iOS 6 is now available for download. The new operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can be downloaded over the air from the device, or via iTunes, and requires 2.4 GB of space. The update is compatible with the iPhone 3GS or better, the 4th generation iPod touch, and the iPad 2 or better, though not all of the 200 new features are available on all devices.

To download the update on your device, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

iOS 6 brings a slew of new features, including system-level Facebook integration (much like iOS 5 did for Twitter), a new Maps app (which replaces the one powered by Google), and the Passbook ticket organizer. For a list of features, visit the Apple iOS web page.
