It was initially thought to be released when Apple announced the new iPad Mini, but instead, they decided released the first update to iOS 6, 6.0.1 today, a day before the new iPad and iPad Mini go on sale. The new update fixes a slew of bugs like one that prevented apps from updating over the air and probably the most discerning, the graphical line glitches that showed up on the display when users entered their Apple ID information while in the App Store.
Another plus of 6.0.1, is the improved reliability of the iPhone 5 and the new iPod Touch when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wifi networks, I can personally say that this issue plagued me quite a bit, so it’s nice to see it fixed.
There are a bunch of other fixes in there as well, for a full breakdown check out the list below.
