We can’t really say this is in the unexpected category, but it looks like Apple will in fact unveil iOS 6 at WWDC next week. 9to5mac snapped a few shots of...

Well we don't know if Apple will allow it on the 3GS so all we can say for sure is 3 phones and that's pretty sad.

it doesnt have to run on more than they have. I work for verizon wireless, i can't explain to you how many people come in with issues on their android phones and how few iPhone owners do. I see close to 60-70 customers a day, 30% of which have issues with their smartphone, 80% of which are android owners, "my keyboard isnt working","my screen is a funny color", "my 4g isnt working", "my screen wont rotate", my apps keep closing for no reason", "all these other phones have updates but mine doesn't, when is my droid A855 getting ICS like the nexus?" the reason why people use iPhone is because it's simple gets what they need done, when they need it done, and is easy to use. People also buy because of their superior marketing skills when it comes to product releases. Again, nobody can say anything about ios6 yet because we know nothing about it. So all you FAndroids just please save your comments until after it's unveiled. Chill the F**K out.

Are you crazy? I've never had a single problem with my DROID 4 or my OG DROID. The reason some people have problems with their phones is because they buy the crappy Android devices instead of the good ones. My gf had an LG vortex because that's what her grandma bought her. She went through 4 of them because they kept acting up. Once I upgraded to my DROID 4 I gave her my OG DROID and she hasn't had a single issue. BTW there is no reason to upgrade the OG Droid to ICS. You should already have a new phone by now and if you really want to you can just use a ROM. I know someone who has a DROID X. He used a ROM to upgrade it to ICS. That's the beauty of Android, it gives you the freedom to do what you want with your phone and you get to choose what phone you want. The only choice you have with Apple phones is Black or White and how many GB?

Let's deny the obvious that android phones are very buggy

Very Buggy?! Have you ever used an Android phone?!

The Galaxy SIII is smooth and faster than the iPhone 4S. Sure some android phones suck but the really good ones run circles around any iPhone.

we are talking about OS not version. don't go there as 7% of Androids run the latest version.. now that's sad...

There are way more Android phones that run 4.0.4 than phones that run iOS 5 that's sad. It's not Google's fault that the adoption rate is so low, it's the manufacturers'. Apple has it easy upgrading 3 devices rather than hundreds from 5 different manufacturers.

2.3.x is a fine operating system as is - beats out iphone 5.x, easily.

Exactly 2.3.6 is still better than iOS 5 so saying that only 7% of Android devices have 4.0.4 isn't sad at all.

when ics came out. fandroids are quick to proclaim that the new os is so fast, buttery smooth, more advanced than ios. but upon learning their phones won't be supported by ics, baaam! took a u turn and saying instead, "well, 2.3 something is ok with my phone, i don't need ics!" much like a small iphone screen, software update is the major setback of having an android! be man enough to admit!

Umm the phones can get the update. Like I said one of my friends is running ICS on his DROID X. Sure he had to root his phone to do it, but can you mod your iPhone to have a bigger screen? Oh that's right Apple wants you to drop at least $500 on their iPad to run iOS on a big screen.

Dammit, think properly, I have a Chevy and I can't get a Merc, but you have a Nissan, but can buy a Honda. So what? The Chevy still beats out your new Honda.

iOS is so far behind in terms of development and functionality that every "new" and big feature is already on past versions of Android.

You add widgets? Already on eclair
Add app integration (twitter or facebook, whatever)? Already on eclair
Zero shutter lag camera? On ICS
Turn by turn navigation? On eclair too.

No matter what Apple does to iOS, it will still only be tha same level as eclair, so obviously, when comparing to iOS5, Gingerbread already beat it, but in terms of updates from Android, obviously, everyone wants the latest and greatest.

iPhone's market share and sales are going up so the facts don't agree with you. Only sheep is you because you attack people for thinking different.

If android has more market share wouldn't that make you part of the herd?

Here you continue to attack people for not thinking like you. A sheeps mentality

Android has more marketshare yes, but Androids come in many different shapes, sizes and interface forms. You can never find 2 people who have the exact same widget/icon arrangement on the homescreen with Android unless they both left the stock interface untouched. The only thing differentiating you from the sheep standing next to you using an iPhone is the wallpaper.

No, I don't attack people for not thinking like me. Do I have to find murder acceptable before I can be considered different from other people? No, I don't. So no, I don't attack people for not thinking like me, I attack people like you because you are a stupid troll sheep who can't even think like a regular person, much less an individual.

No you come to Apple articles to troll. You attack Apple as worse regardless of what they do and you'd be here trolling regardless of me.

Again a true sheep is someone who thinks everyone should be just like him. It's very funny because you say you don't like Apple because they limit choice, but then attack people for CHOOSING Apple.

It's a free market. If you don't like Apple vote with your dollars not with your mouth. Talk is cheap.

iOS was not the first mobile OS, it may have been one of the more user friendly, but BlackBerry, Palm, and Nokia had all already established there own perspective OS.

Every company has the right to brag that they are the best..but it is up the consumers to decide. Apple made iOS 6 for their loyal followers only, even the slightest update will make them happy. Widget, new wallpaper,siri non beta and thats it. Android world is advancing fast with all new feature in its software these days, Apple need to bring something new

"World's most advanced mobile operating system"

Can't do half of what Android already can.

Apple really love saying they produce "the most advanced" products when they can barely do what their competition can *cough*OSX*cough*

What can they possibly add to iOS to make it advanced? Turn by turn navigation? Facebook integration? Widgets? Siri now speaks maxican? Pathetic
