Apple has released a knowledge base article that says iOS 6's Do Not Disturb scheduling feature, which for some reason decided to take the New Year off, will start working again on January 7. Apple also recommend that, until then, anyone experiencing the issue turn Do Not Disturb on and off manually.
Proving once again that even the latest, greatest iOS time-based feature can fail in the face of simple change, tons of reports are flying around the internet that Do Not Disturb -- the feature that lets you mute Notification Center alerts during specified, usually nighttime, periods -- stopped working at some point between 2012 and 2013. Manually flipping Do Not Disturb from off to on...
The iPhone 5 appears to be exhibiting odd touch behavior when it comes to consistent detection of multiple swipe events over time. On an iPhone 4S, you can begin rapidly swiping back and forth and iOS will easily keep pace, scrolling the view to match your mad swiping, even as you start angling towards the diagonal.

What makes this sudden swelling especially curious is the timing -- it's happening just as the free 25GB accounts of previously paid MobileMe users were set to expire.
Apple has update the terms and conditions of iTunes and the App Store tonight, and it seems to have caused a recursive bug for some users -- the TOC pops up again and again, in an infinite loop, and you just can't get past it.
So iOS 6 is here -- and you really have to read our epic iOS 6 review! -- and that means, just like any brand new release, bugs are here with it. Some of you can't install, some can't get to the App Store, some can't get Passbook working, some are having Wi-Fi issues, some aren't able to sync media, music, photos, tones, or more, and the list goes on and on. We're trouble shooting over...

Over 12 million unique device identifiers (UDID), and related, personally-identifiable information, for iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads have reportedly been hacked from an FBI laptop using a Java vulnerability. AntiSec has released 1 million of the UDIDs as proof of the hack. They've also released the following about the hack itself:
pod2g has just published a blog regarding an SMS vulnerability he's found in iOS that could allow someone to abuse the protocol for SMS in order to spoof or send fake text messages. The exploit has been an issue since the incarnation of iOS and is still present in iOS 6 beta 4. He's now urging Apple to fix it.
