    Curious what others do.
    I tend to wait on major releases(from 4.3 to 5 or from 5.1 to 6, etc) to see what other people think of them. How they work and how their device acts with the new OS. I usually wait about a month to upgrade.

    I update on the day.

    Apple do extensive beta testing of IOS over many months. I have had it installed on various devices since the release of beta 1. The final / GM is already out for developers. You won't find any significant bugs or instability in 6.0, so the logic of hanging back for a month really doesn't stack up in the Apple / IOS world. I cant recall a single situation since the iPad1 was released where a new major version of IOS was released with serious bugs in it. There was an issue with the iPad3 baseband when it was brand new LTE hardware, but I can't recall an issue with a new major release on existing hardware platforms.

    The choice is of course entirely yours, but I think you are disadvantaging yourself by waiting month to simply see how it goes... my 2c

    I wait mainly to see thru other people's eyes the changes. Like when safari went from mini screen shot listings to tab browsing. Or how iCloud worked. Etc. I do it mainly for comfort level and to be informed, I seriously doubt I am doing myself some sort of disservice by waiting a whole 30 days to get the latest OS. But thanks for your concern

    I generally wait a day, if only to let the servers get caught up with all the traffic. Generally, there is nothing to worry about unless you are jailbroken - that is where I hear about the most hiccups. Knock on wood, I have not had any issues updating any iOS device I have had since the original iPod touch. Been pretty flawless for me.

    I usually update by the 24-hour mark, unless I'm busy.

    I will probably do it on Friday next week. Usually I like to do it with the masses, but the day of release will be my a long day at work for me. So will have to wait a little bit.

    When I updated my iPhone to 5, I remember the battery draining much faster than normal until the next update. But I will probably give in to my impatience and update to 6 as soon as I can.

    I'm most likely going to wait until Thursday or Friday to wait for the network traffic to die down and also see what other people think of it. I'm tempted to do it the day of, but knowing that the server is going to be CRAZY and it will take forever, partly because of an unbearably slow WiFi network, it won't be a good idea, even though I'm SO excited to use Siri on my iPad 3!
    I'll probably start the download Thursday or Friday night and let it load overnight, as it will take a few hours on my slow connection and I don't have that kind of time to wait for downloads during the day.

    I'm looking forward to iOS 6, so I'll probably do both my phone and tablet on Thurdsay evening, which is the first available chance I'll get to do it because I live in Australia, and it won't be available until Thursday morning here anyway.
