Pathetic.

Let me say that again louder and clearer: PATHETIC.

Thanks Apple for making my choice more easier. Its Android for me from now one.

You guys keep waiting until iOS 7 for new features.

Is the iOS team on hollidays or what? Are they out of ideas? Unbeliable.
Bye then! Don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out!

I get this sometimes, I find you need to turn off tethering, power off the iPhone and iPad, fire up with iPad, disable the wifi, fireup the iPhone, re-enable the wifi on the iPad, enable tethering and then connect. Works fine then..... until you don't use it for an hour or two.....

Network

Apple must think about the cellular network modes(types) improvement like Androids:

-WCDMA/HSPDA only
-GSM only
-WCDMA/HSPDA preferred

The same for Czech. Seems fixed as well, at least most of it.

Not all of them. If you want *full* control over your phone, get an Android. The way it is makes iPhone very easy to use - for everyone. And not everyone lives in the USA or South Korea. What I am trying to say is that you don't need to be tech-savvy to use iPhone, because it's 100% foolproof. Whereas if you want to master Android you have to learn how to use it first. iPhone's user friendliness is unbeatable, no discussion.

I don't think iOS needs a major redesign, just a minor UI tweaking - the same type of tweaking as OS X have gone through in recent years. But yeah, design-wise, iOS6 is a fck-up.

Don't see the version number or a link to the damn release notes. Maybe someone more pleasant can point me in the right direction or otherwise maybe not feel obliged to reply?

Cheers!

This is great news.

Perhaps there will be less bugs in this version, that would be a very welcome change

2 things that will help your battery life a lot based on my experience:

Full battery cycle charge and do a clean install.

I remember when Microsoft afficianados would claim that PCs and Windows were better than the Mac. Why? Because they've got THOUSANDS of games, man!

Well my response is, how many games do you need to play?

Same with Android. I mean, come on. So you have a bunch of "features", most of which you'll never use nor do they provide any real benefit to the user experience.
Exactly my thoughts. Android has this and that that I probably will never use and Apple does not have? Then it certainly must be better. People, just buy a phone that satisfies your needs and stop your brain farts.

So you're switching to Windows Phone, right?

At least I know I will be getting 6.1. Most people on Android will never get the 4.1 and 4.2 updates unless they root their phone.
