Nitpick : The status bar does not change colors. It's always gray. It just happens to have a certain translucency which results in blending in the color from the lower CALayer.

Is this from 6.1 or 6.0.1. If the latter mine looks the same as it used to.

It also looks like the seekbar in music.app is now constant. Where before, you could press on the album art to get it to disappear.

On the 5 it was constant since release.

Perhaps they are moving to a new cycle.
iPad 4/iPad mini - they may already have some 6.1 code in them and this will just bring all devices up to par

Wrong again, it said before the end of November, meaning any time between now and November 30.

That's not true. Objects that can tint the status bar conform to the UIStatusBarTinting protocol. Each UIWindow has an array of tint views. The current tint view is what's used by the UIApplication instance to physically tint the status bar.

Oh wow, a person crying about something they didn't like in a major software update--That never gets old! If you are going to complain about trivial things like "tacky colour changing status bars" maybe you should just write your own OS and make it just the way you like it.

You sir have a fantastic taste in music. We toured with The Gathering in 2004 in the states, and a little secret for you, we're booking a tour in the states (East coast) in March 2013 with Anneke, her first time here solo.

i swear to god, if someone says bring back google maps one more time i'm going to lose it.

Google Maps on iPhone SUCKED, it was AWFUL... no turn by turn, awful interface... it just plain sucked.

If Google Maps was what it is on a Android phone, then I can understand... but as it was... I can't see why anyone in their right mind would want it back.

"Devices updated ... can not be restored to earlier versions of iOS"

Why this limitation?

I find them pretty much the same. I don't have issues personally where I live with the new ones.

Actually, those are (some) legit questions, and I happen to agree.

For those updating on iPhone 5. Apple doesn't show GSM or CDMA, they only have model numbers.

A1428 = GSM
A1429 = CDMA

Totally agree. iOS6 maps is so much better.

The interface was designed and made by Apple. There was no turn by turn cause Apple didn't want to "pay" Google for that feature. I say "pay" cause Google didn't even want money, just credit for the maps stuff or other preinstalled google apps.

"Sources tell AllThingsD that Google, for example, wanted more say in the iOS maps feature set. It wasn’t happy simply providing back-end data. It asked for in-app branding. Apple declined. It suggested adding Google Latitude. Again, Apple declined." (bold added by me)
