Top 5 most anticipated features of iOS 6
Apple is poised to unveil its next-generation iPhone and iPod Touch devices during its 12 September media event, but those may not be the only products showcased. The tech world fully expects iOS 6 – Apple's updated mobile operating system that was first unveiled during Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June – to launch at the event tomorrow, or shortly afterwards.
iOS 6 will be a free download, compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch (fourth generation), iPad 2, and the new iPad (third generation), but some features won’t be available on all devices due to either hardware limitations or being iPhone and iPod touch-centric. So, if you have an incompatible device, you'll either have to stick to the older operating system or upgrade to a new device.
iOS 6's overall feature set isn't quite as game-changing as iOS 5's, which introduced iCloud, iMessage, the Notification Centre, wireless syncing and more to the iOS platform. But version 6 adds numerous potentially useful features that may make the update essential if you own a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Apple's iOS 6 web page lists several features – either new or improved – that are designed to enhance your iOS experience, but we're highlighting the five that are the most attractive.
