Apple reportedly testing iOS 6.0.1 update; to fix Wi-Fi, Exchange and other issues
Apple is reportedly testing an update to iOS 6, which is expected to roll-out "in the coming weeks", reports BGR.

Citing "reliable Apple sources", the site mentions that the iOS 6.0.1 update is currently being tested with multiple US carriers and likely to address various bugs such as screen glitches appearing when the keyboard or app folder is open and an issue with the camera's LED flash not going off.

The updated version is also expected to improve glitches pertaining to Wi-Fi and cellular data connections as well as an issue pertaining to Passbook security. Some reports have indicated that Passbook details are unexpectedly being accessible from the lock screen.

Another bug fix involves preventing Exchange meetings to be unexpectedly cancelled for the entire calendar invite group, when just one user declines. Additionally, the update should also add a control for iTunes Match syncing via 3G/4G data connections.

The site's sources claim that a bigger iOS referred to as iOS 6.1 is also in the testing phase. The timelines for either update are unclear. If we go by a timeframe comparison, Apple released iOS 5.0.1 a month after iOS 5.0, while iOS 5.1 came almost 5 months later.

Here's a summary of what to expect from the iOS 6.0.1 software update:
  • Fix for horizontal lines appearing on the keyboard
  • Improved Wi-Fi support
  • A bug fix for cellular data and cellular data used with iTunes Match
  • LED flash not going off  at times when photos are taken
  • A Passbook security issue via the lock screen
  • A bug with Microsoft Exchanges meetings getting cancelled for the whole group
