Allow me to say what everyone’s probably thinking.

Meh.

meanwhile Android is kicking it into higher gear with JellyBean and taking over the market.

Apple…stupid gimmicks like Siri isn’t what the consumer wants…they want a more fluid and accessible OS.

iOS is dying fast…

such an exciting update…
Gosh, I’ve been waiting my whole life to be able to buy movie tickets via Siri. Hooray!

Jailbreak…can we happen now, please? 🙂

First thing to come to my mind too aha

Haha, so it was a GM release! Man, Apple, get your stuff right! Jailbreak…can we happen now, please? 🙂

Yeah, dying fast…record breaking Q4, but the iPhone is garabage nobody wants huh?

Too bad most Android phones don’t get updates. And few are actually running jelly Bean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly_Bean_(operating_system)#Android_4.1.2F4.2_Jelly_Bean

Downloading now to see if this will finally resolve the absolutely atrocious call quality with the iPhone 5 (robotic voice, cutting in and out, etc). If not, bye bye iPhone…

Really? You may want to check with an Apple Store. My call quality is 10x what it was on the 4s.

iOS does not need JellyBean to not lag. I’m always wondering what these people think when they are writing something like what the quoted author said. The point of Jelly Bean (Project Butter) was to make Android lag less and android fanboys call it the greatest thing ever happend to Android, while iOS really has had it from the beginning (full hardware acceleration).
