Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

11 new features of iOS 6Everyone is anxiously awaiting the debut of Apple’s iOS 6 which is expected to arrive in the fall of 2012.  Apple proudly launched iOS 6 during it’s WordWide Developers Conference in June, 2012 and we’re here to share the most popular and talked about features and updates.  See our previous post, Top 10 Instagram Photos from WWDC 2012, for a detailed look at the conference via images.  Our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices put together the following list of 11 eye-opening features and updates to expect in the highly anticipated iOS 6:

1. Maps.  Instead of using Google maps, Apple will be using its own newly designed map app for iOS 6.  Unlike Google, this map can be tilted to view the map from an angle and there’s no pixelation when you zoom in as it’s vector based.  Apple is also introducing turn-by-turn navigation similar to the Android.  Users can follow maps with 3D views, look at road signs for their new turn and check traffic.

2. Siri.  The quirky little voice assistant is getting an upgrade to know more about sports and movies.  You can ask Siri about the current status of the Olympic games or what movie is playing at your local movie theater.  Check out our previous post, 5 best apps for the 2012 London Olympics, for more information on how to follow the upcoming games on your favorite Apple devices.
