10 Of The Best Features Of iOS6

As I’m sure everyone is aware, Apple released iOS6 around a week ago and since then, it has been all over the internet. Some people love it, some people hate it. There is no doubt that there have been a few bugs with the update, but there are some pretty awesome new features too, and we have rounded up a list of what we think are 10 of the best. Some of them you might not even have noticed.

#1 – Siri

Siri has been on the iPhone 4S for a while but in the latest update, Apple has made it do even more. You can now open apps with Siri voice commands and much more. It’s a shame it still isn’t available on the iPhone 4.

 

#2 – Emoji Update

You might not have noticed this but it is definitely one of the best new features. If you have Emoji installed, you will notice that you will have a number of new icons with the iOS6 update, and you don’t even have to do anything to get them.

 

#3 – Do Not Disturb Mode

With the new Do Not Disturb mode, you are now able to automatically reply to calls and let them know that you are busy without being disturbed. A great new feature for sure.

 

#4 – YouTube

If you’ve got iOS6, you probably noticed that the YouTube App disappeared. Not to worry as there’s a better one available in the app store for free. A completely new design and everything.

 

#5 – Clock Updates

Again, you might not have noticed that Apple has actually updated the clock app to allow you to wake up to a song of your choice when your alarm goes off. A nice little touch.

 

#6 – Facebook Integration

Facebook has been extremely well integrated into iOS and you can now share just about anything with just a click of a button the OS. Great for those share-a-holics.

 

#7 – 3D Maps

Yes, there have been a few issues with this but it is still a great addition. 3D maps allows you to view walking directions and much more. It also allows you to view flyover in certain locations.

 

#8 – Passbook

A great addition to the iOS system if you are a regular traveller or even just visit Starbucks pretty often. This will allow you to keep all of your tickets in one place, on your iPhone.

 

#9 – Panarama Photos

Now, the iPhone camera takes panorama photos if you have the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 at least. These photos are great quality and are yet another great addition.

 

#10 – VIP Mailbox

If you have favourite contacts, then this will be great for your email. Get alerted when you receive an email from one of them with VIP mailbox.
