New features will be added to Safari which has been with the iPhone since it was launched in 2007. The browser will now have iCloud Tabs that will watch over the pages you have open on your handset so that you can always pick up right where you left off on any device whether it is your iPhone, iPad or computer. The browser will not just save links; it saves pages in reading lists. This means they are available even if you are not connected to the internet.

Users can now see information about websites that have an app store in their browser thanks to the Smart app banner. If you have the app of the webpage you have the option of opening it from within Safari.

If you are viewing Safari and rotate to landscape there will be a full screen button you can tap to remove all the interface elements to make the most of the display of the handset. There are semi-transparent buttons allowing you to go back or exit.

It is thought that iOS6 will be released at some point in the fall, possibly around 19th September which is just when the iPhone 5 is nearing stores.
