Why did you buy a first gen iPad 14 months ago, I thought you were informed? Things move on in the technology world, sorry to say that iOS6 just isn't for you.

Downloading the iOS 6 SDK now -- can't wait to try the new features.

1. I never said that I did. Probably because I didn't.

 

2. No, that is neither an excuse nor an explanation. Please try again.

No but it's reality. If you don't like the way Apple are acting then change supplier, it's simple. Nothing you do or say will make any difference to their strategy.

Users would not include you though.

 

One thing I will never understand in these forums is how much time and effort you spend commenting, defending, criticizing your own or other peoples views on product you dont even own or use yourself.

I can't really comment authoritatively on the stock market, but I thought the upgrades were great. 

 

I was hoping for some big change to the home screen/multitasking interface - Mission Control, Widgets, scrollable folders, quick settings access, etc. Didn't get any of that. At least not yet - they've thrown in features after the Beta release and even after the GM, so let's see. But on the other hand they did add some wonderful features. Navigation was iOS' most grievous weakness, and now it looks great. Siri looks more capable, let's hope she's a bit smarter too. Improvements to Notification Center, Phone, FaceTime, Safari, and iCloud look handy as well. VIPs, Passbook, Do Not Disturb, etc. look like useful real-world features. 

 

A solid upgrade, all in all. Combined with neat Mountain Lion features (at $19.99), iCloud enhancements, spec bumps on MacBooks, an awesome new MacBook Pro, and a redesigned Airport Express, and I'd say it was a great showing. Better than last years, IMO.

 

And yes, I'm glad for the Facebook integration.

post #51 of 82

is anyone having troubles getting the iOS beta's from the dev centre? I keep getting a "access denied" message and wondered if anyone knew a work around for this. My subscription is well in date and I want to try some of the new features for myself. 

 

Any ideas?

 

*dev forums won't load either!*

Keep in mind I own an iPhone and when the next one comes out, I'll buy that one too. I think they are better all-around devices than the Android devices. But the "Apple has iCould" argument just doesn't wash for me, since iCloud is so closed.

 

You obviously don't understand iTunes Match!  

 

1) It sends the info for every song in your iTunes library (purchased, ripped or unknown) to the cloud.

 

2) songs that match the  iTunes server are not uploaded -- they are made accessible (even if the server copy is higher quality)

 

3) unmatched songs are uploaded and made accessable

 

4) All songs stored on the iCloud are accessible by every computer or iDevice we own -- 6 Macs, 5 iPhones, 7 iPads.

 

 

So to get our 10,000 song library into the cloud took nay a couple of hours -- about 350 songs needed to be uploaded (and that was done automatically by the iTunes match program)

 

The total cost for songs was $0.

 

I can hardly wait until they include  movies, TV Shows, Home Movies, Training  Videos, etc.

You think that the stock movement - a stock movement of .5% - is indicative of the 100+ million apple iDevice users opinion of todays product updates?

 

That's funny.

post #55 of 82

This update is pretty underwhelming to me. 

What I really want to be able to do is have some sort of Finder so that I can upload images or files from my iPad onto web pages directly without having to have a separate app for craigslist, cnn, facebook, photobucket, etc. 

Also, side by side apps would be cool, to be able to drag and drop items from one app to the next (text, images, etc.)

The maps and navigation look neat and look forward to using that (does this effectively kill off all GPS apps in the app store?) 

One exciting feature- Siri for iPad, yes!! I've been waiting for this and I knew it would happen.

I was mildly surprised. But then again, you can buy a new iPhone 3GS from Apple today, but not a new first-gen iPad.

 

I've got a third-gen iPod touch, which also isn't supported, even though it's basically an iPhone 3GS minus the phone. I don't think it's anything to get upset over. Three years of running the current iOS isn't bad, especially since the AppleCare only covers two years.

I understand it completely. I rip all of my CD's at VBR, so there won't be a higher quality on the server.  All of my songs, purchased off iTunes or ripped from CD's are available through Google Music to all my other iDevices (2 iPhones and an iPad 2) and PC's.  Additionally, they are available through iTunes Home Sharing.

 

I'll also add that I don't have a library of 10,000 songs. We're probably at 10% of that, which is more music than we can listen to.

A brief recap of Apple’s “innovation” in the last few iOS.
versions:

iOS5:

Voice dictation – Stolen from Android, Siri was nothing more.
than using Android’s idea and “one-upping” them.

OTA updates – Stolen from Android.

Notification bar – Shamelessly stolen from Android.

Cloud services – Stolen from Android.

iOS6:

You can now ask Siri how tall LeBron is – Ok….

