Apple Apple has released iOS 6.1 - it's not a huge release so you probably won't notice much. What is interesting, however, is that Apple has unveiled that after just five months, 300 million iOS devices have been updated to or run iOS 6 - about 60% of all iOS devices ever sold. Google can learn a lot from this, since we're 14 months down the line, and Ice Cream Sandwich is only on about 40% of Android devices. Like I said, trainwreck in slowmotion.

For those iOS users who want to free themselves.

Hopefully root means they will soon be able to SIM unlock. It's absurd to think that Apple + carriers can dictate what you can/can't do with a piece of hardware that you paid for.


Apple will willingly sell you an unlocked iPhone. If you buy a phone on a contract, you can get it unlocked once you have finished paying for it. And Apple (and your carrier) cannot refuse to unlock it then.
