If you’ve been an iPhone user, you probably know that one of the most annoying things that come with owning an iPhone is the various bugs that come with an update. And Apple’s latest update is teeming with bugs that are making a lot of users unhappy.

One of the many bugs experienced by users from the update is the excessive communication between a device and Microsoft Exchange Servers causing increased network activity and at times failure to sync emails or update calendars. Moreover this bug causes increased network activity which rapidly depletes the battery and causes overheating. In fact, reports say that AOL has already disabled corporate meeting management via iDevices on iOS 6.1 as the bus is causing a continuous loop when synchronizing a recurring calendar meeting invitation.

Some users also reported difficulty connecting with Wi-Fi, most of them reporting that they are unable to scan for any Wi-Fi network since they updated to iOS 6.1x or that they experienced intermittent connection every few minutes.

Last but definitely not the least, is the iOS 6.1 security exploit which allows anyone to bypass the device’s passcode lock function entirely with just a few simple steps. This exploit supposedly works on all devices running on the latest update and posts a serious security threat for both ordinary consumers and even companies who rely on BYOD (Bring your own device) policy.

Apple is fully aware of these bugs and are working quickly on a fix. And if we are to believe reports, the Cupertino Company might release another update (iOS 6.1.2) to fix all these issues before February 21.
