    I second this opinion.

    What's new exactly? Apple always steals from their jailbreakers... It's a brilliant idea actually, it cures exactly to what the public wants.

    The app called "Bluetooth" allows easy springboard toggling of Bluetooth WITHOUT jailbreaking. It's actually a pretty clever app, download it from the AppStore and follow the directions to make it work. I used it in my iPad 3 before the jailbreak. It was a lifesaver.

    Don't get me wrong its cool to test the new OS..not worth losing my current jb to do so. None of these enhancements are worth it. I can wait until the jb comes out for iOS 6

    These devices are just getting closer to the NSA spy's dream device. Why do people need bookface integrated into their phone when there's an app? Why can't you get a version that has no Siri?

    Why would they make two models of the same phone just to have one without Siri when there's already a toggle to turn it off?

    funny thing is is that none of this is exactly jailbreaks devs to say it was their original idea that got borrowed. otherwise this could be titled "what jailbeak devs borrowed from other companies" one was even apple considering the do not disturb function was on the mountain lion betas before it was made for iphone.

    ...and tether, five icon(s), plethra of personalized "look & feel" and audio variations...

    Actually, some valuable reasons to still jailbreak. But at this rate, maybe in another ten years.

    it's hard to say some of these items were "borrowed" when they were rather obvious.
    I agree with this. A few of these were already in the works or Apple was planning on implementing them anyway, so they weren't borrowed from the JB community. I know I'll always wish for more JB items to be in iOS, but this update was pretty dang good!

    I they'd incorporate sbsettings or intelliscreenX & irealsms, there wouldn't be a need for me to jailbreak. Toggles & quickreply are much needed.

    None of these were "stolen", rather just implemented later than the jailbreak community. Rather, if it had to be put as "stolen" it would be the jailbreak community who has "stolen" these ideas and implemented them before apple could find practical, politically correct ways to.

    Honestly...how can you say something is stolen when it originated from rumours/changelogs etc.
