    you may have to hit restore in iTunes to download official release as it will detect iOS 6 on your device and say your up to date if you hit check for updates. I went from beta 6 to GM no issues.

    Remember always backup before updating ;)

    You'll need to option-update via iTunes, but you don't need to do a full restore.

    Would it be safer to back up to iCloud, or iTunes?

    I said hit restore so that iTunes would download iOS 6 you can easily unplug device during download
    doing option-update does not download iOS 6

    up to you, for me I always find it convenient to do it via PC as it's quicker for apps to be synced
