Apple released iOS 6.0.1 just a while ago which has been followed up with a release of iOS 6.1 beta as well as Xcode 4.6 beta. iOS 6.1 beta has a few updates for Maps, Safari and Passbook while there are some SDK updates for Map Kit. Find out more about each item after the jump.
Here’s what’s new in Map Kit for developers:
The Map Kit framework now lets you programmatically search for map-based addresses and points of interest. The MKLocalSearch class initiates a search for map-based content using a natural language string. In other words, you can enter placename information or portions of an address and have Map Kit return search results that match the information you provide. For example, searching for the string “coffee” would return the location of local coffee bars along with information about each one.

We will update this post if we find anything new.
