1. Passbook Sync with iCloud

iCloud supports Passbook Syncing, which keeps all of your passes in sync across your devices. You can go to Settings > iCloud, and flip the Passbook switch to On. But it's a pity that Passbook doesn’t run on iPad, just iPhone 3GS and later and fourth- and fifth-gen iPod touch.

2. Launch App with Siri

When you have many apps on multiple home screens, we always wind up searching Spotlight and launching from there. In iOS 6, Siri can launch apps for you. Just say “Open (or Run) App Name,” and Siri will follow your request, opening the app on your iPad 3, fifth-gen iPod touch, or iPhone 4S or 5.

3. Use History Btton to Find out What You have Viewed

If you don’t remember what you searched for on the iTunes Store, App Store, or the iBookstore, you can use the new History button in the search bar to instantly pull up a list of your recently viewed items.

Apple brought the panorama taking function into iOS 6. You can use this function on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and the fifth-gen iPod touch. If you want to take a Panorama, you can open the Camera app and choose Options > Panorama. Hold the iPhone in portrait mode, tap the shutter button, and then slowly move your camera to the right -- you’ll see a warning if you pan too quickly. To finish, tap the shutter button again.

On the iPhone and iPod touch version of Safari, you can now see more when surfing the web.

The address and toolbar will disappear, leaving you with a full-screen website and semi-transparent Back and Exit Full Screen buttons in the bottom corners.

6. Offline Reading List in Safar

Tapping the Share button and adding an item to your Reading List will now cache the webpage on your local device so that you can read it while offline from the Internet.
