Registered Apple developers can now grab the second beta of iOS 6.1.
Released yesterday, Beta 2 comes about two weeks after the first and offers the usual bug fixes along with some improvements.
The new build lets app developers take advantage of Apple's maps service, so that users can search for specific places based on a simple term. As one example, cited by AppleInsider, people could search for the word "coffee" to find names, locations, and other details of local coffee bars.
iOS 6.1 will include afor users who don't quite understand what the digital wallet does or how it works. The second beta also includes new rules to prod developers into supplying boarding passes with a date and location.
The full release notes for the software development kit for Beta 2 can be found on the Web courtesy of blog site iDownloadBlog.
Registered developers can download the latest iOS 6.1 beta by logging into Apple's Developer Web site.
