That's about right Should be good timing for fall release, just like the 4s did.

In related news, 20 different android POS phones will be release before the 5s...

ummm, I'm sorry bitter about what???


13 minutes, not watching lol. iOS is by far the easiest OS to use. I'm not getting in a debate about this again... Use what you want to use, it's all personal pref.

Also, he's using a iphone 4 with iOS 5... This shouldn't even be in this "iphone 5" thread...

I do know that EVERYONE I know that has purchased an iPhone, has never gone to any other phone, and if they do, they complain about that phone's complexity. My friend that owned a 4s recently purchased a Samsung Note 2 and wouldn't stop bitching about how much the OS blows and how much crap is on the phone that doesn't need to be. He sold it and got a 5. Once you stop being a Apple hater and actually use the product without bias opinion, you will realize how easy the iPhone is to use and how much more solid the feel of it is...

I may be an iPhone fanboi, but I have given other phones chances... I have tried everything from a HTC EVO 2 to a Samsung SIII... They just don't compare, the touch screen is laggy, the programs are laggy, and they always seem to need a restart after a good day of use... JUST MY OPINION, don't get your panties all in a bunch

.....after watching the video a bit... That guy is a moron... Did he really just try to make a point that clicking on a link won't let you decide WHICH browser to use?! WTF, just use ONE browser! lol, it's not supposed to be that hard AND Seriously, he used a ZAGG protector, that right there just proves he's an idiot, look at that orange peel He probably tells people ZAGG is the best protector too lolol

"when you get a bunch of apps it gets really cluttered---SURE THERE ARE FOLDERS, but..." No 'but' dude, that IS EXACTLY the point of having FOLDERS lolol


God, I could pull SOOOO many quotes from that video that make that dude sound like a complete idiot...

Tampa- cool it.

And one rumor said the 5S may be released Q1 or Q2 of 2013- ahead of the typical schedule. I have a feeling Apple has something big up their sleeve for next spring- bigger than anything that's happened recently.

Scott Forestall was fired, so that's a plus and could be the source of big changes. Looking at how iOS has developed, especially the last WWDC and iOS 6, I'm surprised he lasted this long. The "Steve Jobs and I were close" card finally ran out. It's even more surprising when there's brain dead simple, yet incredibly useful features available for jail breakers staring them in the face, yet they can't seem to add them to the stock OS. The ideas are already there, just use them.

Anyways, apparently Forestall wasn't getting along with anyone (especially Ive) , and Cook basically had to babysit at every meeting that the two of them were at together, which was few since they avoided each other. They refused to work together at all. I'd bet money this is part of the reason why iOS has stagnated so much, and now that Ive is in control of software, things will start improving more rapidly than they have since '07. It's about time too, as Google is firing on all cylinders right now with 4.1 and 4.2, and Windows Phone 8 is now hitting the market in full force.

Yes it's about time. One more year of relatively incremental changes and I might have been out. Right now I don't think iOS is really behind, but the other operating systems are certainly growing at a faster pace than iOS. The one thing I miss from jailbreaking is SBSettings. They should really include the Wi-fi toggle and a couple others in the notification center- or in the bottom bar imo.

The 920, One X and Nexus 4 are all very nice phones. None of them can touch the Apple music base and integration from library to phone, and that's my main concern. I'm not a fan of subscription services or the cloud.

At least with 64gb and the great audio quality the One X+is getting close. I wish there was an "iPod" app available for the other OSes. Even if I was motivated to switch, I have too much music to cut and run without a clear, well developed alternative.

What exactly does the ipod do that nothing else does? You can set up the same sync functionality with iTunes using synctoy or any backup utility.

Really? That's the part I hate the most: dealing with iTunes and the hoops I have to jump through to sync, update, restore...

What do you mean? What's stopping you from simply importing your music into any other phone?
