    ok why did apple do this

    firmwares:

    1.1.1 - 1.1.2 - 1.1.3 - 1.1.4 - 1.1.5 - 1.2.0

    they skipped

    1.1.6 - 1.1.7 - 1.1.8 - 1.1.9

    Thats because the people that use 1.1.5 and refuse to update to 2.0 can have security updates with 1.1.6 - 1.1.7 - 1.1.8 - 1.1.9 as apple goes along.

    Its because they can like the posts above its for people who dont want to pay to update but what i think is apple should release a crapp store with all the crappy apps that will eventually make people update to get better ones
