For those that like physical keyboards (this one is for the iPhone 4, have to search around for a 5 one or wait for one to be made)

So she got her new phone last night. Now you need the new iTunes 10.7. Which you can only get with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or above. Her Mac Book from 2008 has OS X 10.5 Leopard on it. So a computer thats 4 years old is not compatible with this phone without a software update.

Apple didn't become the richest company in the world by being stupid. Off to the Apple store to buy a new OS upgrade.

When did she preorder her phone? In your post previous to this you hadn't preordered it yet lol. I ordered mine on Sept 17th and it still isn't in yet. Very annoying.

My iMac is up to date with the latest build of mountain lion. I may try to get an iPhone 5 at the AT&T store this weekend.

I preordered the day it went on sale at 6 AM from Apple. I should have preordered from ATT and I would have got it on the 21st probably.

In my limited use with my fiancees there arent many improvements except her whining she doesnt have a youtube app. Well no **** google and apple hate each other now. Also its a huge pain in the @$$ to charge it somewhere other than home. Usually you can just say "who's got an iphone cord" and charge it up, or take one in the car (we have usb in the truck that allows charging) and can't do that without dragging around the one wire. And a new wire is $20, adapters even more. Not to mention my dilemma with OS X 10.5.8 being outdated, luckily a coworker used to be a Genius at the Apple store and got me a free copy of OS X 10.6.8

Overall it's a nice phone but honestly I dont see anything OMG earth shattering with it.

Yes I know this. but a non tech savvy person such as my fiancee was furious that she could not watch youtube videos and did not know about the app.

Did you update OS X yourself? I've never done that and I'm nervous that I'm going to lose everything. And no, I don't have Time Capsule or an external HD.

Agreed on pretty much everything, even the fiance having it part. I know I was pissed when I updated my OS and it deleted my Youtube app. I mean all I had to do was get it back through the app store but how super annoying that company grudges affect customers like that.

I didn't try yet, just got the disc today. It seems pretty straightforward, what I'm worried is I have the HDD partitioned with bootcamp to run XP and I believe 10.6.8 got rid of boot camp so I might run in to issues with that. not a HUGE deal because she only had bootcamp to run a specific accounting program for a class her junior year. But still will probably end up being harder than it should be.

Yup. and I just dont get the lack of outrage over the new connector. Its 110% a money grab. There's nothing wrong with the old 32-pin connector. There's also nothing wrong with a micro-USB which is more and more becoming the standard for cell phones.

Today, we have been texting all day. Her battery is about to die because she uses the phone heavily, and she can't charge it because we only have 1 wire that is compatible with it. Its more annoying than anything, but she's an Apple fanatic. I was, but I'm starting to see through their gimmicky BS when it comes to screwing their customers out of more coin.

EDIT I should add, the Panorama photo feature is pretty slick. Im not sure if that is already available on other platforms though. Also, it doesn't work out well when drunk :pop:

of course its 110% money grab. good for them. they have consumers wrapped around their finger and can do this stuff and no one stops buying (ex: mac buying a new OS to go with a freaking phone......)

Yeah like I said its more of an inconvenience than anything. And that's a little thing you don't even think to check. She knew going in to the purchase the new connector was going to be a pain. It's Apple's M.O. to disontinue support on an OS super quickly and churn out another one "for only $20". Luckily I got the OS upgrade for free so the only thing we're out extra was $20 just so she could have her contacts and phone profile loaded right away via iCloud (which I find out later you get 5 free GB.... which wasn't explicitly outlined. It was marketed as buy 10 get 5 free). it was easier to pay $20 than to hear her whine :D

The charger thing is really one issue that is a huge F-you to the customer base. Very annoying, I don't think Steve Jobs would have wanted it that way nor do I think he would've let the Iphone 5 come out as is. (I didin't know Jobs and have nothing besides my perception that he was a quality nut to back that up) That commercial trying to make it sound like they made some amazing break through with the bigger screen is one of the most annoying things I've seen in a long time.

edit: I know since my update the 4S has the panorama feature.

Yup. I didn't even consider that it wouldn't be in stock. The sales rep literally laughed at me when I asked her if they had any.

Also, I'm surprised people are upset in this thread over the lightning cord. Apple has literally had the same connector for 10 years. For every single one of its mobile products. That's insane. Most companies change up their connectors with every other model. It's certainly outdated and showing it's age. I haven't had a chance yet to test the lightning connector, but hopefully it'll be much faster.

And the whole "If Steve was still there" argument is annoying. Who knows what Apple and the iPhone 5 would be like if Steve were still alive. I do know one thing, Steve was all about innovation. And sticking with the same old cord for 10+ years isn't really innovating.
