically if you have data enabled and reboot.

    I have the 4S (ATT) and iOS 6 beta 2 and I don't have a 3G toggle. Is it because ATT uses the 4G implication?
