    Hi,
    I have just updated to IOS 6 and am having nothing but problems. The update went fine, rebooted my iPad 3 and then the problems started. When I restart the iPad each time I am presented with the grey IOS 6 screen. I slide to login and I am then taken to a Wi-Fi page showing my Wi-Fi options. I tap the blue highlighted box 'Next' and am then presented with a pop up box to continue with or without Wi-Fi. I request to use Wi-Fi only for the pop up to keep appearing. I cannot proceed unless I tap 'Continue without Wi-Fi. Also there is no Siri in my general Settings, amongst a whole host of other issues. I am beginning to wish I had never upgraded. Certainly not a smooth road so far. I would like to revert to the older OS, at least that worked without having to jump through hoops each time I boot up. Please help somebody. Thanks.

    Please help someone

    Hi again,

    Still jumping through hoops but Siri has mysteriously appeared where it should be in General settings. Can't find the other new features though, flyover etc.

    I think you may need to do a fresh install of iOS6 on your iPad, seen the amount of issues you have.

    If you already had wifi set up just click continue to get to the next menu. You don't need to re-enter any info.

    Mine is working just fine.

    I have an iPad third-generation, And I had absolutely no problems at all with my upgrade. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. It did ask me to reenter my password however.

    The update went smoothly here. But jeez, Maps is turbo-sucky. In addition to being slow, low-res, and feature-poor, it's buggy. Sometimes, seemingly at random, it's impossible to delete a pin or its listing in Recents. Also, Home wanders around a bit.

    Maybe it's just me, but the four-finger gestures seem difficult to accomplish. They often simply fail, but sometimes are interpreted as Zoom commands. Guess I'ii have to disable three-finger-tap.

    Oh, one more thing(tm)...I had some trouble editing this post in the IPF app, and had to kill it and start over. When I tried to place the cursor to insert text, it jumped to the beginning of the post and wouldn't budge. Typing resulting in new text ON TOP OF the existing text! Amusing, but not very productive.

    Maps is indeed terrible. No features and no accuracy at this point. Hope this gets better.

    When you say slow and and low rez, i must t say that i have disagree. Maybe it looks slightly different than google maps , but I would certainly not call it low res. i find maps to be responsive to the touch. I was able to remove pins from recent without a problem by hitting the clear button in the upper left hand corner of the recent dialog box. As far as the 4 finger swipe, i find that it works much better with a 5 finger motion straight up. As far as editing this post through the app, i had the same problem as you state the first time, but during this post, i have been able to move and place the cursor wherever i want. Maps nor ios 6 is perfect. I think it needs some improvements and added features which i suspect will come in time through updates.

    Good luck...

    Urgh. Have stupidly just installed. The intermittent and oft misinterpreted gestures are the killer for me. Had already decided next tablet would not be apple because of proprietarial restrictiveness, but if this is how handle their alpha testing, I'll stick with Microsoft - at least they do some testing first.
