Well there doesn't seem to be much of anything fixed on this update. I guess we'll have to wait for iOS 6.1 to see any serious fixes, especially to Maps.

Thank Gawd. iOS 6 made my iPod touch (4th gen) slow as hell and it always forgets wifi connections. [s]Can we get a change log?[/s]

Edit: ^ There's my change log. Thank you :)

Seems to work well on my iPhone 4S. Not sure if it made any impact on performance though.

The question on every iOS update... how's the battery? And has the battery life improved?

My iPod Touch (4th Gen) seems much more snappier and my wifi connections are finally being remembered. I also haven't experienced the App Sore or iTunes apps crashing on me since installing the update.

I was having the issue with the app store and had the lines all on the keyboard at times on my 5.

This fixed this for me.

I've got something better than 6.0.1! I've got 6.1.0 Beta 1 (ADP Build)!

P.S. ADP = Apple Developer Program.

How does it feel compared to 5.1.1? Any idea how RAM usage compares? I'm reluctant to update as everything is fine here, but just curious.

This is good news. A friend of mine has been wanting an iPhone5 but he was waiting until some of the issues were fixed.

Seems a tad smoother than 6.0. On iOS 6 the App Store app for the fourth-gen iPod touch was almost unusable. My phone's remaining on 5.1.1 until there's a newer jailbreak.

It's actually quite comparable to iOS 5.1.1. It's a ton better than the vanilla iOS 6. I haven't had anything crash on me or slow down, and I'm sure iOS 6.1.0 (not to be confused with the current 6.0.1) will have a lot more fixes and improvements. If I were you, I wouldn't do the over the air update. It's one of my pet peeves---I hate updates, as it leaves a lot of leftover garbage behind with the possibility of wonky bugs, glitches and slowdowns. Download the .ipsw from a website for your particular device and do a clean install.

Thanks for the tip. My 4G came with 5.0.1 installed and I updated it OTA each time. I might try doing a clean install of 5.1.1 and restore from backup just to see if there's any noticable difference. Then I'll be familiar with the process if I take the plunge and go to 6.

Well, that didn't work. I made sure to download the correct version of the iPod software (build number also matched what is currently installed) but iTunes refuses to restore it. I tried the [url="https://support.apple.com/kb/TS3694"]troubleshooting guide[/url] on Apple but can't see anything there I could try.

here's a snippet from the updater log:
[CODE]
amai: tss_submit_job: error from server=94 (This device isn't eligible for the requested build.)
[/CODE]

It's because Apple have disabled updating/downgrading to 5.x via iTunes once 6.0 was released.
