    Frankly, after reading these threads, I am VERY hesitant to upgrade.

    I am very pleased with my current iPad2. No problems.

    Why upgrade to 6.0?

    Agreed. A little 'wait-and-see' won't hurt any.

    Honestly, if I still had my 2, I wouldn't. No Passbook, no Siri, no YouTube app, no Google maps app? Not enough reasons to update yet so many reasons not too. Unless my 2 was crashing all the time on 5.1, I don't see a reason to update.

    My personal pref on updating is not to update a non current issue device as the new OS is usually optimized to get the most out of the latest & greatest, yet makes older devices more buggy. At least that has been my experience with iPods & iPhones. I don't see the iPad as being any different.

    Read thru the Wikipedia article on features and look at all the minor ones.

    I would have upgraded for the changes in Mail and iMessage alone.

    I've had no issues with the upgrade personally on my iPad 2.

    There are third party YouTube apps and Google maps can still be accessed via safari if you can't deal with Apple maps

    I agree. I don't use maps and google is coming out with a replacement app for you tube. The mail and message features are great and so is updating apps with no password entry! Woot!

    I have no regrets in upgrading. Love the new App Store look, the ability to upload photos directly to Facebook. The maps and Youtube we know will be improved or provided soon and you can still get them now through other means.
