Apple Releases iOS 6.1.2 to Address Exchange Calendar Bug




In line with a report from last week, Apple has just released iOS 6.1.2. According to Apple, the update addresses a Microsoft Exchange bug but sources had indicated that it also addresses a lock screen passcode issue.

Quote:
Fixes and Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life.
The update arrives as Build 10B146 for most devices, with the exception of cellular-capable iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad models that are receiving Build 10B147.

Update: Users are reporting that the update does not in fact fix the passcode bug.

I had to accept a restore for my JB'n iPhone 4S 16GB. I'm restoring from a backup as I type. I'll let you know what happens to the Evasi0n.

As a side note, I've long experienced a large "Other" space of about 3.5 GB..when I restored, i did so as new...just to see...started as a new iPhone it has an "Other" space of about 0.5 GB. Now, I'm restoring to from backup...like I said. Naturally all my Other space should be back, but we'll see about evasion.

Your iPad wouldn't do the 6.1 update without being plugged in because it had less than 50% of battery left. I did the OTA update on my iPad without plugging in because it was fully charged.

Evasi0n and software not there, and Evasi0n does NOT work for me. I went to the website to get the latest version too.

Sounds promising once Evasi0n has been updated.

Tweet from planetbeing..

"Not yet able to test all devices, but it's looking good for 6.1.2. iPad mini wi-fi and iPhone 5 are still jailbreakable."

They will have to update it to work IF the holes arent patched. When 6.1.1 dropped they still needed to update it before it worked.

Not all updates are necessary for everyone. I do not have any exchange issues/battery life issues with mine. I have no need to update.

Jailbreaking is not about telling everyone what I can do with my phone. It's about how I can use my phone. All the tweaks that I have installed increase the functionalities of my phone. I don't jailbreak my device just to theme it. Here's a quick example of Apple's stubbornness: Why the heck do they limit how many apps can fit inside a folder? Does it make sense to have multiple folders for, say, Games (like Games 1, Games 2, etc.)? Is it not better to have one folder called Games and have all your games inside that folder? It's thing like this that Apple forces upon us that makes us want to jailbreak.

Yes like with 6.1.1 they have to update Evasi0n to recognize the 6.1.2 IPSW if the jailbreak wasnt patched by apple

Quick update. No problems. Checked Safari and definitely snappier.

This is why I only jailbreak for fun, and try to avoid DEPENDING on a jailbreak for anything.

Right now the nicest thing about my jailbroken iPad is being able to run Google Maps full screen using FullForce. That's literally the ONLY thing I'm doing with the jailbreak that I would miss heavily upon losing it. And maybe Google will release an ipad native version of Maps before then.

Oh, and an SNES emulator. But big whoop, I can play with those on my computer. It's not playable with a touchscreen anyway, so it's more of a "look how cool!" sort of thing.

I think you raise a valid point under your mistaken belief people jailbreak to "show off." I actually like some of the jailbreak tweaks and it's worth while. But, I am tired of the cat and mouse and I plan to switch to a Google Nexus phone. Why? iOS has become stale and I am tired of jailbreaking to enable functionality that better my smart phone experience. For example, having to jailbreak in order to share files between apps or to just set a default browser app is an embarrassment to a smart phone OS.

It's understandable, he probably needs his jailbreak for the multitasking. Oh, wait.

Probably not my place to speak for the poster you quoted, but my reading of the post was to point out some of the shortcomings related to jailbreaking.

I didn't get the idea the poster was AGAINST JB, just pointing out problems that it can cause.

JB if you wish...but don't be surprised when some problems occur.

...well, if that's the point they were making, it was a bit dramatic. Sure if you JB you have to maybe stay on a *gasp* older version of the OS until the devs catch up... but according to the 3-4 MILLION people who have downloaded the latest JB so far, it seems like a small price to pay for the added benefits.

What do I know, I have never JB'd anything...
