Personally the way i look at it we all whine and moan about these sorts of things from apple but ultimately we have all the power. If any of us would just spend 1 hour studying apples track record for the past 5 years we should more than expect this. They make small changes,keep it simple, and keep it stable. But i digress we as the consumer have all the power. As said on stage by someone ( i forgot) they have sold 350 + million i devices from Jan-Mar..... the bottom line is the day consumers as a whole decided that Apple is Not doing good enough and we stop buying their products they are going to be forced to make changes. Research in motion is going through this right now and apple is simply following in there footsteps. The only difference is that apple has Rims mistakes to learn from...

To me Apple provides a platform that through jailbreaking I can customize to meet my needs just like we all do with our computers. The thing that gets me is Apple feels like they have the right to continually come out with minor OS updates and stop signing older versions. If anything should happen and the phone needs to be restored we get "blanked". For instance, just because MS comes out with Win 8 everyone isn't forced to upgrade if they need an OS refresh - they can just reinstall Win 7 or whatever they have.

Boring. Disappointing. Facebook integration is nothing new, it's just bringing back something that was developed (and should have been included) long ago. Maps, sure it uses Apple's maps now but it's basically the same functionality as far as I'm concerned, couldn't care less. Turn-by-turn, not something I'll use and I already had "an app for that."
Kind of sucks that the biggest thing I'm looking forward to is the DND function.
I also like the fact you won't be taken out of the app store when you download/upgrade but IMO it should have been like that all long.
I don't remember what it was like in the past but hopefully they'll introduce a major new feature or two closer to or at launch.

Been an iPhone user/family since 3G but like many of you am BORED with the STALE UI!
With no meaningful UI changes on the horizon, the 4S may have been our last iOS device.
Apple is now treating users like children that are incapable of customizing their own home screens.
Time to move on.

Not very exciting
Let me preface this with: I was, and still am, a complete webOS fanboy. However, seeing as there isn't any new webOS hardware on the horizon, I was ready to make the jump to iOS6/iPhone5. Android is a mess (I have CM9 on my Touchpad), and I'm not that interested in BB10 (maybe I should be). I've been using WindowsPhone for the last 7 months and it is BORING. It's just not fun to use. The email is leagues beyond any other mobile email, but other than that, it sucks. So, I was really hoping to be wowed by iOS6. What a let-down. Nearly everything they showed off could have been accomplished with an app. The rest has been part of every other mobile OS since PalmOS. In fact, iOS UI reminds me of PalmOS.
So, now I'm not so sure I want to enter the world of Apple. I really wanted to see some significant multitasking and notification updates. The ONLY thing I saw from iOS6 that was even a blip on the usefulness radar was the ability to add email attachments from the compose screen. No updates to file system for documents/photos was also a big let-down.
Maybe I'll just dust off the ol' Pre2 and wait until iOS6/iPhone5 gets a jailbreak.

i think some people here are missing the point. yes, of course jailbreakers had these things eons ago but not the "average" iPhone user which are the ones who are the majority of sales every year
they could care less if you had "Pull to Refresh" 5 years ago. all they care about, and should, is the fact that they will be getting it in a few months and they do not have to tinker with their device either
i also think when you get all of us "techy" peeps together in one place then it just becomes a pissing match between Team Pure and Team JB. believable it or not the majority of iPhone users DO NOT CARE! lets just lay our wieners on a table and get it over with!

I like my iPhone because of all the apps, speed, and stability. And because of jailbreak, I don't even care what the ui is, because you can change it up and get what you want. Dream board is pretty cool, and I have the os7 revive theme on my phone. Im very satisfied.

All you who are critical over the lack of perceived advancement in the iOS UI, what the heck do you all want Apple to do here? I'm all for a UI change if it works better. What's going to do that? If you all have any ideas, I'm all ears. Otherwise I don't know what you guys even want.
