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.

installing it right now. you guys can hate all you want but at least we don't have to wait a year to get a software update officially.

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

27. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)


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)

35. infinitemethod (Posts: 123; Member since: 04 Sep 2012)


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!

lol... are u really trying to make a point? when iOS just rolled out the features that have been available since Gingerbread? yeah, we can wait for a few weeks or months (if u want to wait for official releases) for something you'lle be waiting until iOS 9.5 to receive :P

44. Quezdagreat (Posts: 413; Member since: 05 Apr 2012)


My point is iPhone users don't care what features android phones already have, if we did care we would have a android phone. So stop crying because people would rather buy the iPhone than your precious android

Quezdagreat- you just been made look a fool twice and then try claiming you dont care what features android has.......you brought up about the jelly bean update so you had it coming

48. Quezdagreat (Posts: 413; Member since: 05 Apr 2012)


No I didn't I was taking about how you guys hate on iOS but a majority of andriod won't see jelly bean at all officially or they will get it in a year. I don't know what's new on jelly bean and I don't care

50. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


now you just sound like an upset child. dont talk about jelly bean if you know nothing about it.

just because you finally got an update you feel it gives you the right to criticize other OS's. ive had 3 biggish updates for my phone in the last year but i dont then go tell others they wont see updates for there phones

Don't try to act like I don't know what I'm talking about. My friend brought the Motorola photon last year and he don't even have ics.

Android only give updates quick to the big name phone that's selling the best

52. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


well thats business, focus more on your main sellers. no company does any different
but doesnt change anything, just because you got an update dont start throwing out comments about other OS's

53. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)


Because you don't.
PS, about the photon, don't blame "Android ",blame Sprint.
Android doesn't give updates. Google updated its nexus,and that proves that android has fast updates.

Well I guess it's Motorola they don't care about. But I'm done talking about androids, mentioning them gives me a headache just like the folks who from android to iPhone.

Enjoy bashing iPhones, make your mom proud lol

You just showed how simple minded you are. Do you really think iPhone users are the only people who say that?

I can't believe you just stereotyped someone by the cellphone they own.

posted on 19 Sep 2012, 17:05

59. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


no but on this site its mainly apple fanatics who say stuff like that, and then start arguments and when they cant handle it they accuse the other people of hating apple etc

im not stereotyping you just on your phone, thanks to your comments i have enough information to know your very immature and very defensive and at the first sign of criticism you either say something against android or some childish mom comment etc..

I think the fastest updates I've yet seen were from Nokia after the 900 launch. Didn't even know there were problems and they had a fix for it, AND a $100 bill credit, on top of many pre-ordered phones were $50-100 off the purchase price (I got mine for free and had the $100 credit. Didn't make a payment for two months! :D )

dude you're crazy. the map looks great, the data is provided by the best tom tom.

google came out with a youtube app in the marketplace finally. Plus theres always the mobile website, which works much better than than both apps

The YouTube app actually works better than the mobile site. And to be honest, I just saw the new Maps app and its ugly and not worth using. Google Maps is the most polished Maps application in the world. Then its Nokia Drive.

And for you android trolls, this iOS 6 thing is what is called an OS update. Something you will never see.
