Following a recent roundtable, Jeff Van Fleet, Lighthouse President and CEO, has one question on his mind: is the software community sharing its knowledge?
Remember when I told you about the guy that couldn't back up his iPad and iPhone on iCloud last week? Well, it looks like he was heard, as were the 100 million people who upgraded their iPhones and iPads to iOS 6, and now Apple has just released iOS 6.0.1 today. So all you guys, go update your phone!
Apple released iOS 6.0.1 today, and you should go get it. It’s a minor upgrade to iOS 6 — the operating system that shipped with the iPhone 5 and that more than 100 million people have subsequently upgraded their iPads and iPhones to run. It has a lot of little fixes, but the one at the top of the list is a doozy. It turns out, the iPhone 5 shipped without the ability to update its software over the air. If you want that functionality, you’re either going to need to install an iOS Update Enabler app from Apple (it’s an automatic download via Settings) or, yes, plug your iPhone 5 into your computer and go through iTunes.
I really can't believe that when when this went into software testing, that there wasn't a requirement to update the software wirelessly. Really Apple? Does anyone know if Apple does their software testing internally or if they use a software testing company?
