Apple’s new iOS 6 operating system is now available for several models of the iPhone and iPad, and it’s chock full of new features.
When Apple announced the iPhone 5 running iOS 6 a week ago, it also said that the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, and new iPad will all also run the iOS 6 operating system. If you have any one of those devices, you can update by going into Settings > General > Software Update. Before updating, we’d recommend backing up your device entirely — just in case.
