BGR reports through one of its many reliable sources that Apple has already began testing iOS 6.0.1 with different U.S. carrier partners for a near future release, with fixes for iPhone 5 horizontal lines bug and problem with the camera’s flash not going off in iOS 6. Additionally, Apple is expected to release iOS 6.1 after the holidays.
The report further claims that iOS 6.0.1 will address the bug that allowed access to Passbook pass details from the lock screen, fix issues with Exchange meetings, improve Wi-Fi support, fix cellular data not working in some cases and also add a consolidated cellular data switch for iTunes Match.
In addition to iOS 6.0.1 news, we have also learned that Apple is only now just starting testing on iOS 6.1. This makes it extremely unlikely iOS 6.1 will ship with the new iPad mini by November 2nd unless there is a separate build just for the new iPad, and iOS 6.1 for all other devices will launch at a later time.
Apple is scheduled to hold a special media event tomorrow at the California Theatre, where it is expected to unveil a smaller screen iPad Mini, a 13″ Retina MacBook Pro and also refresh its Mac Mini and iMac models.
