One of the big enhancements is full integration with the iTunes Store: you can now browse, preview and purchase iTunes music content directly within the app. Thanks to iOS 6, you can also make use of multi-channel audio interfaces, so you can cue your tracks and output them in stereo at the same time.
We're assured, too, that "djay for iPhone now leverages the A6 processor and wider screen on the new iPhone 5". We're assured that the iPhone 5's screen provides more room for elements that were previously hidden away in sub-menus (such as pitch bending, the sync button and beats-per-minute display).
