While it introduced a stack of great new features, iOS 6 also brought a few bugs to our iOS devices this summer. Users have reported problems with Wi-Fi, iPhone 5 display glitches, and more. But Apple could be preparing to fix those before it starts its holiday celebrations.
According to one report, the Cupertino company is currently testing iOS 6.0.1 for a release within the coming weeks, while iOS 6.1 will arrive after the holidays.
Boy Genius Report cites a “reliable” source who claims Apple has now begin its testing of iOS 6.0.1 with different carriers partners in the United States.
In addition to fixing the iPhone 5’s screen glitch, which displays horizontal lines across the display at random, the update is expected to fix a problem that prevents the camera flash from going off, improve Wi-Fi support, and fix a problem plaguing cellular data in some cases.
It will also add a consolidated data switch for iTunes Match, fix a bug that allowed access to Passbook pass details from the lock screen, and quash a bug that caused Exchange meetings to be cancelled unexpectedly for the entire invite group, according to the report.
In addition to this, Apple is said to be testing iOS 6.1, too. It’s “extremely unlikely” it will ship with the new iPad mini next month, the report notes, but is expected to arrive after the holidays instead.
Registered developers are yet to see any beta releases for these updates.
