How... uninspiring...

I got to say, that stating how a feature of this update is to use SIRI with FANDANGO is about as useful as a dress on a pig.

Sorry - that denotes an entire version sub-update? 6.01 to 6.1 - MEH!

I already own an iPhone 5 so to me this update means higher chances of a jailbreak! I could care less about what Android world has right now.

I've have it installed since yesterday and overall performance, speed and WiFi is dramatically improved. I used to barely get 1 bar and in and out in my room, now I get a solid 2 bars of WiFi.

I agree with most that the update overall is pretty 'meh' but it makes me wonder if the team is being refocused under Ives to other areas and updates and this is just a general maintenance update in favor of moving resources to bigger changes and updates coming in iOS 7. Apple app updates are pretty much zero right now and such a small change here makes me think that teams are working on bigger things.

Due to the lacklustre nature of iOS 6, this is the first iPhone I am looking forward to jailbreaking! I have actually never jailbroken my phone before.

Anyone else always bugged by the bottom left gear in the software update animated logo that seems like it should be going the other way?

iOS does not need JellyBean to not lag. I'm always wondering what these people think when they are writing something like what the quoted author said. The point of Jelly Bean (Project Butter) was to make Android lag less and android fanboys call it the greatest thing ever happend to Android, while iOS really has had it from the beginning (full hardware acceleration).

Hopefully some silent fixes to the various issues that have been affecting people using iOS 6 with Exchange servers.

Me neither. I believe it's been more of a struggle than usual to find a exploitable bug with iOS 6. They have found one though but they're trying to wait until they find another before they release it, to avoid Apple immediately rendering it useless.

Please. Jony I've only works part time and is in charge of hardware (iMac slow rollout) and UI now. So changes will be very slow to come. But everyone says they want stability over change... so no wonder Apple is keeping its lead

They've (the JB team) apparently had a 6.0.2 JB available for the past little while now, but with the eminent release of 6.1 they, reasonably, wanted to hold off until Apple released 6.1 to the public first. As exploits are becoming harder to come by they didn't want to show Apple their hand before they had to.
