I can already scan my boarding pass for flights now. I also have an app that 
tells me all gate changes and it works great!

  Hello Chip and others interested in this thread:
  What  you are describing below sounds a lot like the new feature in IOS6  
called PASSBOOK. 

  Your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, loyalty cards, and more 
are now all in one place. With Passbook, you can scan your iPhone or iPod touch 
to check in for a flight, get into a movie, and redeem a coupon. You can also 
see when your coupons expire, where your concert seats are, and the balance 
left on that all-important coffee bar card. Wake your iPhone or iPod touch, and 
passes appear on your Lock screen at the appropriate time and place — like when 
you reach the airport or walk into the store to redeem your gift card or 
coupon. And if your gate changes after you’ve checked in for your flight, 
Passbook will even alert you to make sure you’re not relaxing in the wrong 
terminal.

  Thanks Lynn.  

   

  Also, for anyone considering buying an I-phone, you may want to wait until 
the I-phone five comes out (rumored to be announced in the next few weeks), as 
it will have a new technology built-in (called near-field communications) which 
allows the phone to be used as an electronic wallet or creditcard; just touch 
it to a pay station and it instantly pays the coke machine, restaurant, etc., 
including the equivalent of showing your “library card” or “customer rewards 
card” etc.  I believe the Google Nexus and some other Android smart phones 
already have this.

  Hay look what IOS6 does for accessibility; VoiceOver, the revolutionary 
screen reader for blind and low-vision users, is now integrated with Maps, 
AssistiveTouch, and Zoom.. 

   

  Below is the link for the new IOS6A features
