iOS 6: Apple unveils 'World's most advanced mobile operating system'

Big changes ahoy for your phone and tablet

Apple has taken the wraps off iOS 6 and offers some big updates that iFans the world over will lap up.

First up is improved Siri integration - you can now launch apps right from the voice recognition software, as well as get a wealth of information.

You can open games (which seemed to get a huge reception from the audience for a simple and slightly pointless function) as well as get sports scores (including the English Premier League) and resturant reservations.

Siri is also integrated into the car experience - Apple is working with a number of car manufacturers to have a voice-activated button on the steering wheel, known as Eyes Free.

Local search is also being extended around the world - so information on businesses around UK-dwellers should finally be available too.
