1. Siri
Siri keeps being updated. The new version on iOS 6 does sports scores and stats. You ask what was the score for the Giants and she will reply that they were downed by the Rangers. It will also tell you about batting averages.

Siri is being integrated with Yelp and OpenTable. You could ask for a good italian restaurant near you and she will tell you about the best ones using Yelp information and allow you to make a reservation with your voice using OpenTable.

It's also bringing movies with IMDB for reviews and information, and Fandango for tickets. You can ask for a movie that stars your favorite star or director, and she will find them for you. The result screen is quite nice, with integrated Rotten Tomatoes ratings. I wonder how much more useful this will make Siri.

Siri is also being updated to other languages. They are adding Canadian French, Spanish for Spain, Mexico and the US. Also Italian in Italy and French, German and Italian dialects for Switzerland. Plus Asian languages: Korean plus Mandarin and Cantonese in China. Siri will be available on the iPad.

2. Facebook integration

Facebook is now completely integrated with the iPhone. You will be able post to Facebook from Apple's apps, just like you can do with Twitter. That includes images directly from the Photos albums. Or location from Maps. It's even integrated with Siri. And the Calendar application, so birthdays and events are automatically synchronized at all times with Facebook.
The most interesting thing is that, as I said in the rumor round up, there will be an API for it, so every developer can enjoy the same Facebook services. This means that your favorite applications would be able to easily post things in Facebook or get Facebook information easily.
3. New Phone features

This is a welcomed surprise: they are updating the Phone application, which has remained almost frozen for all this time. I like this feature, which Nokia already had some years ago: you can reply automatically with a message when someone calls you. The phone will show you a list of messages like "I'll call you later" or "I'm on my way" that you can click and automatically send while rejecting a call.

A new "Do Not Disturb" preference will turn off calls and messages at night. The neat thing is that notification will come but the phone will not sound or light up. I'm quite happy about this feature, because the lighting up can be quite annoying. Still, you can mark some phone numbers as important, which will allow them to disturb you at night.
On the other hand, if someone is calling you repeatedly and continuously, the new Phone app will push the call a.ssuming it is an emergency. This, I'm sure, will be misused several times.

4. New Facetime

The first big news is 3G support for Facetime. You will be able to call someone using Facetime over the 3G network. The quality will not be as good as Wi-Fi, but it will be supported.
Another neat feature of the new Facetime is that the device IDs are being unified. In iOS 6, when someone calls your phone number, you will be able to answer the call from your iPad or your Mac straight away. The ID unification will be the same with iMessage, which will hopefully fix the confusion. Sometimes users get messages in one device but not the other one.

5. New Safari

Safari is getting the live synchronization of tabs with Mountain Lion, so your browsing experience is unified across devices using iCloud. It also uses iCloud synchronization for an Offline Reading List, which allows you to read a story that you have marked to read later without a web connection. This is pretty neat for subway commuters and flights.
One of the best features, however, is the new support for web forms uploads. To me, it has always been so frustrating not to be able to upload a photo to a web site. Now you can click on the upload button, a Photo browser will appear, and you will be able to upload. I wonder if this service will also be available for other file types, like Pages documents.

6. Photo streams on iCloud

Now you can share your photos on streams. You can pick friends and they will be able to see any photos you uploads in a dedicated stream automatically. Everyone will also be able to comment on them. It's like creating private Instagram feeds on the Photos app.

7. Mail

Mail's Mailboxes have also been revamped for a new feature: VIPs. You can mark people as VIPs, and their emails will automatically go into a special folder. This is going to be the only folder I'm going to read from now on.

8. Passbook

This a new app. It will allow you to have all your tickets and coupons—airplanes, train, movies, concerts, gift cards, loyalty cards, whatever—in a single wallet. It's quite pretty and useful.

Can someone tell me what is "innovative" about this new IOS WITHOUT freaking out about android vs IOS. The only thing I see that Android doesn't already have is a siri update (which, if Samsung moves quickly, they will be at the same level as apple within 6 mpnths).

Not even trying to hate either, just want an honest answer from an Apple fan who can say oh this sh*t is innovative BECAUSE of (blank).

The problem with that question is, other than Passbook and Siri updates we don't know what else is new. Apple has stated that there are over 200 new features and Apple only talked about 9.



I will be getting the beta shortly and report back what I find.

unless they got something else up their sleeve, none of what they just unveiled is new.

Good. You can't leave Android. Once you're in, you're in.
