Finally, after a small but painful waiting period Apple has released the third version of its iOS 6.1 firmware. The iOS 6.1.3 is now available for download for Apple users, who have been waiting for it in order to get a fix for the passcode bug.
With the release of its two beta versions, it was pretty clear that the iOS 6.1.3's primary object was to bring in a fix for the passcode bug in the Apple devices running on iOS 6.1 or iOS 6.1.2. However, the iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 did bring in news that no iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owner would like to hear. The iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 patched the recently found evasi0n jailbreak.
The iOS 6.1.3 also improves the iOS Maps application in the iDevices. Apple recently improved its iOS Maps for Japan with a number of enhanced features.
The iOS Maps for Japan got following features:
The other reported improvements are as follows:
We are hoping that iOS 6.1.3 will bring some of these improvements in other parts of the world also.
The iOS 6.1.3 update makes your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad un-downgradable and you will never be able to go back to the earlier firmware. As it is confirmed now that the iOS 6.1.3 patches the evasi0n untethered jailbreak, at least for now, you have got a decision to make between the passcode bug fix and the jailbreak.
If you want to stick to your jailbroken device, you got to stay away from the iOS 6.1.3 update.
The update is available over the air (OTA), and it can also be installed via iTunes. Although there is nothing wrong in OTA update, it is always recommended you install all the updates by connecting your device to your PC.
This is the first time Apple has released a firmware update that is different for every supported devices.
Here are the download links for all the iOS 6.1.3 supported devices:
