We have been hearing news that Apple is working on updates for iOS 6.0.1 to deal with several bugs. So the time is up. Apple has released their first update to iOS 6, which was launched first back in September.
The iOS 6.0.1update is free, and it offers several bug fixes.
The other main feature of this update, for iPhone 5 users at least, is the improvement of the process of receiving OTA (over the air programming) updates. The updates can now be done with the help of iTunes or through using wireless.

Other fixes were related to the static horizontal lines that used to appear while using the keyboard, camera flash bug, adding control for iTunes Match syncing via 3G/4G data connections and improving reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks.
