Go Get iOS 6.1 Right Now

iOS 6.1 is out now and ready for your downloading pleasure. It's a relatively minor update, including LTE support for more carriers, Fandango ticket purchasing through Siri in the U.S., and the ability for iTunes Match subscribers to download individual songs from iCloud. Apple is also adding improved iOS 6.1 APIs for developers, making it easier to integrate the Apple Maps database into other apps, if you want to do that for some reason. And if you've got an Apple TV, you just got new Bluetooth keyboard capability.

DISCUSSION

Dear Apple, anything with a ".1" suffix is insufficiently innovative. Even Apple's latest commercials are too incremental for what we all expect of Apple. Like background noise reduction, reshaped headphones, or a Do Not Disturb feature. Really?!

They're losing their differentiation. Rapidly.
