Top 10 most read: Apple iOS 6 review and Samsung updates

It's no surprise that in the week in which Apple was forced into a rare public apology over its embarrassing Maps app, our review of the iOS 6 operating system upgrade was the most read, as readers wondered if it worth upgrading at all.

In our view, it is, although the Maps issues is undoubtedly a problem, but there are ways around this, as Tim Cook himself noted, through the use of rival services such as Google Maps pinned to your home page, or services such as Waze based on Google's tool.

Elsewhere Samsung underlined its popularity among V3 readers, with numerous reviews and news stories generating interest, including our Galaxy Tab 2 review, the promise of Jelly Bean for Galaxy S3 users and our revelations the S Duos smartphone will not arrive in the UK.

In a phone dominated week, the iPhone 5 and Motorola Razr I reviews also made it in to the top 10, while Nokia's European launch prices for the Lumia 920 and 820 devices also proved of interested.

However, it wouldn't be a most read without a security story, and the news the US bank Wells Fargo was hit by a cyber attack, despite warnings to the industry to expect such a threat, was of interest too.
