Here is a snippet of feature improvements and changes to expect:

Integration with Facebook:

In addition to the Twitter integration that is currently available with the iOS5, Facebook will be integrated as well.

FaceTime on 3G:

FaceTime is not limited to Wifi anymore.  It's now available over the 3G cellular network.

New In-House Maps:

Google maps will no longer be on the new iOS 6.  Apple has created their own maps.

iCloud Tabs integration:

One cool feature will allow users to browse from one Apple device to another Apple device with the same iCloud tabs open on each of the iCloud-connected devices.  

Mail VIPs:

Certain contacts that are important can now be marked, and all their messages will be starred through the Mail VIPs option.

Photo Stream:

The new photo stream will allow easy sharing of photos with friends.

Passbook:

Tickets, coupons, boarding passes, and more can be accessed in one place.
