    One day before the launch of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad, Apple has just released iOS 6.0.1. The update had been reported to be in carrier testing two weeks ago.

    iPhone 5 users updating from their devices are required to first install an "updater" application to fix a bug that would otherwise prevent over-the-air updates. Once the updater has been applied users can download iOS 6.0.1 from their devices.

    Lol Forstall, iPhone 5 shipped with a bug that doesn’t let it get OTA updates.

    Has it ever used that iOS Updater before? I've never noticed it.

    Never mind, accidentally skipped over that part of the article.

    Installing now.

    The "iPhone 5 Updater" downloads an app that forces you to restart, then takes you Software Update in Settings to download 6.0.1 when you tap on it again.

    "Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances"

    I hope I can now make calls where I live.

    Still not showing for me...

    Also, the fact that an OTA update says "Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air" makes me laugh.

    Using an over-the-air software update to allow over-the-air software updates. Software Update-ception!

    Battery, battery, battery

    I upgraded to the 5 because my 4S after iOS6 couldn't get through the day without a mid-day recharge, or even more.

    My 5 is the same way. iOS 5 had tremendous battery life on my 4S.

    I really am disappointed this hasn't been resolved, or at least not mentioned in this update list.

    :mad:

    I'm a little puzzled with the updater app, obviously I understand its purpose for now, but can I just get rid of it after the update has completed?

    I love updates :) hopefully fixes my Wi-Fi issue at work! Also, with the new iPads arriving tomorrow, we surely must be seeing iTunes 11 today, would be a massive troll moment if they release 10.7.1 lol :D

    Yes, I did. I thought it was entertaining. :)

    Installing now, even though I don't believe any of the fixes will directly affect me.
