Passbook

Notes
As of iOS 6.1, the relevance behavior has changed for boarding passes that include both a relevant date and a relevant location. The date must match for these passes to be relevant. If both the date and location match, they are relevant for a longer window of time. You are encouraged to provide both pieces of information when they make sense for your passes
Known Issues
None.

Settings

Notes
In iOS 6.1, a new Reset Advertising Identifier button has been added to Advertising Settings. This button resets the Advertising Identifier so that future requests will return a different value.
Known Issues

None.

Social

Notes
Weibo shows up in the Settings app only if a Chinese keyboard is enabled.

When using the iOS 6.1 SDK on OS X v10.8 (Mountain Lion), if you use the iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.1 “Legacy SDK” in iOS Simulator, you will not be able to sign in to Twitter via the Settings pane and Twitter.frameworkwill not work correctly. If you need to test Twitter features, you will need to choose either the iOS 6.1 or iOS 6.0 Simulator run destination or test with iOS 5.x on a device. These problems do not occur when running Simulator on OS X v10.7 (Lion).
Known Issues
None.

Of course, you can only download and install iOS 6.1 beta 2 if you are a registered iOS developer. You can download iOS 6.1 beta 2 from the iOS Dev Center. If you are currently running iOS 6.1 beta 1, then you can update via OTA (over-the-air) by navigating your device to Settings > General > Software Update.

Is iOS 6.1 beta 2 looking good?
