Looking back at iOS 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, it seemed that was the last time when Apple offered up to .3 updates. Those updates were also featured packed. iOS 5.1 had a few things like Japanese for Siri, delete Photo Stream pictures, camera improvements, and iTunes Match improvements. Obviously it had less features than iOS 4.1 Then iOS 6.1 was just released a couple days ago and it had more LTE support for European and Asian countries and purchase movie tickets with Siri. It just seems Apple is adding less and less features each time while taking longer to do it. Are they running out of ideas? Probably not but why wait for everything for iOS 7? I would rather have Apple announce 7 major features like iOS 4 and release more .X releases than announce 10 major features and release only 1 .X update. Perhaps something like this for releases Feb/Mar - .1 update June - iOS 7 Sep - .2 update Nov - .3 update Of course this could vary but my whole point is more updates more frequently. For example we shouldn't have to wait 1 year for new features to be added to Siri. Apple update Siri with Japanese in iOS 5.1 in March 2012 and with Fandago support in iOS 6.1 in Jan 2013.
