    I have 4S and operating system 5.1.1. Is it possible to upgrade to iO6? And would it be wise to do so?

    It's not out yet. I think it will rollout by Wednesday 19th. I do not know what time it will come out tho.

    Thanks for your reply. But I am concerned with Maps... I would like to explore the Map service offered by Apple but at the same time I don't want to lose Google Maps. Can I keep both maps?

    iOS 6 is really nice. It's not earth shattering, but some of the changes, especially maps, is great! I've been using the new maps for a couple of months now and it's very smooth. I have heard some people say its terrible but my experience with it has been the total opposite. I would get so agitated with google maps! iOS 6 maps has worked so much better for me. Sure, it's still in beta, it can only get better.

    I'm having the same thoughts: since google maps and you tube were part the iOS, when you upgrade the iOS to 6, will they be removed? I'm not yet convinced they'll stay.

    Yes, both are removed. But you can get the stand alone YouTube app. It's quite nice

    I already downloaded the YouTube app. It's good. I use maps several times a day. So I'm hoping to have a good experience like you.

    iOS6 runs quite nicely on the 4S. I would definitely recommend the upgrade!

    No you cannot. Once you update google maps and YouTube are gone. I downloaded the GM version on my iPhone 4. One thing I have noticed was that the colors seemed to be enhanced specially dark black colors maybe its just me

    I'll echo that, the stand alone YouTube app is better than what's on the iOS5

    I may be off topic but I'm kind of glad that the YouTube app and google maps have been removed. Cause now google can actually update YouTube without having to do it through a firmware update. And for those that have an iPhone 4 or will get one now that they'll be free through new contract maybe google will release a stand alone google maps app with turn by turn in the App Store. Maybe.

    Yes I also have same feeling that google may launch their standalone google map application in the application store.

    But how and when can I upgrade to iO6? When I go to settings and look for upgrade my phone says my operating system is up to date! Which is ver 5.1.1.

    I think I'll hold out for the jailbreak first. Hope it doesn't take them too long.

    Totally! I always update my current device and then usually have the latest one right after. This time is different.
    I'm not eligible for a full discount upgrade until next year, so I will be using my 4S for a while yet, so heck yeah I'm updating my software!

    The maps application released by Apple is functional all over the world? I mean it has maps for USA only in the starting phase or they cover whole world? Hopefully it's a full fledged application.

    I have read on the net there are many features in it but 40 of them are worth using. Can I upgrade through iTunes on my laptop?
