    And why is it foolish? Any going back to HDR, I always use that feature on my phone. That feature came 2.5 months after 4.0 released. Glad I didn't have to wait 9.5 more months for it on 5.0. But maybe I'm foolish for thinking that.
    That's not what I meant. I meant expecting new features in a X.1 release is foolish since since it has happened very seldomly.

    Apple typically releases new features with major versions as to coincide with the release of the latest iPhone.

    Anyway, we're back on the subject of adding bells and whistles to iOS which I don't think is going to happen in the foreseeable future (not to say that it doesn't need improvements and change) and it is rather off topic.

    I think this is more aimed at bug fixes since they most likely have most of their time and resources devoted towards IOS7 especially if the rumors of a new iphone coming in the summer holds true. They would need to be pretty far along in the development and testing of IOS7 if that's the case, and hence less being added to IOS6.

    I just hope an OTA goes out soon and it fixes these horrible WiFi issues.
    I must have gotten lucky because I have no wifi issues. Hope it does fix the problem for those having issues.

    I'm just gonna be frank and honest in this statement: I haven't relied on Apple for "features", especially any "innovative" ones in many years...

    I think the point where I lost that last shred of faith was when 5.x major release hit and the damn OS still doesn't even have TOGGLES! At least ones not tucked deeply in the randomly placed settings hierarchy. I mean... toggles really. Their failure to implement this fundamental feature this many years into things shows me a real disconnect between their vision and a practical one.

    It got worse, though; if you recall, people discovered a back door "hack" that used internal URL schema to actually create makeshift toggles on the home screen by using the links that jumped directly to specific sections in the settings app? Still not fully satisfactory, but it saved 20 taps here, 30 taps there... and how did Apple react? They "fixed the error"! So even desperate measures to create makeshift functionalities are stifled.

    I got fed up. Then I realized all the things that I *wished* iOS could do; it actually COULD do.

    Now, NCSettings from Cydia and it takes me 1 second to shut off any features that I wasn't needing. Slide down Notification Center, tap toggle, battery life increased tremendously just by making this habit.

    It's not for everyone, but if you decide to JB your phone, you'll never want for any feature ever again. If you're JB and familiar with how brilliantly a few tweaks can turn a PITA user experience to a total pleasure... you know why I'm unconcerned with what asinine feature Apple may toss the peons here and there because invariably, that feature (and likely even a more robust/slicker implementation of it) has been available in Cydia from months to years prior to Apple actually adding it!

    I'm not condoning JB but no, actually I totally am. It's legal to JB (unlocking is now a different story), and the greatest risk to you is possible warranty termination. If you're dumb enough to send them a JB phone to fix...

    If you've had your phone for over a year and f**k! You didn't get AppleCare? Your warranty has already expired anyway. At that point you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain (unless you are reckless or dumb and don't back up your phone first)...

    I'm so used to the pleasantries and conveniences of a JB iPhone that now, when I'm using someone else's that isn't, it feels so roundabout, lacking and just it feels like I'm using a crippled shareware version of iOS, actually. That's a pretty decent analogy, actually!

    I am sure they will pick and choose things from the jb community to add to IOS like they have been doing slowly over the years. Wish they would just hire the jb devs and let them integrate their hacks into IOS making it much better.
    BLiNK and swarlos like this.

    What change log has there been since the first beta came out? I went straight from 6.0.2 to 6.1 beta 5 so I have no clue what I missed .

    Was wondering with 6.1b5 if anyone knows if there cellular and data reception is any better/worse then when they were on 6.0.1 or .2? Just curios because my home does not get the best LTE service, and if 6.1b5 made it worse I would just stay on the 6.0.2.. any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    they don't release the changelog unless you are/know a developer who could show you since they are under a NDA. but mostly it is bug fixes and if you are in the US can order movie tickets with siri.

    So I'm assuming you need a UDID slot to install the beta from ATFDL?

    NVM got it!

    I have a dev account and my mini is registered. I also attempted to do a "update" instead of a "restore" from 6.0.2 and it worked. Normally you would need to restore to go from official to beta. Another reason why I'm thinking this is more than just a beta.
    I don't have dev account and always did shift click on update and selected the beta file on windows. Works since 6.0 beta

    Depends on what system resources are allocated to other apps when the benchmark test is done. I've seen it fluctuate.

    That's actually quite poor for LTE. I usually get way more than that on HSPA+.
