Most Apple users avoiding iOS 6 upgrade

Iphone 2

Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "More than 100 million users have upgraded to the new iOS 6, the software powering the company’s iGizmos, Apple said last week. But according to analysts at data research firm Strategy Analytics, 173 million iPhone users, 85 million iPad users, and 25 million iPod touch users are eligible for the upgrade — -- 283 million in all. Which means 183 million have said “no thanks.” Consumers may be skipping the upgrade for a range of reasons, explained Ross Rubin, principal analyst with Reticle Research. “They could be in contract for a phone that can't update to iOS 6 or have a model that can't take advantage of some key features and therefore choose to hold off,” he told FoxNews.com. “Or they could have heard of the problems with the Maps application and choose to hold off until it improves.”"

Or maybe they're afraid it'll screw up their phone (1)

Like it did to my wife's, which at the last step asks you to "connect to iTunes", and then after the subsequent sync was stuck on the "connected to iTunes" screen without a button to move forward...

No Google maps, no upgrade (1)

Two iPhones and an iPod touch are eligible for iOS 6 but my iPad 1 is left in the cold. The lack of Google maps in iOS 6 is a deal breaker anyway so all are staying on iOS 5.1.1 for the moment.
