iCloud security tightened
Less than a month ago, Apple released the iOS 6.1 beta to developers complete with early access to new features for Maps and Siri.
Keeping up a pretty frantic pace, Apple has now a third version of the beta has been released, and along with the aforementioned attributes, iOS 6.1 may add improved iCloud security.
Safer on the cloud?
According to AppleInsider sources, iCloud users will have to answer security questions when an applicable device is first booted.
There was no indication just what these security questions entailed, just that there is likely another level of protection enabled to prevent any foul play.
iOS 6.1 is believed to be on track for early 2013, though until Apple divulges an exact date, we'll continue to track the beta updates to learn what's coming in the next version.
