Latest iOS 6 Beta Squashes Bugs, Slips in a Few New Features

Apple on Monday rolled out another update to iOS 6 ahead of its public release later this year. Following its predecessor, iOS 6 beta 2, by about three weeks, iOS 6 beta 3 is described by Apple in its release notes simply as providing “bug fixes and improvements.”

But some diligent digging by the MacRumors community has turned up a few more details. Among them, the addition of a number of new 3-D city flyovers to Apple’s new Maps app, as well as roadwork and traffic accident information and settings that allow for volume, distance and label customization.

Also included in this update, the announcement that the migration of MobileMe user “me.com” email addresses to iCloud.com has begun.

“ICloud.com email addresses are now available for iCloud mail users,” iOS 6 beta 3’s change log explains. “Users signing up for new Apple IDs, or enabling Mail on their iCloud account for the first time, will automatically receive an @icloud.com email address instead of a me.com email address. ICloud users with @me.com addresses that have been used with iOS 6 beta 3 will receive an @icloud.com email address that matches their @me.com address.”
