Apple has today pushed out the first minor bugfix to their recently released iOS 6 mobile operating system. The bugfix resolves several issues with the OS including, the camera flash not going off in some cases, a bug where the iPhone may not use the mobile network and improved the reliability of the iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th gen) WPA2-encrypted Wi-Fi networks. For the full list, see below. It is interesting to note that iPhone 5 users must download an “updater” package via Software Update in order to download iOS 6.0.1 as updating the firmware over the air on the iPhone 5 does not work prior to this update.
iOS 6.0.1 Changelog
- 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 mobile network in some instances
- Consolidated the Use Mobile Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug that sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass deetails from lock screen
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings.
In addition to this, iOS 6.1 has also been released to developers today. I haven’t got access to a changelog yet as I am not enrolled in the iOS Developer Program, but as soon as I have I will update this story. Stay tuned!
