Apple testing iOS 6.0.1, bringing fixes for Wi-Fi, camera

updated 11:30 am EDT, Mon October 22, 2012

Updated said to be circulated to carriers

Apple is reportedly testing a maintenance update for iOS 6, which is expected to resolve several lingering bugs. Unnamed sources have told BGR that iOS 6.0.1 has been released to carriers for final tests ahead of a formal release, while the next intermediate release, iOS 6.1, is said to be in the beginning phases of internal testing and unlikely to arrive before the holidays.

The minor update is said to include fixes for a screen glitch related to the virtual keyboard, an issue that prevents the camera flash from firing, and a Passbook vulnerability that allowed information to be accessible from the lock screen. Other expected improvements focus on Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity.

Apple is widely expected to unveil the rumored iPad mini at a media event scheduled for tomorrow, with a launch expected as early as November 2, though the leaked information suggests the new iPads may not ship with iOS 6.1. The company has yet to confirm any details surrounding its iOS update schedule.

    Yes, they couldn't confirm details because the release itself is when testing begins!
