    I feel like 6.1.4 is an update for apple rather than for the users. I read that it didn't change any speaker or sound. Should I avoid the update?

    Why would you avoid it? Even if it doesn't fix any of your issues, there is no reason not to update...What kind of question is this?

    because it has no benefit from the user. I'm sure it's apple trying to collect more data from us and have more control over the phone with this update.

    If you're sure apple is pushing updates to track its users, then by all means avoid the update. In reality, apple providing bug fixes and most users should upgrade.

    And with 6.1.5 they'll add a remote kill switch if you post anything negative about Apple on rumor forums! Where's my tin foil hat when I need it?

    what bug fixes on 6.1.4 update? Someone did a speaker sound date with 6.1.4 and 6.1.3. No different at all. Not sure what sound update they did

    You mean it won't suddenly do NFC or have a fingerprint scanner? 99% of updates are under the hood that average users don't know about or understand. Additionally, extra speakers won't be activated and I'm not sure what needs to change with sound.

    Apple's site states:Updated audio profile for speakerphone

    Link

    As I said, if you don't want to update it, then don't - no one is twisting your arm in updating. If you think something nefarious is going on, then perhaps you may be happier on a different platform.

    I notice a difference when watch Netflix. Prior at 100% it surprised me that the speaker didn't blow out and now at 100% is seems like the volume is less distorted and forced.

    To me it sounds like the profile turned the audio down, making it more flat. I prefer it this way.

    Apple tuned the audio profile (read: how it sounds) for speakerphone mode. At least you get updates. If you were on Android, the only phone with timely updates is the Nexus.

    Don't update then, simple as that. I updated mine and haven't worried about it in the slightest.

    If your running a jailbreak or are running a FW in which you could jailbreak at some point, I would personally avoid updating. However Apple is not out to get you, it's fine to update anytime.

    What additional data is being collected and what additional control is being given to Apple? Where is this documented? Yeah... :rolleyes:

    LOL so Apple, who makes iOS for six years now and could have left any secret remote control it wanted, wants to secretly have more control over the phone, and would need an update for that, and you just figured out their diabolical plan. Jeez, thanks for warning us :D

    Do you have any evidence that supports this theory?
