I have an iPad 2 and is it worth upgrading from iOS 5.1 to 6.0 And should I wait for further stable updates?  As I have there are app compatibility and security issues on ios 6.

iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iOS 5.1

They are both about the same if you backup to iCloud or itunes.


Directly on the iPad is a little more convenient.


Whichever you choose, make sure you backup somewhere.  Either on itunes or iCloud if you have it set up.

I've had no issues with iOS 6 on my iPad 2. It works fine. no compatibility issues, no Wifi issues or anything. As for waiting, there's no guarantee the next iOS update will be applicable to the iPad 2.  Just like iOS 6 could not be applied to the iPad 1.
