I've downloaded IOS6 on my iPad 2, Maps is rubbish, no street view , no Siri, can't see what the 200 new features are, totally unimpressed.
Classic Apple froth and bollocks.

people starting to realise how much they BS. The 200 new features are the same thing updated basically. Most of which are hidden in the running of the OS.

Maps is a total step backwards IMO. + the OS does feel slower!. Im shure they do it on everything but the newest device (iPhone5) to make everything else slower.

Messages and FaceTime on my MacBook can now receive messages/calls sent to my phone number! I've been waiting for this since I first installed Messages Beta months ago... probably the only iOS6 feature I'll use

The loss of Google Maps is the big deal here. No StreetView, which is actually really useful, and instead Flyover Maps, which are a gimmick. No turn by turn navigation got the wifi only iPads, no option to download mapping so that navigation works offline.

There isn't much to compensate for the loss of Google Maps. Passbook is thoroughly useless. Facebook integration is okay but nothing to jump up and down about. Siri is alright but voice control is something of a gimmick. The rest of the stuff is just tweaking of existing functions.

Disappointing really.

Has anyone else noticed wifi isn't working - If you try to join a wifi network you are re-routed to apple.com which then comes up with an error and drops your wifi connection!

Can't use my device since the upgrade.. Useless!!!!!!

Same problem here! It's just going to the Apple website... Very strange and annoying!

Maps is not as good, no bus times anymore

It's all a bit disappointing.

Can you please tell me how you hide them ?

Thanx

Same issue here with wifi. keeps redirecting to a log in page on apple site that then comes up with an error message. Really not impressed at all. Apple need to learn not to release updates with errors!

Considering Apple have such a limited amount of devices to work on this is shocking!

Seems like the worst iOS update to date by far.

It is the first major update whilst in a declared war.

Staff will have been under intense pressure to get those alternative maps working they simply took their eyes off the ball.

It happens.

I think i've worked it out.
Since version 4 I beleive, open networks always loaded http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html and looked for the word Success.
With iOS 6 it does this for encrypted networks aswell and since the page failed iDevices assumed that a login was requred because it couldn't see the word Success.

What worries me is that it might have gone down due to volume of traffic which could result in this happening often.

Onavo is giving me problems aswell since it loads the login page using cell data not wifi and therefore I will have to uninstall it to use wifi.

OK, info on the WiFi COCK UP:

Temporary fix found via Twitter (it worked for me):

https://twitter.com/MatthewWebbUK

#ios6 WiFi fix is: settings > wifi > blue arrow on your router in the list > set http to auto instead of off.

Background:

https://discussions.apple.com/thread...rt=90&tstart=0

Here is what is going on. Ever since iOS 4(?) there has been a feature where if you connect to a WiFi network it will try to ping this site:http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html

If it is a success then it lets you connect, if it is not a success the phone trys to bring up what would be a Login page for corporate wifi networks. Example, public access points that have a login page, etc.

It seems that some moron at Apple deleted the file located at http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html and that is why it is not working.

This is not an iOS 6 issue but rather a problem with Apple's website.

Rebooting your phone will not help, nothing will help until Apple fixes the problem on their end.

Apparently Apple has fixed it by putting the page back.

Maps is terribly sluggish on my iPad 3 when scrolling at certain zoom levels, in a way that Google Maps never used to be.

That sounds like a terrible idea.
