CNET UK reader Kyle Cartmill is impressed: "Like the VIP in mail, Also the 'can't answer call' text message idea, Siri is great now too, I asked it 'who is the top goal scorer in the league?' and it came back with the correct answer."It's not just features added to iOS 6, Jamie Lawrence is hopeful: "Battery seems better now?

And another commenter reckons they've spotted a "crack in Apple's armour? Check out the updated Find My iPhone app, Totally different look, font and feel to any other Apple app, In fact looks a throwback to the eighties!"The size of the download also causes concern, Lily Powell says, "Tried to download iOS 6 onto lunar pattern: blue moon iphone case my 4th gen iPod touch, but couldn't because I had to have at least 2.3GB of available storage! I will not be deleting any of my music in order to update!"But the big bugbear is the much-vaunted new Maps app, Apple's own-brand cartographic app, powered by TomTom location data, replaces Google Maps -- but it's far from perfect, Reader Luke White points out, "Maps isn't complete yet but looks good, It's an improvement, Not massive but better."Not everyone is so charitable, however, James Braithwaite reports, "Satellite view on Maps is awful, Zoom feature is very poor as is the picture quality."

Suraj Sharma sums things up -- he's "hating the new App Store and Maps app.. they are kinda useless now it's hard to find stuff.

It's hardly an Earth-shattering update, but it's certainly a handy feature that I personally could have done with numerous times over the years, rather than scrawling an address down on a Post-It note that I inevitably lose. This new maps feature comes exactly at the time when Apple is taking some serious heat about its new Maps software in iOS 6. In the latest update to its iPhone operating system, Apple removed Google's Maps and replaced it with its own version. While it looks pretty and has a couple of neat features like viewing buildings in 3D, it seems to be lacking when it comes to local data and address search. We're furiously testing the new software, so keep it CNET UK for the verdict, but it certainly appears for now that Apple has taken a few steps back.
