Apple has seeded iOS 6.1 Beta 5 to developers just before the expiry of iOS 6.1 Beta 4. iOS 6.1 Beta 5 supports iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS,
iPad 4, iPad 3/New iPad, iPad 2, iPad Mini, iPod Touch 5G and iPod Touch 4G. iOS 6.1 Beta 5 is not the Golden Master version as speculated earlier.
Stefan Essar aka @i0n1c tweets that the fifth beta released by Apple has the final build ID and not that of beta, which means that it is the final release.
Despite the odd beta naming, as @winocm discovered, this is actually releaseable as public 6.1 at Apple’s will. Good! Home stretch….
iOS 6.1 Beta 5 can only be downloaded by iOS registered developers only. With public release of iOS 6.1 soon by Apple. You can sign up to iOS Developer program by paying a subscription of $99 yearly.
If you are running iOS 6 beta 4 can upgrade to new beta firmware OTA Open Settings >> General >> Software Update >> Install Now.
