Apples next major update to the iPhone mobile operating system iOS 6 is due out today.  iOS 6 supports the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 , iPhone 4S , iPhone 5.  Apples iPhone 5 will hit stores on Sept 21st.  The iOS 6 also supports the iPad 2, the new third-generation iPad and the fourth-gen iPod Touch.

The iOS 6 will be released sometime around 10 a.m. Pacific time, or 1:00 p.m. Eastern, but perhaps earlier.  Apple has confirmed that the operating system will indeed launch today.  So now it’s just a matter of watching and waiting for an alert on your device telling you the OS is ready to be pushed across.

One of the key additions to iOS 6 is a mapping app.  Apple is getting rid of Google Maps which is a big loss for Google.  The update will also have an improved Siri.  Another notable change is the ability to conduct Facetime video chats over a 3G cellular network.  Facetime over 3G has brought up discussion about its impact on metered data plans.

The new iOS 6 is said to have 200 new features including tighter Facebook integration, more phone-answering options Apples own Passbook app for storing boarding passes, movie tickets, and other location-based items.  Passbook apps are not new but defiantly being built into the iOS is something new for Apple.

Being an iPhone owner and user I have been looking forward to this update and plan to upgrade my phone OS in the next few days.
