iOS 6 Beta Features and Updates
The highly awaited iOS 6 beta should be introduced to the public at the WWDC 2012 within the few hours. It’s not a wonder that lots of interesting things are happening around the release for the last 12 hours. The first stunning news was the leak of initial iOS 6 beta links for all the devices. About an hour ago a rumor about iOS 6 features compatibility also surfaced. I tells that the firmware could not be compatible with the first-gen iPad. Read on to get more info on it.
Guys from Chinese forum WeiPhone.com said that they have the download links for the latest Apple’s firmware expected to be released at WWDC 2012. All the top Apple related blogs have posted the download links. However they looked like they’ve expired a long ago. Links included such devices as:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4S
- iPad 2
- iPad 3
- iPod Touch 4G
- Apple TV
By clicking on them users are redirected to the page saying “Your session has expired”, meaning that the links are not working anymore. By trying to change the url to get the different build you’ll get an error message saying ‘Access denied’. That means the builds are really there but simple mortals don’t have access to it right now.
On the other hand, Apple may preparing those download links for WWDC so developers could download the iOS 6
beta as soon at it will be announced using the link.
The very interesting fact about the list off supported devices is the absence of the original iPad there. That can mean at least two things – the list with download links isn’t completed yet or Apple really decided to discontinue the support of the original iPad which is pretty ridiculous because there will be a lot of customers dissatisfied with this fact. iPhone 3GS which has slower processor is still on the list which makes even less sense.
There’s less than 12 hours left until the initial WWDC 2012 start and we all are waiting on any info about iOS 6 beta release. The newest firmware is expected to bring tons of new stuff and claims to be ‘The world’s most advanced mobile operating system’. We’ll see if it’s true very and very soon.
