 what bugs?  It's a Mavericks timing issue.   While I doubt they planned on simultaneous release, they had to a) announce and b) test it.  Now they just have to get the back end deployed (your desktop).
If the passwords are for logging into cloud/internet services... Does your point even matter? 
One reason android is the 'first option' is that the delivery time for an app across multiple platforms is so long....  You can start your iOS development much much later and still release at the same time.  ;-)
so much for carrying an iPhone during my old timers 4x100m relay competition;-)   But really, can 'theft' be measured purely by a motion filter?  and if so, how accurate is it.   -Palming a phone as you pass by a restaurant table -vs mugging someone and dashing away     - or getting in a getaway car     - vs you running to a cab and then taking off   Somehow that's gotta be pretty smart. ....Then again, what else does the M7* chip have to do when it's not...
I'm starting to get it.  iOS 7 and the iPhone 5c are all about 'accessorizing'
Just read my posts in this thread... I'm starting to sound like DED.... (sigh)...   Back to work.
 This. This is not a race to the bottom.  It's a marathon to get high value customers into your ecosystem. the 'c' line solves a couple problems1) Apple is now committed to 'fashion' with colors and phone covers (remember antenna-gate, and all the Apple Execs pulled their 4's out and not one had a case?...

 Yet, when Amazon lowers prices on Kindle, AWS, and starts requiring payment of state sales tax, Their stock price goes up 17% on profits of... nothing... they're losing money [sort of... they make money on the cashflow... smart]Or Google, who can't make decent hardware even after spending 15B to do so, is losing ad revenue, and is building out cheap Fiber Networks to the world....   there stock is up 30% over the last year... on 1/3rd the profit (adjusting for market...
The problem isn't 100 apps and customizing the screen... the problem is the navs within each of those apps, and letting go of a major interaction theme that Apple itself isn't ready to deploy until it gets the hardware right*** Having 100 different 'apps' on this platform will diverge it to the point of being worse than straight cable.  My guess is all of the above have been approached by apple, given the terms of the Apple Vision (not the vision itself), and they have...
