iOS 6 Beta 2 now up for grabs for developers
Apple released the first iOS 6 beta right after WWDC on June 11th, and now it brings the second iOS 6 beta for developers. The new beta is mostly fixing some bugs and adding minor improvements, and the update is available over the air. 

One of the biggest additions in this new beta is the toggle to control whether or not you want to use the Shared Photo Streams feature. Also, Guided Access is now working in this second beta. The new version of iOS also comes with a neat animated gear icon for downloads as well as a new build number, 10A5338d.

iOS 6 Beta 2 now up for grabs for developers
iOS 6 is compatible with iPad 2 and the new third-gen iPad, the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and 3GS, as well as the fourth-gen iPod touch. The beta expires July 31st 

Before you get on with the download, make sure you’re connected to a solid Wi-Fi network as it all weighs around 300MB on the iPhone and nearly 500MB on the iPad.

9to5Mac is tracking all the new features worked on in the second beta, so hit the source below for that, and don’t hesitate to also take a look back at what features iOS 6 in general is expected to bring this fall.

Excited for iOS 6. I'm going to be using passbook alot. The one feature I really wish my iphone had is the ability to reply to text messages in the drop down notification bar... hopefully they can implement that soon

Maybe someone trusted you if you could explain why iOS is better than Android?
