This is not something you would have expected to see in relation to Apple. Your local news service providing a method of restoring your old OS if you have upgraded to OS6 and have discovered that you really, really, really, don't want it.

See:http://www.news.com.au/technology/ap...-1226480545191

It hasn't been a good week for Apple, and I think it might be the start of "not a good month" or longer.

Yes, because everyone has a smart phone and will never buy another!

There are two possible reasons for that;

2. You don't speak English well enough to understand

Well enough to understand.

Please provide contradiction.

Related to number two -- which I contradicted.

You probably need to look up 'contradict'.

We could get into a semantical argument here, but it wouldn't actually be fair. After all, I am a native English speaker; you, clearly, are not. I won't get drawn into that, you're perfectly capable of making a fool of yourself without me helping you.

Yes, and it doesn't look very likely to be an iphone for the vast majority of Chinese.

Yep, and I still say that it has not been a good week for Apple. Winning the lottery when your house is on fire is not something that most would regard as a great day. The evidence that I have seen indicates that fixing Maps will take years if they don't licence other technology.

I am one of the many who has rolled back to 5.1.1. The only thing I miss is the ability to selectively silence my phone at night.

It's better, but it's also more expensive. The average monthly phone bill is usually about $20 US more than other carriers.

I've chosen to remain on iOS6. Today for the first time (now that the rush is over) I went to have a look at the iPhone 5. I want one, now. I didnt, before, but I ran ibooks to see how it would work on a long screen and its just fine. Its lightweight, and it will do me nicely. However I can't afford one so its likely I'll really end up with someone's castoff 4S

I find it fascinating how a few grams less weight is promoted as a feature to men who spend money on Gym memberships in order to lift weights. Incongruous.

Four people in our office have the iPhone 5 and ALL of them have issues with the anodising showing through. Not the normal Apple quality control. I'll stick with my 4S, it is a fine phone, it does everything I need and once they sort out the problems with OS6 I'll upgrade again. I don't need Apple or Google maps, as I paid for METROView a commercial mapping app.

I have been allocated a new iPhone 5 but I am not going to even unpack it. It can join the still un-packaged spare (company supplied) iPhone 4S in my desk drawer. They keep company with several unused BlackBerry 9020/50 Touch phones. I keep getting new phones but continuing to use my old one. Too lazy to set up a new phone when the one I have is set up just the way I like it and works just the way I want it.
