    I think Siri is learning new languages!

    Ask your Siri this: "Siri can you speak [Your language (in my case Portuguese)]?"*

    *Only in countries witch doesn't have native language support.

    Share with us your results. In Brazil were getting an error. In 6.0.1 we get an negative answer from Siri, but now it seems be different.

    I dunno, but I like the design of the current player better # I can directly see the length on the right...

    Anyone know if the assistive touch auto-lock bug is still there? The one where iOS just won't auto-lock if the assistive touch button was the last thing pressed.

    It was, you are correct. But I have not seen this particular icon on my iPhone Safari toolbar in a while.

    Would someone tell me if Do Not Disturb lets an allowed contact's text messages sound off? As it stands in 6.0.1 a person can call through but their texts are silenced.

    Does iOS 6.1 fix iTunes Wi-Fi Sync yet?

    Ever since iOS 6 was released, wi-fi sync has been completely broken. Apple needs to get on that.

    Don't you just love it when people say 'broken' when only they - out of millions -are having a problem? (Slight exaggeration!)

    But if it doesn't work for me (me being the person who has the issues) then then it is broken and that is all that really matters right? If something doesn't work for me, I do not really care if it works for others, I am only worried about my own device; it doesn't help me if yours works now does it?

    It is not unsual nor unheard of for Apple products to have issues that only affect certain users under certain conditions; this doesn't make the issue any less important...especially to those having the problem.

    Yes, it may be 'broken' for you, but wi-fi sync is not itself 'broken' which is what you (and others in similar circumstances) imply by your statement.

    Actually for me it works. My point is, just because it works for most people, doesn't mean it is not broken for others. And if it doesn't work universally 100% of the time for 100% of the users, then it is indeed broken aka buggy.

    Again, my point is; it is not fair to dismiss someones issue because you feel it is an isolated case; if it doesn't work for them, it is important to them and if it doesn't work it is indeed broken for that user.

    A car company sells millions upon millions of cars a year, most have zero issues, but if mine doesn't start in the morning, it is broken, right? Even though the guy across the street with the exact same car beeps at me as he drives down the road, mine is still broken right? And it needs to be fixed right? The guy wouldn't stop and call me a liar and say my car is not broken because his is running fine, would he?

    Same thing.

    Your missing the point.
    And that's another thing I love, the way people use irrelevant car arguments in these cases. (Why is it always cars?)
    And, no, it's not the same thing, but I'm out of here now.

    This is not some isolated incident, though. Do a Google search for the problem and you'll see that it's very widespread. In fact, simply type in "itunes wifi sync ios 6" (you don't even have to enter terms like "broken" or "not working") and see what pops up. Maybe it's working for you, and that's great, but there are countless Apple users out there for whom the feature does not work at all. It's a pretty common bug.
