And what's practical for him isn't necessarily practical for you. No one should design anything only to appease the lowest common denominator. Good design and technology tries to take everyone into account.

It looks like anyone who wants to get an iPhone 5 would be better served at this point to wait for the 5S/6 in a few short months. The possibility of different colors, display sizes, better displays, NFC, better camera and who knows what else is just too much to ignore. I know these are just rumors, but last year at this time there was a rumor that there would be two iPads released in 2012.

Well....do they have this issue?

Seeing responses from people that play video games that don't have issues.

If you play Fruit Ninja, then it *is* normal usage.

But it doesn't say that. It says, very specifically, what this particular new technology is.

I know what the issue is (tried myself).
But I can't feel any problem with Fruit Ninja on my iPhone5 and I can still got 1k+ in arcade mode
You don't need "that" fast or may be you are likely to have lower score?

For the Infinite Blade...
Well I don't play it on iPhone (Of course on iPad). So I have no comment here.
But I can't feel the chopping is faster in gaming when I have a more faster move.

So the only possible reason we need "that" fast is gaming.
But still I can't find any gaming which can have any benefit with "that" fast.
This is a bug which need to fix, sure. But seems this fast moving is not that normal usage.

True,

But even the fruit ninga players are saying they don't have an issue.

So, my original point was about how many people are actually having the issues that where reported.

He was referring to a normal usage for a grown adult.

You assume that games are not "normal" for adult on iOS. Most video games in general on any platform are played by adults these days. The whole "video games are just for kids" thing happened in the 80's and died in the 90's.

This is caused by a third party charger which does not function as well as it should. Prolonged use could damage your phone.

This is the best rumor I've read in recent times.

Its a sign that instead of litigating, Apples returning to innovating.

Kudos to Tim Cook.

I think you have also factored out the rumoured 6months' wait.

I meant to provide an example that wasn't a game just in case people think the problem is non severe unless you are playing Fruit Ninja.

In some cases the touch screen is a little tough and users have to tap hard to get it to work, I myself had one of those, but then Apple replaced it and the new one is working fine. I was tapping on buttons and nothing was happening, until I did it very slowly, but it can be annoying.

Replacing the entire screen? I am not sure if that is it or maybe the oleophobic coating is the issue?
