Apple's iOS 6.1.2 Update Not Working for Some Users

Apple's release of iOS 6.1.2, which was designed to fix a calendar glitch working with Exchange 2010, seems to have unleashed problems for some device users.

The release last week was supposed to plug a software problem that caused excessive log activity on Exchange, as well as a battery-drain problem on iOS devices, because of the calendar glitch. Some press accounts have suggested that the patch worked for them on fixing the Exchange problem. However, users of iOS 6.1.2 devices have been filling Apple's support communities page with various complaints. The complaints range from the update not completing to descriptions of the battery-drain problem recurring, or that the sound or vibration features of their devices were knocked out.

At Microsoft's TechNet forums, the comments varied. Some threads suggested that iOS 6.1.2 does not fix the problem with Exchange, while others report seeing no problems after applying the update. Apple apparently hasn't issued any clarification one way or the other.

An iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 release is currently available, but only to registered developers. This beta appears to be designed mostly to patch a security flaw that could allow someone to bypass a device's lockscreen, according to a CNet story.

Microsoft has modified its Knowledge Base support article on the Exchange problem, noting that Apple issued iOS 6.1.2 to fix the problem. The article no longer advises changing the throttling settings on Exchange ActiveSync as one of the proposed workarounds.

It appears that Microsoft's Exchange team sees the issue as primarily a problem with Apple's patching efforts, and not with Exchange ActiveSync (EAS). At least, that's the view advocated by Tony Redmond, a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional on Exchange.

"Even if Microsoft succeeds in making EAS relatively bullet-proof and also takes a more aggressive stance with ActiveSync licensees to make sure that their client code works as well as possible, I suspect that we will still have to be prepared to deal with client-provoked ActiveSync issues in the future (or on an ongoing basis, as some evidence suggests that the Exchange transaction log problem is not quite fixed in iOS 6.1.2)," Redmond wrote in a February 25 blog post.

Redmond has been tracking the glitch in a number of his blog posts. One post points to efforts by fellow Exchange MVP Paul Robichaux to lend Apple some help on Exchange ActiveSync. Robichaux has issued an open letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook, pledging to contribute his expertise to help Apple avoid future problems.

"It's pretty clear that your EAS client team doesn't know how Exchange client throttling works, how to retry EAS errors gently, or all the intricacies of recurring meeting management (and how the server's business logic works)," Robichaux wrote in the letter. "If they did, the client wouldn't behave the way it has."

6.1.2 has messed up my wifi....big time. I have an iPhone 4S, an ipad 2 & my gf has an ipad 2 as well. My ipad is only one with 6.1.2 and the wifi will have zero connection, then 2 bars, then one and so on. My iPhone and gf's ipad have full wifi strength....not happy. Will this be fixed?

Wed, Mar 13, 2013

the update has screwed my phone to.It took out the sound on my phone so now it does not ring,no sms tone or anything,and the 25gb of media i have in my phone cannot be used.My music files still show up on the phone but they are greyed out and i cannot listen to them.I also think i'll be buying a samsung soon because this is not the first time an update has messed up my phone.

Wed, Mar 13, 2013

I have 7 apple products. Was always defending them to anyone who had a bad thing to say about them. Well I may be converted soon If Apple don't get there alleged genius fingers out there useless arses. Update 6.1.2 has killed loads of apps on my iPhone 4. Camera, torch, updates for apps and calls in and out. I'm getting a new phone in 4 weeks. Fix it and fast or it won't be 8 Apple products and the others will be on eBay to make way for all Android products.

How big in mb or gb is the iOS 6.1 Software Update? I tried donloading onto my phone at a free wi-fi cafe yesterday and it said I need 2.5 gb of free space on phone to download it. My home computer can only download 350 mb per day. Is the update 8 gb or 8 mb?? Sounds like it is not even worth the trouble to download?

Wed, Mar 13, 2013 COREY Canada

Sounds like not go idea to download iOS 6.1 Software Update. I tried yesterday yet my phone needs 2.5 gb of free space to download it. I was going to download it only at home through my laptop yet I can only download 350 mb per day. I was told the update is 8 gb in size or is it 8 mb?? Sounds like should not even donload the iOS 6.1 Software Update if I could anyways since so many people say it screwed up there Iphone. Am I right?

I loved my iPhone 5 till I updated it to 6.1.2 now it won't down load a simple video. It is slower than my old 4. Apple is really a big disappointment!!! I've stuck up for them for several years but I have to admit it's gotten old!!!

