I'm still investigating ways to pick up an iPhone 5 at less than "full price" (and possibly even less than upgrade price, by trading in my iPhone 4S), but I must say I'm surprised at how disappointed some people are by both iOS 6 and the iPhone 5.
Both are exactly what Apple does best: incrementally improve a product.
iPhone 5 is hands down a better phone than the iPhone 4 that many people will be replacing, and iOS 6 is a great OS that adds 50+ new features (many small), but which doesn't even belong in the same discussion as iOS 4 which is NOT that old.
Incrementally updating hardware and software gets us an iPhone 5 with iOS 6. Just compare it to any previous combination of release hardware/software and the changes are stunning. Heck, compare it to the original iPhone which is really not that old and the original iPhone will seem about as useful as a rock, yet when it came out, it was awesome.
P.S. iOS 6 came out for my 4S just in time for me to take lots of panoramic photos in Scotland. Woo!

Unlike this author/, I don't think Apple needs to fix anything. The ringer switch and DND work beautifully.
The one thing that confused me at first was that the DND setting actually switches from "ON" to "OFF" when it's not on. I thought my settings were being changed, but what the software is actually doing is changing the switch to "ON" when it's 11:36pm and setting it to "OFF" at 6:54am.
That confused me at first, but I "get it" now. I still think it's somewhat confusing, but I understand it now. I do wonder, though, if you set it to "ON" manually at 11pm, will it still turn "OFF" at 6:54am? Probably.
