iOS 6.1.3 fixes passcode bypass bug, improves Maps in Japan

iOS 6.1.3 is ready for download through the Software Update mechanism in iOS or through iTunes. Apple says changes include a fix for the bug that enabled users to bypass the passcode lock and access the phone app, and improvements to the Maps app in Japan.
