Apple has just released iOS 6.0.1 for all compatible iOS 6.0 devices. The update supposedly fixes a number of popular problems that have plagued a number of iOS 6 users, such as horizontal lines displayed on the keyboard, Wi-Fi reliability issues when connected to WPA2 networks, and more. You’ll find the full changelog below, as well as direct links to the iOS 6.0.1 IPSWs. If you’re waiting for a jailbreak, it’s highly recommended to stay away from installing the update. One thing to note is that, specifically for the iPhone 5, you’ll first be required to install a special preparation uploader (see screenshot below) in order to even install the iOS 6.0.1 update, at least OTA. You can still use iTunes to install iOS 6.0.1, though.
