    It should say "Pressing the Home Button from any Springboard Page takes you back to the first one."

    The home button update is nice though so simple, but it does save you flicking past like 3-8 pages or w/e ^-^.

    Add that there is "No late responses when buying/downloading something from the App Store."

    Try it out, at least for me it's different. Whenever I downloaded something and I touched the PURCHASE or DOWNLOAD, it would take a second or two until it actually registered the touch. It seems instant now.
