What's new in iOS 6?

Ok so there's no iPhone5 coming soon. "They seek him here, they seek him there ...". But there's new iOS 6 and it's got some very useful features.

  • Maps from TomTom give us turn-by-turn navigation, 3D flyover, but no street-view.
  • Siri can give us game scores, summaries and player stats, tweet our messages, understand 15 languages (but not Swedish), and become the next hands-free solution for some new cars. 
  • Facebook integration with contacts sync and calendar sync. Twitter was already integrated in iOS5.
  • You can now send a predefined SMS when you can't take an incoming call. Very nice feature.
  • Passbook can keep your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons and loyalty cards. Passbook will alert you if your gate number changes. Great feature when gate numbers change at short notice and many of us know they do!!
  • Facetime is now available on mobile (cellular) networks.
  • Mail has been improved, but I think it was great already. Same thing with Safari browser.
  • These devices are compatible with iOS 6:
    • Iphone 3GS, 4 and 4S. 
    • iPod touch generation 4. 
    • iPad 2 and 3.
  • Support for iPad1 has been dropped, which is sad.
UPDATE:
