Yesterday, Apple released iOS 6, a significant update to what they call, “the world’s most modern mobile operating system.” It adds over 200 new features, including an updated maps application, real-time traffic information, and improvements to Siri, not to mention Twitter and Facebook integration.
Before you upgrade, make a backup of your iOS device and ensure that any apps you use on a regular basis are compatible with the new OS. The best way to back up is by using iTunes, which makes a complete backup of your mobile device on the computer with which you normally sync. You can review a list some of the new features before you update the software on your iOS device. Or visit www.apple.com/iOS to learn what's new in iOS 6.
