Yes. 6.0.1 contains the fix. The updater app is simply a bridge to get there. It is removed upon updating to 6.0.1.

It'll probably be deleted once 6.0.1 has been installed.

It's a sad state of affairs when you need to install a patch just to allow the path to install.....

I never even realized, and I'm a developer.

Forstall, sorry guys but since he's been with Apple it has been chaos. Too big of an ego. The claim to fame for iDevices and iOS lies with Ive and Jobs, Forstall took undo credit and caused more strife after Jobs' passing. Once Jobs was [sadly] gone, Forstall's department was slowly put into motion.

Ive and the rest will fair much better with H.I.'s. For the first time since "Leopard/Snow Leopard", I'm looking forward to what's next in Apple's OS's.

It pretty bad that the 5 shipped with a bug that prevents it from getting OTA updates.

Downloading now...

To be honest I havent really noticed any problems (apart from the app store always crashing).

I will give it a few days before passing judgement or commenting on it. Its only fair after all.

I could have sworn that MacRumors just posted that Apple was testing this update a couple of days ago... Anyways, I'll wait, might as well since I don't have power [Hurricane Sandy Aftermath - NYC Area]

Ugh

Does it go away after you actually upgrade to 6.0.1? I'm not on WiFi I can't actually install the patch

Edit: I see that it does, ok
