My iOS 6 (on iPad2) issue of the day:
I'm trying to re-download my purchased music and other than 6 tracks that the iTunes store wanted me to re-authorize by pretending to re-purchase them, it went okay except for one REALLY annoying thing. I can not get a download option for six releases from one artist that I have already purchased. The purchased tab shows the artist but tapping that just brings up the infinite spinner. If I go to the store and view those releases, none of the tracks have the download button, just the price/purchase button.
BUT if I use my iPhone 4 running iOS 5.x (jailbroken) and go to the purchased tab (where I can actually search within just the purchased, not so with iOS 6 which forces you to browse), the exact same releases show up as downloadable.
I've rebooted the iPad and have signed out and signed back in on the iPad. No joy --
