iOS 6–What’s New About It!

Apple just announce the much awaited iOS 6 in their recently WWDC, which also includes the announcement of the new line of Macbook Pro with Retina Display and refresh Macbook Air line.

So What's new with iOS 6? Let me highlight some of its new features.

Let us start with the new Maps, Apple replace Google maps and introduce their own mapping service with turn-by-turn navigation and live traffic information.

Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature.1 All of which may just make this app the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever.


Siri! finally it will be available on most of iOS devices, expect for older models.

Ask Siri about sports scores and stats, where to eat, what movies to see — even ask to make Facebook posts. Siri understands more languages and works in more countries. So you can get more things done in more places around the world. And most exciting of all, with Siri on the new iPad, on more devices, too.*


Facebook is now more integrated in iOS 6 more than ever, it seems that Apple and Facebook have a strong relationship.

Now it’s easier than ever to interact with the world’s largest social network. And there’s no need to leave your app to do it. Share a photo to Facebook right from Camera or Photos. Post your location right from Maps. Brag about a high score right from Game Center. If you have your hands full, just ask Siri to post for you. You need to sign in to Facebook only once, and you’ll be off and sharing.

Shared Photo Stream, I’ve always like this featured because every time you use the camera of any of your iOS devices those media are streamed to all your iOS devices and and you view them and shared it too.

Now you can share just the photos you want, with just the people you choose. Simply select photos from the Photos app, tap the Share button, choose who you want to share your photos with, and they’re on their way. Friends using iCloud on an iOS 6 device or a Mac running Mountain Lion get the photos delivered immediately in the Photos app or iPhoto.3 You can even view shared photo streams on Apple TV

Passbook, it’s a new feature of iOS 6 this is more like another steps on becoming the next Google Wallet.

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.


Accessibility, another new feature that can be use by people with disability, this is really great feature because iPad is already used in helping other people to interact and be able to communicate and learn in visual manner using this device.

iOS 6 comes with even more features to make it easier for people with vision, hearing, learning, and mobility disabilities to get the most from their iOS devices. Guided Access helps students with disabilities such as autism remain on task and focused on content
