In National News, News

Apple released its new iOS 6 operating system for its phones and tablets at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The new operating system replaces Google Maps with Apple’s own Maps app. It has features such as tilt-and-rotate, turn-by-turn navigation, and 3-D model maps for big cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Siri, the voice-recognition app, can recognize more languages and works in more countries now. Users can also open apps through Siri.

IOS 6 no longer has a built-in Youtube app, though users are still able to access the site in their browser.

The operating system is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S and 5 models, the iPod Touch 4 and 5, as well as the iPad 2 and the new iPad.
