Developers get to use iOS 6.1 beta right now. Don’t worry, it’s beta, and it’s just designed to help them spot any potential problems before release. What’s new? Let’s take a look.
- Changes to iCloud Setup: You will now need to confirm your Apple ID for FaceTime and iMessage. You can also confirm how you’d like people to reach you (phone number, email).
- Passbook Sample Card Update: UK updates for Sample Card, Mobie tickets now say “cinema tickets,” etc.
- Reset Advertising Identifier Now Works
- Voice Dial Only: It sets up Siri for voice dialing-only. Cult of Mac uses the example that if you say “Call Tom Morrison” the iPhone won’t mistake it for “Play Morrisey.” (Good one, guys.)
- New Cellular Data Option in iTunes: This lets you download songs over your cellular connection. Well, it toggles the option, actually.
