Apple release iOS 6.0.1

Back in September, it was in fact iOS 6 that went wild a couple of days prior to the iPhone 5’s release. There were issues reported with the OS the big one being the mapping issues. Well now, iOS 6.0.1 has arrived and while it’s not a major update, mapping issues still withstanding, the update fixes a number of issues around cell data and W-Fi.


List of included fixes in iOS 6.0.1. Thanks to forum member Scorbing for the image.

One of the other issues that users discovered was the OS' inability to switch between available and connected Wi-Fi networks and cellular data, resulting in users receiving massive bills from their carriers.

The only mention of Wi-Fi issues being resolved is the improved reliability of the iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks. Apple may have said they would be fixing the issue in the 6.0.1 update, but even Apple’s KB page around the 6.0.1 update doesn’t give much detailed information about what issues the update actually resolves. So hopefully this is

If anyone, who suffered from the cell/Wi-Fi data issue in the first instance, has updated to iOS 6.0.1, we’d love to hear if it’s fixed the problem, or if it has caused other services to break on you.

Thanks to forum member BoDEAN for the tip!

Mapping issues are being fixed remotely every day for the most part of what's worrying users. I don't know why it has been mentioned this way in the headline. Ahhh yes, unprofessional journalism.

Does this fix AT&T "4G" logo? It should read "3G" but says "4G"

iPhone 5 is 4G LTE and the AT&T iPhone 4S is HSPA+ which is 4G and noticeable faster speeds than the Verizon iPhone 4S and Sprint iPhone 4S. Which phone do you have an issue with now?

Verizon officials say that their iPhone customers should get this update 'in the coming months', although there will be a futher delay for owners of the white version. The iOS 7 rollout will be much more complex and occur sometime after 2030.

The part where iPhone 5 users had to download an updater to allow the updater to update?

iPhone 5 doesn't account for the majority of iOS devices. The best part of this update is it is an update.

Where is the Xzibt meme when you need one.

I thought exactly that when I read the first fix. You need to update to be able to update.
