WWDC 2012: iOS 6

 

With rumours hinting at the launch of a new iPhone late this year, the upcoming iOS 6 has a lot to prove. Although features leaks have pretty
much been thin on the ground, here’s what’s been floating about so far.

Google Maps has been present in the iPhone since the original handset landed five years ago, however, MacRumours reports that iOS 6 will shun the search engine’s offering and sport its own map sofhttp://cms.t3.com/articles/standard_article/8710718tware.

According to the site, it will be a “cleaner, faster and more reliable experience” and will also sport a 3D mode. Wondering what on earth they’re
banging on about? Watch the video below to find out.

By the time the iPhone 5 is released, Apple’s voice assistant app Siri will be a full year old (and hopefully out of its beta nappy).

Commentators are hoping it will come packing improved usability, as the software still has a lot of growing to do.

Rumoured to be included in the iCloud revamp is the ability to sync videos and photos, the Wall Street Journal, reports.
