    iOS 6 Beta Links Leak Out Ahead Of WWDC, Apple Dropping Support For Original iPad?



    Chinese forum WeiPhone.com has posted alleged download links to Apple’s iOS 6 and Safari 6 developer preview files ahead of WWDC tomorrow. Apple is expected to introduce the software on Monday, June 11th and release a preview to developers. The links provided by WeiPhone are currently inactive, but they will assumedly start serving iOS 6 and Safari 6 beta downloads for supported iOS devices once Apple lifts the curtain tomorrow.

    The iOS 6 developer preview in question sports the build number 10A5316k, and clicking one of the links takes you to Apple’s developer portal. The web address for each link says “Your session is expired,” which lends credence to the legitimacy of these download links. If they were fake, there would likely be some sort of incorrect URL message instead. A list of iOS 5 beta links was leaked in a similar fashion last year right before Apple made the first developer preview available.

    Beyond the download links themselves, the supported device list raises even more speculation. There are links for the third and second-generation iPad, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, and the third and second-generation Apple TV. Oddly, the first iPad is excluded from the list, indicating that Apple may not support the two-year-old tablet.

    If Apple chose to not support the original iPad in iOS 6, it wouldn’t be because of slow hardware. The iPhone 3GS runs a slower processor than the first-generation iPad. We’re not sure what to make of this. Perhaps the list isn’t complete? We can’t see why Apple would want to drop support for the original iPad at this point.

    A developer preview of Safari 6 for Lion is also included in the leaked list. There are no references to OS X Mountain Lion.

    You will need a registered developer account to actually install iOS 6 on your personal devices, so don’t get your hopes up thinking these links will provide you an early copy of iOS 6 tomorrow.

    Here’s the full list: For Links, click to story.

    Links To All of Apple’s Betas From Today’s Keynote

    While WWDC is currently going on, a leaked Pastebin document is floating around the web. What’s in it? A lot of goodies. iOS 5 betas, iTunes 10.5 betas, and a whole lot more. A paid developer account is needed, but they’ll all be sure to be posted on public file sharing sites by the end of the day. While I’m currently logged in to my paid developer account, I still don’t have access to them, so they’ll most likely be live after the keynote.

    Check out everything that Apple will be putting out after the break.

    Here you go!

    Once again, the above links won’t go live until after the keynote. You’ll also need a paid developer account. All of the betas will probably be uploaded to file sharing sites rather quickly, so don’t worry (if you just want to try these things for yourself).

    I can't see them dropping support for iPad 1 so early on especially while still supporting iPhone 3GS, it would be a bad note to all iPad owners and potential owners if they set the precedent that only 2 years of support is the standard, just my opinion.

    Downgrade iOS 6 Beta to iOS 5.1.1



    If you went ahead and installed iOS 6 beta and determined the buggy nature of the first developer release isn’t for you, it’s time to downgrade. Most developers should know how to do this already, but if not this process is easy and you’ll be back to running iOS 5.1.1 in no time at all.


    Downgrading is identical on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

    Turn the device off, connect it to the computer via USB, and launch iTunes

    Place the iOS device into DFU mode: with the device off, hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 10 seconds then release the power button, continue holding Home button until iTunes notifies you of a device in recovery mode being detected. The devices screen should stay black as if turned off.

    Restore within iTunes through either method a or b:

    a: Restore from the iOS 5.1.1 backup you made prior to installing iOS 6 beta

    b: Restore to iOS 5.1.1 IPSW by Option-Clicking the “Restore” button, and then restore from iCloud backup when finished

    Let iTunes restore back to iOS 5.1.1, the device will reboot when finished

    Typically you can’t downgrade iOS versions so easily, but because Apple is still signing iOS 5.1.1 this allows downgrading to commence with minimal effort.

    Troubleshooting the Downgrade:

    If you get any strange errors (3194, 1013, etc) when trying to restore, you probably have Apple’s servers blocked in your hosts file. This is relatively common for people who jailbroke a device at some point in their iOS usage. Remove any blocks to Apple’s servers from /etc/hosts and try again.

    Apple's second developer preview of Safari 6 fixes crashes




    Apple this week supplied developers with its second preview build of Safari 6, fixing an issue that would cause the pre-release software to crash.

    The update, officially identified as "Developer Preview 2," came quickly after developers were supplied with the first preview of Safari 6 last Monday, following the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote. The installer allows developers to test Apple's next major update to its Safari Web browser within OS X 10.7 Lion.

    People familiar with the updated build indicated that it addresses a crash that would occur when typing a string ending with two periods in the address field. In the first developer preview, typing two periods or auto-completing an address with two periods would reportedly crash the software.

    One of the biggest features in the forthcoming Safari 6 update is iCloud Tabs, which syncs open websites across devices such as Macs and iOS hardware. Another new feature, called Tabview, allows users to zoom in and out with multi-touch gestures to see all of their tabs currently open in Safari.

    For developers, Safari 6 features a new application programming interface for "Web Audio." It will allow them to create and customize audio effects in interactive Web applications that have rich media content, such as games or instrument simulators.

    New CSS filters are also built in to Safari 6, allowing developers to create advanced filter and pixel effects, like blurs and gradients. HTML 5 support has also been enhanced with web notifications, timed text tracks, and media synchronization.

    Safari 6 also sports improved javascript support, with the latest version of the standard, ECMA 262 version 5.1 It also has a feature that detects when Private Browsing is enabled, and gives developers the ability to build extensions that use stylesheets and scripts to change the appearance of articles viewed in Safari Reader.
