Rumors Look To iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.1 Releases

When putting together our dossier on what we know and what we don’t about the iPad mini and Apple’s plans for tomorrow’s event, we mentioned what the shindig might mean for iOS. It would be characteristic of Apple to release an update alongside a product launch like this, but just how significant might it be? Some new rumors attempt to detail just what Apple’s planning, and what changes we might hope to see in the next iOS.

Supposedly, iOS 6.0.1 is just over the horizon, already undergoing carrier testing. It should feature a number of bugfixes, correcting some of the iOS 6 issues we’ve mentioned before, as well as some that hadn’t yet crossed our path, like calendar glitches and security issues with Passbook. From the sounds of things, it might still be too early for Apple to release the update following tomorrow’s event, though it could still announce it for a couple weeks down the line.

Even further off in the future should be iOS 6.1, though we’re at a loss for what specific changes it may be bringing. According to the source behind these claims, iOS 6.1 might be expected sometime following the holiday season.
