people posting about battery life.. It's a smart phone, what do you people expect? I read once a while back that the average smart phone has more power than the Apollo 11. More power = more battery life. Every single update that comes out people say "I hope battery improves". Sorry for my rant, it's just getting so old.

Eh???? With a smartphone? Are you completely crazy?

Lithium battery NEEDS to be recharged, you should not down your battery or it will die sooner. Charge everytime you can... and your battery will last... as long as you want.

It is absurd you didn't know that, but you are able to post on internet forums and blame the hardware!

Battery life is important to people? Personally I'd like to see 2 or 3 days. Miss the days of not having to charge every night.

Not sure you can draw parallels between phones and appollo. Pretty irreverent.

Smartphones since had more power than Apollo computers for a very long time ( the ones back 2002/3 were, for example)

What in the world so you do with your device? I charge my iPhones, iPads, and iPods every 3 to 4 days. You must have a lot of junk running in the background all the time, or leave the screems on when you're not using them.

The BEST change or app that could be added is a "close all my damn apps" option. Too many open and forgotten apps are the biggest drain on battery and data use.

Now that I've is in charge, I think they finally realize it's time to refresh that tired UI. Not sure they'll be able to do it in time for iOS7, but they sure as hell can't wait till iOS8.

Anyway, still waiting!
LTE is indeed active in Scandinavia (at least in Denmark) - very nice

This is a myth. Only the most recently used apps are using any resources at all. The rest are in suspended mode.

Anyway... I agree that visual overhauls will await a more major update.
I was talking about the icons.

I can't recall so many betas before public release. I wonder if it has something to do with the impatient Forstall not calling the shots anymore.

ok apple defender. Thank you for replying

I think that default apps feature is far more important than "do not track" or "passbook"

What big features has ios 6 brought? NONE
passbook/do not track/new mail app/apple maps/panorama

All of those are either not significant or have been already released in android

It was google who imitates apple, not it is the opposite (siri, panorama, .... nfc in 2013)

I hope apple give us some nice features in 6.1 and not little tweaks here and there seriously

Are you saying that the iPhone works with LTE in Denmark, or that Denmark has an active LTE network?

Sweden was actually the first country in the world to employ an LTE network, sadly though, the iPhone 5 does not operate in the same spectrum as the network.

I imagine iOS 7 will possibly have this feature. The three reasons this change might come then are
  1. Siri will most likely be improved to have 3rd Party API support due to the lack of "WOW!" factor the "update" left
  2. The Share… menu now features a more-or-less hot-pluggable selection of apps
  3. The high-profile fallout of Apple Maps has lead many people to use Google Maps instead of the default option.

Hi Mike,

Yes, LTE is ACTIVE on my iPhone 5 (Using Telia). I did't change any networksettings or anything. Just updated to the 6.1 beta Getting about 20 mBit/s i Copenhagen.

There honestly really isn't much at all. I'm sure they'll add something in the final build, but right now it's exactly the same as 6.0.1. :\

Wrong. Apple has had periodic wifi issues since iOS 1. Wifi access would break with every other iOS update before iOS 2.

It was a known issue and Apple periodically seems to not be able to handle wifi well. I have no idea why. But the phone/ipod software IS the issue and has been since 2007.

And so you're telling me it's my fault that many of my Apple devices have issues with all 4 different routers I've tried over the last few months?

My 3G data is getting guzzled because I can't use WiFi half the time on my phone.
No kidding. This is nothing new. My 1st gen touch had the same issues. It crops up periodically depending on the software update. At least wifi isn't getting broken every other update like in the 2007-2008 days.
