Apple released iOS 6.1.2 today. This update is supposed to fix a bug in the calendar that was causing increased network activity and draining battery life, if I’m understanding it all correctly.
I wish I could tell you how long it took me to update, but alas, I can’t do it yet. If you have any problems downloading this update or after the update is installed, give me a shout and I’ll see what I can find out. Or, I’ll just commiserate.
I’m tired of pecking at this keyboard and also must attend to my ailing iPad. I’ll hopefully see all of you with a review in the morning or at least sometime tomorrow.
That’s it for me today. Until later, …
UPDATE: I’m just starting a full restore on my iPad (a 12-15 hour process for me) after fighting to get it started for several hours now since trying to update to 6.1.2.
I was told by my very sweet and super competent Apple senior advisor Kylie that this could be because something may have interrupted, however briefly, my attempt at a wireless update as opposed to doing the update through iTunes. A router dropping wifi for a moment or something similar may have stopped the update mid download causing the iPad to enter Recovery Mode.
The rest is a tale for another day.
If anyone else had problems updating to 6.1.2 wirelessly, leave me a note below please.
