    We've all heard about probs with iOS 6, so I figure it'd be useful to have a thread dedicated to sharing tips on how to get the most out of it, especially for users who've upgraded and can't downgrade, or users who are hesitant to upgrade.

    I'll paste some links to get things started, and maybe others can add tips, links and positive discoveries specific to iOS 6:

    Two other things I've noticed.

    You can now share your calendars with other iCloud users directly from the iPad. You used to have to go to icloud.com on a computer to do this.

    The changes to how Open In.. works now lets it list more than 10 apps. You can have several swipe-able screens of nine apps/actions each. At least I'm pretty sure more than 10 apps will show. More than ten items will, but I don't have 10 apps for anything to test my theory. ;)
