It’s been only three weeks since Apple released the last beta build of iOS 6. However, it seems that Apple wants to pack a whole lot of features into it quickly. Apple probably wants its developers to test out the new features well enough before they are rolled out to all Apple users. That’s why, the company has released the third beta build of iOS 6 for the developers pretty quickly.
If you are a registered Apple developer, you can easily access this new build by downloading it from the ‘Software Update’ of your iPhone, iPad or iPhone Touch. As usual, you also have the option of getting a full download of the beta directly from the Apple developer portal.
One of the most significant changes in this new beta build of iOS 6 is that in comparison to the last build, it contains new options to tweak the Settings of Apple’s iOS Maps. To be exact, these new Settings include options such as adjusting the scale of turn-by-turn navigation as well as providing the users with options to measure distance in either kilometers or miles.
In the last beta release, Apple had primarily focused on fixing a number of issues related to touchscreen keyboard performance. As had been the case with earlier iOS 6 beta release, this beta is also compatible with only iPad, iPad 2, new iPad, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and 4th-generation iPod Touch. This essentially excludes a number of Apple devices from a whole lot of new features of this new iOS release.
