iOS 6.1.2 Will Fix Security Issues and Bugs

iOS 6 logo

A number of iOS 6 security issues and bugs have surfaced in recent days, highlighted by a flaw that allows a user to bypass an iPhone passcode and gain access to the device. Moreover, enterprise users have faced difficulties in responding to recurring calendar events through Microsoft Exchange following the iOS 6.1 update.  Fortunately, Apple is aware of both problems, and is promptly working on fixes that will be delivered in a future software update.

“Apple takes user security very seriously” spokeswoman Trudy Muller told AllThingsD. “We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”

According to German blog iPhone-Ticker, those fixes will allegedly come in the form of iOS 6.1.2, which the site claims will likely be released no later than Wednesday, February 20th. This source did accurately confirm the iOS 6.1.1 update in the past, just hours before it was released, so it does have some credibility and accuracy at reporting on iOS update rumors.
