My iPad just told me that an update is available. And I also have 30 app updates waiting! I have downloaded them on iTunes but not on the iPad yet. I will probably upgrade this week-end.

The Apple servers must be overloaded at the moment, downloads are very slow.

I'm curious about the maps app. Most of the features people complain are gone I didn't even know existed, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem for me

Then don't travel to Berlin using iOS Maps, because you'll end up in Antarctica

LOL! Indeed. I do use GPS with my 3GS, but 99% of the time I use Sygic for turn by turn and for warnings about overspeeding, school zones and speed and red light cameras. I dont speed and I do try to pay attention but sometimes I forget and the speedo creeps up a bit, I've set Sygic to blow a whistle every time I go over the limit. It works for me. And thats something google maps never did, and Apple maps will never do (well, maybe some day, but right now, no)

for me I dont find maps as bad as I expected

It shows everything fine (I live in a small village), Berlin is shown as in Germany and Hoover Dam that I saw screenshots of yesterday looking wrong looks ok for me

have Apple changed anything in the background over night

I also use the reading app to read Google eBooks. It is in G-whizz. But since it is free, why not use it to access the maps. I prefer the screen display without the overhead of a browser on the screen.

My biggest disappointment so far is the app store. When you look at the description of a product it is no longer a full page and if you try and scroll it or are not careful with your taps you can easily loose the page and go off into never never land or some such place. It is annoying. Give us the full screen for app descriptions!

Well I upgraded my iPad last night, and so far everything seems to be working. I agree with the comment earlier about the app store: it stinks. As an app addict I spend a lot of time in the app store, and it was never a great user experience, but now it positively stinks.

I haven't opened the maps app yet.

Apple released iOS 6.0.1 this morning. OTA update went smooth on my iPt4.

Here's the full change log:
  • Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air
  • Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
  • Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
  • Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod Touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
  • Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
  • Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
  • Fixes a Passcode Lock bug that sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
  • Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings

Thanks for the info.

Nothing about the bug where you can no longer deactivate the Game Center, and it keeps nagging you to death unless you give in and log on to the damn thing. This one has been driving me crazy.

I don't see any reason to upgrade my iPod Touch 4G to iOS 6. Are there any?

In the meantime it downloaded 6.0.1 without asking me first, and the Settings app has a little red "1" on it. Is there any way to recover the space?

I don't know of any reasons to do so. I upgraded my iPt4 to iOS 6 and haven't noticed any changes or improvements. But then, I only use mine for audiobooks and streaming audio (BBC, Pandora, etc).

As far as I can remember, the only positive thing about iOS6 is the French dictionary (and a few other languages too I think). The rest has been minor annoyances at best. So if you are not interested in the dictionaries and already have iOS5, I think you can skip this one.

Does the red "1" mean the upgrade is downloaded already? I guess that explains why my iPhone was filled almost to its capacity last night. I don't know how to remove the files, except maybe restore from the last iTunes backup if you have a recent one.

No, the red "1" indicates there is an upgrade ready to download.
