  • The App Stores have been redesigned from the ground up. Applications are stacked neatly, and the interface is far cleaner and easier to use. 

  • The vast majority of applications for iOS 5 still work for iOS 6 -- even the quirky ones. Everything is a lot easier to see in the redesigned App Store. The same features are there -- from top charts to featured apps -- however.

  • As with previous iOS versions, you can continue to easily download apps from the App Store that are not on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Simply sign in with your Apple ID and select the apps you want to download. If you've paid for them already, they are free to download again.

    • Unlike te dispoable phones...

      Cough, cough, Nokia, the currently shipping iPhones will get this upgrade. That is the real difference, Aple wants to keep everyone current, while some other Mega Corps only say they want to keep everyone current. Apple sells a device, while the other Mega Corp sells license stickers. Giving "free upgrades" reduces the number of paid license stickers. Why give the customer a free upgrade when you can charge them a fee?
