Apple has been rolling out the beta iOS6 over the last couple of months and will be launching the final version of the operating system in the fall. We‘re not sure whether that will be on September the 12th along with the iPhone5, however a double launch would definitely give Apple users a treat.
The beta version shows us that the iPhone might become indispensable whenever, wherever, having hundreds of updates and improvements. Everyone is talking about some of the apps that will make your life easier.
Passbook, the new e-tickets app, gathers all your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, loyalty cards in one place. And with the help of Siri, the iPhone’s virtual assistant, you can organize all your meeting with a touch.
Siri is also getting smarter with the release of the new iOS6: she will now be able to launch apps, tweet and pull in scores, game summaries and player stats for those passionate about sports.
For the socialites, deep Facebook integration would be the most important update that iOS6 has, similar to the one Twitter got in iOS5. And if your photos are the most important thing in your smartphone, Apple has also given its phone a “Do Not Disturb” mode, for the occasional anti-social mood: messages still arrive, but the screen doesn’t light up or make any noise. Also, you can use the VIP feature to make sure you hear from the people who really matter: mail from important people will be highlighted.
Users can now share groups of photos to their friends over iCloud, and with iCloud Tabs on Safari, you will never again forget which pages you have open on your devices. This way, you can start browsing on one device and pick up where you left off on another device.
The iOS6 will support the iPhone 3GS and later, the second and third generation iPads and the fourth generation iPod touch. Also, the iPhone Backup Extractor has already been tested to work with all iOS 6 backups. Make sure to create a safe backup before updating your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
