Apple have just released yet another iOS update – this time it is iOS 6.0.2 and is only for the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini. THe update is only a small one and addresses possible problems with Wi-Fi. The iPhone 5 release was a huge success for Apple, as was the iPad Mini, with both realising sales way beyond expectations. Clearly Apple do not want the issues with the Maps App to affect their success story, or go against them for future releases. This latest update suggest that Apple really are on top of the game and are keeping up to date with fixing bugs and glitches as quickly as possible. iOS 6.1 Beta 4 was released yesterday for registered developers and iOS 7 is being worked on now.
Normally, when Apple release an update it is across the board. It is highly unusual for them to release one that is only for a couple of devices. This suggests that the Wi-Fi problem only affects the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini so if you have either of these devices it is strongly suggested that you download the update without delay. On your device go to Settings > General > Software Update.
All other devices remain as they were on iOS 6.0.1 or lower. It does look as though the final iOS 6 release will be in January next year, paving the way for the next major iOS to grace us with its presence. iOS 6.1 could include updates to SIRI, Passbook and possibly even battery performance.
