iOS 6.0.1 Released with Bug Fixes for iPhone Wi-Fi Problems, “No Service” Issue, etc
iOS 6.0.1 has been released, the software update includes several significant bug fixes for all iOS users, particularly those with iPhones. Curiously, those with iPhone 5 must first download a patch that allows OTA updates to work, prior to being able to download and install iOS 6.0.1.
The 6.0.1 update appears to address several prominent bugs, including an apparent resolution to the iPhone-specific “No Service” after signal loss and regain problem that impacts a fairly large number of users who are in areas with spotty cellular reception, a fix aimed at the iPhone 5 Wi-Fi speed issue, and a resolution to the peculiar keyboard glitch. The full list of bug fixes is shown below.
The iOS 6.0.1 software update can be downloaded through iTunes or Over-the-Air Update on the device itself by tapping on Settings > General > Software Update. Direct download links for iOS 6.0.1 IPSW firmware are also be available for those who wish to go the manual route.
