iOS 6.1 is indeed a fresh taste, however, it has its consequences, some complain, how their iOS devices running 6.1 unable to sync with Microsoft Exchange, instantly afterwards, Apple released the 6.1.1 iOS update exclusively to iPhone 4S users which apparently didn't work out as well, some write, I have only used minor iMessaging and my battery has seemed to drop a percentage every two minutes or so just in standby, what's worse, anther passcode bug allows access to your contacts, voicemails and photos on iOS device without entering the 4-digit passcode necessarily.
With all of the bugs, we waited and waited for a software update, fortunately, the good news, Apple launched the iOS 6.1.2 software update on Feb. 12, which aims to resolve a batter drain issue experienced by those using a Microsoft Exchange calendar with the device that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery drain, according to the documentation accompanying the update on Apple's support site.

Guess we have to wait around for another software update to come up, while we should stay cautious to prevent our iOS devices falling into others' hands.
