iPhone update allows iPhone to get updates, also iOS 6.0.1

iPhone 5 stock

You really can’t make this up, folks.

Apparently, the iPhone 5 shipped with a bug that prevented owners of the device from receiving over-the-air (OTA) updates from Apple. A software update pushed to iPhone 5 devices today remedies the issue, downloading an application to your homescreen that allows you to install iOS 6.0.1. The iOS 6.0.1 update provides a full fix to the OTA update debacle as well as various bugfixes, including the bug that sometimes saw the iPhone using cellular data even when connected to WiFi.

The software update to iOS 6.0.1 is available now for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices.

    Hit “Learn More” and it will install an updater to your springboard.  Hit that and it will download the 6.0.1 update and … err .. umm .. update your iPhone 5 to iOS 6.0.1

    Simples.

    My comment, since you blocked me :)

    “No but I don’t get the feeling you wrote this article about your own personal experience. Your writing makes me look for a source since you talk about it like you don’t own an iPhone.So it’s not that I’m a bonehead. It’s just that your writing is confusing to the reader. Your website doesn’t have any credibility for original articles to me, since I’ve never heard of it. You don’t have any credibility to me, because of your blatant attacking of people who might read your articles (calling me names like fucktard and bonehead because I didn’t believe you). Maybe using some personal pronouns (if you do indeed own an iPhone 5, which you have only alluded too, but never outright said in this ‘conversation’) would help. Otherwise, a source.”
