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.
