Apple releases iOS 6.0.1 to squash various bugs

Today, Apple released iOS 6.0.1, the first update to the recently-released operating system.

The new update squashes a number of bugs, including some that are specific to the brand-new iDevices that Apple released in September. Here’s the complete list of fixes:

  • 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

For what it’s worth, the last two bugs in that list were among the reasons that some companies told their employees not to use an iPhone 5 – or even update their existing iPhones to iOS 6! In other words, that means this update was desperately needed by a number of people.

It’s a healthy update, chock full of improvements across the board. And considering that it’s also fairly small – my 4S’ update weighed in at 47.6MB – it’s certainly worth the download. Head over to iTunes and plug your iDevice in or go to Software Update on your phone to start downloading.

    Since it looks like most of the bug fixes relate to the iPhone, it makes sense that the download for my iPad would be significantly smaller, and it was, coming in at just under 38MB. Thanks for the heads up!
