Apple Releases iOS 6.0.1 to the Public and iOS 6.1 Beta to Developers
Apple has just released iOS 6.0.1 to the public. Most crucially, the update fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 users from getting software updates wirelessly. That aside, the update also fixes other bugs. Check out the list from Apple below:
- Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air
- Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
- Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
- Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
- Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
- Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
Along with iOS 6.0.1, Apple has also sent out a beta version of iOS 6.1 to developers. One of the most telling changes in iOS 6.1 is the revision of the "Report a Problem' option in the Maps app. What was previously a small link has now become a large, full-fledged button.
It certainly seems that Scott Forstall's departure has done little to slow down Apple's efforts to improve their iOS software and make it a better product.
