You may or may not have been aware that over the past week we’ve been running a series of articles taking an in depth look at the key features in iOS 6. Since we’re aware that many of you are busy all week, we thought it’d be a good idea to give you one page with links to everything we’ve covered so far. To save any rambling, I’ll get straight to it (each title is a link to the original article):
With iOS 5 we got Twitter ingrained deep in to the software. Although it’s been a great addition, many questioned why Facebook wasn’t there. Thankfully, it will be in the official launch of iOS 6, and will make posting and sharing images and thoughts so much easier.
The App Store gets a massive and much needed redesign in the new iPhone operating system. Not only is it prettier, it’s also much more efficient. It no longer kicks you out of the store when downloading apps, also, it won’t ask you for your login details when updating existing apps.
In a bold move, Apple kicked the worldwide standard Google Maps out of its default apps list. Instead, replacing it with an in-house designed program taking data from TomTom and a new 3D modeling program from C3 Technologies. Not only is it quicker, but also features the long awaited voice navigation.
Maybe not as desired as the previous features, but useful nonetheless. You can now share photo albums through Photo Stream, Apple’s cloud based pic storage space in the sky.
I know, I know, why the heck wasn’t it there before? We’ll let bygones be bygones and just be grateful that we finally have a really great clock app on our Apple tablet. It features a World Clock, Timer, Stopwatch and Alarm.
