    Apple today released iOS 6.1.3 to the public, delivering several minor enhancements including a fix for a passcode security bug.

    Apple last week quietly delivered some server-side improvements to Maps for Japanese users, but it appears that iOS 6.1.3 also builds in some updates for these users.

    iOS 6.1.3 began life as iOS 6.1.1 in early February, but was re-labeled as iOS 6.1.3 as Apple rushed out a pair of emergency bug fixes.

    iOS 6.1.3, which arrives as Build 10B329, also reportedly addresses at least one of the security holes used by the evasi0n jailbreak tool, so users interested in jailbreaking their devices will undoubtedly want to hold off on upgrading until more information surfaces.

    Jailbreaking is a reason to NOT upgrade to this. Bring on useful features and maybe I won't have to JB Apple

    I could edit my post and add "Safari feels snappier" to make your post invalid. :D

    Is it because you have an Android phone and Verizon must approve of the update like 3 months later?

    Sarcasm or are you asking for real? If latter, then, I have a jailbroken iPhone 5 and I am very happy with it.

    I hope it fixes the issue my iPhone 5 has with holding on to my home wifi signal long after it's no longer usable.

    Annoying....

    Did they fix the issue with Safari and other apps not playing background audio from YouTube and other sites?

    This is what I'm talking about...

    That's not a bug, that's a feature ;)

    But in all seriousness, I think they removed it on purpose.

    There's an app called McTube that still works perfect for background audio though :)

    Ahh finally the fix to remove choice from my device and lock me securely back into apples airtight eco system that i have been waiting for ... :rolleyes:

    Think ill stick with the build i have + Cydia until apple add a feature to the updates instead of just releasing updates that close jailbreaks.

    Apple seems to have gone from innovating, to evolving, to stagnating, to normal corporate bullcrap in record time since SJ passed.

    Probably just a patch to fix the iOS jailbreak issue, nothing more.


    My iPad demands me to be on wifi to update, most annoying thing ever, i have unlimited data on my wifi+3G iPad mini but i cant bloody use it unless i jailbreak...then i cant update because it will break the jailbreak.

    Apple needs to lift that app size/update download limit, its really a stoneage limit now, given that my iPad minis speed test on 3G is 16mb/s down and 9mb/s up so its broadband speeds
