I did on my 4S and iPad 3. The panoramic photo option on the 4S is interesting. Maps is working well for me. The satellite view is okay but it would be nice if the distortion could be removed. Even so, there seems to be more detail than the google version. I like the nav so far.

If you want google maps, you can put a link from the website on the screen like an app. I'm suspicious of the Facebook integration. I did some research and it looks like enabling it may allow access to your contact list which makes a mess. It appears this can be turned off in the preferences. Oh yeah, if you aren't paying attention, because of the integration you could wind up sending a photo or text to Facebook instead of the desired recipient. Some actress accidentally sent a tit shot to her twitter feed instead of her fiancé.

If you have to have the 4S to get the cool updates, when mine does show it is able to update, I will probably just leave it how it is.
I didn't see a message for the new update either on my iPhone 4. So I went to Settings and when I looked at the Software Update, it stated that I needed 2.5 gig of free space. I had 1.1 available, so it wouldn't let me update until I cleared enough off of my phone. After that, no issues with iOS6.

I put my address in and it shows a tree that was cut down in 1998.
my battery like is about 1/2 what it was.
my love for the iPhone has dropped considerably
Like any upgrade for anything, you might want to do a hard reset after you upgrade. Instructions here:

Map accuracy is really bad. My sat view is showing the previous owners's rv in the drive. We've lived here for over 4 years.

That is probably my problem as well. I don't have that much free space. 2.5 gig of space for an update.

Have people been backing up their phones, to the Cloud or otherwise, before uploading the new OS?

Installed it on my 3GS... two days before my 5 arrived at my door.

Ever so slightly faster (on the 3GS), panorama photo is neat, maps are faster but need more info. The Do Not Disturb function is interesting, but as I'm already in the habit of putting my phone on vibrate and setting it face down on my night table before going to sleep, I find it not necessary for me.

On the 5, everything is blazing fast and smooth as one would expect. Unless you need the Google maps, do the upgrade.

I haven't been able to check my email since upgrading, via Verizons network, or WiFi.. and surfing the web is pretty difficult as well.

I was wondering how the TSA guy who looks at the boarding pass before you go through the metal detector deals with this? They don't fill me with confidence, and seem like they would over-react when faced with something new.

I did my phone and iPad. The iPad seems to be an improvement in resolution (maybe I'm imagining it). I also subscribed to iCloud for my music hosting and I'm very impressed so far. It's $25 a year but I can stream my tunes/podcasts/videos to any enabled device. I like that feature.

The Facebook integration is a concern as I don't do Facebook and find their draconian hooks into contact lists fucking annoying. I have that part disabled but don't trust it yet.

I'm not much of a gamer but the few I have I use to play with friends over the Internet. There's been a growing trend of Facebook only Multi player functionality too, which royally pisses me off.

I updated my iPad just to see if I'd like it. Problem is I wasn't able to get onto WiFi afterwards. It's a known issues with certain routers. Seems to really dislike Netgear. This is a separate from the Apple Web page issue that happened early on. I was able to fix it by flashing my router with an older firmware that allowed it to work.

I haven't done my phone but I'll probably do that in a few days. I don't really care for the 3D view. It's not something I'd use on a regular basis. The issues with the image have to do with the photo image not meshing up to the terrain map they have. It's never perfect. You run into the same issue when using a GPS and unlocking it from the roads.

A work around for Maps is to create a Bookmark though Safari. Go to maps.google.com, create a bookmark then Add to Home Screen.

I wonder if Google will be releasing a dedicated Map app for iOS...

The press makes it appear so. Google wants that information stream.

I cannot imagine Google wouldn't want to. Hell, the "new" YouTube app now has ads in it, much to the chagrin of iOS users.

Whether or not Apple will "allow" a Google Maps app is another story (don't forget the Google Voice fiasco). I'm hoping they do release it.
