With the release of iOS 6 Apple users can no longer control their excitement! iOS 6 is Apple’s newest mobile OS (operating system) that unveils a lot of distinguished features which make us crave for it. This operating system comes absolutely free for download on your Apple devices like iPhone and iPad. Are you eager to know what iOS 6 offers? One of the notable updates in iOS 6 is the revamped Maps application which gives you a new perspective of the world around you.

Elements in the map are differentiated on the basis of vectors which gives you a detailed view of the images and text. You can zoom in, tilt or rotate the page to view a location. To help you spot places easily, the maps show names of each street and location. The turn-by-turn navigation is a new feature that comes with audio directions and a three dimensional view. What’s more? The Maps show real time updates of the present traffic conditions and even suggest alternate routes!

The Siri application is now more enhanced in iOS 6 and the service is extended to more countries. Now you need not tap or type. Just ask Siri to open an application or post updates on Facebook and Siri will do it for you. The whole world is connected to Facebook and you surely do not want to be left out. Now the calendar and contacts in your phone are connected to your Facebook account. So you will never miss any updates from your friends. Also, the applications allow you to directly share and post updates without leaving them. For instance, you can take a picture on your phone and instantly share it on Facebook without closing the camera apps.

You might want to share some personal photos only with your best friends and not want others to see it. Well, iOS 6 has the right solution for you as you can select photos and share it only with the people you desire. The photos are shared via a phone network and so it does not occupy iCloud storage space. Now, if you are a forgetful person who can’t remember when your coupons expire and cannot keep track of gift cards, boarding passes or movie tickets, then Passbook will alert you at the right time! The new FaceTime works using Wi-Fi or a phone network. This lets you engage in face-to –face conversations even on your iPad or iPod touch using your mobile number.

The Safari browsing cannot get any better as iCloud stores the web pages you have visited earlier. This lets you open the same web page from another device or continue reading even when your connection to the Internet is lost! What else can be more fascinating than this? So, dive in and start experiencing hordes of amazing features that come with iOS 6.
