Apple iOS 6 review: Moving forward - read the full textThe next iOS version has never been as big a deal as upgrades to Android or Windows. If it ain't broke, don’t fix it, must've been the line of thinking and it's up to you to replace broke with fragmented or catching up, as needed...

The iOS6 is truly amazing but the main disadvantage abt is that it has removed Youtube app that used to be only for apple and the new app is not as good as the old one ! :(

I love my iPhone and the iOS6, its definitely far more easy and superb than the buggy android and WP7...

Thanks Steve not for the product but for the awesome experience you provide each time.

iOS 6 is rubbish do not upgrade.
Maps are crap
The App Store update is horrible
For some reason my screen is now duller and when I unlock my phone the screen slowly increases in brightness. Really annoying as it can take a couple of seconds to see your screen. What was the point in that.
For some reason apps (even my flashlight) seem much slower to respond
Yet to find any positive improvement.

Whatever Android have, that iOS don't, well.. I do not use those features. Widgets? They turn my Samsung S2 so hot that you can make dinner on the back of the phone. Task manager? I do not need to see whatever is running on my phone as long as the OS i stable. Or let's say it like this: a feature Samsung has added and Apple has not: possibility to remove battery. Thank god my Samsung has this option

I feel like apple was stealing all new features from android so GsmArena your conclusion should have been " Apple just follows the new updates of android, as they dont have innovative ideas" Nothing more!

> In reply to Tim @ 2012-09-28 06:01 from y$gR - click to readIts a true thing.. In the beginning when Nokia decided to go with WP7 instead of Meego, I was the first the bash that decision to the moon and back. It seemed stupid (and in fact it was), assuming that the end result of the switch was just WP7. However, I have to say that WP8 is looking like a real contender now. To me what makes it impressive is the fact that both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 use variants of the same OS kernel.
What it means is that apps will be cross compatible in both the desktop and mobile spaces. I can only assume that directX 10 and all the other Windows goodies will be supported as well. Its a surprisingly intelligent move because it leverages Microsoft's dominance in the desktop space. Its bound to create a trickle down effect in the long term, boosting its adoption rates by default through association with Windows 8. That's really the key to its "Dark Horse" status because its a potential game changer (if they can pull it off).
iOS is clearly under-threat, they just don't know it yet. Android could potentially be as well too, but because the Android developement ecosystem is so vibrant (not stagnant like iOS) its effect in the long term for Android is uncertain.

Needless to say.. WP8 is set to do something in the mobile space..
