You need to learn how to jailbreak

Apple should implement live icons/tiles.

Seriously, would it be that difficult to have a live updating weather icon? That was the one that bugged me the most.

You didn't get my point... smoke/mirrors "solved" the problem, why expose the company to potential law suites by admitting fault?
The Map thing... he felt personally responsible. Map won't be fixed for a while. Easy to reproduce. He took extreme PR measures (by Apple standards): admit fault and apologize.

But android is just a copy of iOS, right? Minus the widgets, it's the same layout.
A grid of icons. It's old news.

Yes,

Settings>notifications>messages>Repeat alert> choose how many times you want it to re-alert you.

Interval of 2 minutes.

Ah alright I see. They did face a class action lawsuit though, hence the free bumper cases or $15.

True that there's no quick fix for maps though like a bumper case was for the antenna. Google spent a decade building their product. Acknowledging and apologizing was probably the best call

Look at nokia. Blatantly copying the design of the newly released iPod nano. It figures that they want to copy the most innovative company in the world.

Mine synced with iCloud. If you create a restore point in iTunes, that works too.

Finally took my iPhone 5 out of the box today (had it since the 21st) after my Incipio DualPro arrived in the mail. All I can say right now is that, coming from an iPhone 4, it's an absolute world of difference.
