Seems to work much better if you're connected to WiFi, at least it does for me. Not so great on the cellular network though.

I don't really understand why we need to wait for a whole year for any real updates in iOS... in the 4.x era... 4.0 adds folders, multitasking etc. 4.1 has HDR camera, 4.2 with iPad support, find my iphone etc., 4.3 Airplay for third party apps, etc.

And since 5.0 the updates came much slower and there was a nearly half-year interval between 5.0 and 5.1 Now Forstall is gone... I hope that the updates are faster now.

Shame there isn't an ipad version of the Apple Store app... I asked Siri the question and it told me to install the app. Could at least (on the ipad) take you to the website.

"But....No, the screen is perfectly fine to me! It's as sharp as ****! Retina screen has no use, it's not sharper!"

Siri: "Face the truth. It doesn't have retina display. The color is not as accurate. But don't worry. Let's go check out the Apple Store 6 months later. I have made a reminder on 7 May, 2013 for you."

Siri scans your financials and replies.."I'm sorry, you cannot afford a Mac Book Pro. How about an iPod Nano?"

Siri has been able to respond to prices about Apple products since iOS 6. I remember when the 15" rMBP came out I asked "How much is the new MacBook Pro?" and it opened the Apple Store app. Not sure why they're advertising this as a new feature..

This update adds support for EasyPay in Canada, amongst other countries.

Might be something you want to edit the article and say.

You can install the app. It just runs in that compatibility mode thing.

Before updating you already could say stuff like: MacBook Pro. It would take you you to the Apple store app…

So instead of updating iOS to make it more functional, apple decides to update so you can buy more apple products. Awesome.

Absolutely. Instead of acting as a middleman, I'd prefer Siri to just return the information I need.

Well, after iOS 6 any location based functions basically just don't work.

Convenience.

Why would you buy a $7.50 beer at a football game, when you can go to the grocery store and get one for 50 cents?

Useless beta Siri carries on with more meaningless non- function.

May i drag this conversation back to Passbook for a moment?

(EDIT: earlier question resolved, so deleted)

What's the Passbook splash screen supposed to look like? the only place i can "go" from the screen Passbook opens on is to the App Store. Is that how it's supposed to work--you're taken to a screen showing you (and giving access to open) the apps you've acquired within passbook, AND all the other apps you COULD elect to buy? It hardly seems right. I'm sure i'm doing something wrong. :-)

Am I the only one that thinks these features should have been included WHEN PASSBOOK was released instead of months later? I mean really, Apple, you cannot even have your own apps updated for the iPhone 5 at the time or release or support your own feautres with your own apps until well after release. Hey here is a great new app, you can't use it for anything yet, and even our stuff doesn't work with it, but look at the pretty icon and its free...That is just pathetic IMHO.
