iOS 6 Beta links have been leaked and posted on ahead of WWDC tomorrow, where Apple is expected to announce and introduce the new operating system.

The alleged download links to Apple’s iOS 6 beta are currently inactive, but will probably start serving for supported iOS devices after Apple’s announcements tomorrow.

The iOS 6 developer preview sports the build number 10A5316k, when clicking the links takes you to Apple’s developer portal, with an error message “Your session has expired.” The links also appear to offer both consumer and enterprise versions of iOS.


A developer preview of Safari 6 for Lion is also included in the leaked list. There are no references to OS X Mountain Lion.

There are links for the third and second-generation iPad, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch, and the third and second-generation Apple TV. Missing is links for the third-generation iPod touch and the first-generation iPad, indicating that Apple may not support the original device.

Last year WeiPhone correctly leaked the same links.

    iPhone 3GS but not iPad?
    what gives?

    I’m a little annoyed they’re dropping 1stGen iPad support.
    It could be because of the new maps and Siri. But just leave those things out then. I’m sure the 1stGen can handle everything else.