Mon, Mar 11, 2013 Peter Nigeria

Updating my Iphone4 with ios 6.1.2 was a huge mistake! It's been almost a week now & the update issue remains unresolved: can't use my phone, can't roll-back, can't move on! If I ever have to use an Apple product again hereafter, I will think twice before using its updates....

Mon, Mar 11, 2013

After updating my iPad 2 to ios 6, I learned that all updates are not created equal! We stopped our daughter from updating her iPad to ios 6, once we discovered how much we lost by doing so. Many times, we updated an app, only to find that it was better before the update. Now, we don't update apps, or iPads, or iPhones if they are working fine. Updates only mess things up! I'm thankful for all these comments that confirm that we are right about this!

Mon, Mar 11, 2013

Its seriously disgusting. Not able to get network signal. If i use my SIM, on another Iphone, it works!!!! If i use another working SIM on my iphone, it does not work either!! Tried restoring Iphone twice but no success... Its pathetic...

After the update when I'm on a call it will switch from FaceTime to speaker to keypad- over and over- the call goes in and out, impossible to continue the conversation at that point so I hang up and try again. Doesn't happen every call- but it happens very often

Since updating iPad 2 to 6.1.2 i lost ALL of my photos and videos. I cannot connect to iTunes Store when updating apps. Also battery is draining quicker than before. What's up with that Apple???

I NEED this phone to work!!!!!! My business, like most people is dependent on the ability to contact clients via mobile. FIX IT NOW you over educated, over payed, idiots! I would fire every single one of you, I still might. I'm going to buy stock in Samsung, because I'm pretty sure their stock is about to skyrocket after this.

Mac. iPod. iPhone. iPod. Long ago, the four devices are working perfectly fine. Then, everything changed when the update 6.1.2 came out. Only Steve Jobs, master of all four devices, could fix them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.

Thu, Mar 7, 2013 Cher Dunbar Las Vegas

I updated my iphone5 to the 6.1.2 and now all the features on my car do not work anymore when I am trying to play the music from my iphone throught he USB plug-in. Wish Apple would get the $hit together.

I updated my ipod and now it doesnt want to turn on it flashes the apple logo on and off what do i do?

Wed, Mar 6, 2013 Michael Ireland

I was happy to update my phone to IOS6,took a while for it to be available to me,awaiting patiently but eager to use the new software,as I find out not too long after,my sound on the headset does not work. Funny enough it works with my speaker .I rang up apple and were very eager to help me. Did master reset,reset the phone to a brand new phone etc etc. Then the phone reversed the problem, now I can only use my earphones to use my phone. Is there any final solution? Im really close to abandoning apple products as now I can't update my 1st generation iPad. I only got the iPhone last summer. Can anyone help before I give up on apple products??

Wed, Mar 6, 2013

the new update screwed me a lot here i come samsung

Wed, Mar 6, 2013 Michael Gav New Jersey

Updated to 6.1.2 on my daughters iPhone 4S and now phone is constantly dropping service. It will have 4 bars of signal, drop to 1 bar and then show no service. My wife's iPhone 4, also running on 6.1.2 holds a steady 4 to 5 bars of signal sitting right next to the 4s. I have taken the 4s to AT&T twice, and apple store twice. Each time different answer. SIM card not sitting right, SIM card replaced, software glitch and reinstalled firmware. All to no avail. Still having signal issues. My daughter told me she began having cell signal and wifi related signal issues right after the software upgrade. Well I guess after googling the issue, she is right. This software updated has caused a signal issue that was not there before. Can't someone please just admit it, change out the radios to the 6.1.1 and update the phones. I'm tired of the run around and multiple trips to fix something they can't. If its not a hardware issue fix the software please.

Wed, Mar 6, 2013

Ater I updated to 6.1.2, all my songs, notes, ringtones and several apps were gone. Most of which I could restore. WiFi seems very slow now. Nice going Apple.

Wed, Mar 6, 2013

I update my IPad thinking thank god there's an update but then my iPad goes dead and when I listen to music I can't anymore because it scrolls down the songs in seconds thanks apple

Wed, Mar 6, 2013 Kieran England

This updated totally screwed my wifi on my iPhone 4S... The wifi button is disabled and cannot turn on... Did a total retore of the phone and it didn't help! Phone is 13 months old and the apple store said they could only fix it if I paid another £140... I told them to get bent as I paid £500 for this useless brick as it is... Get your act together apple.. I will never buy another one of your products... Your worse than Microsoft... Samsung here we come!!!

Wed, Mar 6, 2013

New update really screwed up my phone. It shuts down at 47% and the drained battery screen appears, when I plug it into the charger, it starts charging at 47%. Apple, please fix this ASAP!!!

