In Pictures: iOS 6 arrives - its 16 key new features

Although the new OS for the iPad and iPhone is largely a collection of refinements, users will still want it

Restricting app use with Guided Access

Available only on the iPad, the Guided Access setting limits users to just the current running app, which is great for a kiosk or as a form of basic parental control when you hand over an iPad to your kid. (Triple-click the Home button to enter Guided Access mode; triple-click it again and enter a password to exit.)

But Guided Access does more: You can disable certain areas of the app's screen, such as to prevent opening the iTunes Store within iTunes or accessing bookmarks in Safari. You just circle the area to block access to when setting up Guided Access. You can also disable the touchscreen entirely and/or disable screen rotation.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
