Apple's been keeping busy rolling out small patches of iOS 6. The latest, iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 just hit developers. Importantly, 9To5Mac reports that the update fixes the gaping lock screen bug that allows access even with out a passcode. No word on whether it patches up the recent Evasi0n jailbreak. Unfortunately, it's only a developer beta, so you won't get the fix yet. [9To5Mac]

Just great, Apple. With a phone and an ipad, that means another 2 gigs to download, which I've already had to do twice in the last two weeks. I know you think your OS is "genius," but clearly you're idiots if you make every user download the whole OS every time you change a couple of lines of code. Genius, my ass.
