iOS 6 in 6 minutes

If you don't have time to read our definitive iOS 6 review but you still want to see all the highlights -- Maps, Siri extensions, Passbook, Guided Access, Shared Photo Streams, and more -- then here's everything you need to know about iOS 6 in just 6 minutes.

iOS 6 includes 10 major and, according to Apple, 200 new user features overall. It may not be as audacious as iPhone OS 2 was with the App Store, or iOS 5 was with iCloud, and Maps may cause some pain for some users for some time, but it does set the foundation for Apple's platform going forward.

To find out much, much more, head on over to our iOS 6 review.

iOS 6 in 6 minutes


A good summary, though IMHO you gloss over the horrible, horrible feature regressions and user-experience data quality issues, and questionable UI choices (e.g. traffic display) in Maps.

Thanks Rene great review but I do have a question I have the 4S and I just updated to ios6, is it true that the iphone 5 carrys the same features, but the difference is 4G LTE and screen size?
