That was the first time it happened for me. It's like the contrast goes too high for a minute or two. And yes it was the same thing - pressing the lock button to use the phone. The guy who works for me also had it happen two or three times.

Bizarre.

As for trolling, if you don't like what I've got to say, don't reply.

The fact remains, we've went an unusually long time without a significant bug fix to iOS 6 - much longer than usual.

I'm posturing as to why that is.
So, it's a fact that it's been the longest or much longer than previous point updates to iOS? Seems like iOS 5.1 was actually longer, based on quite a few sources, including http://willhains.com/iOS-version-history. It appears that not only has it not been the longest, or much longer, or even just longer, but it's far from anything that even resembles a half-truth, let alone a fact.

There's really nothing to posture, postulate, ponder, pontificate, or any other p-word, aside from maybe pretend--the fact is (and in this case it's truly an actual fact), the premise of this whole thing is simply false, and therefore there's really not much more to discuss.

Yawn.

I bet you feel pretty smart now eh? Shame that. I'm about to burst your bubble.

1. I never isolated iOS 6 when I mentioned the length of time for a significant bug fix. I suggested that it was the longest, but it is clear from my posts that I am referring to a gradual increase in time taken to fix bugs with each major iOS version.

2. There have been glaring bugs in iOS 6 from release day that Apple have yet to fix.

3. I stated that it was a 'fact' that we had went an unusually long time without a significant bug fix to iOS 6. the fact is (and in this case it's truly an actual fact), the premise of this is completely true, so there is plenty to discuss.

4. If there wasn't anything to discuss, what are you doing here? Demonstrating your skills as a keyboard ninja?

5. Please. No more trolling.

And yet the leading sentence of the OP of the thread reads, "This must be the longest we've went without a point update to iOS." Despite any modifications, expansions, or additions to that later on, the main opening statement is completely incorrect. What might become a little clearer, and/or simply modified/added, in later posts, is certainly not exactly something that was in the OP and the thread title, all of which kind of set the thread down a somewhat different direction.

As for the whole "significant bug fix" piece that got sort of attached to all of that, well, one of the big ones actually came in iOS 6.0.1 related to a rather bad bug when declining Exchange meeting invitations (perhaps not something that you might really use, or were affected by, but it was a rather big and bad bug and created issues for a lot of people). So, there you have it, a rather significant bug fix that was out 6 weeks after iOS 6.0 was released.

That's not even counting probably an even bigger and more significant bug fix that was included in iOS 6.0.1: the fix to allow iPhone 5 to actually perform over-the-air updates. For iPhone 5 (or essentially any phone that would suffer from an issue like that) that's probably as big and significant as bug fix can really get.
