As expected, Apple is cooking up a minor update for iOS 6 to fix a handful of issues that cropped up in the initial public release in September.
Boy Genius Report reported that iOS 6.0.1 is currently undergoing testing with a number of carrier partners, with a planned release in the "coming weeks". Following that, the news site said that Apple's working on iOS 6.1, which it confusingly claims will be ready to go in time for the iPad Mini's rumoured release early next month.
Among the reported bug fixes in iOS 6.0.1:
Improved Wi-Fi support
Camera flash sometimes not going off when photos are taken
Fix for horizontal lines appearing on the keyboard
A bug with Microsoft Exchanges meetings getting cancelled
A bug affecting cellular data, and cellular data used with iTunes Match
An issue with Passbook security via the lock screen.
As a frame of reference, it took Apple a little under a month to release iOS 5.0.1 following the release of iOS 5 last October. The release brought mostly bug and security fixes, though it also added multi-tasking gestures for original iPad users. The jump to iOS 5.1, which reworked the camera application on the iPad and increased the size limit for over-the-air app downloads, came about four months later.
