Apple iOS 6.1 available to all users. Major improvements are there not because during the beta test was not widely reported new features. In iOS 6.1 are mainly technical improvements, bug fixes and tweaks for developers implemented.Below is a list of the major observable changes in iOS 6.1. For most users, there is no rush to update.
- LTE support for more providers: a list can be found at apple.com / iphone / LTE / . Netherlands and Belgium there (yet), but some Belgians see a LTE switch as shown. See footnote at the bottom of this article.
- iTunes Match subscribers can now download individual songs from iCloud.
- New button to display the ad id reset.
In addition, in the beta versions of iOS 6.1, the next visible improvements found:
- Other music playback buttons on the ontgrendelscherm
- Clearer linkje to send in complaints about Apple Maps
- Tutorial explaining how PBS works
- Movie Tickets ordered via Siri (U.S. only)
- Enhanced security steps for iCloud when setting up a new iPhone
For jailbreakers, there is good news, because the known jailbreak developers were eager that Apple would release iOS 6.1. They have united in evad3rs team announced that they already have a jailbreak for iOS 6.1 ready
It is unclear whether the battery in iOS 6.1 is improved. Some end users who have installed iOS 6.1 beta 5 say yes, while developers from the first beta versions is correct to say that the battery life has remained unchanged. As is usually the battery life is of individual factors.
iOS 6.1 for iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad (third and fourth generation), iPadmini, iPad 2 and iPod touch (fourth and fifth generation). It is striking that the build number is not same for all models: the iPhone 5 , iOS 6.1 (10B143) and the iPad mini has 6.1 (10B141) firmware.
Other improvements in iOS 6.1 are focused on the technical operation, eg improved APIs and bugfixes. Apps optimized for iOS 6.1, for example, better look at the Map Kit framework, which allows a developer Apple’s map service itself can use. In third-party apps you than with natural language search, eg “pizza” or “coffee” to a public house in the neighborhood.
Apple Maps would also have improved in recent months, but that are independent of the tweaks that Apple iOS installed version 6.x can perform (the cards are indeed retrieved online).
The really great innovations, we will see iOS 7 , presumably at WWDC in June 2013 is presented. The iOS 6.1 update appears to give problems when installing on iPod touch fifth generation.
The new OTA update is 107MB, contains support for more LTE providers (Open Mobile Claro and insurance), you can buy tickets for the cinema using Siri and the Fandango app can now also download individual songs in iTunes Match.
Note that there is what we were all looking forward with the final version of iOS 6.1 on the hands of all, it is possible that we are all ready to have the jailbreak as soon as possible. I would say that in a matter of days.
