Apple to release iOS 6.0.1 update with major bug fixes within weeks

The company is also believed to be working on iOS 6.1 for release in new year

Apple is testing iOS 6.0.1, which includes a fix for the keyboard bug, and resolves a camera flash issue, according to reports.

BGR reports that a 'reliable Apple source' has said that Apple's iOS 6.0.1 is being tested with different carriers in the US.

Among the changes that are expected to arrive with the update, BGR's report notes that it should "fix the horizontal lines bug on the screen when the keyboard or app folder is open, and it will also fix a problem with the camera's flash not going off."

BGR also says that Apple's iOS 6 update will improve WiFi support, fix some cellular data issues, add a consolidated cellular switch for iTunes Match, fix Passbook security bug, and fix the bug that caused Exchange meetings to be cancelled.

Apple has also begun working on iOS 6.1, says the source, indicating that the iPad mini won't have the larger update to its operating system when it launches on Friday.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
