    I keep seeing this update in my queue and at times I get very tempted to go ahead and hit update but something stays to me nahhhh...especially when I read people desire to go back to the old, but I'm not seeing those threads as much as I was when it was 6.0 so is 6.0.1 much better, worthy of letting go of 5.1.1?

    I don't use maps on the ipad ever so thats not an issue, however I do bum around in youtube from time to time to catch old classic shows I forgot exsisted, so i may miss the convenience of having that app and its setup. Other than that do I have anything else to lose? What have your experience been since you left 5.1 do you regret it?

    iOS 6 really feels more like iOS 5.2 to me. I suppose the addition of Siri is nice and if you are a heavy social media user the integrated Facebook and Twitter support is nice too.

    Further there aren't any real changes for my feeling (besides Apple maps of course).

    I don't regret it all. If you use YouTube a lot, you can either add it to your Homescreen or use one of the many 3rd party YT apps. I've read that Jasmine is a pretty good alternative.

    Most tweaks have iPad counterparts. You're good.
