iOS 6 appears to be a great update, with many new and useful features for iPhones and iPads--but the changes aren't so radical that you'll have to learn the OS all over again.

Reminders And Geofencing
One of the newest and niftiest things in iOS 6 is geofencing, which is the ability of iPhone to execute specific events when you cross a specific geographic threshold or location.
