Apple rolled out Apple iOS 6.1 at the end of last month and the latest version of Apple's operating system has been nothing but trouble ever since. Embarrassingly for the company three separate issues have come to light which all require fixes !
The latest and most serious problem relates to a flaw in iOS 6.1 which enables users to bypass Apple's Passcode security feature. Essentially, this gives hackers to opportunity to gain access to a users device without having to enter the unlock code.
As you'd expect Apple have been working hard to roll-out a fix for the problem ever since the issues was highlighted. The latest information suggests that iOS 6.1.2 will rolled-out tomorrow on Apple devices which will be a relief to owners of the iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Earlier this month Apple had to release iOS 6.1.1 for the iPhone 4S after the iOS 6.1 update caused huge problems with the smartphone's 3G connectivity. Owners of Apple's older iPhone were seeing calls dropped and very bad 3G reception.
Microsoft have also criticised the latest release of Apple's iOS platform (6.1) because it has introduced a problem which stops their Exchange software functioning correctly. We presume a fix to correct this issue is also being produced by Apple , possibly in collaboration with Microsoft.
Overall, the release of iOS 6.1 has been pretty damaging to Apple's reputation and we have to wonder whether the same situation would have arose had Steve Jobs still been around.
3G will let you know when we get more news of the release of iOS 6.1.2 and any other information related to Apple's operating system.
