    Hi All,

    I still have not updated my iPad 3 to 6.1.2. Should I update it? The reason I haven't is because I read somewhere it takes up 1gb. Suggestions?

    Thanks,

    cfs

    There'll be a 6.1.3 around shortly, to fix a bug introduced in 6.1 that allows Lock Screen circumventing on iPhones. It may or may not also be available for the iPad.

    Better just to wait, I'd say.

    What iOS version are you on? If you're on iOS 6.1, I would say you don't have to restore unless iOS 6.1.2 fixes a bug that affects you

    If you're under iOS 6.1, then I would recommend updating since iOS 6.1.2 contains lots of bug fixes.

    Just update OTA (using settings -> updates) if you use stock. If you jailbreak, restore to iOS 6.1.2 using iTunes.

    And iOS 6.1.2 should be around the same size as all the other iOS 6 packages give or take 50-100MB more

    6.1.2 sucks for battery life. I don't suggest it. Was a lot better before.

    This gets old.

    EVERY time an iOS update comes out, people say the same thing.

    "6.1.2 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "6.1.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "6.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "6.0.2 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "6.0.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "6.0 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "5.1.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "5.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "5.0.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "5.0 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "4.3.5 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "4.3.4 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "4.3.3 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "4.3.2 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "4.3.1 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    "4.3 sucks for battery life! It was better last time."
    ...
    ..
    .

    WE GET IT

    EVERY release *ALWAYS* "sucks for battery" life for someone.

    Since it gets worse EVERY release, people are probably down to 5 minutes of battery life, TOPS.

    no issues with 6.1.2. if you are plannin on jailbreaking, then go for it n dont wait for 6.1.3, as with that, u wont be able to jailbreak... yet.
    i'd say go for it. and yeah, incase u DO plan on jailbreaking at whatever time, make sure you update via itunes and NOT OTA.
    hope this helps.

    If you do jailbreak Cydia will automatically save your so called SHSH or blobs.
    They are needed for future downgrade or re-restore of jailbreakable firmwares.

    If you upgrade OTA the ramdisk will be different then with an iTunes upgrade and will not allow any downgrade or re-restore.
    Therefore it is advised to use the itunes restore instead of the OTA.

    @OP
    If the 1 Gb is your only concern then go for it, your current firmware is taking up roughly the same space. Upgrading replaces your current firmware so it won't effect available storage.

    This is stock. Even the prior update was stock, not jail broken. I have never usually complained about battery life until 6.1.2, every other update had either the same or better battery life for me. I don't know what it was that is causing it to drain because I'm using it the exact same as before.

    I would do not like to go to IOS 6.1 let alone IOS6.1.2, I am so exciting and use to using the jailbreak version on OS5.1.1 any way.

    I've experienced network data connection problems since updating from 6.1.1 to 6.1.2, if I lose it completely, I usually need to restart to get it back.

    There were no changes to the radio firmware. My guess is you need to do a restore.
