    So far I'm digging this. Siri is funny, the Facebook integration is tight & being able to stream all my iTunes Match music OTA is freaking sweet.

    Not sure yet, I'm finding it laggy. I might to a restore and see if that sorts it out.

    I'll let you know how it is after I restore it through iTunes. I dunno whether my over-the-air update messed up - if it's possible to do so - because the iOS6 download timed out half way through. I then reset the iPad, and went to download it again, thinking it would start from scratch, but it carried on from where it timed out. I noticed right away that scrolling was lagging, as was opening and closing apps.

    Also, Apple maps is pretty dire. I dunno whether it's just me, but that's very laggy.

    I am loving it! It runs very smooth on my IPad 3! I can't believe that I have Siri on my iPad!

    That stinks! I did the OTA update, things were a bit laggy for the first few minutes but a quick reboot fixed things.

    I decided that since I will be getting the iPhone 5 on Friday, I won't be updating to iOS 6. It does have a lot of cool updates, but it's not worth losing my jailbreak to me. I'll wait until a jailbreak is released.

    iPad 3 has been updated, absolutely loving it. Maps looks beautiful, but I miss street veiw already, siri is cool and the do not disturb feature is most welcome. Not updating my iPhone though, witing for my 5 to come.

    iPad owners, do it now, no lag here.

    I like ios 6 a lot. Most features are welcomed. I do have some problems with video playback in safari (I don't know about other browsers).

    Liking Siri (iPhone 4 soon to be 5 owner) but no Street view in maps stinks, I also wish the 3d Map was more detailed at close up

    Other than Siri. It's about the same. I don't see anything else that makes it better. I think Apple has done a great job in hardware, but I feel like their evolutionary steps on software will begin wear people down.

    I don't notice a difference. Maps is great and flyover is cool for like 5 minutes. But it seems like they invested and wasted all their time on Maps and not truly evolve the operating system more. It just feels like iOS5+

    Siri is a joke.
    I tried to dictate a note and it got many words incorrect.

    I then thought opening apps by speaking would be cool- but you have to tap the Siri button to activate- so what's the point?
    Just tap the App icon.

    For those that like it:
    How do you guys use it?

    I am pretty disappointed.. I was expecting to be able to use panorama to take photos and I don't see the option...I was expecting a iPad version of the YouTube app but there isn't one (using the browser). I was also under the impression that I would have passbook and full screen safari. First time I've ever been disappointed with apple software.

    While browsing the forums I was able to ask Siri about stock closing prices, she gave me the info & I didn't need to navigate away from this page, I was also able to make notes pretty easily.

    Knowing what features were coming for iPad before I downloaded and still downloaded, I'm pleased with it. Siri is always amusing when it doesn't work and helpful when it does. I love that there is the clock now. No biggie about the YouTube bit because that's an easy fix and the maps are alright. I was used to google maps so it'll take some adjusting but can't complain. Browser seems faster for me and I like the cloud tab feature. I'm still exploring but i am pleased.

    Try Chrome. I held off for quite a while using it on all my iOS devices, but finally gave in. It's a much faster browser. There's real value in it as well if you us it on your PC too.

    Mines been working well. It's nice to have Siri on hand at any point now. Don't have to go searching for the phone Everytime now.
    Plus iPad mini still hasn't come out, so I don't feel left behind yet!! :) lol

    I have an iPad 2, but I have to say that Safari is definitely quicker with iOS 6.
