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, donít 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...

Best feature: siri on ipad 3 & fb integration.

They made it very prone to scratches then after a few months, they'll sell a new iPhone and call it revolutionary.

Apple never had a creative self, they had an observation room for looking at other people's work.

I would call Apple users Retro

Like when you drive a 1970s cool retro car, was great in it's day but now it's really just reminiscing

There is a picture of the iphone4 4S and iphone5. They all look Identical. Thanks Apple, you nearly got me there!! but you have just made Samsung, HTC, Motorola , Sony, LG and all the rest of Android phones out there look rally really fantastic now!! Made up my mind! No boring dull nothing new Apple for me - thatís for sure

i like the new iOS6 i think its step forward of improvements and i dont know what is the fuss with the people who requesting change in design and bigger size, people walking around with giant monsters in their pants (if U know what i mean) and makes me wonder whats the future here. for example: if S3 is 4.8 Inch so whats S4 would be 5 inch or maybe more thats not size of a phone in my opinion i think the improvements should be in technology not design and thatís what Apple try to achieve

Bored with both android and apple stuffing the same-old things into different shapes. Can somebody bring something new please? Where is the creativity from these people?

Though I love Apple's device design, I for one hate the look of the iOS itself. It's overly rounded, glass-shiny, candy "fit-every-taste" looks make me want to puke every time I see it. The pure, clear simplicity of vanilla Android ICS or JB is a perfect fit for me and although I'm on Touch Wiz I still favour the stock looks.
Apple, don't be afraid of straight lines and square corners! Setting yourself those rounded frame barriers you just limit your designers' creativity. On the other hand, this makes a handful of users sick of the product, sick enough to want to change the whole of it. That's how new art gets born and more art is never a bad thing.

WiFi issues for thousands of users... anyone else experiencing this problem? seems related to WPA2 encryption.
nobody is sure whether this is a hardware or iOS issue..I would rather prefer the latter and hope for an upate soon!

it is natural when you got lost when navigating using iOS 6.. there are two solutions "Lost Mode" and "Find my Friends".

"You can say that while Android has caught up in terms of user experience with its Project Butter, iOS is trailing behind in terms of functionality."

when i've written a line with similar meaning, some iUsers said that i'm delusional but somehow when u said it, no1 say anything.... but it's good to know that my statement was nvr wrong! ^_^
