Honestly, it's up to you. iOS 6.0.1, 6.0.2 & 6.1 are simply "Hotfix's" to the base iOS 6.0 version.

-Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air-Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
-Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
-Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
-Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
-Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
-Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
-Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
-Adds Finger-Rejection

-Fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi

-Larger "Report a Problem" button in Maps-New music controls on lock screen when you double-press home button
-Siri can now purchase movie tickets via Fandango (USA only)
-LTE now works with several European, African, Asian and American carriers
-Individual songs can once again be downloaded or deleted when using iTunes Match
-An empty Passbook will automatically add a sample pass explaining passbook functionality. The pass text changes slightly for users in British English speaking countries, changing “movie tickets” to “cinema tickets” in the first sentence, and “theaters” to “cinemas” in the last sentence.
-Reset Advertising Identifier button now works.
-New cellular data option for iTunes (it is available from iOS 6.0).
-When setting up an iOS device for the first time with iCloud, it will now ask you to confirm your Apple ID password for FaceTime and iMessages. It will also ask you to confirm how you’d like people to reach you, and tells you that you can change these settings at any time later on.
-Fixed a serious iPhone 5 bug that prevented the phone from reconnecting to the cellular network when it lost connection for an extended amount of time.
