Looks like a lot of us are waiting to see a few reviews before jumping into the new update.
The reviews are out and very positive. Most of those waiting are cautious about any change, or not wanting to deal with the high traffic problems.
And some of us are holding out to preserve our jailbreak!
Grrrrr.......that's what I shudda' done.
I loaded iOS 6 only on my iPod touch 4, which I use mostly on the subway for books and music. I wanted to try out iOS 6 without messing up Google maps on my iPad or iPhone. Glad I didn't. The Apple maps suck compared with Google's. I plan to keep my iPad and iPhone on 5.1.1 indefinitely.
I stupidly updated my ipad 3 because of all the hype and was intrigued to see what ios 6 was like. If you haven't updated then DON'T. You will be disappointed. Maps is useless with poor quality satellite imagery, Siri is pointless and just a gimmick. Facebook and Twitter has been incorporated into iOS which has given it a'teenage' Fisher price feel. Couldn't care less about twitter or Facebook. It's my own fault but I fell for Apples hype and i feel my iPad is worthless without it being jail broken. Miss sbsettings!!!
Could not agree with you more! Although I am pacifying myself by flirting with Siri all night!
So, now I'm confused.
About to buy my first Apple Device - iPad3 - should I bother or not? Has the update ruined the iPad completely?
I do use Gmaps StreetView - if I get the iPad still should I update to iOS6 or leave it on 5.1.1 & wait? Can I wait, or is the update forced on you after a while?
Google maps was totally useless to me on iOS (I works much better on Android). Now, with the new maps, I can do nav without having to use nearly 2GB of storage! Of course, it is a little too late, as my car now has Nav built in (but it's maps are far behind both Google and Apple, but still useable). We have a new building at work and you can see it on the Apple maps, so I know they are recent. I'm sure Apple will improve this over time. People need to be patient. Besides, it won't be long before Google will offer their version in the app store. I promise!
What really chaps my hide, however, if the end of my Nano watch! Argh! Apple. I was expecting at least some new watch faces, but not only didn't I get that, but they offered another Nano? Who buys these things anyway? Must be a great gif for kids....no adult with a smartphone needs an iPod anymore (well, there are a few people who carry about 160GB of music, but they aren't going to buy a Nano). The Nano as a watch was a great idea. They should have made it a bit smaller and added wifi for email. Would have rocked. Now, they just doubled down on dumb.
The importance of streetview or any other feature is up to you. If that "ruins" it for you, don't buy, because you'll eventually be forced to update unless you're willing to lose access to certain apps (because developers will be upgrading their apps to take advantage of iOS 6 and won't be supporting iOS 5 versions forever).
I figure preferences are entirely subjective, and people should buy what suits them best, no matter what brand, model, etc. I don't care whether people buy from Apple or not.
If you want one and can afford it, IMO, it's as simple as buying and trying if you like it, unless streetview is that important to you. As long as you buy from somewhere that allows returns, you can always return during the return period if you don't like the iPad overall.
