Apple has just released iOS 6.1.3 (Build: 10B329) for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

According to the release notes, iOS 6.1.3 fixes the Lock screen bug and also brings improvements to Maps in Japan.

Here’s the release notes:

This update contains improvements and other bug fixes including:

– Fixes a bug that could allow someone to bypass the passcode and access the Phone app
– Improvements to Maps in Japan

Jailbreakers should avoid upgrading your iOS device to iOS 6.1.3, as the evad3rs dev team has confirmed that evasi0n won’t work with it.

Jailbreakers should also take a backup of the SHSB blobs for iOS 6.1.2 using TinyUmbrella before Apple stops signing iOS 6.1.2 firmware file, if you haven’t jailbroken your iOS device with evasi0n yet.

It looks like the update is being rolled out to all the servers as it is currently available via OTA update for only some users. We’ll update the post with the direct download links as soon as they’re available.
