    Have you updated to it? How's it working on your iPad 2?
    (Sorry, title should read iOS.)

    Not really worth the trouble. Wait until 6.1 comes along and MAYBE the maps will be fixed.

    Interested to know what the trouble is with the update that you are referring to? Apple have put a lot of effort into iTunes and OTA updates over the years to make the processes trouble-free in the majority of cases. That's not to say folks don't run into trouble, but it is the exception rather than the rule... If you do have a problem MAYBE the members of the forum can help? ;)

    I upgraded yesterday and all has been well. I don't think the upgrades did much for me personally but I always take the updates and have never been worse off that before. Still chugging away with my now two generations old iPad 2. :)

    The upgrade has worked just fine for me. No issues at all.

    My 3G connection stopped working soon after the upgrade.

    I had to rewrite in the VPN name, then user name and password.
    Was it a co-incidence?
    Maybe, I don't know for sure.

    After waiting a bit, I updated to 6.0.1. Besides the lack of the google maps, I have yet to notice any difference (no benefit, no harm) for the things that I do on an iPad. Unless there is a specific feature you are looking for, or looking to keep, I see no reason to upgrade or not to upgrade.

    Oh well. Updated to 6.0.1 from 5.1.1. No problems so far. Do like the usage numbers now provided. Also noticed when turning on wifi, used to have to tap 'linksys', but now it does it for me. Since most of the other items updated don't interest me, everything else is about the same.

    Reckon I'm glad I updated and probably won't be as hesitant to trust Apple in the future.

    Thanks for your input.

    I hate it. If I could downgrade to 5.1.1 without getting nagging screens to upgrade to 6.0.1.

    Unless you actually go to the software update page in settings, all you're going to see is the red update button on the settings icon or a grey button in Settings>General>Software Update.

    I updated and trust me your not missing much it does look a bit improved (design wise) on the music player and has a few more features however if you don't mind the Maps app then sure you should upgrade.

    Upgrade both iPad and iPhone 3GS to 6.0.1 and battery life seems to have gone way downhill. I'm not a heavy phone user but I'm lucky if it lasts two days. iPad seems almost as bad.

    I regretted updating mine. While downloading my screen turned into shaky red screen. It went away but resurfaced and stayed. I brought it to the Apple store but was told they could not do anything but a trade in for $269. Up to now I am still very upset:mad:

    That sounds like a hardware prob unrelated to iOS.

    Yes, iOS 6.0(.1) is here. Let's skim the pros+cons once again.......
    Pros.
    -Siri for iPad 3+later, new iPod, iPhone, etc... Plus new features, improvements. Etc.
    -FaceTime over 3GS.
    -Clock app for iPad. Alarms, world clock, etc.
    -Facebook integration into the Apple iPhone iPod iPad iOS operating system UI.
    -iPhone panorama w/Camera.app
    -inserting photos in mail
    -more iCloud.
    -over 200 of these features.
    -etc...
    Con.
    The 'obvious' bunch:
    -no YouTube. Solution: download YouTube.app OR MY PREFERRED SOLUTION: m.youtube.com, mobile version o/ YouTube.
    -Crappy maps. Solution: erm, closest solutions. Maps.google.com, Waze, MotionX etc.
    Other cons.
    -App store + iTunes: some gripes about layout, especially search on App Store. Some experience white screen when searching due to laginess, etc.
    -Your con of choice here, etc.
    -etc...

    Summary, is it worth it?
    Read through the pros plus cons. It depends on how you use iOS device...
    Case closed! All iOS 6 questions "pros+cons." solved.
