iOS 6.1.2 Stories February 19, 2013

Evasi0n jailbreak 1.4 coming later today with official support for iOS 6.1.2 (Updated)

Apple released iOS 6.1.2 earlier today with a fix for the Microsoft Exchange calendar bug that we have covered several times. If you were wondering whether the update would play nice with the latest evasi0n jailbreak, team member Planetbeing just provided an update via Twitter. While noting that not all devices other than iPad mini Wi-Fi-only and iPhone 5 have not been tested, he later tweeted that version 1.4 of the evasi0n jailbreak tool will be released today with support for iOS 6.1.2:

We’ll update you when 1.4 is released. The update will be available through the evasi0n website.

Update: The download is now live.

As expected, Apple just released iOS 6.1.2 with a fix for the Exchange bug in iOS 6.1 that we previously reported. The 107mb update is available OTA and comes with build number 10B146 .We reported earlier this month that AOL had informed its corporate employees via email that it would temporarily disable the ability to manage meetings with Exchange on iOS devices running iOS 6.1. AOL confirmed it was working with Microsoft and Apple to fix the “continuous loop” bug, and many had highlighted the problem on Microsoft’s forums.

Fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life.

The release notes only list the Exchange issues, but ArsTechnica looked deeper to see if it also fixed the passcode unlock bug from iOS 6.1. :

We tried the convoluted unlock exploit on our own iPhone and were able to unlock the screen successfully under iOS 6.1.1, and the same process once again unlocked the phone in iOS 6.1.2. Put simply: it doesn’t look like this update fixes the passcode unlock bug, according to our testing.

A previous report from iFun, which predicted today’s release of 6.1.2, claimed enhancements to maps in Japan that Apple introduced in the recent 6.1.1 beta would reach consumers in the coming weeks as iOS 6.1.3.
