After four long weeks of iOS 6 use, Apple has started testing iOS 6.0.1 with different carrier partners in the US. This update will address some of the biggest complaints among iPhone 5 and iOS 6 users. BGR reportedly has a list of what the first iOS 6 update will fix.
According to BGR's reliable sources, Apple is aware of the iPhone 5 keyboard issues and iOS 6.0.1 will fix some of the most common problems. Such issues with iOS 6 which are to be addressed in this update include the bug that causes a horizontal-line to appear on the screen while using the keyboard. Also, the same iOS 6.0.1 will come as a cure for all iOS 6 users who have seen their camera flash failing to go off.
Furthermore, the first iOS 6 update will improve Wi-Fi support, and hopefully address the cellular data slips that were occurring. If you recall, we recently reported on this issue due to the vast number of cellular data usage complaints. iOS 6.0.1 will patch this bug, which has reached global scale for many iPhone 5 and iOS 6 users. Also, Apple is working hard to fix a bug that allowed access to Passbook pass details directly from the lock screen.
That's not all. While some of us hoped iOS 6.1 would arrive with the iPad mini's November 2 release, this probably isn’t going to happen according to BGR's sources. Apple has just started testing iOS 6.1, which makes its November 2 release fairly unlikely. However, there is a small chance that a separate build for iPad mini will be released and later, an additional release for iOS 6.1 for other iDevices. Considering past iOS releases however, this isn't likely to happen, so don't bet on it.
Let's just be glad that Apple is working hard to resolve the current issues in the iPhone with the iOS 6.0.1 update, and that we'll all be a little happier with our bugs gone. [Via BGR]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
