iOS 6 Software Update Ready for Download

Apple has released iOS 6 to the masses. Owners of an iDevice can download 600 megabytes packed to the brim with new features like 3D maps with turn-by-turn navigation, new Siri capabilities, Facebook integration, Shared Photo Streams, FaceTime improvements and a lot more.

Delivered as an iTunes download or over-the-air (OTA), iOS 6 is the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system powering iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch players worldwide. Not all device models are getting all the enhancements delivered in iOS 6. In fact, 2009 hardware, like the iPhone 3GS, is getting next to none of the 200+ features, including all-new Maps capabilities, a smarter Siri assistant, system-wide Facebook integration, shared Photo Streams, Photo Stream, even Phone.app improvements.

Owners of iDevices like the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 2, and iPod touch (4th generation) will not only receive the aforementioned additions, but also new ones. These include improved privacy controls for Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Photos and data shared over Bluetooth; improvements to Mail, Safari, the App Store and iTunes store; GameCenter tweaks; and new features for the Accessibility. Some less-documented (and never-before undisclosed) features are lined up below.

  • Reminders can be reordered in the Reminders app
  • Custom vibrations for alerts on iPhone
  • Clock app for iPad
  • Clock alarm with song
  • Search all fields in Contacts
  • Automatic movie mode for improved video sound quality
  • Definitions of a selected word for Chinese, French, German and Spanish
  • New keyboard layouts for French, German, Turkish, Catalan, Arabic and Icelandic
  • Keyboard shortcuts shared across devices via iCloud
  • Bluetooth MAP support
  • Global network proxy for HTTP

Chinese users are getting Baidu web search, Sina Weibo integration, the ability to share videos to Tudou and Youku, as well as improved text input for handwriting and Pinyin. The usual bag of fixes is included, as well as bunch of security patches too.
