Apple Testing iOS 6.0.1 with Fixes for Keyboard Screen Glitch, Camera Flash Issues, and More

BGR reports that Apple has begun carrier testing of iOS 6.0.1, the first bug fix update to iOS 6 since its release just over a month ago. According to the report, iOS 6.0.1 addresses several issues including a visual glitch most commonly seen on the iPhone keyboard when entering an account password in the App Store.
iOS 6.0.1 should fix the horizontal lines bug on the screen when the keyboard or app folder is open, and it will also fix a problem with the camera’s flash not going off.

In addition, the new software will improve Wi-Fi support, fix cellular data not working in some cases, add a consolidated cellular data switch for iTunes Match, fix a bug that allowed access to Passbook pass details from the lock screen, and also finally fix the bug that caused Exchange meetings to be unexpectedly cancelled for the entire calendar invite group.
Apple is reportedly also just beginning testing of iOS 6.1, with the timing of that testing suggesting that the update is not likely to arrive in time for any of the new hardware launches over the coming weeks. It is also unclear what changes are included in iOS 6.1.

Bring back google maps.
Remove the tacky colour changing status bars.
Fix or bring back the old app store.
Bring back the cloud icons and ability to delete individual songs in itunes match.
Remove the facebook & twitter icons from the share sheets. I'm not signed into either service in settings so I don't want to see the facebook & twitter breadcrums scattered around ios.


Imo iOS 6 is a weak update. Made a few things worse and unnecessary additions but with a handful of new decent features.

Yes I must agree 100% with this. And I too can't stand that stupid iPhone commercial where the guy says Cheeeeeeese. So damn annoying. Apple's commercials in general have gotten a lot worse and annoying.


Not nearly as annoying as your post...

Adding to the "what about" chorus, I hope they fix the issue where stuff like Podcasts start playing from paused after you end a phone call, even if they weren't playing before the phone call.


Scott Forstall should be fired for the Podcasts app alone.

But...but...iOS is already polished.
But...but...it's only lens flare.
But...but...I can see an extra row of apps.
But...but...I can now take a panoramic shot like other phones have been doing for years...and say the word cheeeeeeeeese as I do it.

iOS is a joke and going forward, unless there's a massive overhaul, it will continue to be a stale joke. WP8 and Android have will be the future.
