We understand the importance of ensuring your apps work right as new versions of operating systems are released. Our Apple fanboys in the house have been working hard to get a release candidate out in the wild that supports iOS 6.
While we officially target backwards-compatible support 30 days after an official release of a new operating system version, we’ve loaded up on Red Bull and burned the midnight oil to bring you iOS 6 support today. We are pleased to release Titanium SDK 2.1.3 RC (Release Candidate) in time for the official iOS 6 release on September 19.
With the 2.1.3 RC our goal is to ensure that your Titanium apps are working properly when your customers upgrade to iOS 6. It does not include any new iOS 6 features (those are coming in a later release after we get a bit of rest).
For a complete list of the fixes included in the 2.1.3 RC, see the release notes.
To install the latest SDK using Titanium Studio, see the installation instructions or follow these steps:

Official Support for iOS 6 and iPhone 5
Titanium 2.1.3 GA will be released on September 28,2012 and will be a SDK release containing fixes for any new iOS 6 issues, other high priority issues and preliminary support for iPhone 5.
While we have done our best to test this release with the iPhone 5 simulator, actual hardware may behave differently and we will furiously test the newest member of the Apple family when it is released on September 21 (we stayed up late at night to order a bunch of them so we can be ready on Friday!).
In the case that iPhone 5 support requires additional fixes beyond what is covered in 2.1.3, we will release Titanium 2.1.4 with the necessary additional fixes, pronto.
