Apple has released a new version of its iOS 6 software that is designed to improve performance and remove persistent bugs in its iPhone, iPad, and iPhone touch devices. The update provides many bug fixes, but iPhone 5 owners will first need to download a software installer because the phone has a bug that prevents Apple from delivering an over-the-air update to fix other problems. 9to5Mac has posted instructions for installing the update. The following errors are reportedly fixed in iOS 6.0.1:
- 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 cellular network in some instances
- Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
