iOS 6.0.1 arrives today ahead of the iPad mini, and it features some bug fixes that resolve issues around the famous horizontal lines appearing on the software keyboard bug, a camera flash issue, and improved Wi-Fi connectivity reliability. This is the first minor point upgrade for iOS 6, and should solve some of the update’s growing pains. But for iPhone 5 owners hoping to download it OTA, you’ll first have to update your updater, since one bug fixed here prevents wireless updating.

Luckily, everything can still be handled without plugging into a computer via physical cable. And once you’ve done the update, you’ll also get fixes for the above issues, as well as some spotty cellular connections, and a bug that allowed Passbook to bypass the lock screen. Go grab it now and let us know if you’re seeing better performance from your iOS 6 device after the update.
