Apple Releases iOS 6.0.1 Fixes to iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch Users

Apple has just launched an update to iOS that is mainly a bug fix update, but appears to be a much-needed improvement for some glitches that users have been dealing with. iOS 6.0.1 is now available for downloading on all Apple mobile devices.

The update includes bug fixes for iPhone 5 users experiencing issues with installing software updates wirelessly. It also takes care of the horizontal line that sometimes shows up on the keyboard. Some users may have experienced issues with their device’s flash feature and iOS 6.0.1 fixes that.

The bug that caused an entire meeting to be canceled whenever one user declined an invite in Exchange has been fixed. Additionally, the Passcode Lock bug that let anyone see your personal Passbook information from the lock screen is fixed.

Apple also improved reliability for iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch users when connected to a WPA2 Wi-Fi network and a few other minor bug fixes that will make your life a little easier.

To update your iPad’s software, open your Settings app, tap “General” from the list, then tap “Software Update.” When you are at the software update screen, just tap the tab that reads, “Download and Install” and you should be good to go. Apple always recommends that you plug your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch into a power outlet before updating software in order to save your battery life. The update should only take about two minutes, so you will probably be fine to leave your device uncharged. If the download time is longer than five minutes, you should probably plug into a power source.
