Apple now up to second beta on iOS 6.1.3; update will fix passcode flaw
iOS 6.1.3 has been sent out to developers, with the necessary passcode repair. Actually, because Apple had to scramble to send out patches when they could, this is actually iOS 6.1.1 beta 2, but was renamed to iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 and includes some changes to the Apple Maps application in Japan. Those improvements include a new preference in turn-by-turn navigation for highways over smaller roads. And Japanese Apple Maps users will now be notified when they are about to turn onto a toll road.
Hopefully, Apple will push this out soon for those passcode users who are now vulnerable to having their inner secrets stolen from them.

Smells like a addiction to the brand logo if even apples looks better with Apple logo on it... :D

gallitoking, what is up my man? Long time no speak. How are things?
What's up with iOS? Now they have 6.1.3? Why is the once perfect OS having so much difficulty these days? I thought iOS was problem free? lol
16. gallitoking (Posts: 4571; Member since: 17 May 2011)
well the only ones that always seem to have a problem with Apple are the fandroids.. lol.. is always nice to hear from you SAE, everything looking good on my side of the pond...

Everything is good. Sorry for the late response, I had dinner at my parents tonight. I am glad things are going well for you.
This time of year is real busy for me, because we have to issue W2 for all employees.
Also I just wanted to point out that no OS is perfect. All OS's have issues at some point. Remember me saying that way back then? lol

lolzzzz they still can't get rid off from their buggy iOS hahahaha
No matter how many fixes or updates they release :p hahahahha

No doubt the next update will disable some other random feature! They can always release 6.1.4 and 6 1.5 and 6.1.6.......! Luckily for apple there is plenty of variations they can use until they final fix the buggy os.
The bugs have been causing a lot of grief for carrier staff instores, many customers complaining, all we can say is its apples fault

Same. It's like a turd on top of a big ol pile of sh*t!

One of the few times I will agree with you. Whoever did it has talent.

Who cares, let all there updates be same, with bugs and no improvement, to busy litigating, others, that fruit is really a bad fruit, I wonder what Gods going to do, the eyes of truth

Naaaah , I will wait for iOS 6.1.4567853 that will fix all the bugs( and I am sure that it will bring more bugs )
10. rusticguy (Posts: 2701; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
Well actually Apple is working on taking money from carriers for every patch pushed because ultimately it's the end users who pay for data so apple want's a share from that also on per user basis ... that's why you have so frequent patch fixes which always breaks something ... "1 Infinite Loop"
3. legend1 (Posts: 93; Member since: 08 Oct 2012)
hopefully it won't patch the evasion jailbreak
4. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Apple need to do much more with their OS than only fixing minor bugs, but what iOS users can expect if Apple even unable to fix minor bugs...
And according to the past, updates should fix bugs, but for some reasons in exchange they just brings few new bugs...
6. rusticguy (Posts: 2701; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
So lets see what 6.1.3 breaks so that they fix in 6.1.4 so that "1 infinite loop continues" :)

I love Android... But there is definitly a huge advantage to not allowing OEMs and carriers to modify your OS in anyway, and this is it. A fix can be coded, tested, beta tested and sent out in a matter of days. And just about everyone can get the updates. Sure, there are still hiccups here and there, but waiting months and in many cases over a year for an update is ridiculous. Hopefully, Android will see this as further proof as to why skins and bloatware need to be either Google Play apps or at the very least optional. +1 to Apple.

Oh, I'm with you on that. But if you're a VZW or Sprint customer, not even having a Nexus device helps.

The vast majority of handsets now with ics or above have the option of 'disable' for pretty much every app,stock of network bloat. For the most part bloat ware apps can be now disable and out of sight

What OEM's could do if they are so scared of all phones software looking the same..... have it come pre installed...and make it extremely easy to remove.
Like a widget or 3rd party home screen/launcher.
That way ppl that know how will remove it if they want. Those that dont mind will leave it as is. OEM and users both get what they want.

Does anyone know how long it'll take Samsung to fix their copy/paste bug?
37. jroc74 (Posts: 3458; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Show me a phone that has no trouble shooting sections. Show me in this lifetime tho, thanks.
Btw...some bugs in those trouble shooting sections are re-occuring or havent been fixed yet. Work arounds for some.

LMFAO. Don't worry apple, some day you'll get it right!
Remember: IT JUST WORKS!!!

Yeah! Keep "fixing" your vile buggy OS by making it worse each time you "fix" it! Watching them fail is vastly more entertaining than actually USING an iNovelty!
27. gmracer1 (Posts: 646; Member since: 28 Dec 2012)
I'm curious to see what bug(s) this update will bring B-)

Imagine how buggy IOS would be if they had as many devices as Android!
Should be much easier for Apple to maintain it's devices since they have so few in comparison, and Apple is proprietary!
