Thread: Is iOS 4.3 Just Weeks Away?
11-25-2010, 12:56 PM #21
I am in the middle of downgrading my iPad back to 3.2.2 as 4.2.1 has so many bugs.
I hope they add USB support back to the camera USB addon as I could no longer read any USB sticks with the new error "This USB device uses too much power"

I look at it a little differently. Let them pump out 12 firmwares a year as far as I am concerned. Most phones are the same phone from the day you buy it to the day you buy a different phone to replace it. The iPhone is constantly updated to provide new content for the endusers.

I still see no real reason to update from 4.1. Too much of a headache with compatibility issues and no new useful features (not for me, anyway. I understand iOS 4.2 was cool for some, but the only Apple device I use is my iPod). 4.3 sounds like a total waste if this is all they're really doing. The Fox app does all this for free, not to mention the other ten news apps (at least).

So the dev team may not even bring out there unlock then cos it would just get patched.. So this mean I justhave a expensive iPod till the next FW update unless the decide they are gonna come out with the unlock, I'm gonna stay on 4.1 till the big release if the FW

They have to fix 4.2 first before talking about 4.3

Apple have added about 5 major things to the iOS since it's release, App Store, Copy and Paste, Multitasking, Folders and home screen wallpaper?
Most phones already had those features back in 2007 anyway. Things like GameCenter, iBooks, iMovie etc should not be considered a new feature as they could be downloaded from the App Store.
iOS 4.3 will have the same boring dull grey UI with features that 90% of people won't notice like with 4.2.

I'll stick with 4.1 jailbreak until I see something worth upgrading for.
Seriously it's just to much work for nothing sometimes.

I haven't tried 4.2 on the iPad but it feels buggy on my iPhone 4. I keep getting app closes or delayed notifications. To the person who said this would be the first *.3. There was a 1.3 and a 1.4 for the original iPhone.

I don't see how people can think that Apple purposely roll out updates to hinder jailbreaks and find bugs because they're lazy. Jailbreaking isn't Apple's first priority. They don't approve of it, but they're not going to waste money and man-hour just to block it. Also, some of you guys need to be more reasonable. There's going to be bugs in software. Of course Apple's going to need feedback from their customers to find bugs because there's so many people using their products doing everything on it that their staff may miss. As long as Apple responds by pushing out updates to resolve these issues I'll be satisfied.
Anyway, I can't wait to update my iPad, I'm just holding off until Dev-Team comes out with an untethered jailbreak.

For all others that are saying that Apple sucks because of the buggy software updates chill out I mean it is of the few times this has happened and personally most of times I never realize what has changed in minor upgrades so what's the problem to stay with 4.0 or 4.1?
My iPhone works perfectly and I love iOS 4 haven't found anything that bothers me.

I don't think apples on a vendetta, they're just closing exploits. I'm sure they don't mind closing them though. Lol

Thats all they did till jailbreaking became legal and now they are not saying anything but still fighting against it every chance they have.
Look at my previous comment. They also remove features that are really useful just coz they are bastards.
I'm talking about the ability to use the camera usb dongle to connect usb sticks to the iPad. In 3.2.* you could, in 4.2.1 you no longer can.
After you jailbreaked your iPad you can use iFile to access any files on a USB stick and copy to and from it. No longer will Apple let you do this as they are still crying over jailbreaking and anything you can do with it.

Another update just for the news publications? Maybe if they would have been able to release 4.2 a lot sooner this might make more sense. It just seems like Apple is pumping out updates without carefully patching all the bugs.
