Apple has released iOS 6.0.1, fixes several bugs
The highlights of the update include:
- 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 iPad 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
The total file is just under 70MB for iPhone 5 users. On the iPhone 4S, it is just about 48MB. Just go to the Settings menu, select General and then Software Update. You will be prompted to download the iOS updater application first, and then it will auto-launch the update screen to download and install the actual update. Once you are ready, if you have a good connection, the overall process should take about 20 minutes and once complete, the iOS updater application is removed. Remember, it is always a good idea to back-up your device before performing an update.

Wait a minute, since when does Ios have bugs? Isn't this suppose to be the reliable, lag and bug free OS?

Apple knows how to take care his loyal customers sincerely... Even the iPhone 3gs user love about the ios6 :)

Um, no, wendy, I manage a large Verizon agent location, and I hear people complaining about iOS 6 every day I work. I'm sure some like it, but many dislike it just as much too.

Not to mention the 3gs doesn't get all the updates of Ios6, and features it does are probably features available to you already.

What the hell is that thread? Really? you expect me to take the day off to read, root, rom my Nexus? Just so I can have an unreliable custom rom with its own bugs?
No thanks! I'll leave that to the nerds. Im done with Android.

Apple's versioning of iOS is misleading. iOS 5 should've been something like iOS 4.5 and iOS 6 more like iOS 4.5.1... minor updates that even the legacy iPhone 3GS can handle.

Kind of funny how it's an update to fix updating.

This update has made my phone faster UI wise, and a lot faster when on wifi. Never had the keyboard line thing so I can't speak on that fix.

This is how updating and bug fixing is supposed to be done.

Really? Can you send me a video file showing how? No, Okay
How about just sending me the file then, i can look it over? No good too
What about using bluetooth or email? no, oh well
I just keep playing Minecraft on my TV using my Phone/PS3 Controller Combo :-)

Surprised to see Apple Maps is not included in the update. I guess time to get lost some more? LOL :D

Apple Maps is in its infancy. Remember google maps was far from perfect when it debuted.
20. blingblingthing (Posts: 422; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
We can appreciate that nothing is perfect, but all we remember is that apple users tend to think Apple plus Ios is perfect. Now that the proof is right infront of us we need to put it to their faces and show that they were wrong.
27. PapaSmurf (Posts: 7401; Member since: 14 May 2012)
When Apple markets it as "The World's Most Advanced Mapping System," they better back up that claim. They didn't and that's why they're getting so much heat for it.
Lesson learned: If it's still in beta, don't call it revolutionary.
21. blingblingthing (Posts: 422; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
The maps are perfect, now get back on the train tracks and drive home safely.
22. BadAssAbe (Posts: 434; Member since: 22 Apr 2011)
But I thought Apple iOS didnt have any bugs and only their maps were flawed?
Well im glad this update will fix their maps..... Nevermind

They need to change where you don't have to send pictures with cellular data
