Engadget Review

iOS 6 packs in plenty of improvements, but lacks the pizzazz we've seen in previous updates.

Pros
  • Voice turn-by-turn navigation
  • Improved overall performance
  • Siri has improved functionality
Cons
  • App Store layout is difficult to navigate
  • Lots of minor improvements, few major revisions
  • New maps are decent, but still a work in progress
