    iOS 6 seems fine. Is there a user guide including it for iPad2?

    Become an iOS developer, download the appropriate package (google for "ios 5 direct download links") and use XCode's Organizer to downgrade to iOS 5.
    (That's the only way I know ...)

    That's a shame, I want Google maps back but, worse, my Home button doesn't always react. Sometimes I have to press it 3 or 4 times. It always worked every time before. Lets hope w get an update to the update soon!!!!

    There is a workaround for the dodgy home button.

    Go to Settings/General/Accessibility/Assistive Touch. Turn it on and you will get a software home button on your screen. You can move it around if it gets in the way.

    Thanks, it might help although it has a mind of its own and won't go just where I want it.

    I've sorted Google Maps by going into it inSafari then adding to Home Screen. I've done the same with uTube.

    I've upgraded a 4s and an iPad 3. Both of them went quickly and painlessly. 15 minutes after I tapped the Upgrade button my iPad was running on 6. The iPhone was almost as quick.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I've heard the the iPhone YouTube app works on the iPad....so that may be your best bet until the iPad YouTube app is released.
