    Aside from all the iPhone 5 excitement today, Apple also officially announced iOS 6 of course, which will be available to download in one week’s time, Wednesday, September 19, which is just two days before the iPhone 5 goes on sale. It will be available for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the new iPad, iPad 2, and iPod touch, but sadly not the first-generation iPad. Apple says that iOS 6 comes with more than 200 new user features including the all-new, Apple-designed Maps app, complete with turn-by-turn navigation and the new Flyover view; Facebook integration for Contacts and Calendar, including the ability to post straight from Notification Center; Passbook; new Siri features, including more language support, easy access to sports scores, restaurant recommendations, film listings; Apps such as Photos, Safari and Maps will all also be Siri and Facebook enabled; and finally, iOS 6 will also add Shared Photo Streams via iCloud.

      iOS 6 and the new iTunes. That is major. I really hope iTunes is improved. I'm tired of hating it?

      If downloading iOS 6 will my all my apps that I have on my iPAD now remain or will I have to get them all over again?

      Your apps will survive the update. You may find updates for your apps too as they may be optimized for iOS6.

      Same advice as always, though. Do a backup before you do anything else, just in case.
