6.1.5 for the iPod touch? I've never heard of Apple releasing an update for an older version of iOS. Kudos to them.


Yeah, real kudos to them. I'm really pleased that the 'FaceTime' bug has finally been fixed -- you know, the one everybody's been complaining about -- and yet they still find time to make an incremental update to last year's iOS.

I mean, forgetting the other bugs with iOS 7, such as Messages outright refusing to paste anything when you double-tap, issues with devices respringing if they're using a superior 64-bit chip, and the fact that Siri is utter, utter gash ... yeah, I just couldn't be happier for Apple. Good job, guys.

You're kidding, right?

Why would he be kidding?

Look at how often Android handsets get updated?

We've had 4 since iOS7 release 2 months ago. Averaging 2 per month. Not bad. Constant stream.

Not sure if it's unparalleled, but they are pretty quick. 4 bug fix updates in less than two months is pretty good.

How is it that Apple always fixes bugs no one even knew existed, yet long standing bugs such as the iPad gestures that look and feel horrible are still present?
