  • Apple Reportedly Testing iOS 6.0.1; iOS 6.1 With Bug Fixes


    Apple has only recently released the iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, and their new iOS 6 mobile operating system, but a report by BGR reveals that Apple is already in the works of testing iOS 6.0.1, which will bring many bug fixes to iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. Some of the bugs are more common than others.

    According to the report, the iOS 6.0.1 update is expected to bring the below fixes and tweaks:
    • Fix issue with flickering lines appearing on the keyboard on iPhone 5 units
    • Fix issue with camera flash not going off when taking photographs
    • Fix issue with Passbook information being easily accessible through the lock screen
    • Fix issue with cellular data
    • Fix issue with exchange meetings being unintentionally cancelled
    • Improved Wi-Fi support
    • Addition of a consolidated iTunes Match cellular data switch


    Itís not exactly known when iOS 6.0.1 will be released to the public, although itís expected to be released within a few weeks. Currently, the developer portal of Apple's Web site is not offering a seed of iOS 6.0.1 for developers to test. The report also shares that iOS 6.1 is being worked on, however no details about iOS 6.1 have been leaked, so it's not known if it will include additional fixes and improvements or if it will add in new features for iOS 6 users.

    When released, users will be able to install the update through iTunes or through the built-in OTA (over the air) updating service on the iOS device. We will let everyone know when the update is available for the public to download and install.

      Hopefully this fixes the issue with Edge. I'm on my second phone and about to go for a third. My Iphone 4 was NEVER on Edge service, but my 5 is on it all the time. *banghead*

      There is a tetherered JB ( good idea to save them blobs ) and and untethered failbrake ( but you need a developers account to use it ) Unless some amazing breakthrough happens I cant see there being a public untethered JB for months ( if at all, it may well reach the next gen first! )
      BTW people should not be hard on team members getting paid work, these guys have familys to look after, and bills to pay too you know, there is no hostility within the scene about it, in fact quite the opposite!

      Comex: Iíve made a good amount of money through donations, which is mostly being used to help pay for college. JailbreakMe 2.0 was like $40,000; 3.0 was $15,000 (not quite sure why it decreased).

      Comex seems to have done OK out of 2 but a lot less well out of 3 which was a lot harder, Geohot did all right with his first JB but got a lot less after that. Most get nothing - those tat want to make money sell the ZDI

      Sad but true, luckily enough people want to help us aren't just in it for money.

      A jailbreak really isn't critical for me, but I would have no problem buying one if someone decided they were selling instead of requesting donations.

      Buying one? Anyone selling one is a con man. If you want to buy one then you will be ripped off.

      He didn't say that he wanted to buy one. He said he would pay for one if that's what it takes. I think almost everyone would gladly pay a little for a jailbreak if that's what was standing in the way. I know that I would.

      So here's a question, I downloaded and installed twitter, made sure I said don't push notification after downloading. I then deleted the app from my phone and some how in my notification center it shows the twitter option to right something.... iPhone 5 iOS 6. Very weird
      He's not part of the dev team but he does know a few of them. He was/is a moderator on the dev team blog.

      Twitter is integrated into iOS now, so even if you don't have the app installed it will still show up in settings.
