Except when Apple updates something, everyone gets it. When they announce it, we know when we are going to get it.

What's the point of getting an update if you're not able to get all of the features that comes with it?

iPhone 4 users are using Maps without flyover, and Apple's biggest selling point of their iPhones, Siri.

List 5 "updates" the iPhone 4 got that are actually usable when updating to iOS 6.

That's true with every company. Samsung announces and people get it, Sony announces and people get it. Aaah don't remind me of SJ RANT as that's gone with the wind ... don't view OS as a
Company when you talk Android :)

But you never get everything. Features get stripped off the further back you go in generations.

6.1 destroyed 3g and WiFi and now 6.1.1 destroys battery. Apple iPhone,the pinnacle of technology. Apple are probably hoping half of the affected iPhone 4s users just give in and go out and cough another 600 bucks for an iPhone 5!

I've used an iPhone for 2 days and returned it. iOS is pure garbage.. The learning curve on it is next to none and the UI feels like a child's coloring book. If you're looking for a real user experience with great battery life, go with Samsung Galaxy S3 / Note II.

So Apple acknowledges the problem and you dont? You have taken fanboyism to a new level.

No, keep your iPhone on charge...it'll drain away.
My friend's 4S are prone crashes every now and then after she update her 4S with 6.1.1.
