I ditched my iPhone about 3 months ago and have no plans to turn back.  But in the event that you’re still championing Apple’s smartphone, you might want to know that the company released iOS 6.1.

By no accounts is this a massive update or one that will really have an impact on your day-to-day iPhone life.  Nevertheless, if you live in an area that didn’t previously support LTE on the iPhone 5, good news, because odds are now it does.  To quote Apple, “LTE support for more carriers (Apple previously announced that it would add more LTE carriers this week). 36 additional iPhone carriers. 23 additional iPad carriers.”  Additional updates include the ability to buy tickets through Fandango via Siri (US only), download individual songs from your iTunes Match account, and some “New button to reset the Advertising Identifier”.  Lastly, Apple has now made Bluetooth keyboards compatible with Apple TV.

The update, for those on the iPad or iPhone, should be available over the air.  Just head to Settings>General>Software Update.  If it hasn’t appeared yet, be patient, it will arrive probably before end of the day.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
