My iPhone 4S Upgrade To iOS 6 In Pictures

The iOS 6 update for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users is here! I threw caution to the wind and dove into the upgrade. I found some problems in Apple's new mapping app and experienced a big glitch with my home Wi-Fi. Here's what happened.

A little farther to the east you can see some of the icons that Apple uses for certain types of locations. The brown graduation cap is a high school. The knife and fork are a pizza restaurant. The gas pump is supposed to be a gas station, but there is no gas station at that location. There is a gas station across the street from the pizza parlor, but Apple doesn't mark that one.

I found similar errors around my area, particularly gas stations where there are only houses. Most striking is the relative absence of markers for things that are there. Few of the restaurants I know are in my town are marked. On the map shown above, Apple does not show a large supermarket that is there. I know this sort of thing gets better over time, but right now the maps are way behind Google's.
