    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 agree. Apple is behind the times with features that other phones have had for years, but then again other companies have been making phones for years. As far as shelf life for phone models...Apple has come further than other companies in a very short time period. They shouldn't have 5 phones that they have to keep 5 different firmwares up to date. Look at Android. They are facing this exact same issue right now. I am skipping the iPhone 5 and getting the iPhone 6 if they are jailbreakable. The same goes with the iPad. I am skipping the iPad 2 and will get the iPad 3 unless by then another manufacturer has finally released a touchpad with a real OS.

    Maybe if Apple spent less time fighting jailbreakers and releasing crap software updates to combat them and blowing alot of money on crap sub-par updates.....then they would have more time to concentrate on releasing a true quality software update and actually CATCH UP to the rest of the cell phone world among other things.

    I think this recent 4.0 update was supposed to have something like 100 new features, but can anybody actually name every single feature? I sure can't. Or is it just some number Apple threw out to glorify their OS.

    Don't forget, every iOS update does fix some of the previous bugs but it brings new and useless features and even more bugs.

    The way its going iOS 5 will just be bugs and faults with nothing new and it will remove a lot of useful features. Oh, thats unless you buy the latest iDevice then it will work fine.

    I have come to the realization...

    Stick with the firmware your device came with. Jailbreak it. Be happy. The next firmware won't be any better than what came with the device.

    I've learned this on every iPhone. Sticking to 3.2 or whatever it is on the iPad. Works fine, has multitasking. Forget 4.2. Didn't speed up my 3G at all. Still sucks. Apple wins. I'm getting an iPhone 4 first week of December.

    Android is winning with another fail from Apple.

    I'm recommending people go for any Android phone only coz I haven't seen/used a Windows phone yet.

    I've recommended people stay away from the iPhone ever since I got one.

    i think they should make a new and more apelative UI, cause with the succes of android and with the interface of windows phone 7 they make iOS appear too old. the only thing that apple is better for now is the apple store. that is my opinion. i love my iphone 4,i just think they need some inovation

    My iPad desperately needed 4.x.x to bring it up to speed with folders, AirPlay and Airprint. Its a tethered JB for now but you know what, most everything i use on my iphone works on the iPad. I am looking forward to an untethered JB tho.. Although this since i have jailbroke 2 days ago i have only re-booted my iPad 3 or 4 times and that is just installing stuff through Cydia. no big deal. The battery life lasts forever on the iPad, like 10+ hours so i rarely let it die completely.

    Fix those bugs apple. I will keep updating, jailbreaking, and unlocking! Thanks to all the devs involved in keeping our iDevice free of APPLE's BS!

    Wrong. You are thinking of 1.1.3, and 1.1.4 (and let's not forget the iPod touch 1g's pointless 1.1.5 update.) Those arent 1.3 and 1.4 firmwares.

    Still on 3.1.2 and happy. Waiting for something decent to come out in iOs 4 that makes upgrading worth it.

    *Conspiracy Theory*
    Apple has realeased more updates in a given period of time than prior years. These updates hurt JB developers as it's time consuming to update their code. Thus attempting to frustrate them and the JB community from continuing.

    *Fact*
    Apple best developments on the iPhone were ideals taken directly from JB apps. (This fact is debatable, but Folders and Backgrounding were great ideas)

    The reality is we feel Apple is out to get us. Probably true due to the nature of updates, but they would lose their source of good ideas for the iOS.
