I upgraded firmware on my New Ipad ... It was a large update .. 791 MB to be exact ... I tried three times, before I could finally download ...

But .. what next?

Apple promised 200 changes .. I have not explored fully, but dont see the footprint of any of the 200 changes ..

Major upgrades should bring visible changes ..right?

Don't see any difference, besides some new apps.
A longer iPhone 4s and almost the same iOS.

... well done apple... not!

All new O/Ss whether it's Android,Windows mobile or PC,Symbian,IOS and all others ALWAYS have bugs when they're very first released.Even the first software update Canon did for my EOS20D camera a few years ago almost bricked it and a lot of people did suffer from full bricks and had to send their new cameras back to Canon to be unbricked.
Seriously guys,why not wait a short while until there aren't 400 kerzillion people all trying to download it at the exact same time?

though i am an apple fan. i just plain hated the ios6. it sucks man. i have a 4s and once i got this, my phone is now behaving so slow. this OS has so many performance issues and lags. god help apple. and apple if your listening please get your act together, youre a software company and this is the standard of os you come out with. if iOS is not improved you will be losing lot of apple hardcore fans just like me.
