Official counting down to iOS 6 forum party!
This is it. Today's the day. If history is any indicator, iOS 6 should land at roughly 10am PDT/1pm EDT today. I'm hauling *** to get our review ready, but if you're waiting like we are, why not wait with us?
What's your favorite new feature? Find any awesome hidden gems? Are you going to update over the air or install clean with iTunes? Anyone feeling left out because their device isn't getting something?
There's so much to discuss! We'll get the rest of the writers and staff in here, maybe give away some more stuff, and in general have some fun.
So, hang out and shout out. Who's ready for iOS 6?

I'm ready! Not sure what time it'll show up here in the UK, I'm hoping to update OTA if possible otherwise I'll dust off the laptop and go through iTunes! Favourite new feature I'm not sure, I won't get everything as I've only got a 4, but I'm still looking forward to updating!

Will it be available for the iPad 1?
Hey Eklenken, for being first to join in, you get a $50 iTunes gift card. (Every party needs music, right?)
Enjoy! (Michelle will follow up with you within the week)
More fun stuff to come!

I've already made sure my iTunes is up to date, iPhone is backed up, etc. Now I'm just waiting.
I'm not sure of the feature I'd like to try the most. But, more importantly I seriously hope it doesn't make the iPhone 4S slow or laggy...

Once the update comes out I'll be applying it OTA - I'll do the iTunes route only if I have to. There are a couple features that I am waiting for - the ability to have a specific mail account make a notification (I have 3 on my phone, but only one that I want notifications from) and auto-shutoff (or silence) and startup (kinda like what BB has).

I'm hoping my iPhone 4 can pull the update OTA. With 5.0 I had to do a full restore after the update failed.

I already had iOS 6 GM loaded, but will be updating the girl's iPhone and the kids iPad. Can't wait to activate the single app mode on the kids iPad."If at first you don't succeed, hide all evidence you've tried"... -- Terrence C.
