Digital representations of pinball machines seem to get better and better with each new passing genre entry, and they've proven particularly well-suited to the iPad and iPhone. Several slick apps are available on both devices that deliver a mix of original and classic tables, including many based on beloved characters and properties, and typically deliver a large array of perspectives and options to satisfy even the most avid pinball nut. Some fantastical options exist, like Frogger Pinball and Undead Attack Pinball, but for those players seeking a real-life experience on their iOS device of choice, these six apps can satisfy that need.

Of course, there are plenty of ways to continue learning through the hot summer months between school sessions without skimping on the fun. Not only will these apps entertain your kids, they'll also help keep their noggins firing on all cylinders until the fall.
We got our first official glimpse at iOS 6 yesterday via the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2012 Keynote address, and the future appears very bright for both iPhone and iPad users. Due out this fall, the latest major refresh adds a bevy of enhancements to existing apps and features, including Siri and FaceTime, while introducing all-new experiences -- like an Apple-designed Maps app with turn-by-turn navigation that replaces Google Maps, as well as the sleek Passbook.
