Re: iOS 6 Release Time

iTunes on my MBP says 5.1.1 is the most current. I was hoping to DL on the laptop while I went out to lunch.

Mine said it was there....said download and update, then it did nothing. Check again and it says no update, 5.1.1 is current. WTF?

Damn it says I need 2.7GB of available storage in order to update,……

Is that for OTA updates only or could I get away with less free space if it were through iTunes,….?

I only have 1.1GB free, not sure where I would get the other 1.6GB,….

I started deleting apps. You can always put them back on.

I had to delete some apps too. Was surprised to see how much space some of them were using up!

Its cool you can see the usage of this from the settings in the iphone but would like to see this through the itunes interface too (maybe its there and I missed it, never had a need to look).

Installing ios6 now.

I'm confused. After all my complaining that the new iTunes wasn't compatible with PowerPC old iTunes 10.6.3 is now downloading it. I hope this goes well.

The first time I checked my new iPad only had ~600MB free. I ended up deleting most of my photos since I knew they were already on my Mac and server. That got me to 1.1GB but I wasn’t willing to do much more then that.

So I plugged it into iTunes,….

Crossed my fingers and toes (legs, arms and eyes too,…..really hard to type this post this way,… ) and started to update to iOS 6,…..

Wish me luck!

I just updated my 4s using the older 10.6.3. It is annoying going though start up steps.

iPhone is updated. Although it's physically connected to the computer, it no longer appears as a device in iTunes 10.6.3

All finished. Annoyingly, it made me go to my PC to update my Apple store password before the startup setup would let me go forward.

So far everything OK. Beginning to check out Siri on iPad, which wasn't avail before. And the new maps.

OK, done and iOS 6 is installed.

However, the Walking Dead App has none of my in app book purchases. I bought issues 101, 100, 99, 98, 97 and I think 96. I just bought issue 102 when I noticed none of the previous purchases show-up in the app. There is no option to re-download them only buy.

Not sure what else is wrong,….

I had Siri turned off since it was useless. I turned it on to try it out now. All I get is:

You can start using Siri soon.
Siri is adding new users every day. You will receive an alert when you can start using Siri.

Huh?

I -- REALLY -- hate the blue background color now shown in setup and in the messaging app.

Also -- is Google Maps available as a separate download? I couldn't find it but would like to keep it handy.

Not that I could find in app store. The closest is Google Earth, which also has maps.

Gruber brought up an interesting point about Maps. What if Google refuses to release an iOS maps app to show that Apple Maps sucks in comparison?

The traffic functionality of the new maps app sucks in comparison. Good thing I have the Beat the Traffic App.

I had the same situation. I deleted facebook (seeing as I was getting it back anyway), books I didn't read and probably wouldn't (bye bye Yellow Submarine) and all those free songs just to test my music player. After that I had the necessary space with room to spare.

Q: Of all the tunes I had (deleted) on my phone, are they on my cloud or are they gone (Jim)?
