Wow.! Cant wait to update and possibly loose my Jailbreak over this useless update, since it can still be bypassed -- Said no one, ever. LMAO

What's with the new connector? Now you need a separate adapter and cannot properly "dock" your device and it's still no faster than the USB 2.0 at the other end. Didn't even make it backward compatible with the dock (dual port). How is that "innovation"? Looks like bankruptcy of ideas.

they like to market the design and look of the iPhone/pad/touch, whatever! but where they have completely missed the ball is basic connectivity and media options in my book, it is after all a multimedia device, why should it be so difficult to just add something when i need it, not to have to download an app, or buy this or that, or jailbreak to get the best functionality, i have a galaxy s3 and ipad mini, and to be honest the ipad is DREADFUL, my S3 just eats anything i throw at it, media, books, files, software, games, as soon as a decent tablet comes out my iPad will be sold if not before, only thing is in its favor is the design, it is nice, but thats it

Oh come on don't be ignorant here it's not everyone who has the luxury of a wifi or cheap Internet.
Some people use a weekly or monthly subscription from their operators and you can't tell me that I have to hit the Internet fb email or Dropbox just to send a few items to a friend.
For us on the 3g or 2g network that is nonsense. In other words, no Internet no sharing of files.
Just admit that the bluetooth is a necessity for the iPhone & stop supporting every mistake that Apple makes (micro sd, fm radio, micro-usb)

This is the main reason why I like apple fans, they're satisfied with the features that they've got & give other alternatives for the ones they don't have.
And if (by a strange miracle) they do get something like a larger screen, Micro-sd, bluetooth or fm radio, they support it whole heartedly and label them new features (of course it's new the previous versions didn't have them)
However I do wish that iPhone had the live wall paper, or something similar.
