Is iOS6 WORTH it, because I don't have it yet

Forum
Accessibility Advocacy
Unlike many who have an iPhone, I have not yet updated to iOS6. The reason being because Apple would mess with the settings and apps currently installed like the native youtube app that has been there ever since the first iPod touch and iPhone sold. I know there are some good things that iOS6 offers if one has a 4s or later like a better siri, a maps app that will actually give you turn by turn navigation and zoom with voice over integration. As well as for some an unwanted face book app. I'm having trouble deciding whether or not I should install this update. Please tell me the possitives and negatives you have expeerienced with the 4s. I have previously read on this site that some of you have been saying that the app store and new youtube app have been unaccessible to an extent. To this day is anyone experiencing problems with iOS6 and its native apps? Does anyone know how we as users can help in order to make the youtube app and other apps accessible? If so please post links as to how to contact google for the youtube app, and how to proceed with the accesibility form and the same with apple's native apps. If anyone has already contacted google about youtube, has there been any feedback from the developers, or change in the app?

Hi. Personally I'm pretty much happy with updating. I didn't really use the Youtube app, and if it were up to me I would've completely done away with that and the stocks app. The only thing you might find frustrating is that whenyou start a new mesage typingon the touch screen is incredibly slow. It drives me crazy and I'm sure others as well. If you decide to update, enjoy Syri andother things that I with a four don't have. Good luck.

I'm very glad I upgraded to iOs 6. Are there bugs? Sure. However, I find that the new features far outweigh the bugs I found. I sure don't miss the bug in iOs 5 where VoiceOver stopped talking and I had to let my phone sit for a few minutes before it came back. The app store is very accessible, just different from the one in iOs 5. I like the changes to VoiceOver and the changes that came with iOs 6. I love having the ability to ask Siri about sports, getting directions, or getting phone numbers that aren't in my contacts. Getting phone numbers is something that was possible in iOs 5, but it seems easier in iOs 6. I haven't regretted upgrading my iPhone 4s one bit and wouldn't go back to iOs 5.

Hi Chris. The only time I find typing slow is when I'm on a new message. Also, has anyone noticed that it's way to easy to be in the wrong window without knowing it? :) I'm willing to admit to some error on my part, but I swear this didn't happen in IOS 5 Anyway I'll only have a problem when I'm composing a message, replying I type as fast as normal.
