I will be one of the people who won't be immediately upgrading to iOS6. I have a few reasons why. Do we have anyone else that doesn't see the need to upgrade?

Pointless

What a pointless topic to raise.

"I'm not going to upgrade to IOS 6 but I'm not going to tell you, it's a secret"

Keeping up to date on software / releases is always best even just to take advantage of improvements in security / performance / stability. You may but like the UI changes but it makes sense to keep moving forward.

I can't say. It keeps getting censored. I said this before and whenever I say the reason, they swoop in and lock the topic.

So now I have to be careful about how I say it because they're watching, and they don't want people to know. It's a conglomeration. And I'm really tired of it.

But I will say this: just because it's new doesn't mean it's better. We have seen this many times on many different OS's. Sometimes what you have is fine, and you can wait until the next release over. Sometimes it's fine to skip some releases.

That's completely your prerogative... I; on the the other hand, am already running a beta that (for me anyways) has been better than the final version of 5.1.1. Everything in iOS 6 seems polished and more refined. I say skip the release if that's what makes you happy.. I wish more people were like you; it might make it easier to download the final OS and not have the servers get bogged down ;)

You are not being censored, you are not making any sense. Google maintains the apps, not apple (see the macrumors home page updates). The Licensing expired so Google is coming up with a replacement. All of youtube supports HTML5 which is fully suported by the iphone already. You can just go to youtube.com and browse away. It works better than the app anyway.

Also, don't judge maps until you use it. Its still in beta stages and has been updated fairly regularly with improvements since.

I don't know why something like this would get you so worked up. Its just a phone....

Can't say. They'll just lock the topic. It's sad that you can't actually talk like you really want to here. I guess undying devotion is more important than anything. Even if it requires ignorance. And hey, don't be so naive.

It's not about that. It's about not being able to do what you once could do. Who downloads an update in order to be set back? Yes it might look a little more polished, but it doesn't look all that different.

About getting set back, that's too much of a risk to take, just because Apple wants to gain independence, you're forced to join their startup. Knowing that it's not better than what we previously had. It will be easier just to not upgrade to it. iOS5 looks like a better upgrade than iOS6.

So far, with iOS6, I just have a list of things that I don't want on the device. And nothing that I actually to want. So for me iOS6 is like the unlucky version, the ugly duckling of iOS releases.

I'm with you OP. I always wear my tinfoil hat when browsing Macrumors. You can never be too safe.

I never said I was being set back (You inferred it). I for one enjoyed the YouTube app, but I can live without something that hasn't been updated in years. Maps are being replaced, but that's also something I don't really care about (personally). I have TomTom installed on my iPhone for anytime I need directions/offline mapping. You seem confused...

What exactly are you looking for in an OS update by the way?

Question for you audix: Why do you feel the need to tell ppl that you won't upgrade to the new iOS because it's not for you? I mean, com on.... deos anyone really care? It's an option for you, you take it or you leave it.

And btw, removing youtube is the best thing Apple has done on the latest beta.

And to answer your question, i will be upgrading to iOS 6 right at the first second it is available. I like moving forward and not backwards.

I'm using rubber gloves while writing in MR; not leaving any finger print in the treats I'm writing. "They" will not find me ... :cool:

Oh, and I will update the day it's out (beside running already the beta officially)

It's not like there isn't already a thread for those to vent their frustrations that iOS 6 isn't what they wanted.
