In Pictures: iOS 6 arrives - its 16 key new features

Although the new OS for the iPad and iPhone is largely a collection of refinements, users will still want it

Welcome to the iOS evolution

We're used to major advances in each version of iOS, but that's not the case in iOS 6 with the exceptions of the new Guided Access mode for the iPad and of the Passbook app for managing digital tickets on the iPhone.

Instead of revolution, iOS 6 is about evolution -- and a fair amount of filling in of long-standing gaps. For example, you can finally insert a photo from within an email and upload images to the Web into the Photos app, as well as assign individual signatures to each email account. Gone is the requirement to enter a password to install software updates.

Read on for the 16 new or improved capabilities that are worth an update to iOS 6.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
