Apple today released an update to iOS 6.0.1, a little over a week after rumors about the update began swirling. As previous reports claimed, the update includes a for the that would cause horizontal lines to appear on the keyboard and an improvement to the reliability of the iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod touch when connected to an encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi network. There are several other bug fixes and tweaks included as well:

  • 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 meeting.

Interestingly, iPhone 5 owners must first download an "Updater for iPhone 5" that fixes a bug that prevents the new handset from installing updates over the air. Installing the iOS Updater will allow users to download the iOS 6.0.1 update. This iOS 6.0.1 update isn't a huge one, but it does include quite a few bug fixes that several users will be glad to see, especially for things like lines on the keyboard and a inconsistent camera flash. If you're rocking an iOS 6-compatible device (iPhone 3GS-iPhone 5, 4th and 5th generation iPod touch, iPad 2 and new iPad), head into Settings > General > Software Update and get to downloading!
