So far I have read the music controls are different, and there is a gradient that is driving people nuts lol. Has anybody else found any other little graphic differences? I haven't been near a network to upgrade yet.

Google's releasing stupid updates as well with Jelly Bean, the last one (4.2.1) fixed December missing from the calendar... Yes, December was missing, no beta tester figured that one before release of 4.2...


Jelly Bean 4.2.1, Jelly Bean was Google's attempt to make Android smooth like iOS, but if you're making a list - Please tell Google to fix the following on our Nexus devices:
  • Bluetooth (which stopped working with 4.2),
  • Screen dimming (which happens every 5 seconds and makes the tablet unusable),
  • The battery that used to last all week and now lasts 2 days.

Considering Google's inability to release bug free software, I'm not worried about iOS just yet.

The touch registration still sucks.
Have you considered not doing it on purpose to break it? Why complain about something that's an issue just for those trying to break things?

IPv6 over LTE... gone again

Damnit, Apple/Verizon have done it again. Not 3 days after releasing 6.1 with Carrier 14.0, they've unleashed Carrier 14.1 and, as 13.1 did before it, they've turned off IPv6 over LTE.

What the **** is this teasing ********, Apple?

Double click the home button on the lockscreen. Look at the volume knob while moving the iPhone up and down and rotating side to side. There's a reflection effect on the knob.

Has anyone noticed the gradient strip below the lock screen player is off center? Its driving me insane.
You're holding it wrong!

No, seriously, it really changes with the orientation of your device

No improvement to the poor wifi reception on the iPhone 5 with this update. Sitting here with full wifi bars on my macbook pro, with no wifi reception at all on my iPhone 5, same as before and same on 2 other iPhone 5's on several wifi networks.

Very underwhelming, I'm in the UK so fandango isnt an option.

Fully charged ip5 last night was at 40% by 9.30 this morning, I sincerely hope this was a glitch as usually I can go two days on one charge (BT, location services, push, you name it all switched on, but fairly light usage most of the day as I have an ipad)..

The antennas Apple use are cheap so no amount of software updates will fix this. Maybe they will use higher quality ones in the 5S, or maybe they will just use the same inadequate ones?

I just spoke with Jim in Alpine support. He said that he thinks the firmware fix for this (known) problem should be out within a week, since he sees that the manual that goes along with it is complete.

Unfortunately, it will require a Windows-based PC to do the firmware update. But regardless, hopefully it will fix the Bluetooth.

Nah, most of my apps were free. I redownloaded them on Android. Just tired of iOS and want a bigger screen. 3.5" is too small and I doubt 4" is much better.

A year ago this comment would have been blasphemy here. Now it has close to 60 up votes. Interesting.

And yet almost 60% of Android users are still on Gingerbread or earlier. And 4-5 times as many devices use iOS 6 than Jelly Bean. Maybe the alleged feature advantages of Android aren't what people are looking for. Maybe it's just cheaper and more widely distributed.

You highlighted a post. I commented on it. Pretty straightforward. Sorry you don't approve of my decision.

With the price they charge for an iPhone there should be no cheap parts... I am surprised to hear about these kind of problems, year after year.

What search form? The iPad video app hasn't got one! I'd be pretty happy with a search form to be honest; in the meantime i'd settle for Siri or a Neural impact since a search form appears beyond them

No, no battery issues. Just the stuff they mentioned and a new layout of the music player when the screen is locked.

6.1 Update fixed the muffled audio my iPhone 5 experienced, it muffled my voice when I made calls. I've called a few people and all confirmed the audio is now crystal clear.

Here's to hoping this is well and truly fixed.

Interestingly (and sadly) enough, after a period of time where people were commenting on how good my audio was, I'm now back to having crappy audio, and I'm force to continue using a headset.

Sigh.
