    Just finished updating to IOS 6 and I was disappointed that SIRI as it was rumored is not available on Ipad 2. Another problem I have is that I'm having trouble finding the new Maps application. I can't find the Icon anywhere ?

    Ok found the maps app in one of my folders. Still i would have really wanted the Siri feature to work on my Ipad 2. Siri is great for rapidly opening apps by just saying their name in IOS 6.

    It certainly would have been nice if Apple would have made Siri available on the iPad 2. However, it has been known now since the IOS 6 beta was released months ago that it would not be available on the iPad 2.

    Everyone seems to be dogging Maps...but this has voice turn-by-turn directions...the google maps didn't have that on my iphone...it's was useless for nav. This new version is useful.

    So far i'm happy with it. The 3d maps is better than the Google Earth version.

    Those that are complaining about maps because voice turn by turn isn't available in all the countries.
