Apple has lost its soul. It had no leader. It has spokespeople now for everything? Typical corporation.
Been Apple customer and fan since 1980.
iOS 6 is a mess. Partially refined and mistakenly refined.
Maps is a joke. Not even beta but alpha.
App Store: why break what was fine? Harder to find apps.
And hiring the guy from Dixons is an antithesis to Apple retail.
This is the way big corporations become without a strong leader.
Apple is losing its footing
Hopefully we will have some good competition soon and that will be Microsoft.
If you're disappointed with Apple, I shudder to think what you'll experience with MS. They can't even get their barely-adequate platform off the ground. Their attempts in mobile are failing, Nokia is running out of time (rumour has it Nokia might go Android to save themselves), some major carriers have no plans to carry Windows Phone devices, and Win 8 is turning into a dud - whether it's Pro or RT or whatever they're calling it.
Apple, even on their worst day, is still miles better than MS on their best.
The only real problem with iOS 6 is Maps. That's about it. Other than that, it'll be at the fore of a blockbuster holiday quarter for Apple.
