Oh well. Updated to 6.0.1 from 5.1.1. No problems so far. Do like the usage numbers now provided. Also noticed when turning on wifi, used to have to tap 'linksys', but now it does it for me. Since most of the other items updated don't interest me, everything else is about the same.
Reckon I'm glad I updated and probably won't be as hesitant to trust Apple in the future.
Thanks for your input.
