    I don't know if this is the right place but I'm wondering how many iPhone 4 users are not bothering with iOS 6. It seems for iPhone 4 users, there's nothing of note (that works for us) and we lose Google maps. I use maps a lot so this is a big deal.

    Anyhow just curious what others think.

    IPhone 4s user here and I'm also not bothering with iOS 6. 5.1.1 is just perfect for 4s . Exceptional battery life and super fast. can't ask for more!

    Wasn't going to bother but went ahead last night out of curiosity.

    You are right, not much gained, just looking in my area maps is missing some local train stations and a small private airport. Luckily already have a proper GPS installed.

    Is faster and pretty though :rolleyes:

    Am happy to have upgraded. iOS 6 was nowhere near as bad as upgrading my iPhone 3G to 4. Some pretty good additions in fact and the maps app doesn't seem so bad for me. Battery life seems no worse.

    I was sceptical but am actually impressed. Will probably get the iPhone 5 but its not urgent.

    I have upgraded but I don't see any improvement. Battery as bad as usual.
    Hopefully maps will get fixed soon

    Fyi You can reinstall the app for google maps. As far as the update it is killing my battery life.

    I see absolutely no reason to upgrade an iPhone 4 to iOS6. It's only takes away things you already have. Why would you do that? Maps, alone, is reason enough to stay far, far away from iOS6.

    Not true, the only thing you loose initially is the you tube and google map app. Both I downloaded in a few seconds after the upgrade. iTunes app updates are far superior and more user friendly in 6. The apple turn by turn won't speak to you,(iphone4 only) but it is much easier to read while in the car.

    I didn't think the google map app had been submitted yet, let alone approved. Am I missing something?

    I have upgraded my iPhone 4S and iPad 3 and bought the new iPhone 5. I have found that I am getting about the same battery life, the map images are old but the streets and locations seem to be in the right place FOR MY AREA!. I like the music view better with iOS 6 (particularly that the playlist will move to the area that the current song is being played).

    As the map data is updated and corrected, new passbook apps are released to allow useful passbook integration, then we will see all that iOS 6 will do. Right now there are some deficiencies but they are not unsolvable and for some are not even noticeable. So the old saying "your mileage may vary" applies to how iOS 6 is received by everyone.

    How did you do that?


    Apple should of left the pop cast and the FaceTime application alone.
