Midday updates norm for iOS releases

iOS 6 should be released through iTunes and iCloud at around 10AM Pacific time, or 1PM Eastern, reports note. Apple released iOS 4 and iOS 5 at around the same hour on their respective launch days, and is likely to stick to the same schedule for the new firmware. Absinthejailbreak.org has created a chart illustrating at what time many major cities around the world should have access.

iOS 6 will be the first major iOS release available through the over-the-air upgrade system Apple introduced last year. It could potentially put a heavy strain on the company's servers, since people who would normally have to wait to get home to upgrade will be able to start their download at work or school. To update to iOS 6 when synced with a computer, people must have iTunes 10.7 installed.

    It took almost a full hour to download (~626MB) and install. The Google maps app was replaced by Apple's Maps app in my subgroup with Google Earth and Navigon. Adding the Passbook app on the first page pushed one app to the next page all by itself. Weird. The Maps app almost forces you to install Yelp!
