Well, it would, since Android basically is Java. Native ARM apps are possible with appropriate Java wrappers but there's usually not much point to doing that.

Ah, that makes sense.

^ There used to be a trick by which you could get Newsstand to go into a folder (basically, you stack two other icons on top of each other so as to create a folder, then RIGHT as the new folder is being created, drag Newsstand into it) but Apple appears to have quashed this 'feature'.

That's not a new feature. I've always been able to put core apps in folders on my iPod. Well, except for Newsstand, for some reason.
I could never do it in iOS 5. Odd.

Re: iOS 6 released

Has anyone had their iPhones suddenly unable to connect to the cellular data network after updating to iOS 6? My phone (iPhone 4S) has that problem, and so does my dad's (he just got an iPhone 5, which came with iOS 6 preinstalled). I've heard talk about this on the Apple discussions forum as well.

Not a really pressing issue, since I almost never use cellular data anyway - I stick to WiFi to avoid getting hit with overage fees - but it is annoying.

I am NOT having this problem, but I have heard of it from friends on FB.

I have not. I believe the prevailing opinion out there is to do the update through the most recent version of iTunes, but I can't say that will fix it.

I would do a full restore through iTunes. If you haven't done one in a while, worth doing it.

Re: iOS 6 released

My iPhone 4S updated in around 20 minutes over wifi the other day, no problems at all so far.

If anything the battery lasts a little longer now. I got the new youtube app out of the store the same day, everythings running fine, no problems with the lastest version of iTunes either.

Someone up thread mentioned folder-ing the core apps, the iPod touch could do that on 4.3, my iPhone could do it back on 5.0 (iTunes, App, Apple, Remote and iMessage all in one folder).

Just not so amazed by the new map system, and apparently, neither is Apple.

Check out this analysis of the new map feature, by a Canadian user. It's a bit shocking.

Re: iOS 6 released

After playing around with the new Apple Map last night, that doesn't surprise me at all. I kept trying to get it to recognize my address on the map, but it kept telling me I was at another address a mile down the road. It refused to accept my actual address's existence.

Yikes, but yeah I've been hearing for days now how bad the app is.

Re: iOS 6 released

So glad I didn't upgrade to iOS6, and i won't be until they integrate public transit into the native Maps (I don't drive, live in a city), and of course just improve the Maps in general. I went ahead and upgraded on an ipad, figuring the maps aren't as big a deal on a wifi tablet, so I've done direct comparisons. There is a huge gulf in quality of data. Apples got about a year to improve it dramatically or im going to Android. The whole debacle has reminded me of how much I like and use Google services.

Re: iOS 6 released

If they wanted to, they could can their own App and put an updated version of the old one up with 6.1.

Odds are that won't be happening. Next time around I may well check out the latest Samsung models too.
