    Default 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 had a feeling they'd release a beta 5 instead of GM,I think apple is following these devs on twitter and they know theres a current jailbreak ready for 6.1 so now their stalling with the final release until they find the hole so they patch it with 6.1

    EXACTLY Jj2345. Apple is so on to the Jailbreak community and is frantically trying to find the hole. Either way they cant touch us on 6.0.2. I just can't believe they are this much against jailbreaking. Bunch of Commies.

    MuscleNerd just retweeted this from @winocm:

    Looks like iOS 6.1b5 isn't a beta, it activates without developer registration and has no ReleaseType lockdown keys.
    Interesting.

    Agreed! For F**** sake, maybe we should encourage Evad3rs to release now ?! How many of us even care what IOS 6.1 brings to the table? I am at 6.0.2 and everything works. At this point I believe Rotten Apple is messing with the jailbreak team...

    If they are releasing a new iPad in March with 6.1 the time line says they needed a beta 5. @i0n1c did tweet : Interesting thing about the iOS 6.1 Beta 5 release is that it has the build ID of a final, not that of a beta. Although, If the devs say the future of jail breaking is looking bright I think they have a ace up their sleeve.

    More evidence to the theory this was originally a GM before they backpedalled because of the jailbreak updates.

    I was afraid of the comments the, "Dream Team" made about wanting iOS 6.1 to be released. I really hope Apple didn't catch on and made some changes with their latest BETA release....It's always good to hear news from the Dream Team, but I hope it doesn't end up ruining the holes they found.
