    Also, as far as it being outdated, I was perfectly happy before and it's only a 1 1/2 year old. I'm not ready for it to be concidered obsolete. That's rediculous. Just keep it running good apple and if that means not making an update available on an older device so be it.

    True, don't offer it if its gonna hurt the performance. It's possible the next update will fix all this but it's unfortunate we need to wait a few months until then. It's actually unacceptable but like imbeciles we'll again buy another iPod or iPhone cause actually would you rather have a malware filled android?  Not me.

    Agree, I'd even pay for an update that would actually enhance my device and give it new and better features.

    Many users will wait before updating to major updates and see other consumer reactions. I did this with my iPad 2, which is still running iOS5.


    And tommyvercetti is absolutely right. No matter what, I'm glad it's not a buggy open source software Android, which often gives you preloaded apps that can't be deleted and bug you to buy subscriptions.


    Anyway, I'm sure Apple will address the issues with previous generation devices soon. But still don't expect complete fixes to where it's super smooth, because again, the 4G simply does not have the processor for it.


    And to answer your question why Apple released it for iPod/Phone 4, it's because many users still wanted the update and would have been upset if their devices had not been included. But Apple doesn't force you to update, it just gives you the option.

    Actually, iOS 6 made my iPod 4th G run smoother. Less slowing and quicker scrolling. Sometimes I'm not sure if its my 4S or iPod. Definitely wasn't as smooth the day I bought it two years ago. Only complain like I said a million times before is the apps closing in the background due to low memory. If they fix that, then I'm sold.

    Was being real. Not negative or positive

    Not sure but aren't there paying anti-virus/anti-malware pass or whatever they're called for those devices?  Last thing I'd need is more monthly charges. You know?

    Well performance does seem better after turning off location services, notifications, diagnostics and restrictions as recommended by Apple technical support. For instance safari scrolls much smoother without getting stuck so often.  However it's too early to really tell and even though Apple technical support praised iOS 6 as having over 200 new features a lot don't apply to the iPod touch 4G and by having to turn everything off I feel as if I'm left with a less capable iPod.


    But the real reason to post again is I get inconsistent response using the BoseQiuet Comfort headphones remote. For instance I could start playback of the music app and control the volume but I could not pause, skip previous/next or fast forward/rewind. Never had a problem with iOS 5.


    It is so difficult to keep track of all this stuff because it seems like every which way I turn some new problem keeps popping up.

  • Tommyvercetti Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I've got everything turned on, location services for only a few apps that I need on and a lot of notifications are turned on as well. Perfirmance is no doubt smoother and quicker for just about any app I use. It wasn't this good the day I bought it a couple years ago. However, there is a definite RAM issue. Apps always close on the background to save RAM space. Wasn't that way prior to ios 6.


    Other issues that alot complain about regarding the iPod touch 4th G doesn't seem to affect my device. I have restored it to new after the update so maybe anybody with any issues can try that.

    Here's another downgrade graciously provided by Apple's ios 6. In the music app you can no longer swipe to delete music when iTunes match is turned on. Also, you can not tell which songs are on the ipod and which songs are in the cloud. You know, they just added these features in ios 5 and they worked great. Swipe to delete was not affected by itunes match and music either showed a cloud if the whole album was not on ipod or text was greyed out if it was mixed. For example you were viewing an album in which half the songs were not on the ipod.


    Seroiusly what happened. Add new features that work great and the next update ruin all the good work you did. You could have a billion new features but it's pointless if things are not thought out well and break good things in the process.


    I could go on such as Maps offline no longer show direction, etc....

    Are you on 6.0.1 or 6.0.0?


    Maybe that's the difference and I should update to 6.0.1 as I'm currently using 6.0.0.


    As far as a clean install this ipod had been set up 3 times. Once using wifi which stated success but nothing worked. Apple had me do a clean install via itunes and recovery mode. Apple store had done the same for me.
