    I've been using iOS 6 for a few months now. Overall, I've found it to be a rather solid update. The three major features being Siri, Maps and Facebook integration. Shared Photostreams is also something I see as having tremendous value for me personally.

    I'm less than thrilled with the new dialer. I didn't think it would last to the public release. I just don't get it. It doesn't look like it belongs within iOS.

    What are you impressions of iOS 6?

    I've downloaded, but not pulled the trigger on the actual update yet. Still undecided whether to wait for the jailbreak to be available.

    Downloaded and installed with no issue, can't seem to get passbook working, it says it can't get to iTunes Store. But other features are nice. Still diving deep.

    OK, I've pulled the trigger on the iPad2 now. It hit a glitch and I had to do a restore, but iOS 6 is on there now, and it is currently re-synching all my music and apps right now. About 2500 songs and 227 apps.

    I pulled the trigger on my iPad 2...installed without a hitch... My Verizon 3G is actually faster but it could be coincidental, not sure... No passbook that I've seen. Still investigating the rest...

    Frankly not sure what the big deal is, not saying its bad, just not sure what all the fuss is.

    So far I like it . I saw the moved Bluetooth setting to the front page that plus just wish Siri would turn it on maybe in 5s. Love the new map. On my iPad 2 they added the clock.

    Same here but only on my 4S on VZW...My 4 on AT&T seems to be working.

    Very strange because I can get to the iTunes store through the iTunes App just fine.

    The flyover maps are really nice, but I find that after a while the app crashes on my iPhone 4S. Anyone else find this?

    I agree.

    Maybe it's a better update on the iPhone 4S and 5, but on the iPhone 4 it's hasn't that "wow" factor I thought it would have.

    I think something is wrong with me. I've now installed iOS6, and am sitting here looking at my iPhone 4S, and wondering, now what?

    I'm still not seeing the whole 'wow' factor yet. The tweet from the notification bar is okay, and so is the panorama photo taking option. But...

    I am planning on loving the Do Not Disturb Feature. No more sportstap notifying me when asleep...

    OMG Siri can understand what I say AMAZING
    This is BIG
    I was not all that excited about the Siri update knowing she can't make out my accent
    But most may not realize this but they must have updated there too.
    She has so far understood 9 out of 10 commands before it was 2 out of 10

    Mindi just updated her iPad to iOS 6. My impressions are that it makes her late to go out for lunch. I'm starving. Now she wants a penny from me to compare the size of the new connector. Of course, my penny isn't shiny enough.

    I'l never eat today.
