iOS 6.0.1 will fix bugs, Apple said to be testing iOS 6.1

Details have surfaced regarding the next iterations of Apple's mobile operating system.

Apple will release a bug-squashing new version of its iOS operating system within a few weeks, according to reports.

Citing anonymous sources, BGR reckons iOS 6.0.1 is being tested with networks in the US, and will stomp on bugs that involve things like the camera's flash not going off, and a glitch that allowed access to the Passbook ticket-storing app from the lock screen.

Nothing too exciting then -- certainly no new Maps app -- but some important security fixes by the sound of it. Improved Wi-Fi support and a fix for a bug that sees horizontal lines appearing when the keyboard or an app folder are open are also reported improvements.

The mysterious source also reportedly shared that Apple has only just started started on a bigger upgrade, called iOS 6.1, which means this upcoming version of its operating system is unlikely to be beamed out to iPhones, iPods and iPads any time soon.

Instead it's probable we'll see iOS 6.1 after Christmas, rather than arriving with the much-anticipated iPad mini, which Apple is expected to unveil at an event this evening.

Kicking off at 6pm, make sure you keep your eyes trained to CNET UK for all the news as it happens. The smart money is on a 7-inch (or thereabouts) device with a lower resolution than the retina display-packing new iPad that was revealed in the spring.

Apple is also rumoured to be revealing new Macs, including a 13-inch retina MacBook Pro. What would you like to see the Californian company showing off this evening? Tell me in the comments or on our Facebook wall.
