Apple releases iOS 6.0.1 with over-the-air update tool
A report from Boy Genius Report late last month suggested Apple had iOS 6.0.1 in testing phases withall of the above fixes, with mention that the company was also at work on a more full-featured release of 6.1 for after the holidays.As a frame of reference, it took Apple a little under a month to release iOS 5.0.1 following the release of iOS 5 last October. The release brought mostly bug and security fixes, though also added multitasking gestures for original iPad users. The jump to iOS 5.1, which reworked the camera application on the iPad, and increased the size limit for over-the-air app downloads, came about four months later.According to Apple, iOS 6 adds "over 200 new features" to iOS 5. Chief among them is Apple's own maps application, changes to Siri that add more information about movies, restaurants, and sports scores, as well as deep integration with Facebook.
