Im hearing all these people say "Apple copied that", no "Android copied this..." as Picasso said and was quoted from Jobs "Good artists copy, great artists steal"
It seems like its getting more and more obvious each year that iOS sucks. Most of the 'new' features are either already present on other phones or useless. FaceTime over data would prolly get the same result as other video-calling smartphone- sucky, blurry quality. Face it iFans Apple is losing to Android/Samsung. That's why Apple keeps suing Samsung and everyone. GALAXY S III is far more superior than iDevice can ever be. Oh, even S2 is much much better.
No bluetooth ftp, custom ringtunes, NFC, removable batt., Memory card, hdmi support, but men apple will still sell millions. The world is crazy.
ios is too far behind Symbian that employed "reply with sms" 4years before in Nokia handset. How can it be a smartphone? smart should serve all the needs of users with no limitations. However, let see how smart is ios6
AnonD-619, 12 Jun 2012you knw what? android fans r the most pathetic as their sluggish OS...always complaining ooh l... morehey who is copy cat... apple is copy cat... the many features introduced in IOS6 is copied from android...now they buy patent rights and they wil say that no one other mobile should have facebook integration...funny...
I agree with the common thread, the iOS is boring at this point and lacks any innovation whatsoever. The limitations of the OS are starting to surface as the other platforms continue to improve exponentially. There's only so long you can go without having basic functions.
AnonD-44744, 12 Jun 2012why is there no wifi direct, bluetooth or nfc? iPhone has no connectivityIt will have NFC most likely in the next version, don't frett, SGS3 only just got it as well.
iPhone was a project initiated by Cingular/AT&T and therefor you will find these Bluetooth and WiFi restrictions until all carriers agree to open them up. It's not Apple that is not allowing it. Same with FaceTime - AT&T restricted the use of it up until now where they could handle this functionality over 3G/4G.
I remember back in the days when Vodafone implemented the same restrictions on their devices, it's definitely not the manufacturer.
Still no flash player and rich text editor on safari, btw, i love the maps
AnonD-9070, 12 Jun 2012Now with ios 6 revealed (without any major news), looks like WP stand a good chance to comebac... moreApple are chewing on the cash..
No need to do anything until profits plummet.
Apple using kiss philosophy. Keep it simple stupid.
Apple has just announced the next version of its iOS platform for the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad - iOS 6
The iOS 6 brings the long-awaited Facebook integration – Android already has it
The next new feature is Reply with Message when you can’t answer a call - Android already has it
The iOS 6 brings a new Do Not Disturb mode, which mutes all push notification, incomming calls and prevents the screen from lighting up, so it doesn't disturb your sleep or hard work. Android already has it Smart action
The next new feature is VIP contacts. You mark a contact as VIP and all the messages you get from that contact will be highlighted, so you'd know to check them out first – Android has it
IOS fans should admit that IOS is always lacking behind the Android OS. new Map Turn by Turn navigation lol :D previously IOS 5 drop down menu :D
copy cat invent some thing new !!!!
iOS 6 is great! Now, Google have to work work work on a new, better Android version for smartphones.
"Siri also got support for new languages – Canadian English"
Really Canadian English! No offense to my cousins to the North but, really aye.
honeybadger, 12 Jun 2012there is some powerful macbooks coming out, or is it a sign apples knows its iphone "revo... moreI really want a desktop OS from google....not Chrome OS...a powerful one on intel
Well guess what it looks Apple copied this Facebook integration, Maps and Siri open applications from Android. They started this from iOs5 copying the notification bar and claim its theirs and now copy even more. They should be the one getting sued!
anD apple will patent all of them, as usual.
And they will sue every phone which has facebook integration, reject call with message, etc.
