After we dealt with no more than 5 beta versions so far, the well-awaited iOS 6.1 is finally released to the public. You can download iOS 6.1 from our direct download links at the end of the article. Until now, only developers were able to test iOS 6.1 in a beta version, but since not everybody was willing to pay for a member subscription, the iOS 6.1 final is more than welcomed. Now, every user owning an older or a newer device is able to upgrade it to the latest firmware.
The new and final version of the operating system brings several minor improvements concerning various fields. It does not bring us major improvements, as some of you might expect, but it is still something new. So, let me show you some of the most important changes and improvements, which I am sure that will please at least some of you. For the start, we will have a set up wizard to confirm our Apple ID for iMessage and FaceTime service and new improvements regarding the Passbook service, which will include a new sample card. What will please many people is the “Voice Dial Only” feature. In this way, you will not need to use Siri in order to initiate a phone call. I mean, if you do not use the personal assistant, you will still be able to perform voice dial calls.
I am sure that you all noticed the bug that prevented you to download any song or podcast from iTunes using your cellular data connection. Now, with the new improved iOS 6.1, you will be able to download any song you want from iTunes. In the same time, iTunes Match subscribers will be able to download individual songs form iCloud. I know that it was not such a big issue, but some of you will really appreciate it. However, one of the most important things regarding this update is the LTE support. Now, users have LTE support for many more carriers worldwide. If you ask me, this is a huge thing.
On the other hand, Siri also received certain improvements and changes. Now, you can purchase movie tickets through Fandango service using the voice recognition assistant, but this thing is only available in US. I know that some of you might expected some extraordinary improvements, but in fact, iOS 6.1 was designed to fix and solve all those problems and bugs reported by users and developers in the original iOS 6 release.
