Updated, no good changes, Apple is stable and fast but still boring. They need to implement ways to make programmers do things like JB makes possible.

SBSettings for example is my need to JailBreak. Sunday they will release the JB and ill be able to change settings with the SBSettings shortcuts.

Apple needs to inovate and gear up in the next iOS7

That's the thing.. they don't need to.

They're selling more iPhones and iPads with every release. Why change course? What they're doing is working.

I never had any issue with the 4S battery. I use my 4S profusely without charging it during the day, and the battery lasts me around 12 hours.

Good point, but what about market share? I could be wrong (i really don't know facts) but i'm sure they are losing it to, albeit cheaper, android devices?

Absolutely agreed. As much as people here on Neowin whine about iOS getting "stale", more people out there would get angry if things were changed. And I, as well, don't want to see them make major UI changes. It's fast, fluid, and stable as it is.
If people are bored, then buy a Windows or Android phone. That's the beauty of choice.
