Apple iOS 6 preview: First Look

Apple iOS 6 preview: First Look - read the full textAs expected, Apple used the keynote of its annual WWDC event in San Francisco to announce the latest version of their iOS mobile platform. The sixth major build of the OS aims to bring the user experience to the next level with no less than 200...


Sort by:

- Multitasking is stupid on phones
- 4G is overrated
- 3.5 inches is the perfect screen size, any bigger than that and the phone becomes unusable
- if you use stylus you blew it
- iPad-style tablet computers with smaller 7" screens would be “dead on arrival”

I apologize for that, and if you have facts against Android I would really like to see them, so I can finally agree with you, because so far everything you had said is false, as iOS security is a Joke as well, and if you read the news as you claim then you shall know that every OS has vulnerabilities, of course there are safer OS than others, but the most popular are the most affected by security issues, here goes another fact for you:

One of the security holes from iOS and I can bet you there are a lot more vulnerabilities there in iOS waiting for someone to explode them, so don't come here telling that Android's Security is a "Joke" because we know that there are more Malwares and Exploits for iOS than for Android.

And of course Android is already ahead in the list of OS because of it's functionalities and like you said is a free source OS however get to know that there up to 900,000 Android activations per day, also get to know how Android has began to be prefered over iOS:

Good Luck!
Take Care!

If Android will continue the way it is right now (Open Source) trust me won’t stand against iOS & WP8

I overclock my phone's CPU to add more juice, because i need it, and this is a bad thing. I would rather have no need for overclocking. If you had any reason in that brain of yours, you wouldn't brag about it!

I use Android on a Desire S and my whole experience is based on widgets. Meaning i constantly use 5 widgets on 5 screens. And the battery and ram is not affected. I am telling you this because what you wrote above is highly dependent on the phone you-re using. And it is wrong to assume that a newer phone will surely run faster: a single core 1Ghz with 800Mb Ram can handle a S2, if fitted with a good custom rom. :)

So with this get to know your complains are senseless and of course going other part of your comment you mention that Android devices aren't stable anyhow without rooting, something that is completely false because Original Roms are designed to be stable as possible, in fact the instability in an Android device occurs ONLY when using a non-compatible Rom to flash the device, so please update yourself and do not comment false information as people who might get to read your comment can get confused.

Take my example, I never comment without having facts to support my comment, here is one fact for you:

In the link if you check it you can realize how studies (REAL FACTS) show that Android and it's Apps are entirely more stable than iOS and it's Apps and of course as always my comments are supported by facts as you already saw.

Now I had started to suspect that you are an inexperienced technology user who remains hypnotized by Apple's Marketing and of course we know what this people like to do, they confuse people and like in any other situation they affirm that Apple products are better even when they now is not like that, because let's face it Apple already had it's "era" (moment) and now they had lost their innovation and of course that innovation has gone with Steve Jobs to the grave, and now it's time to let other company to have it's "era" (moment), this is how it works and although it might be sad to see a company like Apple being left old fashion and now hardly innovative it's something that Applefanboys shall accept with the time.

So once we know that you are inexperienced try updating yourself and read the news everyday, GSMARENA has great news about smarphones and tablets everyday, so you could start by checking daily and see what's new about smartphones or tablets and so at least you would now have an idea of what to comment.

Good luck!

I think iOS 6 should have features like bluetooth/nfc file transfer to other platform phones. Also mp3 ringtones, and entire view of iOS 6 should be different, there should be some mighty change....

Good job Apple! you finally managed to put some features which were required years back .. FacTime on cellular, Reject calls with messages, Set Songs on Alarm, Facebook contacts on Phonebook. If Apple continues this strategy of adding missing features it will have an easy way ahead for another decade as there are still a lot of features missing. I think Nokia and Google should now sue Apple back for copying their features.
