Second iOS 6 beta adds Photo Stream, Reading List toggles

updated 05:17 pm EDT, Mon June 25, 2012

Makes minor Twitter changes

Users are already starting to discover some minor differences in iOS 6 beta 2. 9to5Mac notes that people can, for instance, toggle Shared Photo Streams on and off, controlling whether or not previously shared photos can be viewed by others, or if a user has access to friends' streams. Another new toggle is a relocated Reading List cellular sync option; whereas people once had to go into Safari settings to change it, the toggle is now located next to ones for iTunes and iCloud documents.

The update further includes a pair of Twitter changes. A new Twitter icon is featured throughout the OS, even though the company has yet to update its official app with it. Also slightly adjusted is the design of the TweetSheet used in Siri, though the TweetSheets in the rest of iOS have been left unchanged.

Calendar listings in the Notification Center now show dates and ending times, and Guided Access mode has become available. The latter locks people into a single app, optionally disabling interface elements others shouldn't touch. Smart Banners are newly visible in Safari; these tell visitors to a website that a dedicated app is available and link to the App Store.

Hacker iH8sn0w observes that the beta expires on July 31st. That day is the same day Apple shuts down iWork.com, which may hint that the next beta will be updated to reflect the move.
