iOS 6 update coming to your iPhone, iPad, iPod 19 September
iOS 6 is coming to your iPhone 5, iPad or iPod touch on 19 September, with new Apple Maps, Facebook features and more.
iOS 6 brings with it a new phone app, a Passbook app to store tickets and passes, FaceTime over 3G, iCloud features in Safari, and Apple's own Maps app replacing Google Maps. Press play on our video below to see the new software in action:
The update to iOS 6 is available on 19 September. It's great that updates are so readily available, and available to everyone across the board -- take note, Android -- but we suggest you don't rush to your computer next Wednesday to update. If previous updates are anything to go by, everyone will try and download it, then wonder why it's taking so long. And by wonder why it's taking so long, we mean complain about it incessantly on Twitter.
No, our advice is to wait a day or so and save yourself the headache of a clogged-up update, as well as giving the early adopters a chance to struggle with any bugs.
The new iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch will come with iOS 6 built-in when they hit shops in October.
