iOS 6 beta 3 heads to developers
The next beta update for iOS is now available. iOS 6 beta 3 can be downloaded as an OTA update for those who currently have iOS 6 beta 2.  The update is also on the way to the Apple Developer Center. While no one knows what changes are on the update, it is assumed that it contains bug fixes and enhancements to performance. So far, there is a new Maps section in settings to control the language used for labels. You can choose either miles or kilometers, for example. You can also control the volume of the voice giving you turn-by-turn navigation.Instead of written words, Safari now uses glyphs for bookmarks, reading list, and history.

When released this fall to the general public, iOS 6 will have more than 200 changes including the new Apple Maps app powered powered by Tom Tom with 3D Flyover, improvements to Siri, Facebook integration, improved call features, enhanced Safari and email and Shared Photo Streams for iCloud to name just a few.

Do you know what a beta process is? They allow developers to work with it for a couple of months so they can get rid of the bugs by the time it's in the consumer hands.

Wow, is that all you got. That is one of the weakest comments i've ever seen. If you're gonna talk, at least do it with style and with a good argument.

Taco he doesn't know tech. His first phone is probably a cricket android device, so now he thinks he rules.

I can't believe it, but this is one time I'll actually thumb up taco.
Of course it's a beta process. All softwares have a beta process.
Before, it wasn't trolling Apple, just telling the truth. Now, you ARE trolling Apple.
WE ALL KNOW JELLY BEAN IS BETTER. I give everyone permission to troll Apple fanboys, but don't troll about stupid things like this. God, you guys.

Dumbass that's how apple works out the bugs thru the devs. Android releases theirs with bugs, then does ota updates. Neither is perfect, yet both work. Learn your tech before u run your mouth jackass. Apple is the #1 valued company on earth... I think they know what they're doing.
