Right, for most apps so far the limiting factor hasn't been the iOS version but hardware capability (i.e. screen resolution, amount of RAM, graphic processing capability, e.g. iPod Touch sometimes suffers on apps expecting the iPhone's amount of RAM while the former only has the half of it, all other hardware essentially being the same).

I updated as I use my iPad as a stand alone and don't have iTunes, iPhoto and all that stuff. iOS6 promised to finally allow to upload files to websites, but it appears this only works for photos and videos. Still quite some locked garden (not gonna use anything cloud, the newly introduced privacy settings are all nice to have), it's ok for reading/browsing stuff and getting quick notifications...
