[iPad] Updating to iOS 6.1 or 6.1.2

Any problems for folks updating their iPads or iPad minis to iOS 6.1 or 6.1.2 from 6.0.1?

I ask after reading all the issues effecting (primarily iPhones) with battery drain.

I've procrastinated till now but have some concern due to the security issues addressed in the updates.

Not me...iPad Mini...the security issue has to do with the jailbreak, so if you didn't do it, you lost your chance. I'm not updating to 6.1.2.

It's possible to jailbreak 6.1.2:

Apple hasn't bothered with the jb yet. They most likely will push out a "security" update for 6.1.4 to patch it. The passcode shit is srs business.

6.1 was a battery killer on my iPhone 4... 6.1.2 hasn't seemed to help much - I finally blew up the phone (factory reset) and reloaded last night, too soon to tell if that's fixed it or not.

As for my iPad (the 'old' 'new' iPad - the first one with Retina) - 6.1 didn't seem to bother it in the slightest... No concerns - battery life still seems excellent, no app issues.

Well..I've updated my iPad 3 to 6.1.2. Monitoring for issues..so far so good. Haven't updated the mini yet. Thanks for the fdbk.

Just updated to 6.1.2
First impression, iPad seems a little bit hesitating, not as fluently as it used to be in 6.1.
But... It's only an impression. Though it is enough for me to avoid updating my iPhone. I will not use Exchange anyway.
