iOS 6.1.2 : fixes Exchange calendar bug, battery drain, passcode flaw

Apple has released yet another iOS update, iOS 6.1.2, to address a few lingering issues still haunting some iOS 6.1 and 6.1.1 users. The iterative update includes fixes an Exchange calendar bug, which in turn also solves the greatly decreased battery life experienced by some iPhone and iPad owners. 

Apple’s Software Update claims only a single improvement made by iOS 6.1.2: “Fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life.”

While this is welcome news to many users, what’s missing from this description is another rather major change: a fix for the passcode security flaw introduced in iOS 6.1. Although absent from the release notes, various news outlets are reporting 6.1.2 silently resolves the passcode bypass bug.
