While waiting for the iPhone 5 to reach us, let's have quick look at the newly release Apple-iOS 6 , the latest update to the mobile OS that powers the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Below are the major reviews from state:

David Pogue, The New York Times:
Loses Google Maps, but Adds Other Features.
"In the end, iOS 6 is to software what the iPhone 5 is to hardware: a big collection of improvements, many of which are really clever and good, that don't take us in any big new directions. Lots and lots of nips and tucks — that's Apple's motto lately."

Dan Moran, Macworld:
Refined iOS 6 highlighted by stunning Maps overhaul.
"Following on the heels of the massive update that was iOS 5, iOS 6 might seem like merely a modest update. But that doesn't make it insignificant by any means: A key app has received a substantial overhaul in this latest update, Apple has added an intriguing new—if yet unproven—built-in app, and the company has even, for the first time, removed a piece of software present since the iPhone's launch."

Darrell Etherington, TechCrunch:
The Highs, The Lows, And Everything In Between. "Overall, iOS 6 is a big step forward, but that's hardly surprising given Apple's track record. As always, there will be those who say it doesn't push the envelope enough, and Maps has already ruffled quite a few feathers. But that Maps has raised such an outcry is perfect example of why Apple's generally doing things right with iOS updates: it stick out like a sore thumb, and in truth, it's not a big enough step backward to do anything beyond mildly inconvenience a few folks. Plus, it's inevitable that Google will offer up its own standalone Maps app to address that single deficiency."

Rene Ritchie, iMore:
The definitive guide to Apple's iOS 6 software features for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
"iOS 6 is nowhere near as audacious as iOS 2, which brought the App Store, or iOS 5, which cut the iTunes cord, took us to the iCloud, and brought Siri along for the ride. It doesn't remove user and developer pain points the way iOS 3 did with cut/copy/paste or iOS 4 did with multitasking. iOS 6 is more of a soft-reset and a way to set the stage for iterations to comes. It strips Google almost completely out of iOS and introduces an all-new Maps app and increased Siri intermediation. It introduces Passbook, which isn't a digital wallet, but does provide a single repository for tickets and balances, and starts to make mobile transactions convenient and comfortable. It abstracts and outsources sharing with new Facebook and enhanced Twitter integration, so Apple no longer has to worry about creating awkward new networks of their own. And it increases support for China, which has become a hugely important market for Apple."

Raymond Wong, BGR:
Refining the world's most refined mobile OS.
"In the end, iOS 6 is yet another welcome update to polish off what was already a solid OS. It's got a ton of small features to make daily inconveniences that much more manageable, and that's really what technology should be; it should work to make our lives easier. iOS 6 does that in the simplest of ways. It doesn't break previous conventions for anything bold and new, but who cares? iOS worked beautifully when the original iPhone was released and it'll work again with the iPhone 5 — with virtually zero 'learning' required."
