iPhone-5-design

7 years ago, Steve Jobs and Co. put their hope in a completely new device. The computer company designed and manufactured a mobile device that was introduced as a mobile phone, music player and internet communication device. It was an uphill battle that will have them enter a very competitive, congested and hungry industry filled with companies with deep pockets. Not to mention the constant barrage of headaches dealing with carriers. Something that Apple had never done. This device was named the iPhone.

iOS6

During the WWDC keynote on Monday, Apple, along with every major Apple tech blog, made the world aware of iOS 6. There were Map updates, Facebook integration, and Siri can do a lot more, just to name a few.

What they failed to mention, is when the fun really starts.

Hundreds of changes have been recorded already and we wanted to give you a bit more of what we have found playing around with iOS 6.

Below is a list, and it’s just that, a list, that will change with each beta we see from Apple. Continue Reading…
