The company recommended a number of workarounds, such as blocking or throttling users on iOS 6.1 devices, while it worked with Apple to find a permanent fix. Apple confirmed on Thursday that it has “identified a fix and will make it available in an upcoming software update.”

Jefferies & Co.’s Peter Misek, the analyst who has predicted an Apple HDTV for quite sometime, today provided his roadmap for upcoming Apple product launches (pictured above via BusinessInsider).
