Apple have today announced that their new iOS 6 system download status bar bears over 40% less relevance to the actual download than any other download status bar in history.
Speaking at the official launch of iOS 6, an Apple spokesman announced that they had been working on this breakthrough for several years and that they were "very pleased" with the results.
"I think we really nailed it this time", he said. "I mean, the sheer jaw-dropping irrelevance of this status bar really needs to be seen to be believed."
Apple enthusiasts were quick to air their praise for the new download status bar. "Other companies have tried things like weirdly changing download times from 30 seconds to 2 hours halfway through the download", said Chuck Zjobjeck, a long time Apple user, "but this has all that and more. Like, that new thing they've done, where it takes about an hour and a half for the very, very last, tiny bit to get coloured in - that's just a stroke of genius."
Apple hope that the use of iOS 6 will help boost sales of the iPhone 5, largely due to current iPhone 4 users smashing their phones in frustration while attempting to download iOS 6.
