Apple released the first update to iOS 6 since it was released on September 19, 2012. iOS 6.0.1 was released via a free Over The Air (OTA) update to iPhone and iPad users running iOS 6. The new update iOS 6.0.1 fixes a bug that prevents some iPhone 5s from downloading OTA updates.
According to CNET, it does this by installing a special “iOS updater” app to help the process along. The app is removed from the device after 6.0.1 is installed.
The update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
- 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
