Apple Releases iOS 6.0.1

Version 6.0.1 fixes several issues, including display problems that showed horizontal lines across the keyboard, a bug that caused the camera's flash to be unreliable and not go off occasionally, as well as a flaw that prevented iPhone 5 users from installing software updates via Wi-Fi connections.

Additionally, Apple also consolidated the "Use Cellular Data" switch in iTunes Match, and fixed the Passcode Lock bug. Given the number of problems of iOS 6, the release of 6.0.1 shortly after the launch of the OS is not surprising. However, 6.0.1 appears to have some problems as well. Several users are reporting that iOS 6.0.1 does not play well with the Facebook app and calls for an updated version of this application.

Apple also released iOS 6.1 beta to developers. Build number 10B5095f comes with subtle changes to the Safari browser, enhancements for Passbook as well as the ability to integrate Apple's new Maps service in third-party apps.

    Yeah, if I am an App developer that is exactly a feature I want, integrate the Apple maps into my new App. :-)

    The difference being that windows will bug you over and over and over again until it's updated and then it takes like an hour to update them, and there's about 9 million of them at once, and on top of that once they're installed it will continue with pop ups that automatically restart your machine unless you click remind me again in x hours.

    On ios you go to a menu to check for updates and if you don't want it you don't click install, and then you never again hear about it ever, and if you do it takes about 5 minutes to install and only happens once a month.

    What are you talking about? It doesen't take hours to update windows, and it's not millions of them every month. Sure, there's a lot if you do a fresh install without any of the service-packs, but I haven't installed an update for w7 in months o.O There are many different perimeters you can set aswell, from autoupdate, confirm to update and completely manual. And you can choose which of the updates you want to install.

    Keep in mind, an iOS update happens on flash memory. Most Windows computers sill use hard drives. Windows computers with SSD memory tend to update VERY quickly...
