Aaron's back with the Apple iPhone 5 Challenge!  In this day 3 video, Aaron discusses mail problems and overall stagnation when it comes to iOS 6.  iOS has been around in some form since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, and little has changed outside of minor cosmetic improvements and add-ons.  Without widgets and customization that Android offers, it seems a bit less productive as a whole.  This was acceptable and looked past when Apple's "it just works" premise was valid, but two things are in play now: (1) iOS 6 suffered from terrible keyboard lag at launch, tarnishing the OS and (2) the fluidity of Android has been on par with iOS since Ice Cream Sandwich.
