Why this limitation?
It's always been like that.

Maybe for iOS devices, but not desktops or laptops or nexus devices.

Not sure how to downgrade on my Nexus easily.. and that's a nice way to prevent more fragmentation...

Facebook crashing on both 6.0.1 and 6.1, iPhone 4S, 5 and iPad 2 and 3.

There'll be an immediate FB update I'm sure, but for a 6.0.1 commercial release it's unprofessional.

It's unprofessional that a software update makes some apps unusable to some people? Interesting.

Good think we are not talking about desktops or laptops or nexus devices. And it has to do with hardware updates to the baseband that Apple makes when it updates the OS.

I wonder if we will see any of Ive's changes in iOS 6.1 Beta?

I would love Ive to put in an Easter Egg?

Ok, I am pushing it! LOL!

Will it be through the update that Apple addresses the WiFi connectivity issues a lot of iPhone 5's are facing? Or is that more of a firmware update?

Very pleased that Apple declined those requirements.

I'm also in the camp that loves the Apple maps. There are issues, sure, but it's a 1.0 product and I already use it FAR more than I used to use Google iOS maps.

Google Maps on iPhone SUCKED, it was AWFUL... no turn by turn, awful interface... it just plain sucked.

If Google Maps was what it is on a Android phone, then I can understand... but as it was... I can't see why anyone in their right mind would want it back.
This just shows that people care more about good data than good software. Can't blame them.

6.0.1 update 'Improves reliability of the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th-generation when connected to an encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi network', so I guess it fixes some...

Its fixed the most annoying bug ever where my iPhone wouldn't pick up signal anywhere after locking and unlocking the phone a lot of the time - meaning you had to turn airplane mode on and off to get it to actually search for a network...

Me too. Plus would make no business sense to allow the competition to have apps pre installed on a device. You don't see Microsoft having google chrome pre-installed on their OS, or iTunes for that matter....

Small tidbit, just in case anyone was wondering; the knob on that new lock screen slider works with the gyroscope like the Music one. The multitasking one still doesn't.

Way to tell half the story. Few companies will allow a competitor to have branding in a prominent product. Apple Maps has only a small disclaimer about TomTom providing data.

Didn't google also want more user data? How do you know money wasn't also part of the problem?

They wanted more access to data.Its scary how on Android my Nexus 7 knew where my house was and work was even though I never put it in my contacts app.

Because turn by turn is completely irrelevant on a map that doesn't know where anything IS.

FFS.
