Recently, we’ve told you about a number of bugs that cropped up in recent iOS releases. There was the problem with devices connecting to Microsoft Exchange servers, there was the lock screen bypass, and there was the issue with ineffective “Don’t Allow Changes” settings. We heard that Apple was actively working on resolving at least some of these problem, ans that a new iOS release would be coming soon. This week, we get to see the fruits of that labor, with the distribution of iOS 6.1.2.
While this is a step towards fixing things, the only issue 6.1.2 resolves is the Exchange problem. That’s not bad a thing, since that was a huge headache for users and system administrators affected by it, but those other bugs remain. The “Don’t Allow Changes” problem may not be particularly high priority, but we had thought Apple was treating the lock issue with due concern and we’d be seeing that bug squashed-out this week, as well.
It’s not inconceivable that iOS 6.1.3 could be right around the corner to take care of that issue, and perhaps Apple merely wanted to rush out 6.1.2 as soon as it could, especially if it got a head-start on developing the Exchange fix.
