“iOS 6 arrives today, and eager users everywhere are getting ready to upgrade their devices,” Dan Frakes and Serenity Caldwel report for Macworld.

“If you’re concerned about the upgrade process, or simply want to know all your setup options before making the big switch, let us help you upgrade your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to iOS 6 with this step-by-step guide,” Frakes and Caldwel report. “Before we get into the upgrade process itself, you’ll want to make sure you actually have a compatible device.”

  1. My wife’s iPhone 4S came yesterday afternoon. We have been trying to activate it, no luck. 18 hours later and 8 hours on the phone with AT&T and Apple, the old iPhone is de-activated and the new iPhone remains unable to be activated. WTH.

  2. God, how I love iOS updates. Mac will die in… 5 years? I hope so. Move on Apple. iOS 6 wasn’t a big jump. :/ We need a Xcode for iPad… My MacBook air is away too obsolete and heavy… I hate keyboards….

    1. I feel the opposite, while I enjoy using my mobile apple devices, when compared to an actually mac they are nothing and I for one hope that the Mac sticks around for much longer (chances are it will 🙂 )

    2. I love both and hope very soon to have a much LARGER interaction surface to that I can incorporate two-handed gestures into OS X that provide more room than an iPad currently can.
