Apple Releases iOS 6.1.2 With Exchange Bug Fix (Updated)

iPhone 5

Apple has today released an update to iOS 6 in the form of iOS 6.1.2. The update is significant because it carries a fix for the issue that affected Exchange ActiveSync and iOS devices resulting in the excessive generation of transaction logs on Exchange servers. The bug was centered around calendar meeting requests on Exchange accounts and has apparently been resolved in the new update.

The update unfortunately doesn’t address an issue that was brought to light last week in the form of a bug that allowed access to a users iPhone even if the Passcode lock function was enabled. Despite this, the latest update is available from Apple now as an over-the-air update in the Settings app on iOS devices.

Users who were experiencing issues with battery life related to the Exchange bug now may find that their battery life will return to normal with the latest update, as the iOS device should now no longer be repeatedly accessing Exchange servers in a loop.


Updated to note lack of passcode bug fix.
