    Well, I held off on the 6.0 update, so will now go ahead and give this release a try! :)

    Well I guess that will be one of the first things I will have to do when my iPad 4 comes tomorrow. I also read this afternoon that 6.1 has been released to developers.

    Well, to quote myself above, I assumed that my update would be to iOS 6.0.1, but I was first taken to iOS 6.0 and then told that a 'new' update was available, i.e. 6.0.1 - so my delay seemed to be useless? Not sure what others have experienced?

    BUT, I am now @ iOS 6.0.1 and my first checks seem to be OK - successful? Hopefully? So far what I've tested works fine! Dave

    Thanks for the notice. I'm doing the update one of three: two iPad2's and one new iPad. So far, no problem with the first iPad2. Interesting moving icon. The settings app with the wheel and two sprockets rotate while downloading the app. Never noticed that before. It took less than four minutes to upgrade. It will be interesting how this little upgrade helps the iPad function.

    I think most of the fixes were for the new iPhone5. The update apparently requires an existing 6.0.0 installation.

    Updated here too..

    I agree with regards to 99% of the bug fixes & updates only really apply to the iPhone 5 - but the security updates are always nice to have :)

    Out of interest, I followed an age old pattern for me with any "computing" device - specifically I did a reset before getting the update. I always did a full power cycle on PCs prior to any update, do a "cold boot" or cache clear on Android devices & thought "why not" on an Apple device too - so I did the power/home screen button reset, then did the update. :)

    It fixed some of the problems that were in iOS 6.0. If you have 6.0 there is no reason not to get this update. It does add features. It is basically a bug fix.

    Yeah, I noticed the working gears too. Cool! That means something special....I'm telling ya!

    On a funny note, maybe Samsung can use that in one of their ads where they poke fun at apple. They could show the Samsung galaxy doing something truly useful and then show the apple dorks clamoring about how the gear rotation animation makes the updates go faster or something. LOL! :)
