I think Siri is learning new languages!

Ask your Siri this: "Siri can you speak [Your language (in my case Portuguese)]?"*

*Only in countries witch doesn't have native language support.

Share with us your results. In Brazil were getting an error. In 6.0.1 we get an negative answer from Siri, but now it seems be different.

Does iOS 6.1 fix iTunes Wi-Fi Sync yet?

Ever since iOS 6 was released, wi-fi sync has been completely broken. Apple needs to get on that.

Don't you just love it when people say 'broken' when only they - out of millions -are having a problem? (Slight exaggeration!)

But if it doesn't work for me (me being the person who has the issues) then then it is broken and that is all that really matters right? If something doesn't work for me, I do not really care if it works for others, I am only worried about my own device; it doesn't help me if yours works now does it?

It is not unsual nor unheard of for Apple products to have issues that only affect certain users under certain conditions; this doesn't make the issue any less important...especially to those having the problem.

Yes, it may be 'broken' for you, but wi-fi sync is not itself 'broken' which is what you (and others in similar circumstances) imply by your statement.

Actually for me it works. My point is, just because it works for most people, doesn't mean it is not broken for others. And if it doesn't work universally 100% of the time for 100% of the users, then it is indeed broken aka buggy.

Again, my point is; it is not fair to dismiss someones issue because you feel it is an isolated case; if it doesn't work for them, it is important to them and if it doesn't work it is indeed broken for that user.

A car company sells millions upon millions of cars a year, most have zero issues, but if mine doesn't start in the morning, it is broken, right? Even though the guy across the street with the exact same car beeps at me as he drives down the road, mine is still broken right? And it needs to be fixed right? The guy wouldn't stop and call me a liar and say my car is not broken because his is running fine, would he?

Same thing.

This is not some isolated incident, though. Do a Google search for the problem and you'll see that it's very widespread. In fact, simply type in "itunes wifi sync ios 6" (you don't even have to enter terms like "broken" or "not working") and see what pops up. Maybe it's working for you, and that's great, but there are countless Apple users out there for whom the feature does not work at all. It's a pretty common bug.

Okay let's change it from cars to anything you want...name it, lets use televisions, we both buy a new TV, yours works out of the box, mine will not turn on, I call you and you say, nope, mine cannot be broken because yours works....really? Because your TV works, mine MUST work too? It is the same thing, two products made by the same company, used by different people at different times in different places can and often do behave differently.

I am not missing the point you are my friend. My point is simple, just because YOU do not have an issue with a feature, device, item, etc doesn't mean you should be dismissive of other peoples problems. In your world, it my be perfect where everything works, but you forget we do not all live in your world.

My point then is simple, the poster has a problem, to him the feature doesn't work, thus it is broken. You should not dismiss it because you do not have that issue.

There, simple enough?

Should have been fixed in 6.01. But not. Begining to think this is not a bug but maybe how they thought they the functionality should be. I dont think they forsaw many people using it as an alternative to home button wear and tear?

The guy across the street WOULD call you a liar, if you made a statement declaring all the exact same cars are broken and buggy because yours and few others don't work.

Add me to the list of people for whom iOS 6 broke Wi-Fi sync. It only works after the phone and iTunes have been shut off and restarted. And even then, it only works once until both of those are restarted again. Hopefully helps, but if 6.0.1 didn't... I'm doubtful this will. :(

No, I don't believe this is a hardware issue because it works for around 45 minutes after I do a Reset Network Settings every time. The Wifi part itself is working, I believe it's a problem in the firmware/driver of the Wifi which started presenting in iOS 6/6.0.1.

Wasn't sure if you were a developer or had interaction with apple in some way.

Apple just seem to ignore any questions I, my friends, or my colleagues have on the issue.

If you or someone is a developer, you could ask why the swoosh sound appears before the negotiation with the smtp server is completed. Normal behavior in any mail client is that the sound happens AFTER negotiation with the server.

