On the Fence About Updating to IOS6
Submitted by Adam on Friday, September 28, 2012.
iOS & iPadOS
Since it has arrived I've been reading about all the great new features IOS6 has to offer. I've also been reading about all the little bugs in the new operating system people have posted here and on other sites. I am concerned after I upgrade from 5.1.1 which I'm happy and comfortable with, I'm going to run into many of the problems everyone is noting. I realize that with any new operating system, there is likely to be some bugs. I also know that many (including the Applevis team members & other "techies") consumers are alerting Apple to these bugs. I'm just wondering how long i (and others like me who are waiting for things to get fixed) should (and have to) wait before there is a complete update (with all kinds of bug fixes) to IOS6. I would appreciate some insight, advice and any other comments from any and all of those who would like to help me decide whether or not to get off the fence. Thanks for reading this long post and I look forward to what people have to say.
I've read the entire bug list thread. To be honest, most of the "bugs" I keep reading or hearing about are things I have not encountered since I updated. The only thing I encountered is the fact that voiceover has lost focus a couple of times, but that wasn't really too big of a deal. Some people have stated that they're graphic labels don't work properly. I don't have any graphic labels, so I can't verify this one. The decision is really up to you, but I honestly don't see any real good reasons not to upgrade. I love IOS 6; I think it's Apple's best IOS yet.
On a site like this you're gonna get a lot of different results on things. Some folks have iPhones, some have iPads, and some have iPods. I've learned that not all apple products are created equal. While i've noticed a few extremely small annoyances in iOS 6, nothing has been an absolute show stopper for me. The only way you're going to find out is to upgrade, I don't see any reason why not. Just remember if you have any trouble, you can always post questions here, that's why the site exists.
I appreciate the insight & advice. Thank you.
I appreciate your response & hear what you are saying. I'm going to see what other (if any) responses are posted before making any decisions. Have a good one.
