this is true, apple is straight up ripping off android the more apple tries to progress.. its so funny how the game is turning around to android's favor.

seeing these features come out, each update at a time, is just amusing us android fans.. Its amazing to see how much Apple is behind

You are a FOOL! On my RAZR it is BUILT INTO THE PHONE! You can go into the apps drawer and there is no facebook app to be found, it is integrated fully into the OS and has been for some time. Apple is the one playing catchup.

Passcode and Bookshelf (Or whatever it's called) are also bloatware from Apple, you can't uninstall them and on iOS you can't even disable them or hide them from your homescreen. The only reason it isn't bloatware to iFans is because Apple says it's a new feature, and you idiots totally eat it up, even if you don't use it.

At least on Android, bloatware can be hidden from the app drawer and on ICS can be disabled completely.

Me thinks you are a prime candidate to see that amazing Youtube video series called Android vs iOS The Truth About Google and Apple's OS's.

I don't even look at it as copying anymore; it really is a case of, "do you have this feature?" and Apple did what they needed to do. iOS6 looks great to me, and that turn by turn GPS that keeps many folks on Android is now a feature on iOS.

cheap android phones can do live wallpaper while iPhone can't

cheap android phones can show widgets while iPhone can't

iOS is just an OS consists of pages of apps & folders, no multitasking, no live tiles, nothing. i think WP is better than iOS because they do real live tiles while keeping the fluidity & don't make me start talking about jellybean

@ rickywinataa
The sad part is that (some) cheap Androids like ZTE's can record calls while the most expenive ones can't :-(

holy crap. there couldnt be more android rip offs in that slide show if they tried.

if iOS5 was "now with a taste of android"

then iOS 6 is "what the heck,we are not even hiding it, we love android and want those features"

not me too, what?

i realize you like iOS, but my god, 90%+ of those features have existed on android for months to years. for a company that claims everyone copies them, they sure are obvious about their copying.

it wouldnt be a big deal had apple and its local idiot trolls not been stomping around for the last few years claiming apple is original and everything else is a copy.

remix we are cool... u know that...lol

i was just expecting today a hoard of android apple haters to flood with "obvious" comments...lol of course the updates in iOS 6 are currently on older android OS's ...

its not a disappointment for apple users THEY NEVER SEEN OR USED THESE FEATURES

i guess i wasn't expecting you to join in with the "dead horse" beating...haha

its not that i like iOS/ICS/WP8 its that i was happy to see them add things they should've added a long time ago...

oh, i know :)

but like i said.. its not the fact that they are getting them. Its the months and years of BS statements from apple and the itrolls about "copying" and "stealing" that make it whatever big deal that it is.

remixfa is absolutely correct.. iOS is a blatant rip-off of now what Android is
