You all know that the well-awaited iOS 6 released a few months ago needs some bug fixes and improvements. Many users suggested various problems regarding the cellular data, mapping service, keyboards and Passbook. For these problems, the Apple team just released the iOS 6.0.1 version. This version of the famous iOS 6 comes as an improvement for many problems, for those that I mentioned earlier and more. The new iOS 6.0.1 brings improvements, changes and bug fixes for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th generation. For those of you who own an iPhone 5, you need to download and install an” Updater” before you will be able to perform the upgrade.
Therefore, here is what is new on the iOS 6.0.1 firmware released by Apple as a solution for some problems.
– It fixes a bug that prevented iPhone 5 from installing various software programs wirelessly.
-This version solves an issue regarding the cellular data usage in particular moments on iPhone 5 devices. I am sure that many of you are familiar with the cellular data problem. Some users accused iPhone of using cellular data when they were connected to a wireless network, a thing that brought higher phone bills.
-Since some users complained about problems with the wireless network when using their iPhone 5 or iPod Touch 5th generation, now, Apple increased reliability of these two devices in what concerns the connection to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks.
– Another notable problem that people suggested is the issue with the horizontal lines across the keyboard. Apparently, this new version solves this problem as well.
– Since some people suggested the fact that they cannot access their Passbook details from the Lock Screen, this issue was taken into consideration as well and now it is solved.
– The last problem I want to mention is the camera flash problem, which seems to remain on after use. Now, with the iOS 6.0.1, users do not encounter this problem anymore.
Apparently, the iOS 6.0.1 did not bring so many new features and improvements, only minor bug fixes and changes, but as long as we have something new, I think that it is a good thing for all of us. If you really want to upgrade your firmware to iOS 6.0.1, you can do it freely and without worrying about your former jailbroken device. Developers already released a jailbreak tool that deals with this new iOS firmware. Redsnow is available for download and it performs and tethered jailbreak on all A4-based devices running on iOS 6.0.1.
