iPhone 5 And Other iOS Devices Receive New Update, Find Out Why
Apple rolls out “minor” update to its iOS operating system, to fix the passcode lock screen “bug.”
Article written by Kevin Go – Apple has just released an update to its iOS mobile operating system which is said to come with the fix for a flaw related to the passcode lock screen that can allow an unauthorized person to bypass your iDevice’s passcode lock and gain complete control of your device just by doing some finger dance moves on the display.
On the software update status, Apple said that the iOS 6.1.3 is 18.2 MB only and contains “improvements and bug fixes.” Apparently, it has no mention of the passcode lock bug.
Not only that, the iOS 6.1.3 update also contains some fixes for the maps application which will be helpful to those who are residing in Japan.
Some users complain of shorter battery life when they gave the iOS 6.1.2 a run, it is not yet known if the latest update will fix this issue so it would be great if you guys could share with us your experience after updating to iOS 6.1.3, some buddies of ours mentioned that some apps force close/crash after updating to 6.1.2 though we haven not experienced that on any of our iPhones.
The software update appears to be available to most, if not all, iOS devices such as the iPad Mini, iPod Touch, iPhone 5 and iPad 4. It can be downloaded over-the-air but if for some reason that tactic is not possible, you can always plug your device to your computer and do the deed with a bit of help from iTunes.
