Apple has just released iOS 6.1.1 beta to developers. This beta is available for download on Apple’s developer website. There aren’t many notable changes aside from some updates to the Maps app, but Apple may use iOS 6.1.1 to patch the vulnerabilities used in the Evasi0n jailbreak. Remember, iOS 6.1 was just released a week ago. If we spot anything new, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Here are the release notes from Apple:
iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 includes the following improvements to Maps for Japan:
- Improved pronunciation of roads during turn-by-turn navigation
