As news of Apple’s win over Samsung has been the headlines of numerous tech venues and avenues – along with how supermodel Kate Upton brought her iPhone with her during a Samsung event – the announced feature set to come with the iOS 6 has somewhat been overshadowed, with understandable cause.
Featured during the recently held World Wide Developer’s conference, the full features of the iOS 6 has been showcased during the event, nifty features which promise a lot of productivity and fun to come with the use of an iOS-capable device.
Here are some of the new mobile operating system’s notable features.
Maps – Pegged to implement a three dimensional map modeling system, the iOS 6’s maps is primed to be a photo-realistic map/navigation feature suite, with an enhanced traffic management system which bases distances in coming up with relevant time/duration expectations.
Bottom line, the iOS 6’s maps is made more dynamic and made more realistic for users’ experiences and navigation needs.
Social Networking Tools – Though not exactly anything new, enhanced support for social network sharing/posting is featured in the new iOS 6, facilitating the easy sharing of digital media, photos and videos, to subscribed social network accounts.
Passbook – A new feature to be found in the new iOS 6, Passbook enhances the management and organization of various “passbook” required activities, with reminder features for travel schedules, coupon expiration dates and more. With reminders still active even if a screen is locked, Passbook is promising as a useful iOS 6 feature, one which users and retail venues would greatly smile upon.
With retakes to be expected from the iBooks Store, App Store and iTunes, there is still a lot of expansion to be expected from the new iOS 6, and as the unveiling of the next iPhone draws near, those expectations are sure to be well matched and tuned to work with Apple’s new mobile operating system.
