    x.1 updates have historically been much more significant than this. All we got so far is very minor UI updates?


    *sigh* hope they add something worthwhile in beta 2, 3, etc.

    Some people have been getting dizzy/headaches due to sensitivity to noise canceling technology in the speaker. Does 6.1 have any options in settings to turn noise canceling off? (Other than the accessibility>hearing aid trick)

    Album art on lock screen fixed

    They corrected the crappy centering (or lack thereof) of the album art on the lock screen. See attached screenshot for an example.

    Nope. But I did not suspect there would be much of one.

    My god, even 5.1 was more significant than this. If I didn't remember wrongly, it introduced the fast camera access in the lockscreen (I consider this to be significant), face-detection for the 4S and a long list of stability improvements. Surely Apple can do better than just adding some minor UI changes? But then again, camera access for 5.1 only came at a later beta (can't remember which one), so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

    And what exactly would you like to see them add then?

    Don't say widgets because that would never come in a .1 update

    I'm not saying that I expecting some ground-breaking changes in 6.1, maybe adding some new for users would be nice? What's the point of me suggesting what I think they should add? I don't have sky-high expectations, but I'm sure even you won't satisfied if the update only has 2 new changes as listed above...

    Are you really surprised though? Remember how long it took apple to support mms?

    The new lockscreen music controls pushes up the time to the status bar?
