Apple has just released their latest iOS firmware for their iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone range in the form of 6.0.1 Build 9B206. The latest update includes various different bug fixes, as 0.0.x updates often do – they rarely contain any new features. For example the strange flickering keyboard some iPhone 5 users have been experiencing seems to have been fixed, and the full changelog can be seen below:
- Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air
- Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
- Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
- Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
- Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
- Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is a resounding no. If you want to have the greatest chance for an untethered jailbreak for your new iPod Touch 5G, iPhone 5 or actually any device on iOS 6 – you’ll definitely want to hold off updating. Currently the dev team is working on a jailbreak for iOS 6, which means any device running iOS 6.0.1 will most likely be excluded from the ability to have a working untethered jailbreak.
We will of course keep you totally up to date on all the latest 6.0, 6.0.1 and 6.1 information; especially on their jailbreak status. If you’re not waiting for a jailbreak for your current device you can of course perform the over the air upgrade on your device, providing it’s not an iPhone 5 (see update list).
