iOS 6 Release Date Set for September 19
Apple will release iOS 6 as a free download on September 19. The new version of the mobile operating system features a variety of new features, including Siri support on more devices, an all new Maps application with directions, FaceTime over cellular, iCloud synced Safari tabs, and a lot of subtle refinements to the core iOS experience.
iOS 6 will be compatible with the following devices: iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 3rd gen, iPad 2, and the 4th gen iPod touch, in addition to the iPhone 5 and new iPod touches, though the latter two devices will ship with iOS 6 pre-installed.
Expect to find iOS 6 as an OTA update, as well as the traditional routes of downloading through iTunes and IPSW directly from Apple.
