Apple Post Updates For iOS 6, Aperture, iPhoto, And Safari [Updates]

Ads by Google

On the eve of the iPad mini release, Apple released an iOS 6.0.1 software update, followed by another set of updates for iPhoto, Aperture, and Safari. While these updates include numerous bug fixes and stability improvements, they also add a few enhancement features and security patches.

The iOS update fixes a bug that prevents the iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over cellular, issues with horizontal lines displayed across the keyboard, and the possibility of the camera flash not firing.

The iPhoto and Aperture update include useful enhancements to the Photo Stream feature, allowing users to now drag-and-drop photos to “Photo Stream” in the source list of both applications, as well as the ability to copy and paste multiple email addresses in the “Shared with” field for shared items.

Photo Stream is a photo sharing feature in iOS 6 and Mountain Lion that sends and shares photos between supported devices. All shared photos are stored in a user’s iCloud account and they must be manually imported in ordered to be kept on a respective iOS or Mac Photo Library. Otherwise, each new photo added to Photo Stream is deleted after 30 days. A maximum of 1000 photos at a time can be stored for free in iCloud.

This OS X update also addresses reliability issues of Shared Photo Streams when switching between iPhone and Aperture using the same library. Also included in the update is a contextual menu that now includes an import command to import all the photos contained in a shared Photo Stream.

    Besides from some weird crashes on some of the native apps, I didn’t had any problems with iOS6. Some of the times the Calendar and/or the Contacts app are freezing and force closes. Does anybody else here had the same issue?

    • Bakari Chavanu

      Hmm, I never experienced that problem, Anthony. Have you tried deleting these apps from the App Switcher? Sometimes that helps when apps freeze up.

    IOS 6 fix its mistakes very fast as i see, and soon it will take its position at the top

    • Bakari Chavanu

      Yep, it seems that way, Ahmed.

      I don’t think it as a thing. Fast update can assume, they are not making a good OS from beginning, so they must update it soon.. :D
      Just a thought..

  • Raghav Gupta

    Its a nice update full of fixes

  • Boni Oloff

    I even not installing IOS 6 yet… No jailbreak for 4S yet :)

    • Bakari Chavanu

      Aww, so you’re a jailbreak guy. Cool man, you’re braver than I.

    • Boni Oloff

      Haha..I think jailbreak is a must in all IDevice, because they make your device more powerful with their tweak.
