Kony Solutions, Inc., the leading mobile and multi-channel application platform provider, announced support for the Apple iOS 6 operating system and iPhone 5 that were announced Wednesday, as well as support for Apple's Pass Kit APIs and Passbook features.

Apps built on the KonyOne Platform will immediately support the new native functionality of iOS 6 such as Apple Maps, and will continue supporting all the functionality of Siri. Kony is also offering support for the Pass Kit APIs and allows developers full access to Passbook features directly from within its platform.
