What are iOS 6 features? When will it be release?


The moment iOS 6 is available, it will be supported on the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2 and up and 4th generation iPod Touch. iO6 has more than 200 new features including enhanced Google Maps, Siri for iPad, Facebook integration, new calling features such as Geo-fence and DO NOT DISTURB, Facetime video chat over wireless networks, photo streaming,  Safari and iCloud, Mail VIPs, Passbook, and Guided Access.

With the revamped Map, the graphics and text are extremely detailed, has turn-by-turn navigation, can see cities and landmarks in 3D from the aerial view, and provides real-time traffic updates.

You can use Siri in iPad by holding down the Home button. With iO6, Siri comprehends more languages, available in more countries, enhanced sports knowledge, and improved restaurants recommendations. You can also tweet right from Siri.

iO6 will allow you to post directly to Facebook – photos,  your location from the map, or game results right from the Game Center. You may also ask Siri to post it for you.

Geo-Fence feature allows you to send a message instead of picking up the call and then sets a callback reminder. DO NOT DISTURB feature suppresses incoming call and notifications from the selected contact groups.

iO6 will bring FaceTime to a wireless status. It means that you can make and receive FaceTime call whenever and wherever you are.  You will be provided with a unifying number and an Apple ID to be used in FaceTime.

Shared photo streams: select the photos you’d like to share with just the people you choose. You may view the photos on Mac, Apple TV and on the web.

iCloud Tabs keeps track of which tabs you have open on your iDevices. This will work in Safari only. Safari saves the web pages and adds it to the offline reading list.

Mail in iO6 lets you set up a VIP list or email correspondents that are most frequently contacted.

You can get all your passes, movie tickets, cards and coupons in one place. Simply scan these on your iPhone or iPod and then you can manage to see the changes and expiration dates of your passes.

Guided Access is beneficial for people with vision, hearing, learning and mobility disabilities. It locks an application when in use so that the person with disability will remain on task, focused on the content and restrict them on touching certain areas of the screen.

iOS 6 is coming this fall but Apple has not announced yet on when is the specific release date.

I am glad that you post your query here. Well, with regards to your question Bertharcummings about the features of iOS 6. It has great features that are unique from other gadgets. It is expected that it will be released this last months of this year. As what I see it will hit a volume of sales. Apple always produces high quality products at reasonable price.

iOS 6 was recently released with the biggest upgrade and improved features. There is no more YouTube and Google Maps. Apple has its own mapping app now with the help of TomTom. The Siri can work now in UK. Safari has been updated and FaceTime is available now on 3G network (won't work on iPhone 4). Socializing is better now with Photo Streams and more Facebook integration. Apple’s newest application which is the Passbook is very useful for shoppers instead of using their credit cards, a more improved and useful Siri and a lot more. But not all these features are available on all Apple devices. Certain features are only available to certain Apple devices such as the Facetime over cellular. It is not available on iPhone 4, iPod Touch (4th and 5th Gen) and the iPad 2. With iOS 6 you can now decline incoming call with a text message informing the caller that you will call them back, user can now upload photos to websites with Safari, new App Store and iTunes Store, you can now use a song for alarm, and over 200 more features.

iOS 6 added a new app called “Apple Maps” which replaces Google Maps as the default mapping service for the mobile operating system. Other new applications include a dedicated Podcasts app which serves as the central location for podcasts and a Passbook app which can be used for managing various types of tickets, coupons, loyalty cards, and boarding passes.

The iOS 6 also brought a visual overhaul for the Apple App Store applying tweaks to search algorithms and a card-based app layout. Apple also integrated Facebook into the mobile operating system combining status messages such as buttons and contact and event synchronization to several of Apple’s applications. iOS 6 received several updates: 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1, 6.1.1, 6.1.2, 6.1.3, 6.1.4, 6.1.5, and 6.1.6.
