Apple seriously dropped the ball with this iOS 6 update. The only thing I like is the Do Not Disturb option, the lack of Google maps is horrible. On top of that most of my apps are crashing now or will not run... wtf... I think I'll just switch back to Android soon if Apple doesn't fix this.

iOS 6 > Jelly Bean???? LOL! Even Android 1.5 had more features ( and better maps ;p ) than iOS 6. JB is just in another dimension. Get over it.

Um yeah no, I don't think so, and the world smartphone marketshare doesn't think so either.

Probably more like Jelly Bean>WP8>iOS6>everyone else.

Once phonearena said that ios 6 goin top be the successful update and then jb and then wp 8.......
But now it's actually vice versa.....first comes wp8(but still not confirm what ms gonna deliver) then jb then ios 6.....
Actually am android fan but still have to accept that wp 8 is great update....but still wp can't reach heights of android......

And AAPL has been dropping ever since the problems started showing up. Looks like Apple needs the iPad Mini to save the day.

My drop in satisfaction began with ios4. I had hopes it would continue to grow in mor of a osX sort of way. I was obviously wrong. When iOS 5 came out I was quite unimpressed and now iOS 6 for me is nothing but a backwards movement. I held on to my upgrade for the iPhone 5 but have made the decision to wait for the note 2. The IPhone is still great for some, just no longer myself.

I believe that this is what Apple is going to start seeing more and more of.. people finally starting to become unsatisfied enough to start speaking from their wallets.

Great Post Hallucinator.

Who ever compares io6 to jelly bean needs to visit the rehab. Jelly beanis just magical like its name. Have you tried it? If not don't compare it to the crappy IOS

I don't think I've ever seen a serious argument for an android user where they used the term "magical" to describe its strengths :)

Would that be an android faux pas?
