iOS 6.0.1 coming in weeks, brings improvements and bug fixes
According to a new rumor, Apple is currently testing the first update to iOS 6, which will be iOS 6.0.1. The good news is that the relatively minor update is expected to become available in a few weeks.

But what is it going to fix? Well, if this unofficial info is to be believed, iOS 6.0.1 will get rid of some really annoying bugs like the horizontal lines appearing at times when typing with the QWERTY keyboard or opening a folder. A bug which prevents the flash from going off in certain situations should also be taken care of, while Wi-Fi support is expected to get improved.

That, and a bunch of other improvements and bug fixes will all be part of the 6.0.1 update, expected to roll out in a few weeks. In addition to that, however, the source mentions that the more major, 6.1 update is also being worked on, though it doesn't believe for it to be ready until early next year. Sadly, there is no info yet what the 6.1 update is going to bring to the table.

i follow technology trends and I have the freedom to voice my opinion regardless of whther I use iOS or not...I haven't practically dealt with all matters of importance to mankind on Earth but I do have opinions on them based on learning which we humans do to evolve.

And yes I do have an iPad and I am quite bored with it now...and there are a few other iDevices in my household belonging to my familia...hope that answers your question mate...So now do I have the permission to voice my opinion?

Statement only holds true for version 2.0 and before. Sorry.

iOS is playing catch up to Gingerbread, and is no where near Jellybean.

Oh dont play victim here!
People have opinions and they voice it...android users dont single out iOS users and bash them or something, yes you find most of the public opinion on this site in favor of android because android has a much larger customer base so its natural that statisticallly most of the people on the site are using android and therefore are in favor of it

Fuuny how you say iOS users are being singled out on this website...I for one got banned because I said something against iOS usage...I was thinking this is iPhoneArena instead of PhoneArena but hey its the site moderator's choice to do what they see fit according to the rules...

Hey mods I actually love the site and respect your reporting of tech news...but dont BAN me again :)

Droid x since when did u degenerate into uselessly insulting apple bro? I remember reading posts of yours regarding apple, and iOS that made me really respect your opinion. Now u seem to have sunk into the crowd, instead of being the usual intellectual u normally are. SMDH!!!

Didn't you see the wink at the end of the post? I am not insulting iOS. I could have gone real hard on iOS. Instead, I used a facetious comment to play off Pow's post. As an aside, it seems that the iP5 is at the top of the benchmarks at the moment. Apple does have an out-dated UI. Conversely, they have a very robust security model (probably the most robust in the mobile industry at the moment).

How is that for objective assessment?

blabla, if ios also would have widgets then apple fans wouldnt say that widgets su*ks and it is battery killer.... I remember when apple fans were shouting that 3.5" is the best screen size and bigger screen is only for noobs... After apple introduced iphone with 4" screen, apple fans started to claim that bigger screen is a nice feature.... /facepalm

Galitto why even bother aguing with these folks? They wake up every morning to prowl for apple/iOS/iPhone articles, just to sit there and post insults to make each other laugh out loud, and give thumb ups. Dude just enjoy iOS like I do, and let the ones who hate on apple do just that. U cannot win this pointless battle, jus let em hate, insult, and call us iOS users all the names they want. Is apple losing sleep over this? No. Am I losing sleep over this? No are u losing sleep over this???

Lack of support,development,apps and the fact Nokia dropped it. Point been Nokia killed an OS that was more advanced then iOS so your comment is BS on a high level

iOS isn't the most advanced you talk crap there. Its a glorified app launcher with too many restrictions.how can a locked down app launcher be the most advanced?

Mxyzptlk. Dude why even bother arguing? iOS rocks, we iOS users know what we like and want n an OS. I love the new features of iOS 6, look forward to the next update. My iPhone 5 has no issues that I can speak of, and if I did or develops some then oh well, a software update will fix it.

Haha no mate I call the arrogant apple Trolls on there bs. You cant announce that iOS Is the most advanced and not back it up. And dont try acting the voice of reason, many apple trolls dis every other os and person.

Notice i say apple trolls and not users , uses are fine but its the trolls that ruin this site with there blind loyalty. Like that gallitking guy darkkjedi and him. above.

And i doubt you read my comments as i didnt dis iOS i stated facts of what it is

Do u see this OS debacle starting to spill over into real life, and not just the Internet? This level of prejudice from android and iOS users is crazy. Tension like this is usually reserved for race, or religion. I've been reading over a lot of people's posts, and I'm shocked at the level of direspect, prejudice, and threats that I see. I hope I don't start seeing people assaulted, or physically harassed due to carrying an iPhone, or gs3. What r your thoughts on this issue?

defending software that's dead (Symbian) as more advanced, yet no one wants it...is not very credible on your part. the number of arrogant, narrow-minded android fans that litter this site vastly out number those who are fans of iOS. if you have valid reasons for liking iOS...then you get termed a "troll" for speaking out about why you don't care for android. you show me five single derogatory comments made on this site from an iOS fan against android & i'll show you 20 different articles related to Apple that android fans who can't help themselves from sharing their negative opinions. there's constructive criticism & there is being an asshole. unfortunately, most of the android community on this forum falls under assholes. you don't like iOS, i get it...shut the hell up & move on.

No one wants it, your generalising as many would want symbian and to have it continue. Not credible, this is a tech site and although symbian has been announced dead its still around and still an extremely functional OS but you think as im not praising iOS im a hater.

No he is a troll, and he didnt speak with any Common sense h stated it was the most advanced and i wanted his reasons then you pretend peacemakers come in acting like its a big attack on apple. And worse you class attack the android users as again you class anyone that aint praising apple as a fandroid how simple minded are you

Ohh and dont worry you will have you apple troll cheerleaders supporting you on your arrogant little quest as you make it Look like all iOS users are victims on this site when fact is if the stopped talking absolute bs then they wouldnt be called on it.

Ohh and i wont shut up, but suggest you and your apple trolls do as you add nothing to the site

can you please explain to us how and why it is the most advanced mobile os in the world? if you can't do that it means you just copy paste those words in apple website. if it is advanced why is it some of it's features and functionality are also being used in android for a long time now. advanced means they created something that other competitors still hasn't created it. that's my thoughts after reading your comment.

No innovate means they created something no one else is using. Advanced means to further their platform, which they've done. Apples OS approach isn't better, or worse than android, windows etc. it's just different. Their marketing model is to the mainstream user not specifically to the techie crowd. Think Corvette and Camry, both r great cars but they cater to totally different markets. One does more, but requires a lot more to keep it running smoothly. One does a little less ei widgets live wall papers, but requires less to keep it running smoothly. Both r top notch os's though to their users. I love both to b honest, but iOS is my Camry (my daily driver). I guess I'm a blind stupid ish##% now right?
