When in fact the jailbreaking community proved that older iphones can run those "iphone 5 exclusive" changes pretty well

Oh, and for those who say that iPhone had no updates in iOS 6 and say the SGS3 is so amazing, Check out this list of 50 things the iPhone 5 has that the SGS3 doesn't and then tell me about no innovation.

What bugs are these? I've not had any problems at all since I bought the iPhone 5 3 weeks ago, and none of the bugs in the changelog???

Flash, Keyboard, just about everything has been fine!

there are a lot of bugs with IOS6.. I myself experienced this. can someone tell me how to downgrade from IOS6 to IOS5. I need to bring the old os version of my IPOD touch. I have nothing against apple, it just that what they have been telling about IOS6 (200 updates and best OS) is a lie. I did not see any improvement.

Lets be honest iOS updates are rubbish, the last one that bought anything decent was iOS 4 with multitasking, imessage for ipod and ipad, wallpapers and facetime. Buu the multitasking had serious consequences on battery life, wallpapers were just wallpapers but were seriously hyped up by apple, and facetime was a rip on skype which failed. iOS 5 brought SIRI which turned out to be rubbish and Google Voice is so much better. iOS 6 brought us maps which were worse than google and a load of bugs which apple dont admit too. Instead of saying, there are many bugs, they say, were improving what is already perfect. Apple also sues companies just because they see them as competition, Samsung, and look at them, the Galaxy s3 outsold the iphone and looks so much better, apple is a designer brand, expensive but terrible, android ranges for cheap and bad to expensive and amazing.

By the same token, panorama shot has been been available on android for nearly 2 years, and facetime been available as video calls and through skype, viber, etc for much longer. So it's also shame on Apple then huh....?!

Google copied Microsoft, and it's actually advertising photosphere. Shame on Google.

Typical apple with their incremental trivial "updates" with "200 new features". Maybe something similar to google's photosphere will arrive at ios9 and by then, apple will call it revolutionary. Haha

Lol android updates ( as proven by gsmarena) are so major and with a. High level of smoothness and better battery life in jellybean , while ios 6 called an update did not bring anything other than downgrading and issues and now needs fixes , it shows how much apple worked very speedy without paying attention on ios 6 and iPhone 5 for money only and it was full of bugs as seen now! Lol , wp has major updates , android has major updates , ios has 2007 new style lol
