Why need an Apple IOS6.1 update

I just had my iphone IOS update to version 6.1 today although Apple had released the IOS about a month ago on 28 Jan 2013.
So what we have for this IOS6.1 update? 
Found some KB from Apple site on the IOS6.1
About iOS 6.1 Software Update
This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
>LTE support for more carriers (complete list of supported carriers at www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/)
>Purchase movie tickets through Fandango with Siri (USA only)
>iTunes Match subscribers can now download individual songs from iCloud
>New button to reset the Advertising Identifier
This seems nothing to do with me for the above update but what catch my eyes are the security content as the link HERE or you can read it below. I'd highlighted those with underline the things that caught my eyes and why I am doing the upgrade.


iOS 6.1
Identity Services
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
Impact: Authentication relying on certificate-based Apple ID authentication may be bypassed
Description: An error handling issue existed in Identity Services. If the user's AppleID certificate failed to validate, the user's AppleID was assumed to be the empty string. If multiple systems belonging to different users enter this state, applications relying on this identity determination may erroneously extend trust. This issue was addressed by ensuring that NULL is returned instead of an empty string.
CVE-ID
CVE-2013-0963
 
International Components for Unicode
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to a cross-site scripting attack
Description: A canonicalization issue existed in the handling of the EUC-JP encoding, which could lead to a cross-site scripting attack on EUC-JP encoded websites. This issue was addressed by updating the EUC-JP mapping table.
CVE-ID
CVE-2011-3058 : Masato Kinugawa
 
Kernel
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
Impact: A user-mode process may be able to access the first page of kernel memory
Description: The iOS kernel has checks to validate that the user-mode pointer and length passed to the copyin and copyout functions would not result in a user-mode process being able to directly access kernel memory. The checks were not being used if the length was smaller than one page. This issue was addressed through additional validation of the arguments to copyin and copyout.
CVE-ID
CVE-2013-0964 : Mark Dowd of Azimuth Security
 
Security
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may intercept user credentials or other sensitive information
Description: Several intermediate CA certificates were mistakenly issued by TURKTRUST. This may allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to redirect connections and intercept user credentials or other sensitive information. This issue was addressed by not allowing the incorrect SSL certificates.
 
StoreKit
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
Impact: JavaScript may be enabled in Mobile Safari without user interaction
Description: If a user disabled JavaScript in Safari Preferences, visiting a site which displayed a Smart App Banner would re-enable JavaScript without warning the user. This issue was addressed by not enabling JavaScript when visiting a site with a Smart App Banner.
CVE-ID
CVE-2013-0974 : Andrew Plotkin of Zarfhome Software Consulting, Ben Madison of BitCloud, Marek Durcek
 
WebKit
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later

Apple Ipad support GPS?

Recently my friend and I were chit chatting about driving while travelling and we both agreed that having GPS on device is so important for map navigating. My friend told me that the wifi version of ipad2 I had previously do not support the GPS and only wifi+cellular version of ipad device support GPS. I was shocked. No way. Hence I double check this from the Apples web-site and have this screenshot as below.
Well, you can see from the specs. Seems like what my friend told me is true. All the ipad wifi version do not support GPS. From Ipad mini, ipad2 or ipad with retina display.
So if you plan to purchase the device for the purpose of navigating, get the wifi+cellular version.
What is the GPS means? GPS stands for Global Positioning System. It will be using satellite navigation system to provide location. That means, with this build-in. Even without cellular data or connected to wi-fi, you should still be able to use some navigation application in your device. What you need to do is to ensure two things. (1) your device have this GPS build in. (2) the application you are using support GPS and not just using cellular data for the navigation connections.
So check the specs before you purchase. Good luck.
