    Despite some random stability issues and quirks every now and again, iOS 6 is pure love to my fingertips, both for my iPad and iPhone.

    Dare I say it, *looks around nervously*, I actually LOVE Apples new Maps app.

    *ducks to avoid incoming thrown objects*
    I kinda have to agree I kinda like the maps feature big emphasis on "kinda" only because I live in Boston and I use the MBTA 90% of the time and the removal of transit was a killer for me and I'm still trying to find a work around for it. Other then that its design and concept is beautiful but still needs a lot of work before I can call it a google maps replacement. Until then looks what's right next to Maps lol.

    Wow, first off, I love iOS6, and in regards to the dial pad, I put my iP4 on iOS6 next to my coworkers iP4 on iOS5.1 and the only difference we saw was the color, from black to white.

    why don't you just download a map of the boston transit system from google images and save that. boston transit map - Google Search
    And isn't there a boston mta iphone app?

    MBTA.com > Online Trip Planning Tools
    I also found this OpenMBTA for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    I used to live in chicago, San Francisco, and DC. Honestly i just memorized where i needed to go in a few weeks plus i just read the map like people had to for decades. You could always use the google website too. I'm in LA now so nobody walks so turn by turn is much more important. That said i found that it utterly kills my battery in 30 minutes so not really useful.

    I still find it hard to believe there were that many people using Google Maps to start with. They didn't offer turn by turn navigation and were useless in the car, if not downright dangerous. The only time I ever opened Google Maps was by accident. I always used TomTom - and will continue to use TomTom, although I do like the ease with which you can try alternate routes in Apple's maps.

    I used Google Maps all the time, but not for turn-by-turn navigation. I used it mainly to locate places and for an overview on how to get there. It was very useful in that regard to me. I now do the same with Apple maps.

    I say don't upgrade to iOS6 until it gets out of beta. Unfinished Maps, no YouTube, iOS6 is not ready yet.

    I just liked the convenience of having everything together. Spoiled I guess. I am going to try out two or three and maybe find one that works best for me.

    I upgraded my sister's iPad just out of curiosity. And the results I discovered was this.

    iOS6 can be explained by no other words than a work in progress. There's nothing wrong with that, but I just like to have the comfort of using something that I know actually works. She actually came back and said, "Why did you upgrade? Safari's messed up, change it back."

    And iOS users better be glad that Google, out of the kindness of their own heart, decided to make a YouTube app. Although it would've been one storm I would like to have seen.

    It's not that iOS6 is bad. They could've waited, or released it last year. I'm actually curious as to how many people actually upgraded vs who didn't.

    Just out of curiosity, what was wrong with Safari? YouTube is not part of iOS so that's a nonissue with the exception that some people miss it. Also, you called it a work in progress, but failed to mention what you liked and disliked about iOS 6 after you installed it on your sister's iPad. Please be specific.

    Isn't EVERYTHING in life a "work in progress"? Nothing is ever finished. Or perfect. It is what it is.

    iOS5 has it's established bugs, but it you know what it is and it works. Other than that, nothing was wrong with it.

    iOS6 is okay, but there's pieces missing. By iOS7, everything can change. I feel Apple is just getting started.

    C'mon metrion. Stop making general statements and be specific. What specific pieces are missing from iOS 6, in you opinion and specifically, how might everything change by iOS 7, in your opinion?

    I don't know where to start. iOS6 brought things that may have seemed new to anyone that didn't previously own an iPhone. Passbook? Apple is late to the game. I can't tell you how many people already have The alternative app for that. Key Rings! Baby!

    Panoramic photos. Again. Come on Apple. You don't even have to have been looking on the app store to have inadvertently run into one of these panormic apps. Again, the alternative apps do more. Too many to name.

    Siri gets Sports and Movies. That's so boring, no one even cared.

    I'm not even going to go any further, iOS6 is just an old update. Apple is increasingly taking ideas out of it's own app store and trying to make them into big sellers. Just because it worked with Siri doesn't mean you can rip off any old app and turn it into a success.

    That's what they've learned this time.

    Exciting would've been a Maps that was actually worth something, good 3d renders and not something that looks like a 90's videogame. And please have some real data, not tons of missing streets and no bus or subway routes. Siri was supposed to have become more understanding. It was supposed to have been able to do flights. That would have been exciting.
