Just released:


Apple today updated iOS to version 6.1, adding LTE capabilities to 36 additional iPhone carriers and 23 additional iPad carriers around the world, so even more iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad with Retina display users can experience ultrafast wireless performance to browse, download and stream content at blazing fast speeds. To date, iOS users have uploaded over nine billion photos to Photo Stream, sent over 450 billion iMessages and received over four trillion notifications.

“iOS 6 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, and with nearly 300 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices on iOS 6 in just five months, it may be the most popular new version of an OS in history,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iOS 6.1 brings LTE support to more markets around the world, so even more users can enjoy ultrafast Safari browsing, FaceTime video calls, iCloud services, and iTunes and App Store downloads.”

iOS 6 features include Siri, which supports more languages, easy access to sports scores, restaurant recommendations and movie listings; Maps with Apple-designed cartography, turn-by-turn navigation and Flyover view; Facebook integration for Contacts and Calendar, with the ability to post directly from Notification Center, Siri and Facebook-enabled apps; Shared Photo Streams via iCloud; and Passbook, the simplest way to get all your passes in one place. Additional updates in iOS 6.1 include the ability to use Siri to purchase movie tickets in the US through Fandango, and iTunes Match subscribers can download individual songs to their iOS devices from iCloud.

The revolutionary App Store℠ offers more than 800,000 apps to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users, with more than 300,000 native iPad apps. App Store customers have downloaded over 40 billion apps, and Apple has paid over seven billion dollars to its incredible developer community. Customers can choose from apps in 23 categories, including newspapers and magazines offered in Newsstand, games, business, news, sports, health & fitness and travel.

Availability
iOS 6.1 is available as a free software update today. iOS 6.1 is compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad (third and fourth generation), iPad mini, iPad 2 and iPod touch (fourth and fifth generation). Some features may not be available on all products. For more information please visit www.apple.com.

*LTE is available on iPhone 5, iPad mini and fourth generation iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular models through select carriers. Network speeds are dependent on carrier networks, check with your carrier for details.
**Information about LTE carriers can be found at www.apple.com/iphone/LTE and www.apple.com/ipad/LTE.

I haven't even installed it and I've already found a bug :)

Settings > General > Software Update > Learn More > There's a piece of underlined blue text that looks like a hyperlink but isn't actually tappable. If you go to the URL (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222) on your computer then there's no mention of 6.1 on that page.

I've been banging on about it on twitter, but I'd be keen for anyone that's upgraded if they've got 3g VPNs to work again. Ever since IOS6 access to pptp (and I think l2tp) vpns via 3g have been failing.

Nothing much to see IMO.

Re ATV, BT is good I guess, but I prefer the Remote app rather than another piece of hardware.

Hopefully iOS7 will be a big change, with SJ gone for a while now, time for TC to push forward. Same-ish UI, but more features, and please make the Photos useable, as in make open file access too all photos not just the Camera Roll

Jailbreak for iOS 6.1 for iPhone 5 and other devices will supposedly be released this Sunday.
I'll believe it when I see it. :)

I was trying to do an OTA update on my iPhone 4S runnin 6.0.1, by going to Settings --> General --> Software Update and the version that comes up shows IOS 6.1 Beta 4.  

This happens on all our IOS devices - my Mrs's iPhone 4 and iPad2 (also running 6.0.1) is showing the ame thing.

Am I missing something here?

I don't have a 5 or iPad mini hence all our devices are only on 6.0.1 (max).  Would be interested to see if anyone on 6.0.1 whether they get OTA update to 6.1 option.

They may be doing a progressive push out of the update to help ensure their servers don't get totally hammered,
