Apple Reveals Its New iOS 6 Features, Coming This Fall

SHARE:


Today (monday) apple introduced its most exciting product iOS 6 during its WWDC presentation. Looking specifically at iOS 6, Apple's next-generation mobile platform adds more than 200 new features including Siri enhancements and Facebook integration. Apple's new iOS will be released for developers and will finally be released with the new iPhone5 that will be announced during september. Here's some features revealed by apple.





Facebook: Apple has finally included Facebook integration in iOS 6. It delivered Twitter integration in iOS 5, and that left many users crying foul over the lack of Facebook support. That changes with iOS 6. Once it arrives, iOS device users will be able to fire off status updates, share photos, and share links directly from within other iOS applications. The new sharing tools bring Facebook to the iPhone in a long-overdue way.


Siri:
 While Apple stopped short of calling the new Siri a 1.0 full release, but the personal assistant gains appreciable powers. First, it can open other applications. That means if you're sitting at your desk, you can grab your iPhone and ask Siri to open the music player, and she will. Same goes for tons of other apps and actions. The added number of apps with which Siri can interact is a serious improvement. The fact that it works better for researching sports scores/stats, movies times and ticket purchases, and dinner reservations is all a bonus.

Eyes Free: An interesting feature added to iOS is Eyes Free. Together with a dozen auto manufacturers, Apple is looking to add a dedicated "Siri" button in cars. This will let iOS device owners access Siri and their iPhone when driving without taking their eyes off the road. Worried about Microsoft's Sync much, Apple?

Passbook: The feature no one asked for. Passbook collects items such as movie tickets, train tickets, airline tickets, sporting event tickets and makes them all available digitally in one application--complete with QRCodes and 2-D barcodes. With Passbook, you can purchase apps through Fandango, have them sent to your iPhone, and then gain access to the movies theater by flashing your iPhone to the ticket counter. Neat.

Apple Maps: Apple officially dumped Google Maps in iOS 6. According to what Apple revealed, the new mapping tool for iOS devices offers turn-by-turn navigation, points-of-interest searching, integration with Siri for commands, and the ability to submit anonymous traffic/incident reports. It includes a flyover/3-D mode that offers incredible detail of U.S. cities, too. It looked impressive in the demos, but it remains to be seen if it can be a real Google Maps killer.

FaceTime Over Cellular: Finally. After two years of FaceTime, Apple has finally made it available over 3G cellular connections. Since launch it has only worked over Wi-Fi, which was a serious limitation. Now that it will be available over 3G, you can expect FaceTime's usage to increase exponentially. FaceTime will also combine a user's phone number and Apple ID, allowing them to answer either their phone or their FaceTime app on their phone or Mac.

Safari: Apple has copied some of its competitors with some much-needed upgrades features for Safari. First and foremost is the ability to sync open tabs from Safari on a desktop to Safari on an iOS device via iCloud. This also requires OS X Mountain Lion, but still, it took Apple long enough. Opera, Firefox, and others have offered this for ages.

Email: Apple didn't spend too much time on the new email for iOS application, but showed off two much-needed improvements. First, iOS device users will be able to designate VIP email senders. In other words, if you want to prioritize emails from your boss on your iPhone, you'll be able to. Much more important, however, is the ability to add pictures and videos to emails directly from the email application. In previous versions of iOS, if you wanted to add a photo, video, or other file, you had to do so directly from the photo application. This is a major headache that should have been cleared up a long time ago.




iOS 6 Support:
iOS 6 will be supported on the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and iPhone 3GS.
iOS 6 will be supported on the iPad 2, and the new iPad.
iOS 6 will be supported on the fourth-generation iPod touch.
