Ooh, wasn't aware that filling my hard drive with crap would make me a 'power user'. Curse my desire to declutter my springboard and embrace streaming, I have been cast down with the plebs!

Just updated the iPad (4th gen), iP5 updating as I write this.

I'll _swear_ that the 4 finger swipe app switch is much smoother and way easier to trigger. I know there's the placebo effect of an OS update, but I was very noticeable.

DO NOT update to 6.1 via Software Update on the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. It messes up the jailbreak. See http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost...&postcount=568 and the rest of the discussion.

If you've already updated via Software Update, you will have to Restore 6.1 via iTunes to perform a clean jailbreak.

Always update via iTunes if you plan on jailbreaking.

After reading about how we're supposed to download iOS 6.1 I am sort of confused. What I did was connect my iPhone 5 to iTunes and just did an update through there. Was I supposed to do a clean restore instead for the upcoming jailbreak to work?

Well, if you put it that way, I do have some caring left. How about that, Mr. Nazi?

Updating over the air (OTA) directly from iOS devices should be avoided if you wish to jailbreak. You're good as you updated via iTunes.

My wifi issues remain unfixed. This sucks, I was really hoping this would finally be a resolution for me.

Everything was fine back in the 5.1 days...and now for months, since 6.0...I've not been able to use wifi on half of the routers around town.

iPhone App updates STILL not updating iTunes

Am I the only one with this problem? If I update apps on my iPhone, and then hook up my iPhone to my computer, it doesn't update the apps in iTunes. I have to redownload the same apps!

Why isn't this 6.0.3? Because of Siri Fandango access (which should have been a server-side update)?

I also have this problem on my iPad Mini and iPhone 5. Really annoying.

Meanwhile in Mountain View they are actually adding a plethora of new features and nice updates to a minor release.

This could just as easily have been a 6.0.2 update.

meh

Well, then set up that hotspot and download the update in iTunes.

You have absolutely no interest in receiving the 50-odd bug fixes, a couple of which will actually improve your experience?

All I want is a colour profile editor so I can get rid of my pissy yellow tinted iPhone 5 screen. I hope Apple puts this in soon so I don't have to jailbreak, though I guess that would be admitting something wasn't as perfect as they would like...

You can swipe to delete songs with iTunes Match, and download them individually. The lockscreen also displays album art correctly and has new music control buttons on the lockscreen to match the new music player.
You can only delete from songs.
Can't delete within playlists. Not consistent yet again.

Do the programmers actually use the product?
