Apple Seeds iOS 6.1.3 Beta 2 to Developers with Fix for Passcode Lock Bug

As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple has seeded iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 to developers. In line with our suspicions following the launches of iOS 6.1.1 and 6.1.2 emergency bug fixes released over the past two weeks, the original iOS 6.1.1 beta track has now been relabeled as iOS 6.1.3 with this second beta.

6_1_3_10b318
Release notes for the original beta version had indicated that it focused on Maps improvements for Japan, and Apple indicates that the beta now addresses the passcode lock bug publicized last week.

The release of the new beta comes just over two weeks after the release of the first beta version, although at least part of Apple's team has undoubtedly been sidetracked by rushing the emergency Wi-Fi and Exchange bug fixes through development. A target date for a public release of iOS 6.1.3 is unknown.

It won't be too long until people recount "memories" of him walking on water and feeding 10,000 people from 5 magic mice and a MacBook Air!

The wake from sleep issue still not fixed.
What "wake from sleep" issue?

Seriously. With EVERY release, people do this. Wake from sleep issue not fixed! WiFi issue not fixed! Battery drain issue not fixed! Rattling sound issue not fixed! Facebook app crash not fixed! GPS issue not fixed! Fart smell issue not fixed! Yellow-blotch-in-photos that is DEVASTATING THE COMMUNITY not fixed!

Where can I read about all these issues?

EVERY release is then followed up by posts like "EXXXXTREME BATTERY DRAIN ISSUE REMAINS!" and "Safari is snappier!"
