The data has been consistent for me but it wasn't with Google Maps when I was in the UK?

Which category do I land in?

AppleInsider posted this article on the next major version of iOS:

http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/...-flat-surfaces
Quote:
Jony Ive expected to replace iOS, OS X textures with clean edges & flat surfaces

Software designed to look like real-life textures, such as linen or felt, is expected to become a thing of the past at Apple now that designer Jony Ive has taken over the user interfaces of iOS and OS X.

Scott Forstall was previously in charge of iOS software, but his departure from the company was announced this week, while Ive will serve as head of Apple's Human Interface decision making. Forstall, along with late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, was a strong advocate for skeuomorphism, which is a type of design that replicates real-world objects digitally.

But Ive is said to loathe skeuomorphist designs, which means Apple's software is expected to have a significantly different look and feel in the future.

"You can be sure that the next generation of iOS and OS X will have Jony's industrial design aesthetic all over them," one unnamed Apple designer told The New York Times. "Clean edges, flat surfaces will likely replace the textures that are all over the place right now."


Another unnamed source suggested Ive would have to work to win over Forstall "loyalists" who remain at Apple. That former employee said they worked in software for several years, but never saw Ive in a meeting.

Some skeuomorphic designs are helpful to users, like the trash bin utilized in OS X for deleting files. Some who spoke with the Times also justified the digital paper shredder that appears when deleting items in Passbook for iOS 6, saying it is "a good way of reinforcing the idea that potentially sensitive information has been wiped from the device."

But other design choices not related to the use of the product have been criticized by designers at Apple as well as those outside of the company. In particular, the felt, casino-style table top in Game Center, and the "Corinthian leather" that appears in the Find My Friends and Calendar applications.

In recent years, Apple has brought many of the designs found on iOS devices back to the Mac platform. Today, in Mountain Lion, applications such as Calendar, Game Center and Notes have identical looks in iOS and OS X based on real-life objects.

Rather than skeuomorphic real-world interpretations, Ive is a proponent of minimalist designs that place functionality above all else. As head of Human Interface at Apple, Ive is expected to cut back on the type of unnecessary flourish that can be found in some of the company's current software offerings.

Maybe for iOS devices, but not desktops or laptops or nexus devices.
iOS devices are not desktops. They have wireless basebands and other hardware much more integrated than anything desktops have.

Bring back the iPod click-wheel?
Come pre-installed with a compass, still?
Bring back the MacRumors downvote for posts like yours?

Why don't you just run the build and see for yourself or submit Feedback requests to Apple. Most of those things you are complaining about are things that people say during the first few months of ANY OS release until a year later they look back and say, "Oh my gosh the new stuff is really growing on me now, I'm glad they changed it!"

This is I suppose a longshot, but did they add custom repeats for events in the Calendar app?

I really hope no.... Game Center is awesome and its UI is clear and fun.

3 Those who trying to explain that:

a) If you don't like the changes, you can always downgrade (unless you have latest iOS device or sell it and switch)

b) Maps won't come back, try to live with that or referer to 3a.

c) If there will nothing like FB/Twitter integration in iOS - you all will be hating Apple why, it's still missing.


People, please wake up...
d) It's only beta.

I used passbook for a boarding pass this past Monday. It worked pretty well, except that my gate (and terminal) changed after downloading the pass, and the pass did not update. I had to delete the pass, and download it again to make it correct.

I would like to see boarding passes that dynamically update when the flight is delayed or the gate is changed.

That has been (will be) updated via 6.1

Because Google Maps are not only very ACCURATE and provide very GOOD directions on foot and public transport.
Apple Maps are completely USELESS where I live, which happens to be one of the world's largest city.

Not really. This thread is about beta Apple software, specifically pertaining to iOS. iTunes 11 beta would be beta Apple software, specifically pertaining to iOS.
