Technology giant Apple unveiled its new mobile operating system, iOS 6, at the 23rd annual developers’ conference WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) in San Francisco.The new OS will be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users as a free software update, in September this year.

One of the interesting features in iOS 6 is the new ‘Apple Maps’ in place of Google maps. The new Maps feature comes with voice navigation, real time traffic update and a feature called Flyover, that would provide photo-realistic interactive 3D views of places.

Apple has also integrated Facebook to the iOS 6. Users can post directly from Notification Center, Siri and Facebook-enabled apps like Photos, Safari and Maps, and Shared Photo Streams via iCloud.

There is also a new app called ‘Passbook’ allows users to store all their passes, including boarding passes, tickets, store passes etc. in one place. For instance, users can store event tickets bought online in the app and, and when they arrive at the place, their phone’s GPS would sense that they’ve arrived, and load their ticket to the lock screen automatically.

“iOS 6 continues the rapid pace of innovation that is helping Apple reinvent the phone and create the iPad category, delivering the best mobile experience available on any device. We can’t wait for hundreds of millions of iOS users to experience the incredible new features in iOS 6 including the new Maps app, expanded Siri support, deep Facebook integration, Shared Photo Streams and the innovative new Passbook app,” said Scott Forstall, Apple’s senior vice-president of iOS Software, during the launch of iOS6.
