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.
