iOS 6.1 Released To The Public


iOS 6.1 is finally out of beta. After months of testing, Apple released the latest update to its iOS mobile operating system Monday morning. 6.1, which is currently available for over-the-air download via the Software Update option on Apple’s iOS devices, contains a number of bug fixes and some new features as well. Among them: Siri-enabled movie ticket purchases via Fandango and support for individual song downloads from iTunes Match. Most importantly, this latest point release of iOS adds LTE capabilities to 36 additional iPhone carriers and 23 additional iPad carriers around the world.

For the Apple TV, it adds Bluetooth keyboard control, which is a nice addition. More widespread LTE support is also nice, if it applies to you.

On the whole though, iOS 6.1 had an uncharacteristically long beta period for an update that really doesn’t have anything of interest in it.
