Apple releases iOS 6.1.2, fixes various bugs but not the passcode flaw
In the midst of all of the hoopla surrounding the introduction of the HTC One, Apple on Tuesday released iOS 6.1.2. The 12.8MB update (Build 10B146) fixes a bug that was interfering with the Exchange calendar sync which was apparently the problem behind the battery drain issue. Unfortunately, the update fails to repair the flaw with the passcode. iOS 6.1.3 anyone?

Apple seems to not exactly have its act together. Serial software releases with one problem being fixed while others remain isn't exactly the best way to do software releases.

Don't worry folks, we'll have this all squared away by iOS 6.1.8...there's nothing wrong with your device! As Steve used to say, "You're overheating it wrong..."

I like how quick Apple patches up any issue on iOS. Real progression.

Mxy apple needs to step it up this year bro. Great company, but they need to hit a homer dude. Phone wise the 5S won't carry them this year. They need multiple phones, and a bigger one also.

No one worships or is controlled by apple, we including the android users simply buy what we like and stand up for it. So if we worship and are controlled by apple, then the droiders worship and are controlled by google. U droiders act like u can just sit there and disrespect iOS users all day long, and they just gotta take it. When gallitoking, mxy, and myself say something back all of a sudden the droiders get pissed and start the fanboy crap. What do u think, people are just supposed to sit there and let u diss them, and talk to them any way u please while saying nothing? Try that in person to someone's face, and see what it gets u. Where I come from you'd get your teeth smashed in.

Then that makes the android users even more of a troll. They come on apple articles specifically to bad mouth iOS while lavishly praising google.

There all in the right place, cause It's called TROLL.

Totally agree, he's just another Taco or the cmpunk or themiz.... He posts, then never replies and skives off, unlike Galli sometime he does argue, disputes...

Since u don't like what he has to say them maybe u shouldn't reply to him. U guys do the same thing to him from team android that he does to u guys from team iOS, yet it seems u can't take the heat, but u keep standing in mxys kitchen. He has the rite to post what he wants, just like u do. All u ever do is attack, bash, and insult iOS while disrespecting mxy at every turn...u just called him a pisshead for no other actual reason than him liking, and standing up for apple. I applaud him cuz no matter how u guys gang up on him, he refuses to back down and he always speaks his mind. Keep it up mxy it's your rite bro.

Yes, but their last patch (6.1.1) fixed 1 bug and brought 2 more. That's counter-productive, not progress. What's the good of having a quick patch, when it just tears more holes?

Maybe they should contact Google for help with bug-fixing ;-)

Passcode byepass ... they FAILED to fix that ... Jony is busy decorating his 17 mil house i guess so no time for S/W issues ....

I just installed it.... Looks and feel just like iOS 1.0
12. davecann2 posted on 19 Feb 2013, 16:07 2 1
hahaha.... I'm only kidding
To be honest I was planing on purchasing an Android phone as my iPhone replacment but I think I am going to wait a little longer to see what iOS 7 brings to the table. I'm also excited to see a new design for the iPhone 6 =)

As am I. I do currently own an android device, but the iPhone 5 is still my main phone. I think apple needs to step it up a little bit this year. I'm waiting on iOS 7, I just hope they revamp it. By the way have you seen the Htc one?

Yea, the HTC One looks awesome. Me personally... I really want to see what the SGS4 has in store. I do agree with you that Apple has been slacking off over the past few years. They really need to do something "Different" with iOS7.... In other words it needs a new UI.

Dont bother just wait for never, another Apples masia. ios6789 are all gonna be same.

Whenever apple needs to respond they do. This time will be no different.

Coincidental or does it seem like since they fired the head of the iOS department and replaced him with Ive, bugs are more common now? How is a hardware designer going to address all these issues with the software?

Haha, iMorans always comparing apple with cars, that is so pathetic, Car, that cost as hell, has limitations, it's details are regularly falling off, engine need firmware updates, to decrease benzin consumption... Haha. How I hate apple, incompetent disaster.
