Tons of people complaining about iOS 6 issues after upgrading. I personally have not experienced any problems with either of my devices, but then again, I didn't do the upgrade the usual way. By that I mean I didn't download the upgrade to install it on top of the already iOS 5.1.1 I had. Instead, I did this below. I posted this on the Apple forums:

Guys I might have a solution to all your problems.

It is always best to install a new OS from scratch. Doing an "upgrade" is not always the best thing to do and this is what I have learned over the years when updating my iPhone and iPad:

1. Back up ALL your stuff to your Mac or PC (documents, photos, etc).
2. Reset the iPad or iPhone. Chose the option to delete everything. A complete, factory reset.
3. Once the device resets and the OS comes back then do the upgrade to iOS6.

That is how I did it and I have not had a single issue with WIFi, battery life or anything anywhere near close to what's being reported in this forum.

Good luck!

Please let me know if this worked for you as well. It did for me.

I'm not having trouble connecting to the App Store, but what I'm seeing there is garbage, apps have gone missing and I'm seeing lots of foreign apps...

I don't get where these so-called problems are coming from. What the hell are people doing to their devices that they are having so many issues? I upgraded just fine and have yet to see any of these issues on my 4S and iPad 3. Everything is working like a charm.

Most useful, a link would've been nice though


Sorry but I am viewing both This Website and their Website on my IPhone 4S right now as I do NOT have an available Internet Connection for either Windows 8 (2 out of my 3 PC's), Windows Server 2012 (my 3rd PC), and my Mac (Mid Year 2010 Mac Mini running 10.8.2) right now as I am waiting for my Verizon Wireless 551L 4G LTE USB Modem to be Compatible with Windows 8 as I am currently unable to get it to work with Mountain Lion, therefore I am unable to provide an Exact Link to the story. The Story is on their IOS News Page (Scroll Down)! :-)

My IPhone 4S is finally Downloading stuff from the IOS App Store as normal. It seems that the problem was due to Overloaded Apple Servers and NOT IOS 6.0. At least for now it appears that Mac Rumors was Incorrect about IOS 6 being the cause.

I used the Upgrade Option on my Mom IPhone 4 and so far she is not complaining about the results. She did have trouble accessing the IOS App Store Wednesday Night but we all ready know that it was Apple's Problem because she was connected to WIFI at the time, NOT 3G.

Go to Settings>General>Date and Time>Set Automatically>Off. Set the date one year ahead. Try to [update the apps again or press the button from Passbook]. If you get an error message, go back to the settings. Correct the date and time (set automatically) then go back and try [again].
