What is iOS 6.0?

By

The iOS 6.0 update for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch contains over 200 features and bug updates, including a number of great new features like Facebook integration and an improved Siri. But early impressions of the update haven't been entirely positive, with some reviewers bashing the new Maps application and the updated App Store.

Included among the enhancements iOS brings to the iPad is Siri, which received a host of improvements that make it just as useful in the home as on the road. Now Siri can help by checking out sports scores, launching apps, finding nearby movies, checking restaurant reviews and even booking reservations for your favorite restaurant. Siri is only compatible with the iPad 3 and newer iPads, including the iPad Mini.

iOS 6 also includes a new Maps app, Facebook integration and a redesigned App Store.
