In addition, users can view the new Twitter icon. It is reported that a TweetSheet inside the Siri user interface has been slightly revamped in the iPhone 4S. The new update allows users to access more information on Passport's splash screen; it adds "Wi-Fi Networking" to the System Services.

"In iOS 6 Beta 1, the Keyboard would skip keyboard click sounds as you typed while typing at a steady, fast pace. This small bug has been fixed in iOS 6 Beta 2, bringing a more fluid typing experience to your fingertips," explains Modmyi.
