1. Maps: The new and updated version of Maps is so much fun and better than ever, it re-imagined how you see the whole map and the state of 50 continents, and explore cities with flyover you can search on any type of city like “Sydney, Australia”, and you can see the detail image of the building that is being seen in 3D as you zoom, pan, tilt, and rotate around the city and its landmarks. Turn by Turn directions gives you an insight look on route and a voiceover to know where you are going to, just type in your address and choose your route and follow the locations as you follow along but as you see traffic conditions coming your way, Maps offers alternative routes. Alternate side in parking effect with traffic signals you can see accidents, alerts and under construction, on your iOS device and also with standard, satellite and hybrid view as you see 3D buildings through your very eyes.
2. Siri: One of my favorite components to the iOS operating system, that has both dictation and can ask you for everything you ask for, for sports, restaurants and movies, apps, locations you name it, you can ask questions like for example “How did the 49ers do last weekend?”, “Play Angry Birds”, Call a name for a stock and so much more, and for facebook and twitter integration
ask siri to post something on your wall or tweet something for you, that you can always listen to your ears, Siri is available for iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad (3rd generation), and iPod touch (5th generation).
3. Facebook: The world’s largest social networking platform, combine with the great iOS operating system, that allows you to share your favorite websites, like apps and songs from the appstore and iTunes, seeing contacts for people who have facebook and their birthdays coming up and other events to the calendar.
4. Shared Photo Streams: On the photos app, you can share the photos you want select the photos you want to share and name the photo of your album, as you can see the photos on Apple TV, or a Mac that is running on Mountain Lion, you can comment on other people shared photos as they get notified of someone liking their photos, and with a touch of a button you can see your photos on the iCloud website.
5. Passbook: Your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, loyalty cards, and more are now all in one place. With Passbook, you can scan your iPhone or iPod touch to check in for a flight, get into a movie, and redeem a coupon. You can also see when your coupons expire, where your concert seats are, and the balance left on that all-important coffee bar card. Wake your iPhone or iPod touch, and passes appear on your Lock screen at the appropriate time and place — like when you reach the airport or walk into the store to redeem your gift card or coupon. And if your gate changes after you’ve checked in for your flight, Passbook will even alert you to make sure you’re not relaxing in the wrong terminal.
6. Facetime: With facetime in the palm of your hands, you can make video calls to someone like your friends, grandparents and so many others, but anyway since that facetime runs on Wi-Fi, it also runs on cellular wireless as well, so you can talk to your people anywhere around the world.

VoiceOver, the revolutionary screen reader for blind and low-vision users, is now integrated with Maps, Assistive Touch, and Zoom.
iOS 6 supports many of the iOS devices
The new iPad
iPod touch (4th & 5th generation)
iPhone 5 will be release on Friday, iPod Touch 5th Generation will be release this fall despite all the rumors about whether the new iPod Touch (5th Generation) will be coming out, but I think that this mobile software will be so much better than iOS 5, and with a lot of competition of so many operating software, this could be one of the best mobile operating system yet all over the world.
