    Hi there. I've been reading various threads on updating to ios6. Most people are saying not to because there are some disadvantages such as losing YouTube app, and others which i cant remember! Please can anyone give any advice on whether to update my ipad2 or not? I realise you can access YouTube through safari which is not that big a deal for me, and one of the apps I have (iPhoto) will not let me update until I upgrade to 6. So, pros and cons please, to help me make up my mind!
    Many thanks

    If you update you will lose Streetview in Google Maps. All other aspects of Google Maps are still available by using Safari to access it. You lose the integration of YouTube, but several clients are available. iOS still enables you to upload video to YouTube. You may have to reset network settings, as iOS 6 can monkey with your present settings. Also, wifi tethering appears to be broken, although BlueTooth still works. That's about it for the downside.

    Positives are Do Not Disturb, better email including separate signatures for multiple accounts and easier attachments, iCloud bookmarks in Safari, synced keyboard shortcuts across devices, integration of Facebook and a heap of other things which may or may not be useful to you.
