Apple pushes iOS 6.0.1 update
Apple has released the first update to iOS 6 which is available for a free download to iDevices.
The update improves upon glitches pertaining to Wi-Fi and cellular data connections as well as an issue pertaining to Passbook security, whereby Passbook details were unexpectedly being accessible from the lock screen. It also fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings that earlier caused unexpected cancellations for the entire calendar invite group, when just one user declined an invite.
Another noticeable bug fix is the one that caused strange static and horizontal lines being displayed across the keyboard. Other fixes include dealing with camera flash issues, adding control for iTunes Match syncing via 3G/4G data connections and improving reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks.
