Apple developers now have the option to download the fifth beta version of iOS 6.1 to their devices.
iOS users looking to create applications for the new build of the operating system now have a better version to work with. Apple pushed out the fifth beta of the software just two days before the fourth beta was scheduled to expire.
Devices compatible with the iOS 6.1 beta 5 update include the 4th generation iPad, the iPad Mini, the 3rd Generation iPad, the iPad 2, the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS, the 5th generation iPod Touch, and the 4th generation model.
Apple has not confirmed an official rollout date for iOS 6.1, but registered developers can access this latest beta through the company's developer's page.
The iOS 6.1 update will give Apple users the ability to purchase movie tickets using Siri. This information was derived from leaked images that show the voice command system performing the task of finding tickets for a movie and purchasing them.
Siri in conjunction with Fandango will have the ability to perform this task and allow iPhone or iPad users to simply speak commands into the device and be ready to enter the movies instantly. Siri users looking to buy them will have to tell Siri to purchase the tickets for the movie they want to see and then their local theaters with show times will be displayed next.
The feature will be available on iOS 6.1 when it launches.
iOS 6 launched in September of last year shortly before the iPhone 5 was released. The software was unveiled at the same media event as the Apple smartphone and brought with it the company's very own maps application and removed Google's. iOS 6 also features an updated notifications system and better integrates Facebook in the same way that iOS 5 did with Twitter.
