    Yeah I did. Mostly just to un-jailbreak. It's a company phone, and for some reason they thought I was pissing myself wanting a 5.

    So mine goes to some poor schmo and I get to hunt for another case that can tolerate how I treat phones.

    The extent of what I've noticed so far.... The number keys in the phone part show up white. :lol3

    I see that there is a push available for iOS 6.1. Anybody tried it?
    I've come to be pretty cautious about some of Apple's updates after shenanigans like turning on the tracking feature without announcing it.

    You mean, 6.0.1. It fixes some of the bugs with 6.0. Otherwise nothing to really be excited about.

    I updated my phone last weekend. Haven't noticed anything different yet.

    I updated my iPad 3 and my wife's iPhone 4S and neither seem any different. I didn't notice anything. Supposedly, Maps will be updated in the 6.1 release, but I have no idea when that will be.

    The actual issue with maps doesn't appear to reside in your phone. It is in the underlying data that is 'streamed' onto your device as you request it.

    One source that I read today states that maps won't be improved in the upgrade but it will be easier to report problems with the maps.
    It sounds like Apple is using crowd sourcing to build their map app.

    I wonder if Apple is adding/improving existing functionality of the app itself... I'm not sure where the story came from last week, but it was said there is an improvement coming. They could stream map updates on-the-fly if that was all that was wrong.

    It works for Waze :)

    I upgraded to 6 last week and I had some issues with iBook. When I opened a textbook it locked and wouldn't return to the library for love or money. I eventually had to delete and re-install. Looking at the reviews for new iBook, it sounds like a major conflict and Apple isn't in a hurry to fix them.
