iOS 6 now live, one last reminder before you update

0. phoneArena 19 Sep 2012, 12:18 posted on

It looks like Apple is sticking pretty close to that timetable we saw earlier today, because the iOS 6 rollout has begun and the update is live around the world. This means iOS users will be getting notifications for the update, but we want to put out one last warning before you update...

iToy owners might want to defer upgrading for a day to see if there are any problems with the upgrade. The frost day last year was problematic.

Edit - first day instead of frost. PA, you really need to fix the edit function to allow editing for say, 2 minutes after posting.

Agreed. I remember when ios4 came out and it bricked so many iphones, or caused them to lose connectivity. This seems to have had more robust testing with the developer releases, but there can still be irreversible glitches. Apple's solution: upgrade to the 4, which was one of the phones having the problem!

Going from iOS 4 to 5 had first day 'issues' as well. There was a validation server in the upgrade loop that went offline for most of the first day. The result of the validation server going offline was that the iDevice (Phone, Pad, and Pod Touch) appeared to have been bricked.

Actually, you do have to wait an entire year to get any update at all. They only release one update a year. iFAIL.

yes they certainly do... to FIX bugs!

5.0.1 to fix the battery drain issue caused by gps locator. 5.1.1 to fix photostream (could not delete photos) among varioous other annoying bugs.

not so much an update but a patch

oh they did make changes... primarily to bad software bugs.

updates are not always "enhancements"

android has bug fixes too. but they dont call it an "upgrade" (ex: 4.0 / 4.0.4 / etc)

so do you have a iphone?

I unfortunately bought my wife one and it literally hasn't changed. I can't stand how small the display is, nor do I ever want to use that thing. It's really uncomfortable to hold in the hand because of the rigid edges. She loves it though, which I am trying to remedy by any means possible. Hard to get out of that ecosystem though. And it is good for people that have tiny hands (females) and slow people. I kid!

I also have Jelly Bean, not sure what you're talking about. And Jelly Bean is only on at 1500% increase in the last 2 months. Enjoy your extra row of icons though!
