Can we start a list of the improvements from 6.0.2 to 6.1?

The assistive touch bug is finally fixed, where the screen won't auto-lock if the assistive home-button was the last thing you pressed.

Lock screen play controls finally match the new Music app, including the awesome volume knob that changes as you tilt the phone.

If I hear one more thing in relation to the battery I'm going to go bat****crazy.

On a side note, I love the music player and music lock screen design changes. Installed beta 5 about an hour before this went public, but I'm assuming they're two identical files.

My iPhone actually stays connected to my AirPort Express's 5GHz network and seems to be much faster!

Why do people think, that the software update, which is already optimized better than any other OS' can increase battery life? Even if it could, you could not see a difference.

The way it handles processes, how much of a toll it takes on the processor, etc, etc, can be changed, thus making battery life better. Also, how noticeable it is, if anything was changed to effect battery life at all, depends on your device and how you use it and if you pay attention to battery life.

I see no compelling reason to upgrade. If previous updates are any indication, it'll probably break something. Think I'll wait a few weeks and see what happens with people who upgraded

Uhh.. for example, break what? I don't remember going from 6.0 to 6.0.1 to 6.0.2 being a problem.

I can't believe it took 3 months for that. That's the kind of update that 3 software engineers should be able to implement over a weekend.


As a side note, I noticed that Apple still hasn't corrected the Cover Flow glitch, where missing album art jumps between the black graphic and the white graphic when you turn the iPhone horizontally. I wouldn have thought that over the course of making the lock screen music controls more consistent, they would have fixed that as well, but they didn't.

Great, this way they can continue to ignore the problems I report with a bigger button!
