Apple Seeds iOS 6.1 Beta 5 to Developers

In a relatively rare weekend release, Apple today pushed out the fifth beta of iOS 6.1 to developers. The release comes just two days before the fourth beta, which was seeded on December 17, is scheduled to expire.


No public release timeframe for iOS 6.1 is known yet, but registered developers can download the latest beta via Apple's Developer page.

Quite wrong. Almost every single GM build of iOS and OS X has been released to the public unchanged. Thats what GM is; the "golden master," or what every single retail disc would be pressed from in the old days of physical discs.


Oh please.

The GM is released on the Dev portal. I am more than aware what a GM is. I know it is the version, barring a major bug find, that the public get. The point is that the public get the public release, they never get the GM in name. While they are often one and the same, Devs get the file designated GM before it goes public.

Go "educate" someone else. My God.

that's macrumors for you. a bunch of mods doing pointless things.

so a baseband change is the only thing apple can do in a month, truly innovative!

What's even more interesting is that the beta was created on the 24th...

Apple delaying releasing 6.1 because the jailbreak will be released immediately after.

Hurry up Apple, I want my 5 icon dock and SBSettings back!

I can't wait for 6.1 to be released and then 10 minutes later people take to the boards saying it's stale and boring and that they want iOS 7. It's almost like some people expect point updates to be major overhauls.

I know it's a minor complaint, but hopefully they fix the layout of album artwork in the lock screen.

Edit: I whipped up an example and attached it.

Kinda dumb that the "Finds and Fixes" thread was closed because they wanted the discussion to be in this news thread. This isn't the "Finds and Fixes" thread, this is a news article discussion. The last several betas had those threads and, besides the senseless stupid bickering that some immature children decided to have, it had its purpose separate to this news article.


Anyway, had some issues with the iPhone dmg after downloading, my Mac wouldn't recognize it for some strange reason. Had to redownload it. Waiting for my iPhone and iPad to charge before installing it.

Aren’t these small .x updates only supposed to be optimization, bug fixes etc...? Or am I wrong?
