Release of iOS 6.1

(see below)

Apple released iOS 6.1 as an OTA (Over The Air) update.
That means you can install this update by downloading it directly from your device and do not need iTunes. Go to Settings – General – Software Update and you will see the announcement screen.


Tap on ‘Update’ to start the download and installation procedure.

After finishing the download go through the following 8 steps …



Notes …

Apple provides the following informations

  • LTE support for more carriers
  • Purchase movie tickets through Fandango with Siri (US only)
  • iTunes Match subscribers can now download individual songs from iCloud
  • New button to reset Advertising Identifier

And …

On the privacy side, the update also adds an option to reset Apple’s advertising identifier option, the “non-permanent, non-personal, device identifier” feature added as part of iOS 6.


Ad Tracking
iOS 6 introduces the Advertising Identifier, a non-permanent, non-personal, device identifier, that apps will use to give you more control over advertisers’ ability to use tracking methods. You can reset a device’s Advertising Identifier at any time. And, if you choose to limit ad tracking, apps are not permitted to use the Advertising Identifier to serve you targeted ads. In the future all apps will be required to use the Advertising Identifier. However, until then you may still receive targeted ads.

Other, minor changes in iOS 6.1 include new boarding pass behavior in Apple’s Passbook software, tweaks to Safari, reworked music playback controls from the lock screen, and a back-end change in Apple’s mapping software.

All the above mentioned features are of no importance for me and I think that’s the case for many other users. So let’s see which bugs of former versions are fixed.

Sorry, Apple.

What about the WiFi problem?
What about attachments for Apple Mail?
What about …?

iOS 6.0.1 already should fix the problem!

Toggled Airplane Mode off and on

Unable to connect to work wifi, but Mac and Ipads connect flawlessly.
I am able to connect to my home wifi after I disabled all security on my network.
Anything else I can do to get my iphone issue resolved (besides praying?)?

Pray harder!

APPLE Why do we have to lower our router security to allow IOS6 to connect?
Please step up, take responsibility and clean up the mess you’ve created.
Let us rollback to Ios5 until you get this sorted or put out an update for IOS6 that covers the iPad2.
Apple Test your updates before you push them onto us.

These comments are subjective but the intention seems to be clear.
As I have the same WiFi problem with my iPhone 4S using an Apple Airport Extreme router in the office let me check it out tomorrow. I hope the bug is fixed.
