Like a complete moron, I upgraded my iPad to iOS 6.1 without reading about potential problems. Like LOTS of people are complaining about, iOS 6.1 on my iPad 4th gen is eating my battery life for breakfast. I'm sure Apple did this on purpose and here is how it will play out:
) Apple knows iOS 6.1 can be jailbroken from reading forums and tweets before it's released but they don't know how the hackers are going to do it. So they let their vulnerable iOS 6.1 out the door with a special little "coding error" in the form of horrible battery drain.
) Lots of people upgrade their iDevices to iOS 6.1
) JB for iOS 6.1 is released to the general public
) Apple announces that they discovered the battery drain problem and will soon release iOS 6.1.1 to address it
) Current iOS 6.1 JB is rendered useless with 6.1.1. If people want their normal battery life back, they have to upgrade. (Not a concern to people who don't JB as they'll gladly upgrade to iOS 6.1.1)........ Jailbreaking community can suck it......regard, Apple Devs.
I say the hackers should hold off because Apple will have to release a patch to correct the problem. We've waited this long, we can wait a little more. Man, I'm so pissed I upgraded last night before doing some research.
