Apple likely to release iOS 6.1.2 next week

Apple will roll out its iOS 6.1.2 update early next week in order to resolve the lock screen passcode issue and the Exchange bug, according to new reports. Both these issues have been victimising some iOS 6.1 users following its launch.

According to German website iFun, which accurately predicted the release of iOS 6.1.1, the new update will hit consumers’ devices before 21 February. The report is based on checks with multiple mobile carriers.

iOS 6.1.2 will be aimed at fixing the noted glitches in iOS 6.1. While the Exchange bug prevents iOS 6.1-powered devices from synchronising with Exchange servers, the lockscreen passcode issue enables anybody to bypass the four-digit prompt by following a few of simple steps.

Apple rolled out the iOS 6.1.1 update earlier this week in order to fix the cellular performance issue affecting some iPhone 4S users. However, after installing the 6.1.1 update, many iPhone 4S users complained that the battery life of their devices was reduced significantly.
