We’ve just installed the Apple iOS 6.0.1 update after the download going live within the last couple of hours, which had been on our iPhone 5 model used to review certain cases, apps, etc. The iOS 6.0.1 software update is also available for other devices such as the iPad touch 5G, although we haven’t noticed any major changes to Apple maps and expect reported problems to still be there at the time of writing.
If you are installing the iOS 6.0.1 update on iPhone 5 then you’ll notice an “updater for iPhone 5” needing a download first, which as seen in the image above is sized at 69.7MB. This updater will fix a bug that has prevented the new iPhone 5 from installing OTA, so we installed it and everything worked great after as expected.
After downloading the new iOS update enabler the application notices there’s some new software, and asks if you want to install the iOS 6.0.1 update. It is worth pointing out that you will need a certain amount of battery life, which might mean you need to plug your iPhone/iOS device into a power outlet.
We have included the iOS 6.0.1 update notes below that show the bug fixes and other changes, so take a look at the full list to see if any problem you have has now been fixed. The fixes include an issue solved that caused the camera flash to fail sometimes, the horizontal lines seen sometimes on the keyboard should be gone, and a few cellular network issues have also been resolved.
Do you still have problems after installing the iOS 6.0.1 update, or has your device experienced issues since installing this new software? See the full list of fixes above and share a comment below if you’re experiencing any problems. It is worth noting that the iPhone 5 jailbreak will be demanded even more now this update has landed, which is due to some people believing that certain hackers were waiting for the first iOS 6 update before a jailbreak would arrive.
