When Siri launched in iOS 5, it worked well—to an extent. When confronted with complex questions, the virtual personal assistant broke down. But in iOS 6, Siri is vastly improved and delivers all kinds of useful information, including sports scores, movie times and more. It's a great app to use in a pinch.


Apple is believed to have had a strong end to 2012. In fact, a recent study from research firm Flurry Analytics found that more than 50 million Android and iOS-based devices were activated in the last week of 2012 alone. And a large percentage of those activations were iPhones and iPads. In other words, Apple has added many more people to the population of iOS faithful. Some of those folks, especially first-time iOS users, are looking for a little guidance on what they should and should not do with their new devices. So, to help those folks out a bit, it might be a good time to provide a refresher on the better features available in iOS 6. From an improved Siri to enhanced security and reliability, iOS 6 is a nice step up over iOS 5. And the sooner new iPhone and iPad owners try out those nice features, the sooner they will learn how to get the most out of their new iOS device. So, here is a look at some of the iOS 6 features that new iPhone and iPad owners will love.
