iOS 6.1 Beta 3: Here Are The New Features In The New Version

Posted on Dec 5 2012 - 5:21pm by Muhammad Umer

Yesterday Apple released iOS 6.1 beta 3, for developers and available for all devices compatible with the sixth version of the operating system. For now, there are few innovations that have been identified.

As anticipated the innovations introduced by the latest beta of iOS 6.1 are really few. Waiting to see some “hidden change,” if there were any, here is a list of those that have already been identified:

Changes to iCloud Setup

When you set to use the iCloud for the first time on the device, you are prompted to type the password of your Apple ID for FaceTime and iMessage. You will also be asked how you wish to be contacted by people and that you can change your selection later.

Sample Card Updated on Passbook

Within Passbook there are ticket examples so that you can become familiar with the App before you start it to use with real ticket. These examples have been updated. In the United Kingdom the words has changed “movie tickets” with “cinema tickets” and “theaters” with “cinemas”.

Reset Advertising Identifier is Working Now

This command was not working in the previous version, but now the problem has been corrected and asked for confirmation to proceed with the reset.

Voice Dial Only

The Voice Control is the predecessor of Siri in iOS, as well as a viable alternative in the event that we were not interested in voice assistant, but only limited to execute voice commands, make a call or play music. Is now introduced the ability to use Voice Control only for calls, so as to avoid starting a song when you want to make a call.

Cellular Data Option for iTunes

Within the settings we can adjust the data traffic of some applications, allowing or not these Apps use the cellular connection. With this new beta adds the item “iTunes” which by default is disabled. So we have to activate it by entering in the settings if you want to download songs or videos via iTunes with the 3G connection.

We can say that there has been no news of particular interest in the beta 3.
