Android may be stealing all the glory in the India market, but for Apple fanboys and girls, there really is no other option when it comes to choosing a smartphone. The latest software update, in the form of the iOS 6.1, seeks to improve on the already existing software performance and bug fixes, and is now available for installation.

Apple's marketing chief Philip Schiller says, "iOS 6 is the world's most advanced mobile operating system, and with nearly 300 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices on iOS 6 in just five months, it may be the most popular new version of an OS in history. iOS 6.1 brings LTE support to more markets around the world, so even more users can enjoy ultrafast Safari browsing, FaceTime video calls, iCloud services, iTunes and App Store downloads."

Vijeyta Shah, 25, a lawyer, says, "I had been waiting for quite a while for this update. Though most of the fixes aren't
