iOS 6.0.1 Direct Download Links

iOS 6.0.1 IPSW

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.

These ipsw files are hosted by Apple, right-click on each link and choose “Save As”, the file extension should be .ipsw only.

Again, if you don’t have prior experience using IPSW for updating iOS, it’s best to go the automated routes of Over The Air or through iTunes. You can read more about using firmware files here.

    I have iTunes 11.0.1 and I’m d/l the file to update an iPod touch 4th gen. I’m not sure after I’ve finished the d/l what to do next. Do I simply double click the file or do I need to do something else?

    I cannot locate the IPSW file when I download the ipad mini restore file. I’m usually pretty good at this stuff. What simple step am I missing? Thank you!

    • Nick says:

      the IPSW file is saved as a zip file if you use Windows.
      Just right click on the file to rename it, replace .zip with .ipsw
      That will do it.

    For any Australian (and possibly other non-US residents), counterintuitively we require the iPhone 5 CDMA (Verizon/Sprint) firmware, not the iPhone 5 GSM (ATT) firmware.

    • Martin Butler says:

      Greg who is your carrier? I would assume Telstra use ATT i.e. GSM and Optus use Sprint CDMA i.e. require different files, if they are labelled correctly.
