Features Of iOS 6 – Get Ready For Amazing iPhone Application Development
An Advanced Siri
Siri got revamped with the iOS 6. Do more with Siri (which now understands more languages), like knowing match scores, player stats or booking movie tickets, getting reviews and reserving tables at your favorite restaurants. But the best part is that you can open apps and update your status on Facebook or post your tweets on Twitter.
With Facebook integration in iOS 6, apps are surely going to get a major boost. All you need to do, is sign in to the Facebook site only once and you’ll be able to carry on your activities with ease. For example, you can share a photo right from the Camera or Photos app in the device, share your location from Maps or post your scores from the Game Center itself. Also, Facebook events will be integrated into the Calendar app and the Facebook profile information of your friends will be integrated into Contacts.
The Photo Streams feature in iOS 6, allows you to share your photos with your friends and do much more. For example, you can select photos from the Photos app and share it with your friends over iCloud. They will get those photos instantly in their Photos app or iPhoto; they can also like your photos or comment on them. Even those friends, who don’t own an iOS device, can view the same photos on the web. Interesting feature, isn’t it?
The iOS 6 Face Time works on both – cellular networks and Wi-Fi. This makes it possible for users to receive Face Time calls from anywhere they want. It is device agnostic – which means users can make and receive Face Time calls not only on their iPhone devices, but their iPad devices as well, using their phone number.
Safari Web Browser
There is a significant change in Safari Browser; it now offers even a better browsing experience to the iOS users. It saves web pages in Reading List, which enables users to read the articles, blogs or other pages they had saved. All these are available to the users online. Also, thanks to the iCloud Tabs, users can browse pages on one device and continue going through the same tabs on other device.
So, these were some of the major features and functionalities of iOS 6, based upon which developers can create some of the most innovative apps.
