The Ios 6 Does it Live Up to the Hype?

With Apple's announcement of its new Operating System for the iPad and iPhone known as iOS 6 coming this Fall 2012 there is much to consider in what exactly the tech giant is planning in regards on not just apps but how much more efficient the New iPad will be with the upgrade.

With the iOS 6, be ready for a whole new batch of built-in apps for the new iPad with one app in particular, (you may have heard of this app which made the iPhone 4S standout from its predecessors in a big way!) making appearance just for the new iPad.

Here are few of the apps to look out for with the iOS 6:

  • Siri - The app that helped turn the iPhone 4S from an everyday smart phone to a portable verbal responsive assistant comes to the iOS 6 for iPad. To put it simply, Siri is a verbal command app just ask it a question and it replies back with a verbal reply.Without any typing or eye contact with the screen whatsoever which comes in handy when on the road great alternative to texting and driving which I don't condone to even attempt.
  • Maps - Think of this app as a fully functional GPS all rolled into one, Maps gives you precisely that maps of destinations you seek to have a in-depth visual of the part of the world you wish to glimpse at or just road by road turns to find your way enjoy a great GPS feature for the new iPad.
  • Passbook - This nifty app works to present codes to scanners whether a boarding pass,movie tickets,coupons you name it is quite useful for those on the go. People who love to travel could really take to this new app but I recommend this app more for the iPhone rather the iPad, personally I don't want to lug my 9.7 inch screen iPad and hold it up to every scanner that I meet now while an iPhone something you usually take with you everywhere can more easily adapt to this app.
  • Accessibility - A step from Apple with the iOS 6 to bring the iPad and iPhone experience more user-friendly for the handicapped and disabled to work around the many features integrated with the devices.

You can expect the iOS 6 to include extra features to already introduced built-in apps, FaceTime will have more of a broaden reach by working with cellular networks including Wi-fi,full Facebook integration with your iPad on and off the Facebook app is a given, and with so much more on the horizon the new iPad's iOS 6 something to look forward to.
