iOS 6 update, 6.01, was released by Apple for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users. According to Apple, iOS 6.01 fixes small bugs and increases the stability of the devices running on Apple’s new operating system. iOS 6.01, though does not fix the glaringly large dent in Apple’s image; the maps application.
iOS 6.01 release was followed with a iOS 6.1 beta release to developers, which is reported to ease the process of reporting problems with Apple maps application. iOS 6.1 beta, as the name suggests, is in the development phase as Apple is striving to correct the maps application and other problems with iOS 6.
iOS 6.01 fixes a collection of problems Apple users are facing, like the failure of camera flash in some instances and the prevention of installing software updates over wireless on iPhone 5. iOS 6.01 fixes the horizontal lines appearing across the keyboard, makes the Wi-Fi connectivity over encrypted networks reliable, consolidates cellular network service and fixes the Passcode lock.
iOS 6 has been marred by the complaints about its functioning, and after Tim Cook’s apology for the maps application debacle, Apple must be looking to set things right with its users. iOS 6.01 is available through the option of system’s Software Update or can be installed via iTunes.
iOS 6.1 release might be the next update as the beta version is going through the developer phase routine. iOS 6.1 is reported to contain a novel Map Kit framework, which will assist the user in meticulously searching for map-based locations and places of interest.