After all, we already KNOW that we pressed the send button. The sound should serve to indicate it was successful.

Can i restore my iphone 5 and go from 6.1 beta 2 to 6.0.1 from itunes? thanks

I would think a DFU restore would take care of this, but I may be wrong..

Follow @iH8sn0w on twitter, he posts the expiry dates of betas.

"Today’s iOS 6.1 beta (10B5095f) released to developers expires on Friday November 30, 2012 @ 8PM (EST)."

"Today’s iOS 6.1 beta 2 (10B105c) released to developers expires on Friday December 28, 2012 @ 12AM (GMT)."

Can anyone confirm this. After upgrading to ios 6.1 beta 2, I don't see any way to make a FaceTime call from my iPhone 4S. Earlier there used to be a FaceTime button under contacts. Don't see any such button or dedicated FaceTime icon.

Can anyone suggest solution?

go to settings -> FaceTime and make sure you are signed in and it is active. If you are not the facetime option will not show up anywhere. Apparently there was an outage earlier today so perhaps you got signed out and it hasnt signed back in yet.

OMG I am so forgetful.

iMessage and FaceTime, as of yesterday, are down.

The servers aren't working properly so thats why there is no FaceTime available for that contact. It's not finding FaceTime information for him, because the server itself is down! When the server is running again, you'll see the FaceTime button.
Thats the reason!!

FaceTime doesn't check with the servers until you try to make a call. If FaceTime is on,all contacts will show a FaceTime button.

I made a fake contact to check as well as looked at a few contacts that don't own a FaceTime capable device

Has yours always been that good? Or only since this beta?

Reason I ask, most usage i've seen on this thing is 6hrs when I first got it. (That was wifi all day)

Yesterday I only managed 4 hrs 45 mins but I had a poor low 2G signal pretty much all day at work.

I did that with iOS 5, and even though I only paid $5 I realized that its not really worth having a buggy beta. I mean sure it's cool to have the OS before but it has a **** load of bugs.

It's not new as i've had it on my 4S and also on my 5 yesterday. I think the animation portrays mist or fog.

Ok then it uses WiFi + Cellular Data, either way, it's using your battery more.

In reality: It it does use location services, Starbucks uses GPS. If you have a Starbucks Passbook card, any time you pass a Starbucks your iPhone will alert you. GPS location services pinpoint your location to alert you when you are near a Starbucks location.

Yes, WiFi and Cellular for triangulating is/was used at first, but not as much as GPS. They tried WiFi + Cellular, but due to lacking accuracy as it depends on two factors being constant, GPS is being pushed. This is one of the reasons Apple revamped their Maps app, integration with Passbook location services. Apple has better control with their own Map.app.

Can anyone show how the lock screen controls look if the podcasts app is running? Preferably one that has album art, even better if its TWiT!

Attached current controls.

I love how everyone is going ga ga over new lock screen controls which was obviously and "oops" mistake after changing the music app in iOS 6. Seriously this has been the clumsiest iOS release to date.

Can anyone confirm if some real problems have been fixed with music like home sharing actually working consistently? Or how about that nice static Bluetooth music streaming from the music app......?

it's a shame that the slide to unlock and the camera button are still stuck in the past. they look so out of place when the new music controls are on show

it's not a surprise seeing as how people here went crazy over the new passbook welcome screen :rolleyes:
meanwhile other mobile OSes are leaping iOS in terms of features...etc

What would you rather it be like? I'm not trying to defend it, I'm curious what your ideas are on it. These things can always get better.

more like the design of the new controls and less like the aqua look from previous versions of iOS. something a bit more rugged maybe?

Technically yes, but most on here are not developers and find the beta's on google.

You pay if you want to be a developer.....price is $99/year https://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/

No. You pay if you want to sell app.

It would be nice in 6.1 (at least intorducing it in beta 3) if the music app was like itunes 11 is, with the sliding open of an album when pressed instead of it spinning around like it currently does...all in the name of uniformity of course! Where are you beta 3????

