Yes, I swear my battery runs out faster!
RCC, has Google submitted their maps app already? It wasn't available last I checked.

I have an iphone 4 and none of the updates are enticing for me and on top of that I depend fairly heavily in Google Maps. I know there are some people that have had no problem with the new maps but I am taking no chances right now. To be honest, my next phone probably won't be an iphone.

My dad has a 4s and after his update, he has noticed his camera flash is acting wonky. Everytime flash is on, it completely floods the entire picture. I searched online and couldn't find any other similar occurrences. He uses his phone camera a lot so he's fairly upset about it.

Auto-correct in my texts seems to work slightly better for me now. Siri seems to be quicker to type texts for me also, and she gets them pretty accurate usually.

I don't love the new Maps app. I don't like how I can't look ahead on the map, or look ahead with the written instructions on the top of the screen either. MapQuest lets me do both of these, so I think I may stick with MQ until Apple tweaks that map app.

I have a 4s and it seems the battery life is shorter. Maybe it's just my year old battery?

Ah, okay. I do use Google Maps through safari, but I was wondering what you were using that you liked!

Well, I do like the voice turn by turn of the Apple one. I've been using it for routine places that I know, and it's been fine. I just miss my transit option!

You can download YouTube and Google maps for free from the App Store.
But someone said its not the same. The layout and format is diff so I still haven't updated my software. You can't miss what you've never had so I'll keep my old version but thank you anyways Curls!!

Same for me re battery and autocorrect

This is for more than the new OS but I found some stuff I was not aware. I can use my volume button for a shutter button for the camera for one. Love it.

I don't think that's part of the new update, but certainly one of m favorite things about the phone!

Yah, I think it was for OS5 actually but the ones I was interested in still work on the new OS.

I personally haven't encountered any downside to the new update. I have the 4.

It's getting old. I did 3 posts here and took a quick phone call. My battery went from 100% to 75%, in matter of minutes. It's also dropping from 100% to 50% in a few hours, when not in use and when no apps are running. My battery is older, but it was not draining like this before.