Facebook and Twitter integration throughout the OS – Stolen from.
Android, WebOS, and WP.

Contact syncing – Stolen from Android.

Homescreen actions when a call comes in – Stolen from.
Android

Do Not Disturb mode – Stolen from Cyanogen (aka Android).

Tab syncing in Safari – Stolen from Google (Chrome).

Lockscreen notifications – Stolen from Android.

Turn-by-turn navigation – Stolen from Android.

3D maps – Stolen from Google.

Well I'm known for not being the biggest fan of iOS but this new update did do what is was intented to do, add features that we've had for the last year on Android, so that's a good thing. I still find tbe interface childish and archaic and in desperate need of change. I really wanted to like this release but it brought absolutly nothing new that I want, not surprising Apple has no pressure anymore to do anything great with it. What I'm interested in is that new Macbook Pro, such a good price for what you get. I just wished they would have introduced that Retina display threw out the line. I'm a big fan of the Air series, I mean how can a tablet have it and not their best selling notebooks. Oh well maybe next year, I can wait I'm still happy with the previouse model.

The 3GS may be old now but it is a currently shipping product - the first iPad isn't. iOS 6 is available on all currently shipping iOS devices which is pretty much how this always works.

I'm expecting the 3GS to get dropped when the new iPhone comes out in September / October and the 4 and 4S to slip down into the roles currently occupied by the 3GS and the 4 so then next year the 4 will get iOS 7 and the 3GS won't.
post #61 of 82

Well, I think Siri learning sports is going to be worth the upgrade for me.  After initially thinking Siri was a pile of crap (it couldn't understand a word I said), it has clearly been refined over the months, and it understands a fair amount I say now, but the problem has been, the thing I most often want to ask (typically when I'm driving) is the Giants and Sharks scores.  Once it gets that, and now that it understands me, I actually think it will be a pretty cool feature.

 

The Facebook integration I wish you could turn off so you don't ever see it.  Call me a Luddite, but I hate the fact that Twitter and Facebook seem to be taking over the world, and since I don't have an account with either, I'd rather not even see the "Tweet" button in the Photo app.  I know I can ignore it, but damn it, I don't want to even see it!

 

The new Maps looks interesting.  Will be keen to try it out, though if there is no Street View, it'll be hard to move away from Google Maps completely.

I still don't understand the logic here. If the 3GS is discontinued when the next iPhone comes out, it won't be a "currently shipping product", hence it has no excuse for getting iOS 6. Therefore we can assume it won't be discontinued. But then that demands it also gets iOS 7, as someone could have bought an iPhone 3GS the day before the iPhone 7 launch, when it is 4 years and three months old, have it be a brand new phone, and then he'd go home and whine about how it doesn't get iOS 7.

 

It's a complete travesty that a two year old device doesn't get an update but a three year old device does.

Yea I totally agree about Facebook and Twitter, I find the two mediums to be very destructive to normal human communication and WILL be devastating to the human psyche after long exposure. More and more people are shutting themselves off, my husband and I have banned it from our house and from our children's computers and mobiles. However we have also banned the use of the Apple Store do to the kids spending their entire allowances on iTune gift cards, we got them each a Spotify account instead. My daughter however, like every child in her school have all Jail Broken their devices and are now sharing apps/music/movies, so if there are any parents out there be wary of that, our kids are bigger hackers then we were.

Hey if you want to keep it a secret then by all means carry on. From other posts I believe iPhone 4 and Original iPad are on that list, and I suspect all iPhones.

But back to these updates, what other manufacturers are you referring to that give free OS updates to 2 years old and older devices?

I don't know the reason for not including the iPad in iOS 6, but that doesn't mean it was arbitrary or a travesty, at least IMO. It's not like the machine ceases to function. I'm not shedding any tears, I think people who bought an original iPad have gotten more than their money worth.

Also, your comparison isn't quite apples to apples. How long has it been since apple stopped selling and producing the original iPad? As soon as the iPad 2 was available. By the time iOS 6 releases, it will have been 18 months since apple stopped MAKING them, not at all comparable to if apple discontinued the 3GS the day they release the new iPhone later this year.

The point of an allowance is to teach children the value of money, not to dictate and ban on what that money must be spent like some communist society. If they want to spend it all on iTunes, let them. When something else they want comes around, they don't get it because they don't have any money, and they learn where best to spend it. That's my take, anyway.

So let's assume that by Mountain Lion's release, the new Mac Mini and iMac are also released. By your logic, it's perfectly fine for Apple not to make Mountain Lion compatible with the current iMac and Mac Mini because they "weren't for sale when the software came out". See the problem? There has to be a uniform dividing line for this sort of thing.

