Apple releases iOS 6 update

Apple released an update to its mobile operating system Thursday, aiming to fix several bugs.

According to Apple, the latest version of iOS 6 will fix problems that caused horizontal lines to appear on Apple device keyboards, prevented the iPhone 5 from installing over-the-air updates and prevented the camera flash from going off.
