Apple Expected To Release iOS 6.1.2 Soon With Fixes For Microsoft Exchange, Lock Screen Bypass Glitch And More
From the same source that predicted Apple would release iOS 6.1.1 to fix a variety of bugs affecting iPhone 4S users, comes another report that Apple will soon be releasing iOS 6.1.2. This update will be for all iOS devices and will likely include fixes for both the Evasi0n iOS 6.x Untethered Jailbreak exploit, Microsoft Exchange bug and also the recently discovered lockscreen exploit.
Apple indeed promised to fix these issues shortly and it makes sense they would come in the form of iOS 6.1.2. Although no exact release date was given, it has been reported that iOS 6.1.2 will drop early next week, likely before February 20th.
As the Evasi0n Jailbreak disables Over-The-Air (OTA) updates, Jailbreakers won’t have to worry about accidentally updating their Jailbroken devices. An update through iTunes is still possible however, so make sure you don’t update if iTunes prompts you until there is official confirmation from the Evad3rs that Apple has patched the Evasi0n exploit or not.
As for the initial release of iOS 6.1.1 that was said to improve the Maps experience in Japan, this will once again be postponed and released in an update dubbed iOS 6.1.3. We will keep you guys updated when more information is available. Until that time stay tuned.
