Re: IOS 6.1 just went live

I love the game they play...let's change or move things and let the users try to figure out on their own what we changed....like it would kill them if they included a note as to what's different

That is not a complete list. Apple never releases the complete list.

Exactly!

You know why? Because it would probably look pretty crappy from a PR perspective if they provided a changelog with 200 miscellaneous bugfixes and changes. Would taint their utopian image...

They do. It's the first screen when accepting the update on either iOS itself or in iTunes. Also listed at the link posted earlier.

Apple doesn't break down every single bug fix, because most people wouldn't understand or care about them. If you're really interested, you can start here:

My beef goes back to when they changed the double click functionality and as well as the lock screen button on the iPad without clear (for the average user) notification. IMHO, 90% of the 60 million iPhone users aren't going to do web research on updates. There's no reason why they can't have a splash screen that describes important changes on first boot after an update (with a few options "never show me, ignore, show me later, etc.").
Most users don't care about the majority of the fixes, but there are some items that should be communicated in a way that the majority will see it...(again...IMHO)

The splash screen you speak of is exactly what I said. Before you accept the update, the official change list is displayed either on the device when doing OTA updates or as an iTunes pop-up when doing a restore.

I don't remember all the way back to 4.2/4.3 when the behavior you mention was changed to know if it was included in the notes, but it seems like they included more or less everything important for the 5.x and so far for the 6.x releases.
