Just a short one lads. I'm kinda excited about download iOS 6 on my 4s. I know it's to be released tomorrow but anybody know what time in Ireland the update will be available?

It is good to get a few changes. Maybe people with a 4S will appreciate it a bit more with Siri updates and the panoramic camera etc (I think thats on the 4S) but people on the 4 wont notice much difference. Ive had it for about 2 months now (on iPhone 4). Nothing major at all.

Remember IOS 5? Mayhem.

I think it was so bad because iMessage and that was coming. Everyone wanted to have it. Will people be falling over themselves to get IOS6?

I already regret upgrading & losing Google Maps. That may put others off.

The Gold Master version is out now if you don't want to wait until tomorrow. Normally identical to official release.

I think my favourite new feature is Do not disturb.

Interesting points being made here as to what we'll gain and lose. I'm a big fan of Sparow Mail. Unfortunately it doesn't have Push and the fix is only via Cydia, so unless Mail has some big improvements I may hold off. I use Siri a lot for texts, calendar and calls so it'll be interesting to see if there's any localisation in ios6.

Will be waiting for the Google Maps App. Not going to risk the new apple maps.

iOS 5 was actually release before 6pm. So we'll have it earlier in the day. It would be nice if they released it tonight but I doubt it
