Apple releases iOS 6.1 beta 3 to developers

The new beta comes three weeks after its predecessor

Apple has begun seeding iOS 6.1 beta 3 to developers this week, with bug fixes and improvements.

The changes from iOS 6.0.1 in the new beta include new ways for developers to integrate Apple's Maps into their apps, as well as Passbook improvements and changes to Safari.

Also noted by Apple Insider is the addition of iCloud security questions, which were not in the previous two iOS 6.1 betas.

The beta is build number 10B5117b, and follows the 10B5105c iOS 6.1 beta that was released three weeks ago. It's available for the second, third and fourth generation iPad, the iPad mini, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and the fifth-and fourth-generation iPod touch.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
