After figuring out our UDID’s, downloading the ipsw’s from Apple’s overloaded servers, and restoring our iDevices, boy do we have a treat for you.
Below you can find all of our favorite new features and more from iOS 6. Are you ready to see some pretty sweet upgrades?
Let’s get started with the updates to the Mail app. My biggest complaint overall about the Mail app was how hard it was to add photos to an email. Today with the announcement of iOS 6 that workflow just got easier.
To add a photo from within the Mail app, just hold and click “Insert Photo or Video”. Awesomesauce!
Another great but small addition to the Mail app would be the “recent” contacts. Such an easy way to pull up your most emailed friends. It’s the small things that make iOS what it is!
Moving into other areas and updates to our beloved iOS, we see the all to rumored Facebook integration hit home. Facebook is now tied into iOS 6 just like Twitter was within iOS 5.
While I am not the biggest user or fan of Facebook, this update will make a ton of folks happy. Check out the screens below for the integration.
Facebook is hidden in the Settings app but is easily setup with just your login info. Sign in with your User Name and Password. You can remember that right?
This screen is a scary one for those of us who love to keep our Gmail contacts in sync and tidy. Don’t worry, we can change these settings without any problems.
Always trying to get you to install the Facebook app. While I am NOT a fan of the Facebook app, it would allow for easier response to your friends and family via Facebook.
Once signed in you can turn the integration off for your Calendar and Contacts. This is off on my iDevices for sure.
Notification Center has been updated to allow the Tweeting and Facebooking (is that a word now) straight from Notification Center. A pretty slick and super simple way to get the word out fast on what is happening during your day.
Pretty darn sweet huh! I have used it a ton already and am loving the quickness it offers.
The next update that is worthy of drawing attention to are the new sharing options from within the Photo App. It has always been a bit clunky to share your photos, well not anymore.
Can it get any easier?
Maps have gotten a huge update, watch out Google! With the addition of 3D view, overhead view and turn by turn revamped, this is a great way to see where you are going!
Can you tell where I live? Baltimore is a pretty solid city, I would recommend you live somewhere else such as New York or somewhere cool.
Wrapping up our hands on I wanted to touch on one last area, there are a ton more, but I love that the AppStore has gotten an update. While the app itself is extremely slow and still wrapped up in the web, the style is gorgeous.
Well, after all of these sexy screen shots there is no reason as to why you would want to stay on iOS 5.1.1. Grab the latest version, even in beta, of this gorgeous OS.
So need help upgrading? We are here for you! What do you think of the latest additions to the OS?
