    I think that after Apple fixes the bugs that are in iOS 6, it will be better for the most part than iOS 5. It think I'll wait around and see how it goes.

    Nah. iOS updates always bring both improvements and shortfalls, but I'm a believer in having the latest software. I'm not going to jailbreak my iPad again I don't think, but I look forward to rejailbreaking my iPhone 4S again on iOS 6. :)

    No. I already have alternate map apps I can use if needed until Apple gets it together. Besides, I just grabbed the iPhone 5 and I want to be consistent across my devices.

    I used the Map app on my drive home. It worked pretty well, but I'm not on any side roads.

    There are tons of nice little things too, many of them address the little irritations people have been complaining about.

    I would downgrade back to 5.1.1

    Just so disappointed to lose youtube app on iPad, and google maps from all devices.
    Can't believe how much I miss google maps from my iPhone. Used it a great deal and apple maps just doesn't compare, and i cannot see it being improved to the quality and reliability of google maps anytime soon, if ever.

    Lol still love my iPad and iPhone though.
    Guess there will eventually be a youtube app out for the iPad and hopefully apple will allow google maps to the app store.

    The only thing I like so far from the update, is having the bluetooth option on the first page of the settings screen.✌

    Remember that although iOS6 doesnt carry you tube as a standard package, it can be downloaded from app store

    You can no longer downgrade, the signing window for iOS 5.1.1 closed yesterday. At the current time, anyone on iOS 6 is stuck there.

    iOS 6 is a winner in my book.

    Would I like multitouch gestures to work reliably?

    Would I like a reliable wireless connection?

    Would I like decent performance?

    I'd downgrade in a heartbeat. Really rather upset. Used to like my iPad, now it feels like I've been swindled.

    I'm purposely keeping my iPad and iPhone on iOS 5.1.1 to keep Google maps. I did upgrade my touch 4, because I use it for mostly books and music, and I figured that Apple wouldn't further break the music app after the last upgrade.

    My touch lets me check out iOS 6 without breaking what I like on iPad and iPhone. I haven't found any iOS 6 feature that I'd trade Google maps for. I'd also hesitate over YouTube, but I haven't tested the diff between iOS 5.1.1 and 6 YouTube functions, because I mostly look at YouTube when people email me links, and I don't have any email accounts at all on my touch. My main YouTube priority is that the app auto-launch from an email link.

    And have it all stretched out like that?
    I tried using the iPhone version on the iPad but can't be doing with it. It looks awful, and not really any comparison to the old app.

    Turned Siri off. I see no benefit for me for it.

    It doesn't compare well to the previous installed app but it gets the job done for the few months it will take Google to grind out an app made for iPad.

    My experience with progress is you need to pause and refresh, even take a momentary step back sometimes, to see the bigger picture and where you want to be in it.