Wed, Mar 6, 2013 maajid

i happily and hurriedly updated my new 4s to fix the battery draining problem but very strangely it worsened the problem. now I have to charge the phone twice a day with a very normal usage before this update it lasted 48 hrs. easily . what a performance of apple. why should we not shift to Samsung.

Wed, Mar 6, 2013

Updated my IPad three on iso 6.1.2 and now my wifi stops working every few minutes until I go to settings and turn it off and back on again. Please need fix urgently......

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

The I o s 6.1.2 totally screwed up my battery life I used to go all day with my phone and have 30-40 % left over at the end of the day and now I have to charge my phone 3-4 times a day I phoned apple and for a $ 35.00 charge they may be able to help me . I wonder if apple shares are hurting and this could be a new way to generate some money . Just wondering

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

Many problems since installing IOS 6.1.2 on my Iphone5. Hangs up, no response, must do hard reboot (Home+Power). Also, lock screen wallpaper now using album artwork, not the pic defined in settings. Really disappointed in Apple on this update, and I waited until X.1.2 before even trying to update.

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

I updated to 6.1.2 and before I was able to charge and sync my iphone 3gs no problem. Updated software and now I can't connect my iphone to itunes and the battery drains. So, I can't use my laptop to charge my phone anymore.

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

I updated and now my iPhone 5 will not connect with the bluetooth in my Jeep. Called Chrysler and was told to go to Apple store and have them reset iphone to 6.0 0r 6.1. Apple store said they can't go backwards and that it was Chrysler's problem. NOT A HAPPY CAMPER!!!!

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

Updated last week 2-28-13 but only started having battery problems yesterday 3-4-13. 100% charge is 0% within 3 hours with NO USE.

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

Can't update apps after upgrading to iOS 6.1.2. Fix this problem please ASAP!!!

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

Updated my iPad 3 ( which was working FINE!) to iOS 6.1.2 and now 100% battery lasts 3 hours max. I use my iPad all the time for Internet and email (no videos) and it latest for days before. Now I cannot take it with me when I am on the road as I cannot charge the battery on a train or then plane so Apple you need to find a fix ASAP as it isn't fit for purpose on this version.

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

After updating to 6.1.2, it seemed to fix my Exchange 2010 issue, but the biggest issue I've had since is that the App Store updates aren't available. It shows that there is an update available, but when going into the App Store and going to the updates screen, it doesn't show which apps need to be updated

Tue, Mar 5, 2013

The 6.1.2 update totally screwed the battery on my 4S, as well as on my boyfriend's 4. My battery will read, say, 65%, and then suddenly be down to 25%. Plug it in, and it's up to 70+% within a minute. Please come up with a fix to this, Apple, because it's a gigantic pain in the ass.

Charger not working due to updating to 6.1.2 The happened the last time on my phone Now it's affected my I-pad

Mon, Mar 4, 2013 OneMadDad Oklahoma

Did the update on my sons phone 1 wk ago, killed the phone basically, it wanted to be connected to ITunes afterwards- my son never once loaded iTunes, had to load it then connect his phone to do a recovery... No recovery - black screened with the Apple logo in the middle and had words of text all over screen - go to ATT =- we can't fix it Apple won't let us.... go to apple store (miles away)- Apple says well you have obviously jail broken this 4 month old phone, so you have no warranty, we can't (I mean) WON'T help you... SAY WHAT? We argued with up to 4 people... we never jail broke this phone well where did you buy it? It must have come jail broken... uh we bought it from ATT 4 months ago, it came in the came mail directly form apple we assumed... Well who is using the phone, my 13 yr old son... Oh well there you go, he jail broke the phone... Hold up there, thats a nice accusation you make there not knowing my son, or even looking for any evidence of other cause to this problem, namely their mucking update! Arguing with 1 mgr, 2 techs and 1 ATT mgr in the middle of the Apple Store in OKC = EFFING PRICELESS!!!!- THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS SHOCKINGLY and BLATANTLY PISS POOR. I am considering paying the money to cancel both of my kids phones entirely and move them to simple texting "go phones" - well maybe I will jail break my daughters for her my damn self so she can still enjoy the piece of crap phone for a few more months yet... NAH! I hope like hell we can prove they have really screwed the pooch with broken crap ware... and start a class action lawsuit. They basically called my wife and I liars regarding this stupid jailbreaking thing. We bought the phone from ATT to use on ATT what is the mucking point of jail breaking? I am not using that phone any where but who it was bought from. Apple I think I will short your stock, your going no where but down from here!

