As most of you know already during a significant event, Apple did not only reveal their latest smartphone wonder, the iPhone 5, but the release date when the public can finally download iOS 6 for their devices was revealed as well. In a traditional sense, with each new iPhone launched, it is accompanied with a major iOS update. And this time, it is the 6th iteration of iOS' turn to shine. It is my pleasure to announce that Apple has finally pushed the final version of iOS 6 and we have provided the direct links for your convenience.
If you are one of those lucky folks who have pre-ordered the iPhone 5 and succeeded, then all you need to do is to wait for your much-awaited package and you will get to enjoy the latest and greatest iOS as it comes prepackaged with the latest iPhone. However, for folks that are rocking other iOS devices, you will have to update your device in order to get hold of iOS 6. Perhaps the most convenient way to do it and granted that you have iOS 5 and a solid wireless connection, is to update via OTA (Over-The-Air). You can do this by simply navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
However, for those who like to keep IPSW files around, maybe for the sake of jailbreaking purposes or just for safekeeping, your best option is to download the IPSW file specific to your device. This is also ideal if you want to upgrade and do a clean restore to iOS 6. For your convenience, we have provided direct links to the iOS 6 IPSW file for each supported device at the bottom of this post. If you don't see your device in the list of download links, I am sorry to say that your device doesn't support iOS 6. The file sizes of the iOS 6 firmware can be quite significant but you can bet that it is all worth it.
With iOS 6, Apple has really worked hard in order to bring an all-new improved experience for iOS users, a feat which is anything but easy. Just to name a few, you will get to experience a whole new Maps app which features a stunning 3D view and turn-by-turn navigation. Apple's voice assistant Siri gets an upgrade as well. Facebook enthusiasts will surely love iOS 6 as the social media platform is now baked right into the system. iOS 6 has a lot more features and changes than you can shake a stick at, if you want to know more about it, you can check out our iOS 6 feature.
