Apple releases iOS 6 beta 2 to registered developersAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
It was less than two weeks ago when Apple announced iOS 6 and unleashed the first beta of the operating system to developers, and today the company has followed that up with iOS 6 beta 2. The new software is now available to registered developers either as an over the air update or in Apple's developer portal. Devs interested in grabbing the update should know that it's available to the new iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the fourth-generation iPod touch.
While the full changelog is only available to registered users on Apple's official developer website, there is one change in iOS 6 that's already been documented and posted online. As you can see in the brief clip below, the gears of the iOS 6 Settings icon now rotate while an update is being downloaded and installed over the air. For folks that aren't registered with Apple's developer program, iOS 6 is set to launch to the public this fall. And while will be released to all of the aforementioned devices, not all of the new features found in iOS 6 will be available to older products. It's not yet clear how many betas of iOS 6 will be released before the launch in the fall.
