The iOS 6 release date is finally upon us as Apple device users will be able to upgrade to the new software sometime tomorrow.
The company has created a page on its site that informs visitors on just about everything related to iOS 6 including what devices it is compatible with, and what new features will be available on it.
This page will also most likely list the time that iOS 6 will begin rolling out for Apple devices tomorrow. It could start as early as 8 a.m. or as late as 8 p.m. Either way, when people start upgrading, Apple's servers will be bombarded with billions of downloads from iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch users.
iOS 6 eliminates YouTube and Google Maps and brings some major upgrades to Siri including the ability to get sports game updates, launch apps, tweet, and update Facebook statuses by voice.
The software also better integrates Facebook in the same way iOS 5 does so with Twitter. iOS 6 also brings new phone app features, such as reminders to call people back, send messages instead of calling, and a DO NOT DISTURB feature that does not alert you with notifications.
FaceTime will now be available through 3G on iOS 6 and iCloud Tabs will integrate Safari across all iCloud-connected devices, allowing users to go from device to device with the same internet browsing tabs remained open on each.
Passbook will also be introduced on the new software which allows users to get all of their passes in one place, including boarding passes, tickets, and coupons.
iOS 6 will come pre-installed on the iPhone 5 and will be available as an update for other Apple products. The software will be released for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the new iPad. It will also be available on the fourth and fifth generation iPod Touch models.
