Apple Releases iOS 6.0.1 to Address Keyboard, Camera Flash Issues

Apple has released iOS 6.0.1 to fix a few bugs and issues that have plagued iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch users, including that strange keyboard graphics glitch and the-flash-that-would-not-go-off-even-when-it’s-dark when using the built-in Camera app.

Here’s the full list of what’s new 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

I’ve seen several reports of higher-than-expected cellular data usage under iOS 6 over at the MacRumors forums and though I haven’t experienced this myself it seems to be a serious issue, especially for those with small data plans. Hopefully this update fixes this issue.

Didn’t fixed the crashes in my iPhone 4. I’m so sick of it…. Since i updated to iOs 6 it just keep crashing on every app.

I installed iOS6 onto my iPhone 4 before getting my iPhone 5, and had no issues you’re describing with it crashing my iPhone. It ran fine. Have you jailbroken your iPhone 4 possibly?

Since I have updated the software on my iPhone 4s my apps are playing the ‘I don’t wanna work game too’. I don’t know how to jailbreak, or do anything fancy with my iphone except phone, text and play games. It’s extremely frustrating when you think you’re about to get a game of WWF and after the load page, you’re taken straight back to your phone’s home page :(

Sad times.


I agree with Mr Victor. I’m facing the same issue. Every apps crash after I update the iOS to 6.0. Having lots of problem. Therefore I had bought a Samsung Note II now. Seems Samsung runs smoother than iPhone.


@Yogen: Yea, right. You ditched your iPhone for a Samsung. How much does Samsung pay you?
