As the days go by, more and more interesting features are uncovered in iOS 6. Ranging from large changes down to small UI tweaks, it’s always a fun experience to see what is new with every update. One thing that helps that experience is getting the beta version of Apples software as a developer. It allows people to see what new stuff could be coming up and this time it’s unearthed a pretty cool feature.
According to Bloomberg, a well known and respected news site, Apple is going to be adding Yelp check-ins to the Maps application in iOS 6. This comes after screenshots were discovered in the developers kit showing the feature. Bloomberg reported the following:
“The Apple developer kit, which was given to programmers earlier this month and examined by Bloomberg, includes screen shots of Yelp check-ins within Apple Maps. Trudy Muller, a spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple, declined to comment, as did Vince Sollitto, a spokesman for San Francisco- based Yelp.“
This is pretty cool and I’d love to see this come. I’ve been running the beta software of iOS 6 and haven’t seen this feature, but Apple hasn’t released any more updates to it. So it is more than possible that this feature will be pushed out with an update. I can’t wait to see if this is true. While it may not be a “huge” addition, it definitely adds to the overall experience and functionality of the devices.
