    Also, as far as it being outdated, I was perfectly happy before and it's only a 1 1/2 year old.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.

    I have to disagree with you there. Android is not at all a "malware filled" platform. True it is open-source making it a little more vulnerable, you just have to know what you are doing.

    Now I don't want to break out an Apple vs. Android argument here especially because that is not what this thread is intended for.

    But I will say this: the reason Apple devices are thought to be void of any viruses or malware, is because it is so restrictive of what you can or can't do with them. For many that is enough, but for many others, it simply does not meet their needs. Which is where Android is perfect because it is extremely customizable and can better fit one's needs. It is not nearly as dangerous or perilous as many people say, but you must always be careful, just as you would with anything. Apple would be for the people who don't want to mess with that stuff or who just want a simple device for doing everyday common things and that is as intuitive as it can possibly be.

     

    I am not saying that one is better than the other, they are both different, so naturally some people like the one while others like the other, that is just a natural occurrence that can not be denied or fought out of existence.

    We just have to find the one that suits us best and go with it.

    As for myself, I would be very content to have an Android device and an Apple device. They are not the same thing, so let's have a little of each.

     

    Sincerely,

    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? 

  • 39. Re: Has iOS 6.0.1 fixed the previous bugs? Requesting information.
    Lt. Leviathan Level 2 Level 2 (450 points)

    The Android platform does have antivirus applications like Norton, AVG, and Avast!. And just like on PC's you can use trial versions or free versions, but there are options to subscribe for monthly bills for more features too. But you don't even need anti-virus apps if you know what your doing and being careful, although it is recommended that you do have some sort of anti-vrius protection.

     

    This is getting off topic and I would prefer that this thread stay optimized for it's intended purpose, and remain easy for anyone looking for what the title describes to find what they need as well as for my reference.

    Thank you everyone for reporting your experiences regarding iOS 6 to this post.

     

    From everything I have gathered, I have come to this conclusion:

    Apple's Mobile Operating System (iOS) is unpredictably unstable. With every update you can expect something to get worse. For some people, it does get worse, for others, nothing changes, or it may even get better. It's a risk to update at all.

    But here is my encounter with iOS 6:

    I have an iPod Touch 4th Generation, it was running iOS 5 and everything ran as smoothly as it was meant to. When the new iOS 6 became available, I went ahead and updated. I very quickly found out that, among it's nice new features, it had bugs. I hade a mild situation compared to many other people. I waited for the next update, but when it did come out, it didn't seem to change much. For some people it has made things better while for others it has made things worse. So you never know what you can get. For me, there are little issues that I find that are most annoying. These things used to work fine, but I can expect anything and everything to go weird on me. And it is so frustrating and annoying when I do run into them.

    I do not recommend updating again until things clear up, if they ever do.

    If you are still on iOS 5, I highly recommend that you stick with that. You don't know what you've got until you lose it. iOS 5 was just fine, at least for me anyway.

     

    I hope that Apple can resolve these issues soon.

     

    I also think that Apple should accept and make easy restoring to a previous version. It makes me very uneasy knowing that there is no going back if things don't work out, and even more so when I need to go back but I can't.

     

    Analysis:

    If you have iOS 5 on an iPod Touch 4th Generation, I recommend that you do NOT update.

    If you have iOS 6 on an iPod Touch 4th Generation, I do NOT recommend updating again until things clear up, unless you are already experiencing to many problems and are willing to risk it.

     

    Again, Thank You for posting your experiences. If anything new develops I would appreciate it if you kept us up to date, especially with new updates.

     

    Thank you,

    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.

  • 42. Re: Has iOS 6.0.1 fixed the previous bugs? Requesting information.
    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.
