    I'm thinking about updating to iOS 6.

    Will my songs, videos, photos, apps be intact? Or will the upgrade wipe it all out and force me to reinstall everything again?

    I have like 40 Gigs of stuff on my phone - I REALLY don't want to reinstall 40 Gigs of stuff - ESPECIALLY from iTunes and it's slow & clumsy interface.

    (Not to mention iTunes likes to delete my Playlists whenever I plug my iPhone into it for some reason...? But that's a whole other issue...)


    Just curious.

    Thanks.

    Backup first and update over the air, all will be fine.

    Just backup first in iTunes.

    I'm pretty sure the update leaves all your stuff intact. But you might want to back up your iPhone with iTunes just incase something goes wrong.
