Apple Seeds First iOS 6.1.1 Beta to Developers

While iOS 6.1 has only been available for about a week now, Apple has already actively begun testing an update for the release, and has seeded the  first iOS 6.1.1 beta to developers. The update doesn’t include a lot of changes – but 9to5Mac notes that it does contain significant improvements for Maps in Japan.

From the release notes (via 9to5Mac):

iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 includes the following improvements to Maps for Japan: 

– Improved pronunciation of roads during turn-by-turn navigation 
– Optimized directions to more strongly prefer highways over narrower roads 
– Now indicates upcoming toll roads during turn-by-turn navigation 
– Added labels for junctions, interchanges, on-ramps, off-ramps, and intersections 
– Added indicators for transit station buildings, subway lines, and traffic lights 
– Updated freeway color to green 
– Updated icons for some location categories including fire stations, hospitals, and post offices Added 3D buildings including Tokyo Station, Japan Imperial Palace, and Tokyo Tower

It’s unclear whether or not iOS 6.1.1 will prevent users from using the new ‘evasi0n’ untethered jailbreak – although Apple does tend to be pretty active in blocking jailbreaks from their updates. The beta is available now from Apple’s iOS developer site for members of their paid developer program.
