Today, I updated my iPad's iOS. Some new version of iOS 6, it's been out for quite some time, but I only did it today. It said to only fix the message security flaw and better japanese support in some app. Afterwards, I noticed one big change:

When browsing photos on the "Photo" app, and choosing to send the photo by email, I no longer get a menu with the "send by email" option. Now a window opens with 9 icons, one of them been the "Mail" button.

I dont get how this is "better". For me, a somewhat advanced PC/Mac user, I can adapt to this things. But how the hell is changing "click here to do this" for some freaking simbol suposed to be a better experience? A lot of begginers will not know how to do this, and the iPad is no longer "easy to use"

On a sidenote, iOS 7 looks exactly like my Samsung Smartphone wich has a pre-android/iOS Operationl System. It costed like $100 unlocked and it now offers the same Apple experience

Back to the main issue, I have a question:

-Where do I check online for EVERY SINGLE CHANGE IN A UPDATE for iOS? I dont want to make the same mistake again.

That sounds awful for you. Imagine having a few more options, up to 9 when you want to do something? It must have been quite traumatic to have to find said mail function in said 9 icons. As a power user myself, I can now these things terrify you.



:rolleyes:

Yea I know, the mail icon is hard to see and unrecognizeable. It's been a problem with every edition of iOS. It's just so hidden. Maybe they should make it look like an envelope and label it with the word 'Mail' or something like that.

Good for you! $$$ Savings. Just stick with your old Sammy and you're set.

Hi. I updated my phone to iOS6 earlier on today & now I am unable to post any photos to my apps such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. I have visited many forums to try & find a solution & I have followed the steps given it has not worked. When I go into my privacy settings & click on photos there are no apps listed to enable. It just says "all the apps that have requested access should be listed here" yet there is nothing there. I have delete and re - installed Facebook, Twitter & Instagram yet it is still not working. Can someone please help me? It is becoming very frustrating! Many thanks.

Try and share a picture within the app, there should be a pop up asking you if you want to give the app access to your photos

I actually like the new options pop-up....Each to his own I guess...No doubt IOS 7 will change things again, it's a process of evolution...Some people will like new features, others preferring the old way. I'm for going forward.
