Apple outs iOS 6.0.1, comes with fixes for Keyboard, Wi-Fi, OTA updating

Apple pushes out iOS 6.0.1 update, fixes various bugs, including OTA bug for iPhone 5

Apple has just released iOS 6.0.1 ahead of the iPad mini being delivered to houses. The new version of the wildly popular mobile operating system brings numerous bug fixes that were discovered in iOS6. The update is available OTA, even for iPhone 5 users, though you'll have to go through an extra step to be able to grab the update OTA.


The fixes address issues such as the horizontal lines that appeared on the keyboard occasionally, a camera flash issue, issues with Wi-Fi when connected to a secure network, fixes for some cellular network issues, and a bug that prevents the iPhone 5 from updating over-the-air.

For iPhone 5 users to update over-the-air, they first have to download an updated updater. This will then allow them to pull down the 69MB update to their devices wirelessly. Grab the update, fix the bugs on your device, and let us know what you think of it in the comments. I'm personally hoping the device feels snappier.
