Apple today released 'iOS 6.1 Beta 5'; however, developers have noted that the build is actually not a beta.

I0n1c a well known hacker tweeted:

Interesting thing about the iOS 6.1 Beta 5 release is that it has the build ID of a final, not that of a beta.

His comments were followed up on by winocm:

Looks like iOS 6.1b5 isn't a beta, it activates without developer registration and has no ReleaseType lockdown keys.

MuscleNerd, another popular hacker, revealed that it's actually a publicly releaseable build.

Despite the odd beta naming, as @winocm discovered, this is actually releaseable as public 6.1 at Apple's will. Good! Home stretch....

Just tried to update my phone last night while hooked up to the computer. Still didn't work. So, what you are saying is untrue.
