iOS 6 was a big improvement over the previous iOS release (not counting map issues). But it has not been without bugs. Apple has already patched a few things in the software already. With the release of iOS 6.1.3 beta to developers, it seems Apple has fixed the lock screen security flaw. This is only for developers at this point, so we will have to wait a bit before it is released to the public. If you have jailbroken your phone with Evasi0n, you may want to wait to see whether this upcoming update makes the hack useless.
Apple has been dominating the tablet market with the iPad. While Android devices are on the rise, the iPad still has a huge market share. We have already reported on Apple’s plans to release an iPad Mini 2 with Retina display. The iPad 5 is going to make its debut later this year too. According to Taiwan-based Trendforce, the new iPad 5 will debut in the third quarter of 2013:
Firstly, for the improvement on product design itself, the next generation of iPad will apply the thin GF2 touch module of the same level as iPad mini and use the narrow bezel panel design to solve the issue of larger volume, thickness, and weight that have been criticized to gain a better balance for consumers in mobility and visual experiences
Apple may even be able to drop its production costs. We highly doubt the company would pass the savings to consumers if that happened. The iPad 5 may become Apple’s top tablet in a few months but the iPad Mini 2 should remain just as popular.
