    Apple to address security issues in iOS 6.1.2 update in the next week or so | 9to5Mac

    According to a report from German language blog iFun, Apple is preparing to release iOS 6.1.2 early next week to address the much talked about Microsoft Exchange bug and passcode vulnerability. Apple already confirmed that both issues would be fixed in an upcoming software update, but iFun confirmed the update would land sometime before February 21 based on its checks with carriers.

    Hopefully it doesn't patch the JB or I'll pass.

    I agree. I can only imagine how things like these would have never happened with Jobs at the helm. Hopefully they can get things figured out with this update.

    At least with Apple the updates are straight from the source and not at the carrier's discretion! That is one of the many things that finally made me switch from "the darkside of the phone".

    With 6.1 installed i see no battery drain. I unplug my ip5 about 2 hrs before I go to work. 9hrs of audio books and surf ( Flipboard, Facebook, Twitter, Safari) on breaks and before & after my 10 hrs shift. Typical for Mon through Thurs. 35-40% left by the time I get home at 2am.

    Until a phone lasts 2 solid days I'll be charging nighty regardless.

    I have a problem with rushed updates like this one. They scramble to fix the jailbreak and pass code lock, and I the process the break other things. Apple should always take time to actually test and fix things properly, but they oftentimes don't.

    I really hope battery stays consistent here, too. I currently have the best battery life I have ever gotten on any phone. If they try and fix battery, I usually end up with worse results than I have ever gotten.

    Well I guess that can be a good and bad thing. Good you get quicker updates, bad that these updates introduce more bugs than previous versions.

    Just wait until IOS 7 is out and when the phones get updated I am sure people will claim it lowers their battery life. That is an ever occuring theme with these updates it seems.

    I can see major updates adding more features and using more battery; however, I don't see why bug fix updates would lower battery life.

    I had decent battery on iOS 6.0, but its the best I've ever had on a smartphone on 6.1.

    Well you can always have that rogue issue that pops up like the exchange issue, etc. Hopefully they can get it all worked out for the next update.

    I'm Jailbroken on 6.1 and have no battery drain. Maybe time for a restore and set up as new?

    So with 6.1.2 just around the corner... any good reason to upgrade to 6.1.1, or may as well hold off??

    6.1.1 is/was an iPhone4S only thing... so if that's what you have, and have not updated - and are not having the issues dot-1 was said to correct, it's a toss-up...

    6.1.1 is available for all iOS devices in the iOS beta center download page (developer.apple.com). Officially it's 4S only, but 6.1.1 in beta form is available for everything (including the 5)

    We mere mortals only got 6.1.1 if we have the 4S... and from what I understand, what they're releasing as dot-2 is pretty much the same thing as dot-1 for everything but the 4S...

    That's what I'm wondering, but it's looking like 6.1.1 "beta" will becoming 6.1.2...

    there's some verbiage in the developer page about 6.1.1 beta being "renamed" in the next release... so i'm curious if it's one and the same... ie. 6.1.1 beta = 6.1.2 production ?
