Along with this iOS 6.1 update, Apple also updated Apple TV to 5.2.

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

it's a point release, pretty much just maintenance, wait for iOS7 for major features... i think at this still it WILL be different/better, it has to be.. the heat is on, if they do nothing about it, then shame on them..

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.

This wont always hold true tho. Apple will have to change, its just a matter of when.

I'm sure they will, but it will likely be subtle. There's no reason for them to start from scratch and go another route.
Even stock Android doesn't have huge changes from version to version.

I'm not sure why but the battery tends to drain quickly unless you restart the phone. Doubt it'll be fixed in 6.1 but one can always hope.

We shall see how things progress. To early to tell.

True, but the interface is really customizable even if you are not rooted. Can do a lot more with the look and feel. But like you said earlier, to each their own.

I am hoping an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x for the iPhone 4S is released soon.

I wish that I could help, but I am not experiencing that. My iPhone is functioning all the time, and I only charge it when I go to bed. I unplug it in the morning by 7.00, and charge it at 23.00-23.30. In-between, i play music and games, chat, iMessage, Facebook, YouTube, surf the Web, etc. When I plug my 4S for its charge, there is around 10% left.
