Now I must connect my phone to iTunes. I wish Apple was as good as people think they are.


It's not Apple, it's you.

Not Apple's fault you didn't buy a 32/64/128.

Although I agree with you, its a joke that they even offer 16GB.

I just had to have my usual fight with the fingerprint sensor to get my phone unlocked*. Hopefully that's the last time I'll have to deal with it but I'm not optimistic.




*Yes I know I can just use my passcode but it's the PRINCIPLE! Plus I'm insane.

Guys some of you guys know my question by now.. :cool:


Does Safari finally get Flash support? No, that would be terrible.

But it does seem a bit snappier...for whatever that is worth ;)
