Here we go. I talked about iOS 6 announcement and its features in my previous articles. Let’s discuss few of the features properly which can excite the users for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch. We got nothing openly about iPhone 5 in the WWDC show, but we surely get to know about new MacBook Air, a Retina display-packing MacBook Pro and especially iOS 6.
iOS 6 launch date has been confirmed i.e. autumn which will bring all new features for iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 2nd generation iPad and newer, and the 4th generation iPod Touch.
Due to Siri one can deal with different operation with the help of voice assistant. Now you will enjoy using Siri to run apps and learn more about content such as sports and movies. And the news is that Siri is coming to support new iPad.
Proper turn-to-turn Map Directions
Everyone knows about Google’s Map services. Now be prepared to access the Map application from Apple. They will be providing the “turn-to-turn” 3D guidelines for directions of your route in their Map service. The giant also commits that they have already been able to add 100 million business listings for the Map directions. And above that, iPad users will also enjoy it.
Facetime over 3G
We have been listening the rumors about this since a long time. But at last in WWDC 2012 Apple has confirmed about is. So don’t look around for Wi-Fi connection availability for video chat time in.
After upgrading to iOS 6, you will be observing the Facebook App is a part of default Apps just like calendar, contacts and even the App Store etc. So after iOS 6, all the events and notifications like “friend’s birthday” will be popping up on your iDevice just like Calendar. You’ll be able to post locations to Facebook directly from the maps app and post photos to Facebook directly from the photos app. Another exciting thing will be that whenever any friend will share their emails and phone numbers on Facebook, you will notice that in your iPhone’s contact book.
Stuck in a meeting
Thanks to Cupertino Company, now we can get the notifications for any important reminders that we may need to remember in iOS 6. For example if my wife asks me to call her when I will have to leave office, then this feature will help me. I will set a reminder ‘Remind me to call my wife when I leave my office’. And when I will leave my office location I will receive a nudge to make that call.
