iOS 6.0.1 Direct Download Links
The iOS 6.0.1 update provides some invaluable bug fixes, and every iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch user should update to take advantage of them. The vast majority of users are best served updating directly on their iOS device by using OTA update, found in Settings > General > Software Update. Connecting an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iTunes will also trigger the automatic update procedure. Nonetheless, some advanced users prefer upgrading directly by using IPSW firmware files, and those downloads can be found here.
