Apple has already released the final build of iOS 6, the latest version of its firmware for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. iOS 6 which is made available for iPhone 5 and 5th-generation iPod Touch out of the box will also work with earlier models of iDevices such as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 2, and The New iPad.
Apple says iOS 6 is available for download as an OTA (over-the-air) update if you’re running iOS 5 or later; unfortunately, I can’t seem to fetch the said update on my iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1.1. So I decided to hook it up to my computer so I can get the latest firmware through iTunes. As usual, if you want to do the same steps in upgrading the OS, all you have to do is just plug your iDevice in the USB interface, fire up the latest version of iTunes, and there you’ll see the notification similar to the one below.
In any case you want to stack iOS 6 in your firmware archives for later upgrade, hit the download links after the break. Yes, all of these come directly from Apple servers. Just click on your device’s version and happy downloading! 🙂