Hhmmm, we will have to wait and see as I saved all of the responses from those who said it will never happen, it's useless, Apple knows best, blah, blah. This is going to be great of course it's like everything else once Apple does it, it's the next best thing since slice bread and all prior statements are thus void.

No. And it's 3:2. I don't think that 16:9 is good for anything but video. Being on a phone won't change that. I appreciate their attempt at making a larger screen that doesn't result in a wider phone, but 16:9 is a terrible end.

Watching the video of the presentation I was amazed how underwhelmed the audience was when Scott Forstall demoed the sports scores and such.  This was huge from a commercial point of view.  The lack of Siri to do these sorts of things is what makes most of the non nerd public go "so what."  Quick easy access to this sort of low brow information is going to drive huge use of Siri and iOS sales.  The fact that Apple clearly is driving to constantly add more functionality and easy access to more types of information is huge for the future of the platform.  I am now convinced that Apple is on the right track now with Siri, whereas before I wasn't because it seemed to be over the head of too many people.  I still don't have an iPhone with Siri and I am waiting for the next iteration.  This new functionality will make the wait all the better.

I'll also add that I don't have a library of 10,000 songs. We're probably at 10% of that, which is more music than we can listen to.

But you have to upload them all which takes hours/days of screwing around -- Mac/iOS users let the computers work for us!

It's a complete travesty that a two year old device doesn't get an update but a three year old device does.

Even though we all know it is coming the "new iPhone" doesn't officially exist yet, hence zero mention of it in the keynote. Jjust like the iOS 5 announcement last year supported "current models (and one back) only" with no mention of the 4S.

The 3GS is a currently shipping device at the time of the IOS 6 announcement which means I can go out and buy one now with iOS 5 on it and so should reasonably expect to be able to upgrade my 3 month old phone to iOS 6 which it comes out..

The original iPad hasn't been available to buy for nearly 15 months and has already seen two major iOS updates in its lifetime - I vaguely remember Apple mentioning something about this at some point around the 3GS release but I could be wrong - having shipped with iPhoneOS 3 and then being updated to iOS 4 and 5.

As I see it the 3GS is an exception due to having been kept alive as a current product much longer than you would normally expect from Apple in order to give them a foothold in the "budget" end of the market.

Gee, you sound like a really poor parent -- if you entrust the educetion of your children to the carnival barkers out there...

 

My daughter and I control what our kids buy on the Apple store -- it requires an [adult] account with a credit card!

 

It is so easy to blame technology for your incompetence as a parent -- because technology cannot defend itself...

 

Fortunately, some of us have learned to control technology... as well as what is appropriate for our children.

Still no video conference for Facetime??? Really? I was hoping that this would be on iOS 6. Video conference on iPad is a reasonable requirement rather than the iPhone because of the bigger screen capable of showing multiple preview video panes. Also, when PhotoBooth was released on iPad 2, Apple boasted that their graphic processor is powerful enough to handle 9 different video streams at the same time. SO WHY NO FACETIME VIDEO CONFERENCE YET?

Well you are lucky not to have tech savy children that can get around around any parental control, Jail Break there phones, add custom software, they also don't need a credit card when they are buying iTunes gift cards from the Grocery Stores. There are now clubs at school where they get together and share apps, music, TV Shows, Movies, ect. My son now has a Nokia 800 because he likes the Xbox Chat so he's no longer a problem. A teenage girl, who knows how to compile a Linux Kernel is a different game all together.

"Currently shipping" is a crap argument, as my post explained.

So your Internet connection is powerful enough to handle nine different HD video downloads at once? Didn't think so.

 

Hopeful-frigging-ly Messages and FaceTime combine in the 10.8 GM, but that's not going to happen.

No. And it's 3:2. I don't think that 16:9 is good for anything but video. Being on a phone won't change that. I appreciate their attempt at making a larger screen that doesn't result in a wider phone, but 16:9 is a terrible end.

So then is that it, will you stop buying the iPhone then? That's actually my real question and when the iPhone does go to that aspect ratio do you think it will only be a matter of time till the iPad does?

Probably. Can't say until I use it specifically, but I abhor the idea of 16:9.

Nope. You've seen those tablets; they're unusable.

 

And Apple THANKFULLY still cares about 16:10, so the plague of 16:9 is by no means all-encompassing.

There are third party apps on the app store which allow video conference, but I dont really like the app though. Would be great to see FaceTime have that option anyway. If the internet isnt fast enough to have video conference, then so be it. But its nice to have that option
