iOS 6

While IOS 6 has been in testing for developers for the past few months now, consumers will soon be able to get the update on their devices as well. Announced at the iPhone 5 event, Apple will release the final version of iOS 6 to the masses on September 19th. Touting over 200 new features and an updated interface for the Apple App Store and iTunes, iOS will be available to the following devices:

  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • The new iPad
  • iPad 2
  • iPod Touch 4th generation

We've already done our very own iOS 6 preview walkthrough, but we'll be diggin into it a bit more as well once it is available to the masses.

iOS 6 update arriving on September 19th


cool, i'm excited to try it. As for the overall event, i'm up to the new ipod touch and i gotta say there is a decided lack of wow factor in these events now. With so many leaks and so much ios stuff already talked about i find these things lackluster. Though again not surprised as everyone's already heard much of This but i'm wondering where is the iphone specific thing that wowed people like Garage Band. i think they maybe they simply should have held the new navigation close to the vest and use that for a big reveal today.

An awful lot of unsupported devices out there then.... I guess that means 5.1.1 is the end of the line for original iPad and older iPhones??
