Google and Microsoft should take core OS updates out of the hands of carriers and OEMs. Their stuff can sit on top, but the core features of the OS should be patched using an update system that bypasses the carriers and OEMs. IMO.

 

That said, Apple has a level playing field and don't have to worry about breaking stuff in an "unintended consequences" kind of way.

 

Well thats it, imagine MS/G pushing an update and it causing serious bugs on a specific device.. i guess they don't want that burden but it must be frustrating to see bugs get fixed then wait months for an update from the vendor, thats enough to keep me off those systems really.

I honestly believe that once MS completes the purchase of Nokia they will do this.

Good on them for getting the update out so fast, but wasn't this reported repeatedly during the beta? I'm still not sure why this had to be released before it was fixed.

 

That is probably because no one tested that part which Apple didn't know... so Apple was notified about it and got it fixed so they let the users know about the update due the security reasons.

No, I mean I think I recall reading here it was reported repeatedly as a bug during beta. If not here, I'm sure I read somewhere that someone had reported this issue already and it was ignored during the beta.

This won't happen in the US until the devices have enough leverage with carriers.

I didn't hear about the exploit until after the release...

Apple seems notorious for not reading bug reports. I filed several during iOS 7's beta run and not a single one has been looked at or responded to. Hell, I have some open bug reports dating back to Lion that are still empty.

 

In fact, I have exactly two bug reports that were noted, by being closed immediately with "duplicate feedback." If they do look at bug reports, you think they'd at least note it somewhere.
