iOS 6 Beta Download Links Surface Ahead of WWDC

A bunch of download links for the iOS 6 beta has been posted at MacRumors a day before the WWDC.

The links came from a post at a Chinese forum and clicking on the links will direct you to the page as shown above. It throws a ‘session expired’ error and prompting me to log-in and download the file again, adding more credibility on these links.
Another is that Apple seems to have dropped the support for the first generation iPad as well as the 3rd generation iPod touch, while still supporting the almost 4-year old iPhone 3GS. It can be attributed to the iPad being a device with more resolution it has to manage while it only has 256 MB of RAM than the iPhone 3GS with less resolution but with the same RAM. What I’m not sure is why Apple has dropped the support for the 3rd generation iPod even it has the same RAM as the iPhone 3GS.
A beta link for Safari 6 is included too.
