The time has come to brace your self for an update coming on its way by Apple to fix the Evasi0n Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6.x.x. The update coming by Apple isn’t any ordinary update because Apple has just released a new version of iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1 to registered Developers only. This new version of iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1 has been seeded internally to the registered Developers, as Apple did at the time of iOS 6.1. Those developers registered for private Beta testing can only use this build of iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1.
This new build of iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1 brings some major over haul for the Japanese Maps. As noted by 9to5mac, the changes in this build of iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1 are limited to Japan and all the changes listed in the change log are related to Japan. None of the changes reflects any other countries than Japan. The improvements made or the areas on which Developers need to focus are:
- Improved pronunciation of roads during turn-by-turn navigation
- Optimized directions to more strongly prefer highways over narrower roads
- Now indicates upcoming toll roads during turn-by-turn navigation
- Added labels for junctions, interchanges, on-ramps, off-ramps, and intersections
- Added indicators for transit station buildings, subway lines, and traffic lights
- Updated freeway color to green
- Updated icons for some location categories including fire stations, hospitals, and post offices Added 3D buildings including Tokyo Station, Japan Imperial Palace, and Tokyo Tower
Even after seeing the change log of this new build, the focus of Apple is for Japan Maps and few locations of Tokyo. Other than this, the news of iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1 release strikes as lightning for the iOS 6.1 updaters because the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6.x.x was released few days back with the name of Evasi0n by The Evad3rs. Therefore, it is widely expected that Apple will be patching the Untethered Jailbreak by Evasi0n with this update of iOS 6.1.1 because Apple hates Jailbreak more than iOS lovers hate Android.
If you are on iOS 6.0.x and waiting for a good time to update your iDevice, then don’t just sit back and relax, move your self and update to iOS 6.1 before Apple releases iOS 6.1.1. If iOS 6.1.1 debuts before you update to iOS 6.1, you will lose the most awaited Untethered Jailbreak for sure and will miss all the fun. Now the choice is yours.
