Does it still switch off Wifi when the device is in idle, or are they fixing that with this release?

Maybe it will improve in the future
There are many sites that offer Passbooks you don't need the app just visit the site and download a passbook.:

www.cuopons.com
http://www.passsource.com
http://passkit.com
https://www.passtools.com
http://passdock.com
http://www.passpages.com

Some of the sites like Passsource allow the creation of passbook passes from your plastic cards.

People. The "Safari is snappier" joke was never funny...and it's certainly not funny after the eighteen-thousandth time, either.

iPhone has done this since iPhone OS 1.0. It's a battery saver.

Check the Passbook wiki page. It has a good list of Passbook apps and website support.

It looks like Virgin Atlantic added Passbook support today.

Go to the wiki page I linked above. I see a significantly longer list there.

Wifi hotspot plain stopped working. works fine on iOS 5.
Yup. My wife and I have this issue with our iPhone 4s (that's two iPhone 4 models, not the 4S model).

Starbucks, Tim Hortons, McDonalds... Basically any free, public wifi often requires power cycling to connect. No issues at all on our home wifi network.

I think sites with an auto refresh have this issue... On my phone it works for all websites except the cricinfo website where the a part of the page auto refreshes every 2 minutes... This happens on chrome, I havent tried to replicate it on Safari...

I'll take a battery life improvement on my iPhone 5 please. Doesn't last a day on moderate/light usage. My iPhone 4 was better!

I hope that they get rid of all traces of skeuomorphism soon, hopefully before iOS 7 comes out.

Question is does iOS 6.1 fix the sticking on 'no service' bug (iPhone 5) that was allegedly fixed in 6.0.1 but certainly wasn't for me, my wife or loads of people on Apple's forums.

It's really annoying having to cycle airplane mode to get a network back when it happens.

I am a developer but not had chance to install it.

"I'd like to, Dave but I cannot. My apologies"

Disappointed - both that you can't actaully use siri for something so obvious and also because my name gives the perfect excuse to come back with

"I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that."

When Safari ran on 10.2 it was dead dog slow (as was 10.2). Things didn't really improve until 10.4 when Safari got snappier and people have been thankful of that ever since. Personally I think 8 years of a lame joke that is still active is commendable.

G5 Powerbook, anyone?

We had the same problem. Took it to the Apple Store and it was replaced on the spot.

Wi-Fi Fix iPhone 5??

will there be a fix for wi-fi issues with iPhone 5? I had to change my router security from wpa2 down to wpa just so it will stay connected. This was confirmed through apple tier 2 support.

The software also modifies the hardware so a micro SD card slot appears.

I didn't really have any issues with Beta 2, but good to see they squashed some bugs for others.
