    Welcome to all Japan based users who are joining forces with us.


    We can "force" Apple to allow us to get iOS 5 if we keep this pressure here and in every media we can reach to.


    Let's see how Apple responds when it is head news that the new wish of its user and ex-loyal customers now is "downgrading". What a PR!!!

    You consider a text amendment and a meaningless letter as 'victories"? Ha ha! You're easily pleased.


    And even more ridiculously you're claiming responsibility for these so-called "victories"? You're delusional!


    Your claimed "victories" have fixed absolutely NOTHING for the millions of iOS 6 users with maps problems. Congratulations! Have a gold star. I look forward to your next claim of victory.

    You are pathetic..


    Rain starts with a single drop...Fire starts from a spark...


    That is life...son... watch and learn..

  • Julian Wright Level 7 (34,860 points)

    No, patting yourself on the back smugly claiming responsibility for meaningless victories - now THAT is pathetic...


    Come back congratulating yourself when you have actually achieved something that helps the people with maps problems. Then you may gain a smidgen of credibility...

    You big meanie!


    The apology came from the CEO.

    Hahahahahaha!!! This has surely got to be deliberate trolling.


    If not, you may want to brush up on your Googling skills before referring to somebody else's IQ:

    Actually I did but he used it as the"noun" not the adjective..which I didn't find in the proper dictionary so thought it was meant for the slang meaning which I copied from the urban dictionary.

  • ed2020 Level 1 (50 points)

    Smugly is an adverb, not an adjective, and that is how he used it. In the way you thought he meant it then it would have been an adjective (describing something as ugly), not a noun... So either way he wasn't calling you names since in neither context is 'smugly' a noun.

    None of your business

    Ex-Apple Fan, I totally agree with you about your comments about the media. I have posted on a parallel forum about this very point and they've heavily edited what I've written. It's now difficult to speak openly because they're censoring us. Pathetic really when you consider that they only have to open 5.1.1 on a temporary basis for their existing customer - the right thing to do and great publicity.

  • Penwith Level 1 (0 points)

    It's such a shame that a company who values it's reputation and image so much (and I do mean image - take a look at the swanky slick Apple Stores) are going to get such a slating in the media. The very public that they target will soon read and see bad publicity and the squeaky clean and polished image (which has cost so many millions) will be tarnished for a long long time. Read what I'm saying people.


    To the Apple moderator - Go ahead and edit this post if you like (as you have before on a parallel post). It will only make me even more determined to take public action - and believe me I will. Big time. I'm actually hoping you do edit this because its really going to drive me forward. In the immortal words of Mr. Eastwood; "Go ahead, make my day".

    I found this forum when wondering if I could downgrade back to OS 5.1.1.


    No solution yet.


    I like Apple products. But I also think that Apple Maps is a DISASTER. ( See hyperbole , figure of speech )


    It is really sad to see people arguing each other relentlessly.


    Let's employ empathy when communicating to another.

    Dear Tim Cook,


    I am a customer who has been loyal to Apple for the past 5 years during which I have bought tens of Apple devices for myself, friends, and relatives. We live in a country where we don't get Apple releases on their launch day but I have ways to get them from US or UK in the interim.


    We were promised the world if we upgrade our devices to iOS 6 and specially to get the most beautiful and powerful mapping service ever. I upgraded and since I live in Dubai Apple Maps didn't give me anything more than a pocket size digitized map that is far inferior than the local paper map. Apple map in Dubai hasn't even limited functionality that Apple Maps has in the US. I tried to use many alternatives but none of them brought back the functionality I used to have before this upgrade.


    I tried to find solutions and went to the official Apple Support Community forums on the web to find individuals carrying levels and points who were trying to silence every criticism, complaint, or negative experience in the most unprofessional style addressing expressions to Apple customers in the form of  "you are moaning", "stop whining", "go to other suppliers", "who forced you to upgrade", "we don't want you here..go away" "you were sent by Google to troll",..etc. The impression left on everyone who came to those threads for help or discussion that these individuals are an organized gang of badly trained watchdogs whose only task is to make fun and be sarcastic of genuine Apple customers who dare to mention that as we are Apple customers who pay our money to Apple, we deserve a better treatment and we want the functionality we have paid for. They keep directing us to a feedback page on Apple site for iPhone that doesn't even enlist the iOS versions while it does mention all those for Windows and Mac OS!!


    Millions of existing Apple customers including me own devices (other than iPhone 5) have upgraded to iOS 6 but we didn't like it as our devices became less functional. All that we want is to have the choice to get back iOS 5 until the time when iOS 6 gives what it promised. iTunes doesn't allow us to make this "downgrade" for reasons that none of us is able to understand. Why our devices have become captives to iOS 6? iOS 5 is still supported and millions of those customers who were more prudent than us and didn't upgrade to iOS 6 are still happy with their devices running iOS 5. Why can't we?


    Finally, I would like to ask you if you still think that a company which makes "downgrading" an impossible wish for its most loyal customers could continue to be worth working for, investing in, or buying from?

    I have 3 service provider contracts in 3 different continents for a total of 12 iPhones in a family of 4.  I was impressed, happy and awed by what our iPhones were capable of UP UNTIL IOS 6.


    I have seen almost a thousand threads of complaints with the new software upgrade and STILL no word from Apple.  Do you think they actually READ the support communities and just sit and laugh?


    I either want to be able to downgrade back to 5.1.1 or after almost 3 weeks of struggle, someone at Apple should come up with a 6.1 upgrade to respond to their customers needs as any company worth their word should do.  Its simply called CUSTOMER SERVICE.  Being held hostage to what APPLE wants is painful.
