Apple to Release Third Beta of iOS 4.3 Today?

BGR claims that it has learned that Apple will be seeding a third beta version of iOS 4.3 to developers sometime today. The new beta, said to be build 8F5166b, would come nearly two weeks after the previous seed.

One of our Apple sources has just let us know that the company's iOS 4.3 rampage isn't slowing down. We have been told there will be yet another beta build posted for developers, wearing the build number 8F5166b, at some point today.

The interval between the first and second betas of iOS 4.3 was only one week, with Apple surprising some observers by failing to seed another build last week. Apple's seeding intervals are not always consistent, however, and the reasons for the longer interval this time around are unknown.
