    And it cant come soon enough. In what may be supreme understatement it talks about eight updates and patches "in the last two months which is more than usual over that time"

    Gee you think???

    I know one government IT director customer whose job has consisted of nothing but verifying and deploying the various updates to their phones and iPads for the last two months. I ask why he didn't just freeze them until it stabilized and he pointed out Apples habit of folding security updates and feature updates together makes it hard to hold off. Not to mention they will kill the availability of previous versions of IOS rapidly as well.

    The only reason they haven't switched to Android is that with the possible exception of Samsung and it's Knox software, Android is still a major security minefield. Link from MacRumors below.
