Today, Apple has released iOS 6.1 to the public. The software update comes 3 months after the initial version was released to developers. iOS devices can be updated over the air by going to Settings-> General-> Software Update. You can also update your iOS device by plugging into a computer and clicking on Update in the Summary page in iTunes.
This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
- LTE support for more carriers
- Purchase movie tickets through Fandango with Siri (USA only)
- iTunes Match subscribers can now download individual songs from iCloud
- New button to reset the Advertising Identifier
Apple TV users also have a few new features with the software update. Bluetooth has been added to support wireless keyboards, Up Next has been added to see upcoming songs when playing music and users can now browse and play music from iCloud.
The update is not much to get excited about with only minimal new features. However, the release of iOS 6.1 means an untethered jailbreak should arrive shortly. Perhaps, as soon as Super Bowl Sunday.
