New Features Of The iOS 6
One of the biggest highlights during the Worldwide Developer’s Conference is the announcement of Apples latest operating system, the iOS 6. The new operating system developed (iOS 6) by Apple has a lot of promise and as expected, Apple does not disappoint.
When Apple successfully integrated Twitter in iOS 5, Facebook fans seemed left behind. This is one of the main reasons why Apple has finally gives in to their whim with this latest iOS version. With the iOS 6 applications , users are now able to make status updates, share their favorite links and photos and they other things they like doing on Facebook.
Moreover, information of Facebook friends is now in sync across all available iOS devices. In other words, users will not have to worry about manually updating the list with the most recent changes. Contact details are automatically updated instead.
Interaction with friends has also become much easier than before as users can tag their favorite content and “like” them directly from the iTunes and the App store. In this way, users can easily view their friends’ recommendation. This is a feature which is not only helpful to users but one which the company can benefit from at the same time. It has now become easier to spread word about the latest apps.
Easier Navigation With Apple Maps
Android users may have been ahead when it comes to the full use of Google Maps, a fact that iPhone, iPad users were deprived of. But since Apple has come up with the brilliant idea to create their own application for Maps, iOS 6 users can now use turn by turn navigation and they actually get more.
The iOS 6 Maps is filled with sporting vector based elements. The turn by turn navigation is powered with spoken directions. There is also a Flyover feature available with photorealistic and interactive views in 3D! This is definitely something that Android users will envy.
The Maps app on iOS 6 offers information about traffic in real time. What is more is that it can also be used to guide users to a different route with lesser problematic traffic conditions. It is also built with a local search functionality that is Yelp integrated.
Plenty Of Other Surprises
Apple users will need a while to get familiar with the new features of the iOS 6, all 200 of them. Siri has become multilingual. There are new apps too such as the Passbook app that helps the user in organizing his passes for boarding and even in the movies. Another smart feature is the Guided Access that allows an individual to disable certain hardware buttons that will lock the iOS device within a single app. This particular feature will become very useful specifically to parents who want to control their children’s access to the internet and make the kids focus on learning instead. The iOS 6 also allows FaceTime users to make calls on mobile networks. They can also perform VIP Mailbox set up.
There are certainly a lot of advanced mobile features and functions that will make Apple fans long and crave for more. Again, Apple has proven, it is king when it comes to innovation.
