    So I know people that pre-ordered the iPhone 5 which they will receive this Friday. When these people receive their iPhone 5, is iOS 6 already pre-installed?

    --- That isn't too bad. Some people that pre-ordered are expected to get theirs within 3-4 weeks. Anyways, do you think when your phone arrives at your doorstep is that iOS had already been installed?

    Less excited about my iPhone 5 after putting iOS 6 through its paces on my iPad 3.

    The newest iPhone always comes with the latest software. iOS5 wouldn't have any support for the iPhone 6.

    I see. Is it possible to downgrade to 5.1.1 on the iPhone 5? I want to keep it to 5.1.1 till Apple fixes the bugs on 6.

    nope, since there's isn't any 5.1.1 firmware that's compatible with the iPhone 5. You're stuck with iOS 6.

    This is definitely not good. Can't downgrade from 6 to 5.1.1. Hopefully, Google will bust out the Google Map app very soon. Apple and Google should realize that they will make better things if they work together.
