Lately, MacRumors has made a roundup regarding the iOS 6 Beta post published on WeiPhone, stating:
“The accuracy of the claim can not be confirmed given that the links are not yet pointing to the files, but clicking on the links does take users to an error page stating “Your session has expired.” Altering the URLs to reference a different build number or making other changes yields an “Access denied” error message, suggesting that there is indeed something unique about the URLs.”
