iOS 6 Features – Comparisons amid iPhone 5 Speculations

11 Sep. 2012 Mobile App

Fire ignited by the rumors of the latest release of iPhone was further fueled-up by Apple’s September 12 invitation with 5 as a shadow. Though there had been a lot of speculation regarding the name, the invite has made people zero-in down on iPhone 5 as the next iPhone. So let us consider the name of the next iPhone to be iPhone 5.

iPhone 5 bundled with the latest operating system iOS 6 is going to be in the top of everyone’s wish-list.

Some of the amazing iOS 6 features are

  • Passbook- It enables you to carry electronic passes for plane travel. It notifies you if there’s a change in your boarding location so that you be at the right terminal, at the right time.
  • Phone app- It allows you to receive a call, reject call with messages, call back later by setting a reminder.
  • New Safari app- The Smart App Banners tell you the available iOS apps in the webpage you are visiting.
  • iOS 6 mail- Add your boss or your dear ones in the VIP list to get notification on the lock screen whenever they mail you.
  • Siri- Siri in iOS 6 now understands more languages. Whether you want to know the latest movie releases, scores and statistics of your favorite players, make reservations on the best of restaurants etc. Though it would take over 11 months, Siri is now also going mobile. The new Eyes Free feature will insert a siri button on the steering wheels of high-end cars.
  • These are just a few applications, there are many more applications and upgrades to the existing applications with the iOS 6.

    You are incorrect with the specs on Windows 8. Here are the specs:

    1) Real Multi-tasking, not pseudo
    2) Includes visusal voicemail (already on WP7.5)
    3) Wireless cloud back up is YES with skydrive and 7GB Free storage.

      Hi Allan,
      Thank you for pointing that out. Honest mistake on our part. We have made the necessary changes.

    I’m sure that Apple will be well aware that it doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel to succeed and iPhone5 will certainly sustain in the “market” till the new one arrives but the kind of hype created by apple for iPhone5 is yet to be justified. However, Apple had done that in the past and I am sure it will not disappoint us this time too.
