Apple has acknowledged a Microsoft Exchange bug with iOS 6.1 and says that it will be fixed in an upcoming software update.

When you respond to an exception to a recurring calendar event with a Microsoft Exchange account on a device running iOS 6.1, the device may begin to generate excessive communication with Microsoft Exchange Server. You may notice increased network activity or reduced battery life on the iOS device. This extra network activity will be shown in the logs on Exchange Server and it may lead to the server blocking the iOS device. This can occur with iOS 6.1 and Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 or later, or Microsoft Exchange Online (Office365).

* An exception is a change to a single instance of a repeating calendar event.

Apple has identified a fix and will make it available in an upcoming software update. In the meantime, you can avoid this bug by not responding to an exception to a recurring event on your iOS device. If you do experience the symptoms described above, disable then reenable the Exchange calendar on your iOS device using the steps below.

● Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars
● Select the Exchange account from your Accounts list.
● Turn the switch for Calendars to OFF.
● Wait ten seconds.
● Turn the switch for Calendars back to ON.

unbelivable ... 5 betas and still bugs ... obviously on purpose to render jailbreak useless. If it was Samsung fanboys would be all over to sue. Samsung wins. Again

What about if leaving a few bugs was a strategy to screw "jailbreakers" as they cannot update via OTA witout loosing all of the jailbreak benefits ? I might think evil... maybe they are tought ;-)

I think Apple should get their act together as their is beta's before the final build and they should already beware of these bugs as a lot of developers try out these firmware's before general release of iOS is released- oh I wish “STEVE WAS ALIVE".
