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...

Don't fool yourself that iPhones don't freeze.

'You can set songs from your music library as alarm tones'? LOL! Has it really taken Apple this long to add this feature?

iOS is simple and elegant...i like where it is and i will not compare it to android probably cuz i also use HTC one X at the same time....if iOS takes the android funky step it may loose its elegant for customizations i always JB my phn to mess around with the looks of OS
so iOS nd android they are r different nd i like both of them as for thats what u call boring cuz after experiencing Lumia800 dats what i can say...

Do you remember how 3.5 inches was the 'sweet spot' on mobile phones?

The rest of us will enjoy Widgets on devices, allowing far access to real time data from a number of applications at once.

WOW! Three new wallpapers! Amazing features.
No, not al lot of big improvements. apple is not really catching up with Android. The same holds for the phones.
In my opinion a big disappointment!

Widgets,live wallpapers etc are just useless things....Apple ios is simple and beautiful mobile software i have ever used......The thing which i love about it is that it is fluid,smooth and swift,almost no hiccups.....

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 find it more of a downgrade than an upgrade.
