Apple’s Phil Schiller confirmed during the iPhone 5 event yesterday that iOS 6, “the world’s most advanced mobile operating system,” would be publicly available to download on September 19.

Tim Cook & Co. unveiled two devices that run iOS 6, the new iPhone 5 and the fifth-generation iPod touch. Both will ship in October, but the new software will be available to the masses a bit earlier – in a week from now.

iOS 6 brings a reported 200 new user features, including the new Maps application with Apple-designed cartography, turn-by-turn navigation and the 3D Flyover view; Facebook integration, including the ability to post directly from Notification Center; the new Passbook app which keeps all your passes in one place; an enhanced Siri with new language support, access to sports scores, restaurant recommendations and movie listings, and integration with apps like Photos, Safari and Maps; and Shared Photo Streams.

Compatibility starts with the iPhone 3GS (as the oldest iOS device to support it).

So much fail and ignorance there, I can't even comprehend it. Seriously? How can someone not realize it's the same phone they already have?? I guess those cases really make it unrecognizable.

The Verizon Wireless IPhone 5 is NOT the same IPhone as the IPhone 4S and you know it. Us Verizon and Sprint Customers were stuck @ 3G Data Speeds as stuff like UMTS did NOT apply to us as Verizon and Sprint are CDMA, so stop saying that is the same Apple IPhone as that is 100% completely False! Keep in mind that the Apple IPhone 5 has an A6 Processor as well, where as the Apple IPhone 4S has an Apple A5 Processor! Also, according to Apple: the IPhone 5 is 2X Faster than the IPhone 4S! Even with an IPhone 4S: I have at times had trouble watching Origional Star Trek on Verizon Wireless's Video App due to being stuck @ 3G Speeds! Get your facts straight before you post! Otherwise I will have to Report you again! Just FYI!

Wild Card: The AT&T version of the Apple IPhone 4S was Compatible with their Older 4G Network but NOT their newer 4G LTE Network. That is the reason why AT&T requested that Apple change the 3G indicator on the IPhone 4S to a 4G indicator even though AT&T's older 4G Network was much slower than their newer 4G LTE Network. Just FYI.

You "reported" me for that? Seriously? Tell me where I said the iPhone 5 was the same as the iPhone 4S. First off, I know the iPhone 5 is not the "same" as the 4S. I'm very aware of all of the differences between those 2 phones. Secondly, I don't need you to explain anything to me at all, other than where I said that the iPhone 5 and 4S were "the same" phones. I was specifically referring to the video where those people "thought" they were holding the iPhone 5, but were in fact holding either a 4S. How about next time YOU get your facts straight before making yourself look like an idiot.

Staged or not, there's plenty of people that would say the same things. I work with several of them.

Take it to an Apple store, they'll replace it for you, no questions. It's a problem and I went to the Apple store and got two iPhone 4's replaced because of the home button not working all of the time.

I'm already running iOS 6. Google will tell you where to download the GM.
