Apple today made iOS version 6.0.1 available to the iPhone. In order to download the update, iPhone users must first download and install a new "iPhone Updater" application. This new application is necessary due to a bug in iOS 6 that prevents iPhones from downloading system updates. Once the iPhone Updater app installed, then the iPhone is able to access and download iOS 6.0.1. According to Apple, the update includes a large number of bug fixes that affect a wide array of the iPhone's features. Some include fixes to a horizontal line bug that appeared on the keyboard, Wi-Fi performance, the camera flash, cellular connectivity problems, and Exchange Meeting issues. The update clocks in at 68MB and is free to download over the air.

Update App?

I didn't need to install any special downloaded and installed with no trouble.... Confused
Went right through on my Sprint 4S
Yeah..not sure what he's referring to..searched for "iPhone updater" and nothing came up either. It came up in the normal place to look for updates in the Settings app. Maybe Eric was high when he wrote this.. Laughing
Apple also just released 6.1 beta to developers.

Shows up on my iPhone 4 as 43.3MB

I'd assume it'd be different for the iPhone 4S and 5 though.
Maps? Does it fix maps? har har; just kidding, my wife's 4S seems to run the update without any problems. Her imaps worked very well, none of the drama of others.....good thing too, she gets lost easily lol.
