Apple showed off its new wares to the world today, but the biggest surprise wasn’t a shiny new “one last thing…” gizmo. Nope: it’s that the 2009 iPhone 3GS getting iOS 6. Is this the longest lasting smartphone ever?
iOS 6 is the major story of WWDC 2012: at its keynote this evening, Apple has given its mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch a huge update, packing in a truckload of new features (More than 200). iOS boss Scott Forstall took to the stage to detail all the new features – read on for the scoop on all the big changes.
