iOS 6.1 beta 4 released to developers for all iOS devices

By , Dec 17, 2012

Apple has released what is reportedly its final iOS 6.1 beta a few minutes ago, when it pushed out iOS 6.1 beta 4 for all iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV.

Existing beta users can access the latest update via the General > Software Update section of the Settings.app. This delta update rings in at a modest 56.5 MB, while the full fledged update comes in at 896 MB when downloaded directly from Apple’s developer portal.

As you can see from the screenshot, beta 4 addresses more bug fixes within iOS 6.1.

As always, we fully expect iOS 6.1 beta 4 to be jailbreakable, and hence, we will follow up with a tutorial showing you how to do just that in the near future.

Have you noticed any additional features or changes between iOS 6.1 beta 3 and beta 4? If so, sound off in the comments below.

Update: and like clockwork, we’ve confirmed that a jailbreak works for beta 4.

      Safari is much, much snappier. Seem to have added some significant performance to HTML5.

  • Justin

    You said “all iOS devices”, so would that include the original iPad?

    • lebboytech

      Well if the original ipad got ios 6 then it would get 6.1 but if it didnt get ios 6 then no 6.1

    • himynameisBLiNK

    Still unsure whether to update my iPhone 5 from 6.0 to 6.01 (for future jailbreak reasons). Have other iPhone 5 owners updated to 6.01 who are waiting for a jailbreak? Should I do so while I still have the chance before 6.1 is released?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Johannes.Mertens Johannes Mertens

      I updated to iOS 6.01 on my iPhone 5. I don’t think we will see a Jailbreak for iOS 6.0 only after such a long time. And for sure the Dev-Team is at least waiting for iOS 6.1 to test it out. In the end it’s a risk, but a small one. Make sure you backup your SHSH Blobs with TinyUmbrella!

      • SimonReidy

        Thanks, went ahead and upgraded to 5.01, and have backed up my SHSH blobs.

        And now the jailbreak waiting game continues. Really hope the dev team can find some exploits and produce a jailbreak for A5/A6 devices on 6.1. Stock iOS is slowly driving me insane!

      • http://www.facebook.com/Johannes.Mertens Johannes Mertens

        yeah i know what you mean. i went with my jailbroken iphone 4 for more than 2 years. Stock iOS is really annoying if you got used to a jailbroken one.

      I updated my iPhone 5 to 6.0.1 and I’m waiting for the jailbreak. To answer your question, if and when the (untethered) jailbreak comes out it will be for the latest firmware that’s out, so you can go ahead and update.

      • SimonReidy

        Thanks for your advice. I went ahead and upgraded to 6.01.

        I really hope we see a jailbreak for iOS 6.1 (final) preferably during the first half of 2013.
