Not trying to rub it in guys, but Siri is awesome on the iPad. I like the new Clock app too.

Safari on my iPad is so much faster and better. The Map app by Apple really sucks though. I hope Google comes out with a native one soon. Sad

I don't care for the new Maps either. It just doesn't seem as detailed as Google maps. It also seems really slow to me.

I agree, really disappointed in the Map app.

Battery life has improved, after a few hours of on and off usage, I'm still at 100% battery life! ...

+3

I understand why they had to make the switch from Google, but its an inferior product at this time.

I'm rather impressed with the rest of iOS 6. And having Siri on the iPad, is awesome.

I'm not off to a good start. I had to factory reset my iPad 3 to connect with WiFi. It wouldn't connect at all after the update.

I just want Google Maps back! Mad

I also miss the native YouTube app on the iPad. Sad

I've never had Siri before, so it's a welcome addition to the iPad. Smile

Safari is definitely faster! Much faster. Very Happy

The addition of Siri on the iPad is nice. The loss of Google Maps is a kick in the teeth.

I really liked Google maps. If Apple wanted to promote their own map program... fine, but to remove Google maps is horrible. I have never updated an operating system and lost functional programs because of it. This is a first and I'm disappointed. Maps is in it's infancy, but my first impression of it is bad. The street I live on is incorrectly named. I also don't like the look.

Apple Maps are a disaster. It honestly has me thinking twice about buy the iPhone5. Why? I use my phone on the job and need a good map for assistance in making deliveries. So, I'm actually thinking about buying the Samsung Galaxy S3 now instead. I don't really care for Android, but it will get me by until the app from Apple improves or until Google releases a native iOS Maps app. That's just how important it is to me. I need a new phone and can't waste time.

I would love to have an iPad running iOS 6. Think I'm going to wait until they come out with something new though. I hate to say it, but the "new" iPad is sort of EOL without the lighting connector. Even though it will take some time for the new and/or exciting accessories to come out. Don't you think?
