Adds new Maps app, Passbook, wider Siri support
As anticipated, Apple has released the completed version of iOS 6 to the public. The firmware is available through iTunes 10.7 or as an over-the-air update, and varies in size based on the target device. For an over-the-air update, a person has to go to the General section of iOS 5's Settings app.
While Apple has advertised iOS 6 as having over 200 new features, just a handful are major. These include Facebook integration, a Panorama option in Camera, a new Passbook app for coupons and tickets, and the replacement of the original Maps app with a Google-less redesign. The iPad has finally been given a native Clock app, and in the case of the third-generation model, the first non-iPhone release of Siri. New Siri functions include app launching, movie listings, and sports scores.
