Apple releases iOS 6.0.1 with bug fixes

Posted by: Brett

Apple has released iOS 6.0.1 for all iOS 6-supported devices, meaning the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, and 5, as well as the 4th-and 5th-generation iPod touch models. The update brings with it a bunch of bug fixes, most of which we heard about last week thanks to BGR.

Due to the fact that the iPhone 5 shipped with a bug which disallowed it from updating over-the-air normal through Settings, iPhone 5 users will have to download a separate updater included by Apple with the OTA file. In the picture above, you can see you’ll be prompted to download and install an updater to prepare the iPhone for the update. This is a one time thing and iOS 6.0.1 fixes said bug. All other devices will be able to update normally over-the-air.