I wouldn't mind some flare for sure.. I would also like the "up next" music queuing.. That would be a nice addition.

I'll add a +1 to that. I hate sitting there waiting for the current song to end so I can start the next one I want to hear. Boggle my mind why no one at Apple thought of this sooner.

We probably won't see it for a couple updates though. I'm shooting for iOS 9 maybe? haha

Haha, that makes sense.. It needs to get here sooner than later though; at least for the sake of consistency with OSX/iOS. I just wonder if some people would really want that feature on a phone.. I know I would!

I think it could be one of those things Apple could implement quietly, that way those people who would use it can, and those who don't wouldn't care that its there. It doesn't need to be a big highlight.

Jonathan Ive is new designer and we should expect something else as we have never seen before. Unfortunately we will not see some crucial changes in iOS 6.1 but iOS 7 can bring another way of thinking about Apple iOS. Do you agree?

Okay for the ones bitching about the weather widget animating... It DOES animate. But only when it's very foggy or cloudy. It doesn't animate ALL the time, just when it's very cloudy. Look at @Surenix photos on Twitter. http://www.twitter.com/Surenix (not me) he confirms it. It's been around since iOS 6.0. So yes it does animate.

Another much over used stereotype my friend.

Originated in a small chippy in Stonehaven and has never seen the light of day in the cities of Scotland. I have never seen one, seen one for sale, or heard of anyone who's seen or tried one.

Yet EVERYONE in England thinks we live on the things and eat them often!

Is it ironic that the chippy up the road from me (in England), that's now closed, used to sell battered mars bars? :D So nice!!

Saw a battered cream egg on the menu at a seaside chippy once, but didn't try it.

I did that with iOS 5, and even though I only paid $5 I realized that its not really worth having a buggy beta. I mean sure it's cool to have the OS before but it has a **** load of bugs. This may not be the case in this specific event but you know what I mean. BUT you may be able to justify yourself to get it. Happens to me all the time ;)


I wasn't asking if it was worth it, i was asking if it was safe. Anyone else want to weigh in?

Isn't it like 2 weeks past beta 2? Was kinda hoping Apple released beta 3 yesterday or something, but guess it didn't happen. Given the longer time period, hope there's something substantial coming our way...

Have you tried a restore from iTunes? It usually works to help solve problems.

No. You pay if you want to sell app.

No, you pay if you want to put any app in the App store. You could develop in Xcode and side-load onto your own devices for free all day, but if you want to submit to the App store, you pay $99.

Man, wish that would happen too, but highly doubt so. Saturday was exactly 2 weeks after beta 2 and nothing was released. So if there was a next beta, it should be next Sat. Apple mostly adheres to the 2-3 week interval, not random days for release of betas.

what? Beta 2 was released nov 12. today would be exactly 3 weeks. so it would make sense if today they release beta 3.

New Features:
-New Passbook card to explain the app (9to5mac)


Improvements (fixes):
-Panorama is fixed (9to5mac)
-You can download individual songs from iTunes Match again (9to5mac)


If you notice anything new in 6.1 or improved from iOS 6.0.1/6.0, post here.

Finally! iTunes Match will be useable again!

Things that are free are not sold, sir. You still have to pay $99 if you want it in the App store, even if it's free. (Or if you want official access to betas)

Thanks for the answer, I wasn't concerned about the safety in terms of paying them, I was wondering what info the UDID could give them, since I would be under their "developer devices" wouldn't they be able to see what apps I use and possibly my info attached to those apps. I think there is only 100 devices per account so I think it would manageable to "monitor" them if this were the case.

Anyone know if the assistive touch auto-lock bug is still there? The one where iOS just won't auto-lock if the assistive touch button was the last thing pressed.

the bug is gone now, press assistive anytime and the screen will sleep and lock, tried already many times after update.

nice work apple
