iOS 6.0.1 update live, problems failed to fix?

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.

Since updated my iPhone to iOS 6.0.1 I have lost the ability to connect to cellular towers. No Service to Searching. I went by my AT&T Store this morning and received a new SIM card, however that did not fix the issue. This update has bricked my iPhone on the Cellular Side. Apple needs to fix this asap…

I am now having a bad connection when I call someone. Good connection for a minute or two then all I hear is static and garbled voices………How can I revert back to iOS 6?

I am BEYOND pissed off. Apple fans really drink the kool aid don’t they? The last time I updated my Ipod Touch to the Ios 6, it deleted all my apps and god knows what else. This time i updated and my Ipod Touch is now in Recovery Mode and I CANNOT get it out of it. Itunes gets 3/4 way through downloading the software, and then the ipod disconnects and I have to start all over again. This has RUINED my ipod touch. How can Apple release updates that destroy their products and GET AWAY WITH IT???? Geez I… Read more »

I updated just barely, and then tried to connect via Bluetooth to my wireless keyboard, and it won’t connect. It detects the keyboard but is unable to connect. The keyboard has a flashing green light.

Christopher Duran

I unplugged my ipad and it has let me restore now. Unplug turn device on and off you maybe ok ? Apple must be busy as hell with customer complaints atm.

Christopher Duran

Lost basically all my SIM contacts — tried taking out SIM & putting back in — in text screen, it’s just a list of #’s — no names. I synced up my FB/Yahoo/SIM contacts into one — this update just singlehandedly destroyed all that work. PISSED!

Updated to ios 6.0.1 on Friday and could not connect to my home WiFi. In the end to resolve this I plugged my iphone 5 into itunes and did a full restore.
Then I set up my iphone as a new phone (DO NOT RESTORE BACKUP). So far so good. My WiFi has been connected fine since. Its early days but will keep monitoring it. Will update if I have any issues (Like when I try to connect to my work WiFi tomorrow)!
Hope this helps someone!

Thanks God… worked find on my iphones and my iPad 2… Three of them successfully connected to my office’s wifi. But i haven’t try to connect them to other wifi… And no SIM card problem.

There’s something weird on my iPad 2. I couldn’t add books (pdf) to iBooks directly from iTunes. But it’s okay when I add books from Dropbox although it took sooooooooo long to open them using iBooks.

Have a nice weekend…

Did iOS 6.0.1 update and apps were not able to be deleted. So had to do restore and lost over a month’s worth of pics, texts, calendar. Now I can’t play music at all. Even typing this, you type a letter and you don’t see it until you move on to the next letter or word. Strange things going on with phone.

My old iPhone 3GS and iPad before I updated iOS was working great on our Wifi. Massive Wifi issues with my new iPhone 5 and iPad even after this update. All other devices in the house connect okay, just the Apple devices have issues. Seriously losing faith in Apple.

hi
i recently updated my 4s to ios6 and my wifi greyed out. i have been assured by the apple customer care in india that all will be well after the v6.0.1 update. unfortunately, the problem persists and i have not got any support from the apple team. how i wish i bought a galaxy s3 instead of apple 4s.

Cliff Woodman

I still have no wifi (greyed out). Fine on 5.1.1 why don’t Apple allow signing of the 5.1.1 blobs so we can at least downgrade until they sort their s*** out !

Jim

Seriously, at work we have 29 Apple devices on 6.0.1 now that cannot access our wireless infrastructure and a remaining 15 that were told not to upgrade from 5.01/5.1.1 that have absolutely no problems with our WiFi at all. Please Apple…

I am simply “unable to update” the iPad mini. It says it’s not plugged in…which it is, directly into the MacMini, no hub in between. Frustrating.

Updated two iPhones today (work and personal). I have a dead zone where I work. When I need to make a call, I go outside. I used to wait about 15 to 20 seconds to go from ‘No Service’ to full bars signal. After update I’ve have to reboot to get signal as the ‘No Service’ does not go away (waited over 5 minutes). This happens on both phones now.

Guess I just lucky, but 6.0.1 update looks working good for my iPhone 5 and iPad 3 – they still can connect to wi-fi and 3G and no other side effects so far… may be I will discover them tomorrow though =)

Updated to ios 6.0.1 last night. I can connect to 3g network on ATT and connect to WIFI networks just fine, however NO data transmits. SMS texts and phone calls work fine, but data has ceased to transmit on my phone. Upgrading from IOS5 was the worst decision.

I have turned my phone on/off. I have reset all network connections in the settings menu and toggled cellular data on/off but it still fails to send/receive data. I will restore my phone tonight and hopefully that fixes it.

This update made my wi-fi issues even worse!!! I am already on my 3rd 1Phone 5 and I have not been able to consistently use wi-fi on ANY of them. They talked me into waiting for this update, which I did, and now I can’t stay connected for even a minute! Apple, you SUCK!!!

I’m still having issues with the camera flash not going off. Don’t really want to have to restore my phone but might have to AGAIN. Never had a problem with any of my iPhones before iOS6 🙁 Still an overal fan though.

Connection to exchange mail server failed after updated to iOS 6.0.1. I deleted the exchange account and re-setup the account again. Same problem. Worst part, now I lost all my contact because I can’t syn with the exchange server.

You still have to flip airplane mode off and back on again when wifi drops out. Very irritating. Apple, your beginning to piss me off.

Still having Facetime (and Tango) issues on wife where it drops out after a few seconds and says ‘Reconnecting’ – there were NO issues on iOS 5 and this only became a problem after the iOS 6 update – works fine over 3G but terrible on WiFi – same issues exist with my 4S and iPad 3rd Gen. You would have thought 6.0.1 would have fixed this as it is a problem worldwide, well it didn’t – way to go Apple!

I get a “unable to connect to network” error when trying to connect to wifi.
All other devices in the house (non-apple) work fine. I have reset
router and network settings on the phone, told phone to “forget this
connection” and set it back up again…nothing. I did not have the
original wifi issues when 6 came out, now I have them with 6.0.1. *sigh*
