Apple's last beta test for iOS 6.1 suggests latest OS build will soon be ready for consumers
Siri can buy your movie ticket in iOS 6
Soon, Siri will be able to buy movie tickets for you. You might recall that the old girl's new abilities at the theater box office was one of the features of iOS 6.1 that was leaked out back in November. Now, there is word that Apple is internally testing the final beta version of  iOS 6.1 which would be the golden master build, leading to speculation that the latest version of iOS will soon be the hands of consumers. According to a "reliable source," the fifth beta version of iOS 6.1 is being handed over to developers either Friday or Monday, after having gone extensive internal testing.

The most recent beta was given to developers in the middle of last month and besides Siri's new fearure, users are now asked to set up security questions for iCloud when setting up their device for the first time. In November, another leak revealed that Apple would make it easier to report a problem with Apple Maps in iOS 6.1 while at the same time, the music controls on the lock screen were easier to use thanks to better spacing of the controls. Meanwhile, developers have received an enhanced MapKit for the latest iOS build, allowing third party apps to look for addresses based on a particular topic or point of interest.

So far, iOS 6.1 has been compatible with the Apple iPhone 3GS through the Apple iPhone 5, the second, third and fourth-generation Apple iPad, Apple iPad mini and the fourth and fifth-generation Apple iPod touch.
