Apple releases iOS 6 beta 3 to developers

Apple has just released iOS 6 beta 3 to registered developers. It's available now over the air (OTA) via Settings, General, Software Update, or can be downloaded from Apple's developer portal.

It was 3 weeks from beta 2 to beta 3, a week longer than it was between beta 1 and beta 2, and a week longer than Apple's typical -- but not consistent -- 2 week beta cycle. No word yet on what, if anything, has changed between iOS 6 beta 2 and iOS 6 beta 3, and since pre-prelase Apple software is subject to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) we won't be hearing anything official from Apple.

iOS 6, with over 200 new features for users, and a plethora of new API for developers, is expected to be released alongside the iPhone 5 and perhaps iPad mini this fall.

Downloading it now, it's funny when people complain about bugs in iOS 6, I'm like did you use iOS 5, it's far from bug free. I have one on each device, they freeze just the same.

For a long time now, Apple always says 200 new features. Has anyone ever figured out all 200? There are the typical 8-10, but after that, what is the rest? Just curious.

Do all of the new apps work ok on the beta, like maps, the Siri enhancements, and Passbook?
