Apple’s iOS 6 has 200 new features. Big improvement and small tweaks, but that number, 200, alone is telling. Now, iMore has compiled all the tiny details it could pick up…

more than 70% of those are found on Android/Symbian and other platforms already or not needed.

iOS 6 is really a disappointment. no matter what hardware the iPhone 5 holds, the software is already a big let down for me.

Android fans will do anything to try and make their devices feel more important.

apple stole the notifaction center from andriod, the access to the camera and texts on the unlock screen and they even use google maps.... ha!

edit.

not to mention with andriod 2.3 you can send a text to someone automatically when they call you if you can pick up(like hey im at work)

Actually on ios 6 maps will be tomtom powered.. ;)

I dont know or care where apple gets their ideas but I am no apple fanboy either I think both android and ios are good and I own both powred devices.. I did like the app store of ios better then androids store though.

The access to the camera from lock screen was stolen from Windows Phone. Both OSes still haven't gotten it right because with Windows, you don't even need to turn the phone screen on. You just press the camera button and boom it works

Fun New PULL-TO-REFRESH animation. WOW. Wow seriously? Every social networking app in the market has it. Why would that be even listed in their crappy small update log?

I think what irks me the most, is that, Apple spends so much time suing everyone over copying their ideas, then turns around and release their "new" iOS6 and almost everything on it is already a function on my phone. Apple = Hypocrite.

the thing is apple only sues over things they have a patent for... im sorry google either doesnt/cant patent android designs, but legally apple is not being overly hypocritical... in reality they are, but at least the copies seem to improve and grow upon whatever the original was

There will now be 5 pages of people bitching about apple copying android.

Shut the f**k up with that. On every iOS 6 article on phonearena, that's all you guys do. I'm actually interested in reading what Apple fans think, not how much Apple copies Android.

Exactly. Everyone needs to quit complaining about who copied who and what came out "first". If you don't like Apple thats fine don't buy their products.

I love android and ios and I think this update is pretty good.. there are 200 extra features and the main ones that apple did mention will be good to see in action, tomtom powered 3D maps as well as do not disturb where you can chose who can ring you, also facetime over a 3G connection will be good but the problem is not many carriers offer a decent amount of monthly data, i hope this will change soon with more and more need for 3G - LTE data that hopefully the next iphone will support. Its a shame that the iphone 4 wont get all the updates but thats not surprising since its the 3rd major ios update, is there anything you where hoping for that apple did not add? I still really wish apple would enable bluetooth file transfer

Android and iOS, I own both. So I am really not into comparing thing. Android is what it is and do iOS. Every OS is unique in itself. Poor people compare cause they can't buy both and keep showing that they got cheap thing which is better.
