Apple Fixes iPhone 5 Bug

Apple Fixes iPhone 5 Bug That Prevents OTA Software Updates Apple released iOS 6.0.1 today, and you should go get it. It’s a minor upgrade to iOS 6 — the operating system that shipped with the iPhone 5 and that more than 100 million people have subsequently upgraded their iPads and iPhones to run. It has a lot of little fixes, but the one at the top of the list is a doozy. It turns out, the iPhone 5 shipped without the ability to update its software over the air. If you want that functionality, you’re either going to need to install an iOS Update Enabler app from Apple (it’s an automatic download via Settings) or, yes, plug your iPhone 5 into your computer and go through iTunes. Number one on Apple’s itemized list of improvements is a bullet point that notes it “Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air.” It also “Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances,” and another that “Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen.” Got an iPhone 5? You’re going to need to install this update. http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/11/new-ios-6-0-1-fixes-iphone-5-software-update-bug/

Thanks for sharing thought I like you post Open up the camera app by tapping on the camera icon, then simply press the shutter button or the iPhone 5's volume up key to snap photos! Looking for a little more functionality? Press the Options button and you'll see toggle switches for Grid, HDR and a panorama button. You can also turn flash on and off or set it to auto, or switch to the front-facing camera. The grid comes up to help you compost images and make sure your horizons are straight. HDR makes sure you get details in photos that have very bright and very dark areas in one scene. The Panorama button will take you to a new feature in iOS 6 that allows you to take a sweeping photo of a very wide scene. Simply follow the instructions that pop up on the screenIpod Touch Repairs
