Moments ago Apple just released iOS 6.1 Beta 5 for its expiring iOS 6.1 Beta 4 on Monday’s Midnight to put away the iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak that is almost ready and waiting for the final version of the iOS 6.1 to arrive. The arrival of iOS 6.1 Beta 5 at the eleventh hours by Apple might have dishearten many of the users awaiting for the Jailbreak because every one was expecting the semi-final release of iOS 6.1 that is the GM version of iOS 6.1 to arrive some time soon because iOS 6.1 Beta 4 was set to expire on Monday Midnight.
It is the first time in history that Apple has taken this long to release a new Beta for its upcoming iOS. Indeed, we can say that Apple cannot live without playing with its users. This hilarious build of iOS 6.1 Beta 5 brings in some major enhancements for both the users and developers. At the developers end, they are welcoming the new iOS Maps Api’s to improve the Apple’s iOS Mapping system that is still not fixed or stable. As far as the users are concerned, they will be seeing some new features in SIRI such as Movie Ticketing, New UI for Music Player, and many other features in iOS 6.1.
However, we are still skeptical about the final release of iOS 6.1 because Apple has just announced its iOS 6.1 Beta 5, where as people were heavily expecting a GM version of iOS 6.1. So far, there is no O.T.A Update for iOS 6.1 Beta 5 for iOS 6.1 Beta 4 users, but we will suggest them to do the manual update because iOS 6.1 Beta 4 expires on Monday midnight. The iOS 6.1 Beta 5 version will only be available to Developers as usual for the iPhone/iPod/iPad from the Dev Centre.
As far as the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6 is concerned, it is too early to say anything about it because no words have been said by the Evd3rs or the iOS hackers working on the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6. We hope that the iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak still persists.
