    Just a warning to all, I permanently reside in the US but am in Australia until Nov. I updated to iOS 6 this morning and now can no longer use the app store because "my account is not authorised to make purchases from Australia app store". Before the update I could download apps and update them just fine. So if you're outside of the country and want to continue to have your apps updated and whatnot, beware of iOS 6 for now.

    Switching to a different country's App Store is rather easy. When you log in with your US App Store account, it should offer you a switch to US App Store, if not, you can change it from Settings -> iTunes & App Store. I have a US account, but live in China, updating with no issues. (well at least not related to App Store account, that is)
