Apple has released iOS 6 beta 3 to developers and fanatics, as it prepares the mobile operating system to roll out to millions of devices this fall. While there’s no indication of what has been improved in this version (we’re still downloading ours and will update this post with impressions) the second beta was significantly more usable and battery-friendly than the first. We can only hope the same for this one, and perhaps get our first taste at PassBook, which has been sitting idle and unusable thus far.

      @andy c

      google is your friend. all you have to do is download the iOS 6 build from a random website and do a phone restore using that file.

      Back-up your s**t though before hand because alot of apps probably wont work in iOS 6

      You don’t.

    @andy c Pay $5 to a developer and they will add your iPhone’s serial number.

  • idonkey

    Hope that they have fixed the anntenna and overheat problems.

      Of course they haven’t, they’re not problems, they’re extra features that only iOS is able to get! If any other phone had these features, Apple would sue them into the ground…

    Nope, passbook is still dead.

    However: Turn by Turn maps is now working
