Tuesday, January 29, 2013 @ 12:43pm
| While not listed in the official release notes, the iOS 6.1 update included a small change to Passbook that makes it easier to find Passbook-enabled apps. Previously, launching Passbook for the first time would present users with a welcome screen that listed Passbook apps with links for downloading each. However, this screen would disappear after a single Passbook app was downloaded. In iOS 6.1 this welcome screen has become a permanent inclusion and can be found listed below other Passbook cards.
