Earlier this week, out of uncertainty, Apple released an iOS 6.1 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This update is the first major update to iOS 6, since its launch in the last year. There have been minor updates before this, such as iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.2, but they were flawed with issues. The features introduced in iOS 6.1 are not necessarily groundbreaking, but as a fix and improvements to its previous mistakes. Let’s take a look at these features.

  • ‘Siri’ integration to search movies:- Siri has made it extremely simple to find movies, and then buy tickets from Fandango. It is also required to install the Fandango iPhone application to make this feature actually work.  Movies lovers would find this feature to be an extremely fitting update.
  • Apple Maps App:- Apple has definitely improved its Map App with this update. Some of the previous bugs are fixed but hasn’t been solved completely. Along with this it has also added a prominent ‘report a problem’ button.
  • Music Controls:- There is a newly fashioned Lock Screen Music controls in iOS 6.1. When the home button is pressed twice, the music controls pops up. It has been featured to access the music even if the screen is locked. The control interfaces and theme also go well with the Music app itself.
  • Fixed Wi-Fi issues:- iOS 6.1 on iPhone 5 has resolved all issues from iOS 6.0.2 update. The network connection seems to be strong and stable.

Along with all these features it has also fixed the issue of unexpected OS boot where as the power management is still not satisfying with this update.
