Apparently, they are busy hiring ex-Google employees, give them 2 months (hopefully, they found the smart ones & not slackers). :D jk

I hope so or by the time I get my iP5.

Not sure about the first part, but for the 2nd. I own both the 4S and the 5 and they look similiar but the colors look better on the 5. There are studies coming out to support this as well

That's great.

I am "upgrading" from an old iPod touch (4th generation). This will be my first phone (whenever it ships)

Are there any glaring issues aside from the maps app and the swoosh sound being off when you send an email? Maps isn't getting fixed anytime soon.

Screen flickering on the App Store password thing.

Less than a month. The maps issue will be fixed with a bigger change like 6.1.

So October then?

That actually coincides with the new iPod touch, iTunes, and iPad mini updates.

I was thinking the same month as well.

I have no inside info, but that's what I would guess.

I would actually guess that the new products will ship with 6.1, not 6.0.1, because every iPad release has brought forth an x.x, not x.x.x. (eg 4.3, 5.1) I do realise that the iPads don't usually come out in October, but we'll see.

The fact is, I don't see why they would advertise the iPod touch on 6.0 and have it ship with 6.0.1/6.1.

Hope soon.
The wifi issues are pissing me off.

So is it confirmed that the wi-fi issues are software based and not hardware based?

----------

A month?

Also, has 5's screen gotten better over the 4S?

Judging from Apple's iOS release history, I want to say anywhere between October 15th-October 31st. Just a guess, but I hope it isn't longer than that!

The problem with maps are inaccurate data as well as satellite imagery. All which are fixable on the server side. The front end app itself is actually fine aside from public transportation.
