    I installed on my MK1 iPad purley because it said battery life had been improved. To be honest, I've not noticed much difference. I've had Safari crash out a few times but no more than the original iOS5 upgrade brought about.

    It'd be nice if there was a way of removing all the crap for the iPad 2 that can't be used on the 1 to make it a bit more streamlined. The battery life thing sucks arse though. How I remember the days of it lasting nearly a week rather than a handful of hours.

    Purchased an IPAD 2 last week. Received the IOS upgrade on Friday. Since then I can only connect to the Itunes store one out of three attempts. Customer experience to date with this product suggests that my relationship with Apple is at an end.

    In case you did not know, the biggest drain on the battery is the screen brightness. If you have it on full even a brand new iPad won't get anywhere near the advertised 9-10 hours. When indoors 1/3 screen brightness looks pretty good, and will almost double your battery ife.

    I am using Verizon mifi 4G I have tried many times during day and evening to update and all I get is "An error occured while checking for software update". I am using ipad to update. Won't have access to my computer until I get home in a few weeks. I have updated before even the 5.0 update using the mifi with no problems. Any suggestions?
