Apple releases iOS 6.1 with additional LTE support

Apple releases iOS 6.1 with additional LTE support

After five beta test versions, Apple today released iOS 6.1, the first major update to iOS 6 since last September.

The software, which went out this morning as an over the air update, as well as a download through  iTunes, brings a few new minor features, along with bug fixes.

Chief among the new features is 4G LTE support for more carriers, along with a feature that lets users purchase movie tickets from Fandango after finding showtimes using Siri. Apple also returned the option for iTunes Match subscribers to download individual songs from iCloud, something that was quietly removed in a previous software release.

On the privacy side, the update also adds an option to reset Apple’s advertising identifier option, the “non-permanent, non-personal, device identifier” feature added as part of  iOS 6.

Other, minor changes in iOS 6.1 include new boarding pass behavior in Apple’s Passbook software, tweaks to  Safari, reworked music playback controls from the lock screen, and a back-end change in Apple’s mapping software.

The update comes less than two days after the release of a fifth beta version of iOS 6.1, which Apple oddly put out to developers during the weekend.

Apple’s last update to iOS 6 was iOS 6.0.2 in mid-December. That software, which went out to users only on Apple’s newest devices, fixed a handful of bugs, including one that kept iPhone 5 users from installing over-the-air software updates. It also fixed an issue with lines appearing on the software keyboard, and a bug that deleted meetings from calendars when accepting an invitation.
