Apple Set To Release iOS 6.1.2 Update With Bug Fixes Pretty Soon

Apple is reportedly working on pushing the iOS 6.1.2 update as early as next week, which will address both Microsoft Exchange bug as well as the passcode vulnerability issues, according to the German blog iFun. While Apple has already stated that both issues will be fixed in the next iOS update, the source claims that the software update may be released sometime before Feb. 21.


iFun has been fairly accurate in the past in predicting iOS update release dates, including the iOS 6.1.1 launch. The blog is now reporting through the same sources that Apple will release iOS 6.1.2 in the next week or so.

Apple already confirmed that both issues would be fixed in an upcoming software update, but iFun confirmed the update would land sometime before Feb. 21 based on its checks with carriers.

In addition, the report appears to claim the enhancements to maps in Japan that Apple introduced in the recent 6.1.1 beta would reach consumers in the coming weeks as iOS 6.1.3.

Apple has already acknowledged both the flaws, saying “we are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”