6.1.2 update killed my battery.... What a joke update that was.

Mon, Mar 4, 2013 Bill

Absolutely ZERO issues with 6.1.2 on my iPad 3 or iPhone 5. I have seen no reduction in battery life whatsoever, so whatever the issue is it's not universal.

Mon, Mar 4, 2013 Nicos Nicosia, Cyprus

My 4s was working perfectly until ios 6. Battery drain is dramatic. Apple does'nt seem to care. Updates do actually nothing but create more problems. Is this the Apple standard of support??

Mon, Mar 4, 2013

good thing I didn't update my ipad.anyway, how can i delete the update notification then?

So glad to read that I'm not the only one whose iPad is a complete wreck after the update?!? Keeps saying no Internet connection yet wifi is working on all other devices, apps are closing out, email just spins while trying to download. Why is it that these updates are supposed t fix the problems yet it only creates more? So disappointed in Apple right now!!!

Sun, Mar 3, 2013

Just updated to 6.1.2 on iPhone 5 and regretted it immediately. After the update, the phone would not recognise tthe SIM card that had been in the phone for the past 6 months, and would continue to search for a network. Tried reset (Network Settings, and then All Settings), restoring the the phone, removing and replacing the SIM card, switchong Airplane mode ON and OFF.......nothing helps.

Sun, Mar 3, 2013

The 6.1.2 update really messed up my phone when the download was close to done it messed up my IPhone 4 and now I can't access anytime.

Sat, Mar 2, 2013

The new update ruined my ipad 2 network connection. I tried all of the apple suggestions for fixing my connection problems.Every other device works perfectly with my home wifi. For a day and half I have sporadic connections, either it finds my network but won't allow me to connect. Or I don't even get a list of networks available. One minute ago I Was connected, seconds later was dropped yet again. Writing this from my droid phone... I am hoping Trip to apple store fixes problem, since there is no online support

Sat, Mar 2, 2013 Vince Melbourne

Since upgrading to IOS 6.1.2 by phone spends more time charging than working. The battery goes flat in two thirds of the time, it has to be charges every 4 hours! This phone is useless to me now!!

Sat, Mar 2, 2013 U.K

I updated my iphone 4 to IOS 6.1.2, what a mistake! After two years of totally trouble free use, my phone is dead! iTunes doesn't identify it when connected, it won't power up, or reset using any of the suggested methods on any of the forums. I have tried everything to no avail and it all went wrong after downloading this rubbish update! Thanks Apple!!! I have always been a fan of their products (also own Mac computer, iphone 3gs and ipad 4) but having read everyone's issues over this I think an android phone may be where my hard earned cash is going this time!

Sat, Mar 2, 2013 Lucie Uk

This iOS 6.1.2 update is bloody awful I fully charge my phone and within an hour of unplug its down to 80%!! I've been going all around my phone trying to delete things and change settings thinking its something on my phone but nope it's this sad excuse of a update....sort it out!!!!!

Sat, Mar 2, 2013 Ben Dover fuming mad

1. I have to reset my entire phone, twice to date, to be able to up date Apps. I Now have 11 apps to be updated and am not going through the ball ache of uninstalling and reinstalling again. Using iOS 6.1.2. 2. The iPhone 5 cannot hold the WiFi signal. I am lying in bed, Wireless router is 5 meters away, signal goes to 1 bar and then loses it.

Sat, Mar 2, 2013

I updated my iPhone 4 to the dreaded 6.1.2 and now I have no sound. My first iPhone and already having troubles. Please save us all from this bad update apple!!

My iPhone 5 on iOS 6.1.2 also has no sound from the external speaker. Headphones work, phone calls (not on speakerphone) work, nothing from the external speaker. Toggling the Do Not Disturb function has not worked, neither have any other fixes I've heard, such as hard resets, disabling changing the volume with the side buttons, etc. The only thing I haven't tried is restoring the phone, because I refuse to have to restore my phone because of an Apple screw-up. I am hopeful 6.1.3 will resolve this, but if it doesn't come soon, I may just restore .....

Sat, Mar 2, 2013

After updating to iOS 6.1.2, my 4S no longer syncs with Exchange it simply downloads everything. If I delete emails from my PC or webmail from the Exchange account, they don't ever get removed from my iPhone.

Fri, Mar 1, 2013

after updating to 6.1.2 my iphone5 heats up quickly!

Fri, Mar 1, 2013 Smashke2

This iOS 6.1.2 is really bad. Battery drains fast on mu iPhone 4S and I have no sounds, from time to time. Apple wake up and show us that was just a mistake... Otherwise we are obliged to change to...

