    Too bad I didn't know before updating! Yesterday I updated to 6.01 hoping to solve some of the bugs. Well, I managed to solve myself the problem where it was not possible to download anything from the Apple Store and the lags doing things where there was no lag before are not that bad. There is one particular bug... not a big deal, really, but... The thing is when you go airplane mode, if you try to switch the wifi on (still in airplane mode) it goes online. In fact I can see both symbols: the little airplane and wifi side by side and you are online. As I said, it's not a real problem, it's quite graphic an example. Obviously before updating it was not possible to switch the wifi on while on airplane mode.

    Oh well. Lesson learned. Read before updating next time!

    You have always been able to turn wifi on when in airplane mode. By default, it switches wifi off, but you can then manually go in and switch it on.

    I've always been able to do this on all of my devices, and I know most others have as well..

    Its actually a feature. Say you're on a flight with wifi. You can't have your cellular antenna on, but the wifi is cleared, so you turn on airplane mode, then turn on wifi.

    Not sure why you're quoting me..I was the one to tell him/her that it's not a bug..perhaps you should be quoting Masneck?

    As the others have stated, this has always been possible and is actually a feature.

    Back to the OP, No problems with iOS 6.0.1, go ahead and download! :)

    Senseotech, tyler23, glad to hear it's not a bug, but you have my word i couldn't do it on my iPad 3 before I updated to 6.0. That's why i thought it was a bug. Haha! Does it mean the bug was before, not after updating?

    Correct. Its been there for as long as I can recall, so if not from the beginning, then early on.

    Agree with Sensotech. The update must've fixed the bug because that's been a feature for as long as I can remember, just as Sensotech said.

    By the way, I remember now i told a guy at the apple store. A seller, I mean. Well, I showed him and he was as surprised as me. Either he wasn't much of an expert or this feature is kind of unknown.

    Well, he was convinced (or so he insisted) that Macs don't know what a virus is, so go figure.

    ios 6 screwed up battery life for me and brought app crashing and screen flicker.

    ios 6.0.1 fixed the battery life, but for the rest i still need more time to determine if theyve been fixed. the screen flicker seldom happened anyhow...
