Apple iOS 6 starts seeding to iDevices around the globe - read the full textApple has just started seeding its latest iOS 6 to iDevices around the globe. If you own a 4S, 4, 3GS or iPad 2, new iPad and iPod Touch you can expect to get the update in the following hours. This is the first iOS release that's available over the air so you can check the Software update...

The revolutionary features of ios 6 are:
1. A new clock on home screen
2. Facebook integration but not working in my ipad 2
3. Useless apple maps which is no where near the quality of google maps (I am from India)
4. Internet connectivity through wi-fi is not consistent. Pages are not loading in chrome browser.
5. Google maps browser version also not loading both in safari as well as chrome.
6. No youtube

Apple, what are you thinking? Please don't take us for a ride.

Whenever I had the ipad 2 in my hand it felt great. But now started hating it.

I upgraded to ios6 in pakistan on my ipad2 and i am surely disappointed. Having wifi issues as well as my apps arent downloading, gets stuck every 10sec. No visual treat at all. Apple. Not sure what others see in u that i cant. The moment i get a decent replacement with android tablet for the ipad...iam gone.

I downloaded the iOS 6 to my iPhone 4s via wifi, this resulted in a screen telling me to connect to iTunes after all the download was complete, after I connected the iPhone to the iTunes it started downloading the iOS again, then the phone restarted a new wipping everything on it, without a chance to back up or restore anything.

I recommend for all users of the iphone 4s or lower to not install the iOS 6.

Just downgraded mi 4s to 5.1.1., absolute rubbish, and "improved" GSP maps by TomTom are a kid's joke compared to Google Maps.
Also, the 3g sharing works erratically.

Trust be, stick with 5.1.1.

Just upgraded. Works great.
Nothing special about changes. Yes, maps for pedestrians are much worst, but otherwise not bad OS.
I guess i'm not person who needs all these new features. At least i don't have any problems with new iOS, works great.

Got my iPad 2 updated to iOS6. Now the wifi is slow, especially google chrome is not loading web pages as it used to be earlier. I was expecting something great with the new apple maps but what is got is mere frustration. No way it can be compared to google maps. May be it is better for U.S but in India it is totally awful as there are no details in the maps. Another missing feature is youtube and hoping that google will release an app for that as well as google maps for iPads. In short this is not an update but a downgrade.
