    Default iOS 6.1 Beta 4 Released to Developers


    Apple Monday released iOS 6.1 Beta 4 (build number 10B5126b) to developers for testing. The update is available from the developer’s portal on Apple’s Web site and through OTA (over the air) updating on the testing device running at least iOS 6.1 itself. The update is about 100MB in size and varies depending on the device.

    iOS 6.1 doesn’t add any known major features to iOS 6, however it does re-design the lock screen’s iPod controls to match that of the design in the new iOS 6 Music application. Apart from this change, most of the other changes are minor.

    Not much is known about what iOS 6.1 Beta 4 brings, but we will keep you updated should information surface.

    iOS 6.0.1 is still the latest public release of iOS for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

    As Anthony says, 6.1 has almost zero new features. Apple is just patching some exploits that planetbeing has been working on.

    That is an interesting comment. How do you, or how do you figure that? Unless Apple got word from an insider, how would Apple know what to patch?

    They actively test their software to try and find holes...like most software developers.

    That still does not mean that is the reason for an update with only small fixes. This all just speculation anyway.

    They must know something because ever new apple release most of the time the jailbreak is broken and were stuck waiting. If they don't have a insider they do more looking into things then most of us think.

    I know that. I am studying to be a software engineer. What the other user was stating is something else. The other user is stating that they are patching exploits. I am saying we dont know what they are doing.

    I am really starting to feel like JB'ing is. That really makes me kind of sad. I have enjoyed Jailbreaking my phones.

    I think that iOS 6.1 will be the last hoorah for iPhone 3GS owners. I feel that when Apple releases 6.2 and possibly adds features to it, we will be excluded from all the Reindeer games. Time to score that 4S on Craigslist!

    I've managed to jailbreak almost every iOS release I've thrown at my device (3GS). Not sure how the iPhone 5 crowd is fairing but they say that beta is only intended for developers.

    I only imagine that Apple has the top iOS developers on board since it invented the platform. Unless you're suggesting Apple surfs the tech blogs and only writes fixes when someone ******* about them online. That'd make for a horrible business model...

    Of course, but you still can't assume they are patching planet beings exploits

    I read online the other day a statement about that, we haven't heard anything, but here's a thought. Within the last couple weeks @chpwn (grant paul) has updated many of his tweaks to iOS 6 compatability, why now? Why not when iOS 6 was released? Why update with support if the jailbreak isn't progressing? Remember he was the first to fail break 6, so he could've done it then. But he chose now, something has to be up otherwise he wouldn't worry about support for tethered a4 devices and 3GS. As well as other devices.
