Show Notes

Guest Glenn Fleishman penned a piece over at TidBits about iOS 6 gobbling up cellular data. Though Apple issued a carrier update for the Verizon iPhone 5 earlier this month, some people are seeing the issue persist, even on other iPhone models and different carriers.

Josh Centers posted a video of the purported data consumption bug in action.

Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a public apology about iOS 6's Maps in late September; since then, improvements have already begun to appear. And, of course, you can easily report issues you find to help Apple make Maps better.

Lex Friedman has documented well his affection for Siri.
