TVs and receivers that support only IT video format no longer allow RGB High to be selected in Settings > Audio & Video > HDMI Output. If such a TV or receiver was set to RGB High before this update, another value will be used instead.
In iOS 6.0 and later, Core Image introduced new filters to the set provided in iOS 5. The complete set of filters can be found in Core Image Filter Reference.
Also in iOS 6.0 and later, Core Image allows for the creation of CIImage objects that reference OpenGL texture objects via the imageWithTexture:size:flipped:colorSpace: method.
FIXED: In iOS 6.1 beta 2, you will not be able to upgrade or downgrade your iCloud storage (5 GB is free). As a workaround, please use either the latest OS X or a device running iOS 6.0.

iOS 6.0 introduced a five-row Thai keyboard and removed the previous four-row keyboard. In iOS 6.1, both the five-row and the four-row Thai keyboards are available.
In iOS 6.1, the Map Kit framework introduces the MKLocalSearch, MKLocalSearchRequest, and MKLocalSearchResponse classes. Apps can use these classes to perform map-based searches for addresses and points of interest. The results are then delivered to the app as an array of map item objects. For information about these new classes, see Map Kit Framework Reference.
As of iOS 6.1, the relevance behavior has changed for boarding passes that include both a relevant date and a relevant location. The date must match for these passes to be relevant. If both the date and location match, they are relevant for a longer window of time. You are encouraged to provide both pieces of information when they make sense for your passes.
In iOS 6.1, a new Reset Advertising Identifier button has been added to Advertising Settings. This button resets the Advertising Identifier so that future requests will return a different value.
This release does not support testing In-App Purchase in iOS Simulator. For apps that use this feature, please test on a device.
Weibo shows up in the Settings app only if a Chinese keyboard is enabled.
When using the iOS 6.1 SDK on OS X v10.8 (Mountain Lion), if you use the iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.1 “Legacy SDK” in iOS Simulator, you will not be able to sign in to Twitter via the Settings pane and Twitter.framework will not work correctly. If you need to test Twitter features, you will need to choose either the iOS 6.1 or iOS 6.0 Simulator run destination or test with iOS 5.x on a device. These problems do not occur when running Simulator on OS X v10.7 (Lion).
NSString drawing additions and UILabel do not support NSTextAlignmentJustified or NSTextAlignmentNatural text alignments. Instead, use NSAttributedString drawing additions, which do support text alignments.
