Apple releases iOS 6.0.1 to fix screen, camera flash and Exchange issues

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Apple on Thursday issued iOS 6.0.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, a minor update that addresses a number of small bugs, including a screen glitch that would appear with the onscreen keyboard and an issue that would cause the camera flash to not go off.

iOS 6.0.1 is now available to download through the system's Software Update, or through iTunes. The full list of changes included in the software, according to Apple, are:
  • 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.

iOS 6


Word of an iOS 6.0.1 update first surfaced last month when it was said the software was in testing with Apple's carrier partners for the iPhone. That same report claimed that iOS 6.1, a more significant update for the mobile operating system, will arrive after the holidays.

AppleInsider last month highlighted the iOS 6 keyboard graphical glitch, which occasionally shows screen distortion when entering an Apple ID password. The issue is only cosmetic and appears to be limited to the iPhone 5.

Issues related to Wi-Fi with iOS 6 were also widely reported since the launch of the software update in September. In particular, iPhone 4S and third-generation iPad users have said that they have experienced disabled Wi-Fi connectivity.

I have noticed a bug where I get multiple calender entries of single contacts-based events (e.g. birthdays, anniversaries) when I sync the calendar using GMail account settings and the same account's contacts using the CardDAV protocol. "Multiple" here means some 50 or 100 times (which makes that day rather crowded...).
The bug occurs only in iOS6 on my iPhone 5 and 3GS, but not in iOS5 on my iPad 1.

Anyone else have to download a separate 'iOS Updater" app first? Very strange behaviour.

That bug affected me and I used a me.com iCloud account and synced the regular way, directly through iCloud.

Other sites offering more detailed information explain that this download is required first in order to be able to do the actual update.  Not strange, required.

The article mentions that on iPhone 5, normal over the air updates are not working so why do you sound surprised that an App download required. It's pretty smart of Apple to come up with a work around!

I didn't say it was strange, I just agreed that I have the same app.

No, "smart" would have been properly working software that didn't require a separate new program to fix a bug.

Do you use MagicJack?

The default settings will automatically charge your credit card each year for service renewal. You will not be notified or warned in anyway. You can turn auto renewal off.

I'm tripping on the icon inside the Settings Update area and the gears in the icon start turning when the update starts downloading.  TOTALLY COOL!

Just updated OTA.. very quick to download and install. Loved the spinning gears. From the notes, it fixes the major gripes (of which I havent experienced any). 

Safari seems snappier. 

post #15 of 44

I have the app, but now I get the "Unable to Check for update" error.

post #16 of 44
I updated with iTunes and avoided the new app.

I was going to ask if battery life was improved, but as long as Safari has teh snappies then that's all that's important.

   Apple develops an improved programming language.  Google copied Java.  Everything you need to know, right there.

Does this mean we won't be able to cancel meetings as an attendee anymore?  1wink.gif

The iOS installer app disappears once it is complete.

The moving gears is a nice touch, but t-minus 3...2...1... until someone complains that it taxes battery life. :)

post #24 of 44

You mean it hasn't always? It's likely the crashiest app on me phone.

This update breaks the Facebook app - cannot load after updating... :-(

The update also seems to break the Facebook app. Crashes every time I open it now.

My facebook app has been running fine since the update

Damn.

Now you will all have to start speaking to people in the real world.

You're complaining about the battery being affected when the G*D D*** bottom left gear is spinning in the wrong direction?! It should be spinning counter clockwise from being pushed by the larger center gear!!!

Raaaaaaaaaahhhhhh

How could this happen!!?? This isn't the apple I used to know!!

Now when are we going to get an update for this??

I don't now if this is from Scott being fired or under his watch but one thing is for certain . . This would have NEVER HAPPENED UNDER STEVE'S WATCH!!!'

Get it? Steve's watch....gears...clockwise....turning...

Ahh forget it.

My FB app was crashing immediately prior to updating.

Took <2 mins OTA.

 

Now unable to update OTA on the wife's iP4 and iTunes suggesting a 2hr download!

(60mbps broadband).

 

Is there a server problem, or has the whole world updated simultaneously?!!

I'd be fine with the update taxing the battery while it instals as long as it actually fixes the battery life problems once it is. I don't see battery fixes listed as one of its features though. 1frown.gif
