It is of note that Apple Inc. has made iOS 6 third Beta version available as over-the-air update to developers on July 16, 2012 only to developers registered with Apple’s iOS program.
The changes likely in beta 3 version are improvements and several bugs fixed.
iO6 is due for commercial launch in the fall of 2012 as Apple’s latest updated OS used in mobiles. A highly-advanced mapping system is said to be an important feature of iOS, which may as well go on to replace the currently available Google Maps.
The link for downloading is: http://developer.apple.com/ios6/releasenotes/ and should be used only on devices used for development of beta software. Developers who are registered are advised to download this from the iOS Dev Center at www.apple.com or OTA (over-the-air).
The third beta version of iOS 6 is available for iOS gadgets iphone4s, iPhone 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPodTouch 4 versions.This third beta version is said to have replaced text with icons for many applications like Trash, Archive, and Junk in mail. Decline button and Answer button are added while receiving a call in FaceTime. Maps seem to have evolved more finely in the third beta version of iOS 6 enabling the user to view finer details of satellite-imaged maps. The logo of the application is displayed beside each application under privacy settings. There things are to be found on the iPad device. In addition, phone number can be added to Unified Messaging on iMessage on iPad.
It is rumored that Apple has added Settings for Maps app allowing users to set the volume of the voice of the navigation, ability of the Maps app to display the distance either in miles or kilometer either in English or other local languages with either a medium font size or large font size, but still data connection is needed for the maps as satellite images use up huge data for Turn by Turn navigation using the Map app.
The Reading List will sync with changes made in Safari, and there will be icons for Bookmarks, Reading History, and Reading List instead of labels with words.
Apple Inc. also plans to transition me.com e-mail addresses to icloud.com e-mail addresses as it has discontinued MobileMe and replaced it with iCloud, and this beta 3 version of iOS 6 allows users to make this transition of their e-mail accounts. Users registering for Apple IDs in this version will obtain an @icloud.com e-mail address instead of the previous @me.com e-mail addresses. They will receive an iCloud e-mail address matching their @me.com e-mail address. These @iCloud.com e-mail address are rolling out via iOS 6 beta 3 version.
The iPhone development team announced on its website that the iOS 6 beta 3 version has gained the courtesy of tethered jailbreak. One needs to point redsn0w (0.9.13dev3) and 6.0B3 iPSW to boot tether, which implies that the device should be plugged into the computer for booting, and to jailbreak beta 3.
In summary, most of the above are rumors about the application yet to be confirmed. But the rapid seeding of iOS 6 beta 3 is a serious effort in the direction of making iO6 available publicly by the fall of 2012 as promised by Apple Inc.