Fri, Mar 1, 2013 Frank west

It won't even download for me

Fri, Mar 1, 2013

The hard reset button on my iphone 5 refuses to budge even after holding it down for more than 10 seconds. And I am pretty sure this happens only after the upgrade to 6.1.2. Thankfully the Accessibility "Lock Screen" option enables me to turn it off. But what do I do when there's a need to power off completely?? And I don't buy the story that this is a hardware problem cos the button was fine for the last 6 months. Not unless Apple admits that this is a flimsy piece of hardware.

Thu, Feb 28, 2013 Levi

My ipod touch 5th gen is only 8 weeks old. Never had a problem until I did the 6.1.2 update. Now I have all kinds of problems. My artist list under genre used to be in alfabetical order, now its not and artist is nowhere to be found. Instead it put album titles in alfabetical order. My buttons have not been responding well at all to my touching them to open certain windows. My ipod is not charging some of the time and my battery for some reason is draining like I have bluetooth on....I'm so angry. I'm completely finished with Apple products! Apple told me on the phone they will let their specialts know and that there was nothing they could do for me. All I want is for them to fix it or replace it...its 8 weeks old people!!!

Thu, Feb 28, 2013 Joseph Elwell

I have a workaround for the no sounds problem. I wasn't getting sounds for text messages, rings, etc - despite my preferences. Turn ON "Do Not Disturb" then turn it OFF. Toggling it worked for me.

Thu, Feb 28, 2013

Updated my iPad and iPhone, now it just keeps searching for everything. Takes forever, just draining the battery. Never did this before the update to 6.1.2

Thu, Feb 28, 2013

I love reading about all your troubles. Next time buy a real phone not a toy. I've had my Note 2 for a week and have not had one hint of a problem. Maybe you will get half the features I have in the next release, probably not, but you can hope. Congrats on the real 4g finally. Had that on my EVO 4g almost 3 years ago.

This update ruined the songs I purchased from Itune store. It makes my phone display the artwork but it flicks between the songs and does not play. These songs play on Itune on the Imac but will not play and just flickers between artworks when you select one of them?!I go to the individual artist and again it flickers between the other songs artwork but does not play. Some times it just sits there and mocks me...no sound! :-( This has never happened before the IOS 6.1.2! :-( Is it coincidental or something has gone wrong with the last 12 songs I purchased. Oh and I turned the phone off and on again. I also reset it back to 07.02 just to be on the safe side...nothing changed! :-( HELP!!

Thu, Feb 28, 2013 CT NYC

I have an iPhone for and 6.1.2 is TERRIBLE. Exchange times out and won't provide emails for hours (terrible for someone who relies on mobile access). While it's attempting to check for emails it spirals and gives up. This drains my battery and I am left with my phone charging next to my laptop. This is NOT AT ALL ACCEPTABLE.

The update 6.1.2 CURSEWORDED my iPod now every time I go online to a website like Google MSN or even this one it redirects me to the app store saying an Ad tracking website is doing the redirection. When I called Apple Support she told me to close all the open web pages then go back online and see if I am still having the problem. Of course I am not having the problem now because you just told me to close all my web pages. How much smarts does it take to understand that and what kinda training do you need to work for Apple Support? Then she asked me for my serial number from my iPod saying we need it to see what kinda device you have. I said I told you what kinda device i have it's an iPod Touch well we still need the serial number because we need to look you up in the system it may be a networking problem so we need to see what kinda CURSEWORDED device you are working with. Then I told her no thank you! We all no the only reason they want to know that CURSEWORDED number is so they can see iffen you still have Apple Care insurance because unlike the Asus tablet they can't help you iffen you are Apple Careless. Thinking about switching all my devices to Androids, and Apple can kiss my CURSEWORD!

This update screwed my phone too. I now can't sync with my comp, purchase, update my apps because for some reason it now views my phone as US phone. My apple Id of course connects to the Canadian store because I'm in Canada. I now have 30 apps I can't update. Nor can I sync my calendar, contacts... Nothing. I'm furious. I called Apple and they said I have to buy a $249 tech package for them to fix it. Really? I didn't make this issue! My brand damn new iphone5 worked PERFECTLY prior to this garbage update. So pissed.

Updated my iPad 3 to 6.1.2 and now it's always searching for mail, but lot loading it. I have to reboot to get it to load, and sometimes that doesn't do it. Wifi ???? Or what? Did not have this problem before the update. 6.1.2 Sucks.......................
