Apple Testing iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.1 To Roll Out After Holiday Season

According to the recent report by BGR, Apple has begun testing iOS 6.0.1 with different carrier partners in the U.S. Previously credible Apple sources claim to have access to a general list of what the first iOS 6 update will entail. Two major improvements include the horizontal lines bug fix, screen when the keyboard or app folder is open and the solution to the camera flash problem of not going off.

Moreover, the iOS 6.0.1 update will expand Wi-Fi support, fix cellular data problems (of not been functional in some cases), fix a bug that allowed access to Passbook pass details from the lock screen, bring consolidated cellular data switch for iTunes Match and at last, finally fix the bug that caused Exchange meetings to be cancelled without prior notice for the entire calendar invite group.

On top of the iOS 6.0.1 rumors, the sources also claim that iOS 6.1 testing has only now just begun by Apple, so it gets unlikely that the new iPad Mini, expected to arrive in less than a week, will ship with the iOS 6.1. However, there’s a possibility of it, if the there is a separate build just for the new iPad. However, the rest of the iDevices seem to get the iOS 6.1 update much later.

Stay tuned, we’ll come back with the news as soon as the pending details arrive.
