Reports are coming in that Apple are preparing an updated version of their iOS mobile operating system to roll out in just as the iPad Mini hits shelves.
Landing in the coming weeks after today’s widely expected iPad Mini launch, the update is said to bring with it a number of fixes. iOS 6.0.1 will include a patch to fix a horizontal line bug, which causes some pixel lines to not refresh properly when the keyboard is used or app folders are opened. The update should also bring with it a fix for the camera flash, which some iPhone 5 and iPad users have noted doesn’t always go off when required.
Other smaller fixes, such as improved Wi-Fi support, a cellular data switch for iTunes Match, a Passbook lock screen bug and a cellular data reliability enhancement will also land.
A more comprehensive update, bringing brand new features to iOS in the shape of build 6.1, is expected in early 2013.
As for the iPad Mini, it’s expected to be revealed at snazzy Apple launch event at 10am West Coast USA time, or 6pm UK time. We’ll be offering full coverage of the event throughout the night, so keep checking back for all the details and analysis you can stomach.
