The MINOS experiment finished data collection in April this year. We have made precision measurements of the oscillation parameters using both neutrino (10.7e20pot) and anti-neutrino (3.3e20pot) enhanced beams and with atmospheric neutrinos (37.9 kt.y). The atmospheric neutrino sample can also be separated into neutrino and antineutrino samples with the magnetic field in the far detector. Updated results of measurements in the 23-mixing sector and the sub-dominant 13-mixing sector will be presented including combined fits from beam and atmospheric data to the separate neutrino and antineutrino mixing parameters. The MINOS+ experiment (the MINOS detector in the ME NOVA beam) will commence running in April 2013.
