My daughter updated my iPhone to ios6 by mistake. I had been holding back from upgrading as I don't want to lose Google Maps. Could someone tell me how to go back to ios5? Thanks.

    You can't.

     

    It also isn't possible to update "by mistake" - she must've purposefully gone through a number of steps, and confirmed the actions at a number of points before the update occurs.

    Is it possible to downgrade using shift+restore in iTunes after having downloaded the 5.1.1 software?

     

    Have you tried it...?

     

    If so... what happens...?

    Sorry braisim. - as has been said by AnaMusic there is no way to downgrade unfortunately.

     

    There have been a number of threads in this forum about this, i would link you to one in particular which would answer many of the questions you and others have had but apple saw fit to delete it because... well because they did. Someone will come along and tell you it was because it became a whining thread - I believe it's because apple and many here want people like you to think you are alone and being unreasonable.

     

    Google will be along soon with a new app we hope

     

    For now try the Nokia map app called "here" - its not as good but certainly much better in function and accuracy than apple maps

     

    Good luck
