Even though it has been just a few hours since the first beta version of iOS 6.1 was released to developers, changes are already being spotted at a fast pace. Some of the modifications are being highlighted by 9to5Mac.
First, Apple is making it much easier for users to report issues with its troubled Maps app. As pictured, in version 6.1, “Report a Problem” has been changed from a small link to a very hard to miss button at the top of the page.
In the beta version, the lock screen music controls have also been modified. Instead of being bunched up fairly close together, the buttons take better advantage of the entire width of the lock screen. That should make the controls much easier to find and push when necessary.
These changes are in addition to the modifications to the Map Kit searching protocols for developers already found earlier today.
Apple also officially rolled out iOS version 6.0.1 today to the public. That update most notably fixes the horizontal line glitch that affected some users. It also improves the Wi-Fi reliability of the iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch when connecting to certain networks.
It can be downloaded directly from your iOS device by going to Settings, General, and then Software Update.
