    The gears rotate during the OTA update.

    OTA is rather rad.

    Apparently guided access works now. My daughter cheers!

    Just finished updating. Guided access does work and it's amazingly customizable. You can disable specific areas of the screen just by circling them. Really cool. I can't tell you how incredibly useful this will be.

    It lets you lock the home button and app-switching gestures. You can also disable touch and motion control as well as disable specific areas of the screen. It's a godsend if you let your little ones play with your iToys.

    Stops school kids from loading safari to google the answers. I laughed at that on the keynote.

    Is it me or do a lot of items (icons) look more retina?

    Also anyone use Siri to launch applications? I like it. Works well for everything except the iCafe app. It keeps wanting to search the web for restaurants.

    Have you tried Single-app mode? Dying to know exactly how you enter and exit it.

    iOS 6 beta 1 bugs have been fixed. Apple maps would crash every time you tried to input an address in the address bar on the maps, that is no longer the case it works great!

    Maps for me seems a lot faster in 2D, perhaps slower in 3D.

    Maybe this was in Beta 1 and I just didn't notice, but pull-down to refresh in the Mail Inbox now has a funky, fun animation.

    One thing I don't like is when I talk on the phone for longer than a minute it goes back to the lock screen. If I need to change anything during the call such as switch to speaker I have to slide to unlock.

    That doesn't sound good at all. Bug maybe?

    I have noticed that the timer does not continue to run in the background. When I lock the screen the timer stops. Not sure if this was due to upadate or if its a glitch in IOS 6. Anyone else having this issue?
