    New iPad 3 & I'm new to iOS so I have no experience of iOS 5.1.1

    Should I update the OS to iOS 6 out of the box, or wait until version 6.01 or 6.1 whatever the revised version will be?

    Serious & sensible - ie non ranting replies requested :)

    Thank you.

    Well, that's entirely up to you. If the new features in the latest OS are important to have right away then upgrade immediately. The lack of You Tube and the new maps are an area of concern for many users though so make sure you are OK with that. I doubt it will change with later releases anyways. But, in most cases I would just say to upgrade now and then if/when patches come out you can get those as they are released.

    Appreciate it is my choice :) Just was interested in the "vox populii".

    YouTube I am content with the mobile version via Safari, or the iPhone app or Jasmine.
    Gmaps loss is an issue, but I'll have streetview through android devices, so not too much of an issue.

    I notice your sig line says you are on 5.0.1 - that's quite a few updates you've passed on, isn't it?

    It depends. For me, I've found that despite the Maps issue & missing of Youtube, iOS 6 are great. It's faster & smoother than iOS 5, plus I like the Clock App (LOL)

    I vote IOS6. If you can cope with the main two issues (YouTube and maps) then go for it. Siri alone is worth it. Lots of improvements.

    I haven't upgraded myself and judging by the recent reviews I might not at least until they can improve on some stuff.

    Stick with it. It's surprising sometimes how a thread can attract such little interest, when the subject matter is obviously of interest to so many people. Have a look at the website version of the forum and you'll see a major disparity between the number of views and the number of replies. 10% replies is a huge number.

    In this case, I think it's early days. I haven't made a firm decision yet as to whether I'm going to update. I intended to update my iPad first, but my son has filled it up with apps, so I have some housekeeping to do beforehand. I don't intend to update my iPhone until I have seen what the effect is on my iPad.

    If you depend on the Maps apps that used Google's maps, then you best stay with iOS 5.1. However, if that is not important to you, I say do the update. It went very smoothly for me.

    I think the new iOS has potential to become better if you want to use iOS 6 as a kind of feel threw then go for it but if its down to usefulness you may want to wait.

    Yes. I'm very pleased with the update. Having watched the keynote speech from the WWDC, I also have a bit more understanding now as to where Apple are going with iOS and OSX, and since I intend to buy a Mac when I need a computer replacement, I find that their vision ties nicely into my expectations and requirements.

    The line from Apple said that upgrading to IOS 6 would make more apps available and so I went ahead on both my ipad2 as well as the newer ipad3.

    1. I found that it took several attempts before both I pads could get upgraded.
    2. Some early reactions are:
    a) I miss YouTube and google maps
    B) the clocks app is great!
    C) the pull to refresh is a good, though not so apparent, feature on most of the apps.
    D) you can limit ads through the general setting tab in the settings menu.


    Will post more based on increasing familiarity with the new OS!

    For me personally I am keeping all my iOS devices on iOS 5. I would be losing more than I am gaining with the apps I use/don't use. I'm pretty upset with all this Apple vs Google crap because it is now having a negative effect on me.

    I'm a total noob who only had her iPad2 for a couple of weeks before upgrading to IOS6 when it came out. I've lost my AutoFill ability, tho I've checked all of my settings and should be fine. Any advice?
