apple ios 6.1

Apple releases ios 6.1 today with improvements for iTunes match and siri. According to the release notes, the update adds LTE support for additional carriers also (36 for iPhone, 23 for iPad).

Philip Schiller Said,“iOS 6 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, and with nearly 300 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices on iOS 6 in just five months, it may be the most popular new version of an OS in history.”

Apple first began testing beta builds of iOS 6.1 with developers last November. The free software update is compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad (third and fourth generation), iPad mini, iPad 2 and iPod touch (fourth and fifth generation). Generally a jailbreak isn’t released until Apple releases their first major point update. Now that it’s here, we’ll hopefully see a jailbreak option surface sometime in February. In the meantime, however, you can enjoy some improved features and bug fixes courtesy of Apple

The update is available on your device in the Settings app (General -> Software Update).
