Apple Fixes the iOS 6.1 iPhone Battery Drain Issue, But Fails to Patch the Gaping Security Hole

By Sam Gibbs on at

Apple's finally gotten around to fixing the Exchange looping bug that was sucking batteries dry with another point update, but it's failed to nail shut the gaping hole in its lockscreen. Glad to see Apple's got its priorities straight.

The good news is that the Evad3rs have done the business and made sure you can jailbreak iOS 6.1.2, no problems. So, it's safe to upgrade to nuke the bugs; you'll just have to re-jailbreak to get your Nitrous, SBSettings and other essential tweaks back. [Apple]
