Apple releases iOS 6 beta 2 to developers OTA

In typical fashion Apple released little information about the iOS 6 beta 2 update other than that it contains "bug fixes and improvements."

Apple tonight pushed its first major update of iOS 6.0 out to developers. The beta 2 update appeared in the form of an Over The Air (OTA) update that was pushed to devices running iOS 6 beta 1.

Developers running the first iOS 6 beta received a push notification of the update at around 9:45 p.m. ET (pictured at right.)

MacRumors notes that iOS 6 beta 2 is labeled as build 10A5338d (Beta 1 was build 10A5316k.) Oh and the gears in the Settings icon spin in a spiffy new animation when you're downloading the new beta (video).

iOS 6 beta 2 weighs in at 299MB on the iPhone 4 and 497MB on the iPad 3 (below).
