Apple's iOS 6 is the newest mobile operating system out for iPhones and iPads (as of September 2012). Here is some information on what you'll find with Apple's iOS 6.

  • A New Map App - Now Apple has its own with Vector-based graphics. It offers directions with voice, 3D views, and flyover features on newer iOS devices, such as the new iPad, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
  • Improved Siri - Siri can now open apps and remember questions you recently asked, and is more integrated with functions that you use most often on your iPhone. You can quickly use it to get sports scores, ask for directions, and dictate notes, texts, and emails.
  • Passbook - This feature will only be available on iPhones and is all about convenience. It allows you to organize your passes and cards, such as admission tickets and merchant loyalty cards, in one place for easy access when you need them.
  • Phone Controls - You can now reply to incoming calls with text messages when you are busy, and set a reminder to return the call later at a specific time when you know you'll be in the office. You also have the option to block incoming calls when you're out on an inspection.
  • Email - A VIP option has been added so you can get an alert when you receive an email from an important contact. With the new Mail app, after you start typing an email, you also have the option to add photos into it.
