The future of iOS, Apple's operating system for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, looks bright after iOS 6 was unveiled at the Apple WWDC keynote speech last night in the company's home town of San Francisco.

Although overshadowed somewhat by Apple's new range of MacBooks, the list of improvements and brand-new features in iOS 6 - more than 200, says Apple - make exciting reading ahead of its official launch. No date was revealed (other than sometime in the autumn), but current rumours suggest it will be rolling out some time in September - possibly alongside a new iPhone.

Like previous versions of iOS, it will be a free update to existing users, although sadly iPad 1 and third-generation iPod touch users will miss out, as will anyone still using an iPhone 3G or below.

With so much to digest, here's our quick-fire guide to what you need to know about what Apple has in store for its portable devices.
