iOS 6 - For iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

Updated on October 3, 2012

Apple's iOS6 - Have you updated yet?

Apple has released its latest version of the iOS software that runs the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad Devices. If you own any of these devices, you are likely wondering if and when you should update you software. Not sure on how to update your device? Dont worry, I will walk you through the update process bellow. I have both my iPod Touch (4th Generation) and my iPhone 4S updated and am quite happy with the added features on the iOS6.

Thank You iPhone 5 for brining us a new iOS!

With Apple's release of the iPhone 5, they have also released a new version of their iOS software, iOS 6. There are quite a few updates to this new software - according to Apple there are over 200 new features.

The features that are most exciting to me are the voice navigation feature and the updates to Siri's functioning. I have been wanting Siri to open apps for me for a while now, and now she can. Also, Siri can post to your facebook. Another facebook upgrade is within the Camera Roll - You can now share your photos to facebook without having to switch over to the facebook app. Finally!

Facetime can now be used over a cellular signal, so when you are out of Wi-Fi you can still get your facetime calls. I really could have used that feature a few months ago!

iPad users can finally get access to Siri with the latest update to iOS 6. Unfortunately, the older iPads still won't have Siri access. My husband may be in the market to upgrade his iPad 2 to the newest version since this became available. We originally opted for the iPad 2 due to the fact that the Retina display didn't in itself seem to warrant the extra money. Now with Siri access we may change our minds!
