    And if you read it they go on to say it is the most secure device on the market :thumb:

    I was just pointing it out for those that think Apple are secure...

    Not sure I can see much difference in the roadmaps but the 'satelite' maps are now useless!

    it seems to be for the phone and iPad

    I have the first version of the IPAD and it is not showing for that yet

    had it come through from Apple for the iPhone... but not for my MacBook Pro.. although did get a large section of IOS 6 for part of the photo area of the computer.

    Hi Bob I thought it was just IOS getting an upgrade. Your macbook is OS X, are they updating bits of that too?

    yes JIM

    I got a biggish up load yesterday.. 45 minutes for the IMovie side of the MacBook Pro... quoted IOS 6 ... think it was to do with face book etc., Do not use it, but the upload still came through.

    Noticed the one for the IPAD is for the 2n d / 3rd generation not the first. but covers all the IPHONES.

    Downloaded ios6 for my iPhone 3GS but didn't find a whole lot of difference unless I am missing something.

    Like Bob I have the original iPad and wonder if there is a great advantage to upgrading to the latest version or would it be sensible to wait a few months for the next version, rumoured to launch in March 2013.

    had my version 1 for 2 years November

    I have had my version 1 for two year in November.. been a great item... not sure I want anything extra to what i have now? I still use it every day despite having the MacBook Pro which is still fantastic... not regretted buying it. I still have the IPHON4 and have no desire to up grade yet... but I am watch to see what is coming out in the future.

    I am not going to get another iphone.

    Since I got the ipad I only use the iphone for calling people which is how it should be i guess.

    Just realised I now have "Siri" on my iPad which wasn't there before. It's a waste of time on my iPhone 4S but my daughter does have fun talking to "him" for hours on end.::bigsmile:

    The Samsung S4 is due to be launched in January, now that would be a step up in technology.:thumb: You will be able to carry spare batteries for it to. Could be useful when 4G arrives:thumb:

    A quote from the BBC News earlier re the inadequacies of the maps in the new iPhone.

    "Some towns appear to be missing, such as Stratford-upon-Avon and Solihull." and

    "A search for Manchester United Football Club directs users to Sale United Football Club, a community team for ages five and above."

    So perhaps JJ will rush out and buy one now...........:roflmto:

    Apparently Dublin has an extra airport on these maps. The maps are causing much hilarity on the android forums. For goodness sake dont use them for navigating or you may disappear for good:roflmto:
