Ipod Touch 3.0 update rant

18 replies
Found 11th Sep 2009
I have avoided this as i begrudge paying over £250 for me 16 gig 3g touch and dont really want to pay another £5.99 on top as i think updates should be free
Anyway I sync up my touch last night and it removed Twitter app, Facebook app and Ebay app as they will only work on 3.0 software grrrrr it's like they take it off you just so now you don't have a choice but to update to 3.0
Whats so great about this update anyway? Whays new
Should we start a petition for "All updates should be free"???

Many other companies would make it so that on the newest models can run the new software so i would count yourself lucky that apple only charge £6.99 for the upgrade.

I sent mine off to to apple to 'repair' although there was nothing wrong with it. i recieved it back with the 3.0 software for free :-D

"and it removed Twitter app, Facebook app and Ebay app"


Now that is just plain offensive. Removing software you have installed , nice company Apple eh!

No because it's free for the iphone muppet.



last time I checked (2 days ago) itunes informed me that my current FW (3.0) was up to date with no updates applicable.

So are you saying this is now incorrect and 3.1 is available for the ipod?

EliTom (muppet - not)

Just get off tpb
