Jury is out on the new maps.  The satellite images are newer than what is on Bing or Google though.

Siri is noticeably better than it was previously. I was able to ask “Where’s a good Pizza place around here?” and it got me a list.  I asked it “Are there any new Bruce Willis movies out?” to which it found the Expendables and The Cold Light of Day and where they’re showing.

I haven’t noticed anything else.  I saw Passbook (the new app) but can’t tell you if it does anything useful other than in theory.

The full change log can be found here.

Waiting on jailbreak. Can't live within the narrowly confined corridors of the iOS UI on iPhone.

the panoramic camera is just cool as hell for starters. Photo Stream is nice.. 

Like you, still digging around in it though.

I like the maps in iOS6, not sure what everyone is complaining about.

I'm on the fence about them on my iPad3....when zoomed in they are not as clear as google maps and not quite as accurate when searching for a location. I do like the 3d view though.

Kinda wish they would have added the panoramic camera for the iPad3 but there's a few apps out for this already any way.

Can't really see any reason to bump to iOS6.  Or to iPhone5, for that matter, at least before my iPhone4 breaks, anyway.  May replace my wife's iPhone3G with a Samsung Galaxy S III, maybe HTC One X.
