LMAO, I've been rocking the GM for one week (wi-fi working), tried wi-fi just a couple of minutes out of curiosity and indeed it loaded a login screen, followed by the success text, and then it just worked.

Silly Apple.

That implementation is just mindbogglingly stupid. Offensive even. I didn't know ios devices were doing this.

Ugh, updating my wife's iPhone 4 now and it seems to be hanging in the update process where the Apple and progress bar is on the screen. Fuck me.

edit: nvm, progress bar is moving, but this is going way slower than my phone was....

Apple built the Map's app not google, Apple doesn't have google's database anymore so they basically have to start over. From what i heard the data they have for maps is not super great.

-appstore is fugly and runs like a joke
-white background on Phone and Music is terrible. Why can't I choose for fucks sake?
-new maps suck

You really think apple will let Google release a maps app after all the hype they been doing for there own?
They already released Chrome and YouTube, and Baidu and other already have the maps app.
Besides, Google Earth is on the App Store. Basically another Google mapping service.

Ugh, just realised that with Apple's Youtube app gone, there is no way to use Youtube as a music player any more :(

Using Google's Youtube app, the moment you turn the screen off, the audio stops.

I might actually jailbreak for the first time just to get that app back...

Is there any information about how ios6 performs on an iPhone 4?
I dont wanna update if its worse than 5 is
I'm having way better performance on an iPhone 4 than I was having with iOS 5, it seems to be the case to most people but ymmv. Maybe a restore (in case you haven't done one in a while) may help things if it seems to run worse.

iPod Touch 4G seems to be "snappier" overall. I was getting frequent bouts of mini-freezeups with 5.1.1

Might've even gotten me to hold off on getting a 5th gen Touch if I didn't have a lot of cracks in my screen from dropping it so many times :(

Does the fact that the UI is no longer uniform across Apple's own apps bug anyone else as much as it does me?

The spotty wifi thing is happening for me too, frustrating.

Aside from that, is anyone else having trouble with Passbook? I see the first time splash page explaining what the app does, but when I press the go to the App Store button it says "Cannot connect to iTunes store." However, if I just go to the iTunes store regularly it loads proper. Weird.

Seems like auto brightness works in the lock screen and not main screen.

Tried restarting. This is bull.

So whenever I try opening Passbook it tells me "Cannot Connect To iTunes Store" even though my connection works fine and I can open both the iTunes Store and App Store on their own. Am I doing something wrong?

I can agree with this sentiment. It was getting worse too before.
