Apple’s long awaited iOS 6 is rolling out to iPhone, iPad, and iPod users today. What can you expect from the upgrade?

Apple claims there are 200 new features but here are the major ones:

Deeper integration with Facebook and Twitter
A smarter Siri, smart enough to launch apps and get sports scores
A new maps app to replace Google maps with turn by turn voice directions.
The ability to take panoramic photos
And the new passbook app which organizers tickets, gifts cards, ect

So how do the masters of tech feel about the new operating system?

The tech media seem to unanimously agree - it’s worth an upgrade.

TechCrunch think’s its a big step forward.

“...but that’s hardly surprising given Apple’s track record. As always, there will be those who say it doesn’t push the envelope enough, and Maps has already ruffled quite a few feathers.”

And Engadget says it’s not a revolutionary update BUT


“On the other hand, it's still an improvement over iOS 5. But let's face it -- this won't be a difficult decision to make. Indeed, there's very little reason not to hit the upgrade button.”

And what about you sneaky jailbreakers? You may want to hold off a few days. The dev team behind Redsn0w are promising a jailbrake solution in the next few days.
