iOS 6.0.1 Now Available, Brings Several Bug Fixes
While iOS 6 hasn’t been out very long it has been met with a fair share of criticism due to bugs and other issues that affect Wi-Fi, Cellular connections and more. The good news is that Apple seems to be addressing most of these problems in a new update to iOS 6.0.1.
According to Apple, here is the list of fixes and changes found in this minor update:
- 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
It is also worth noting that iPhone 5 users are plagued by a special bug that prevents OTA updates. Luckily, the solution is pretty simple. Head over to the Settings app, go to General and then Software Update. You’ll find instructions for downloading a special patch that will allow regular updates going forward. Once this is done you will be able to fully upgrade to iOS 6.0.1.
