That'll probably be saved for iOS 7. Along with new matte icons everywhere.

Right now it doesn't make much sense that new Apple apps like Maps, Passbook, Game Center and Reminders are all flat and matte while older apps like Phone, Messages, Safari and Photos are all round and glossy.

While I think that matte looks better, I'd rather have everything be glossy than have this kind of inconsistency.

I don't feel like I've ever seen so much attention to beta releases of a ".1" update.

Are we expecting anything feature-wise for 6.1?

I'm not sure what they have been doing for the past year. I guess some of it has to do with conflicts with Scott Forstall and Internet service distractions (Siri and Maps). Now that Eddy Cue is in charge of those services, hopefully the iOS development team can focus more on the actual operating system.

Considering there's a massive thread on the Apple support forums, I doubt it's people just being fussy.

And so you're telling me it's my fault that many of my Apple devices have issues with all 4 different routers I've tried over the last few months?

My 3G data is getting guzzled because I can't use WiFi half the time on my phone.

Anyway, back on topic, I thought it was going to launch by Christmas but I guess not. I'm thinking perhaps a January launch?

This request is never going to get old... How about everyone just stops crying about Apple maps. It works brilliant.

Modem version has been updated again in beta 4 on the iPhone 5.

Hopefully this further addresses the sticking on no service issue that was aledgy fixed in 6.0.1 but cerrtiany wasn't for me, my wife or many in Apples own forum.

6.1 beta 3 was first I tested and that did seem to fix the issue for me, modem gone from version 1.00.16 (ios 6/6.0.1) to 3.04.17 now.

A foolish hope, but is there a "list view" option for the App Store yet?

You viewpoint on iOS development will vary if you are the end user versus the developer. Developers, by and large, are happy with the new stuff of iOS 6. End users aren't into the gritty details and thus want UI features.

As for iOS 6.1 I'd love to see

Faster Stores - the new stores are slow to navigate IMO

More stability - I'm on an old iPhone 4 but there are too many crashes.

iCloud- push email please like MobileMe had...pretty please.

Better setup process- don't assume I want my iCloud account the same as Apple ID

iMessage- Stopped working on my Mac and can be flakey still on iOS. Fix

You are wrong and there is really no way around that fact. When you have a dozen devices and the new iPhone is the only thing having an issue only complete apple idiots would say "must be the router is bad". Apple really needs to hire somebody who understands wifi because its painfully obvious that they don't know what they are doing. Even OSX has its share if wifi issues.

I hope they release this update quite soon and hopefully it activates the LTE in Scandinavia as well!

I bought my iPhone on the day of release and still... No LTE! My carrier does have LTE on their other capable devices, such as the Galaxy SIII, but it requires a software update to work over here. Bah!

Anyway, still waiting!

You are never going to get Google Maps back as a default app....the sooner you accept this....the better! It's now an app you can download if you choose....will never be a default app again...Apple use Apple Maps,,,period

I don’t see that difference—both Safari and Maps are very matte, with small glossy details (Safari load bar, map pins.) Safari uses more color, but not more glossiness.

And Game Center is far from flat! It looks like a 1970s basement. And Reminders is less flat than most: paper and black leather textures.

Anyway... I agree that visual overhauls will await a more major update.

They might change the dock to the ML one in 6.1 update, they changed the camera button on the lock screen in 5.1 so I wouldn't be too surprised if they did change it

If two devices donít work with each other, but they both work with OTHER devices (such as his iPhone working fine with other WiFi points) then only complete anti-Apple idiots would assume it HAS to be the iPhone and not his router at fault The fault could lie anywhere. Pick ANY WiFi device and youíll find people online posting with problems.

With the possible jailbreak scheduled the day after the end of the world, I think I'll hold off a few days to see if this update screws that up. Better safe than sorry.

You must not be talking about all the developers whose business has been absolutely destroyed by the new iOS 6 App Store app. Missing search results, invisible new apps, sideways scrolling forever to find apps by name? etc. etc. These developers are not happy campers at all

I guess, holy moly. For that to be among one of the first complaints....wow.

I'd go with battery maybe, or maybe a change in how notifications are shown, fine. But dock?

My wishlist is short:

- Let me customize the dock!
- Get rid of the stupid "Stocks" apps.
- Merge the "Videos" and "Music" apps/icons. What are music videos?
- Animated background images would be beautiful!

They are needles in the haystack. It's not Apple's job to do their marketing for them. If consumers are looking for your product they will find it via the store or a direct link on your website.

Try again.
