Well, they gotta give you some reasons for buying the new iPhone, when the old iPhone 4 is still a perfectly capable device and will, probably, not be that much different than what's introduced this Fall. Taller ain't that much better.

Well... how do the street names and business names compare to Google Maps. Plus are the 3D buildings available for everywhere or just select cities?

Maps is definitely still in beta and the 3D doesn't appear to work in any major city I've tried - including NYC and London.

Only main roads and city names appear at first and as you zoom in the roads start to show. I prefer the Google way of doing this but I guess it will grow on me. I hope that Google will release a map app too.

Can someone check to see if 3D is available in Ghana or Togo? Also does turn by turn work outside the US?

Turn by turn works in the UK. 3D works everywhere i.e. the map tilts but there are no 3D buildings/terrain that I can find anywhere

Can't see Persian in the keyboard list, and in the language list all languages are written in their language so I'm not sure.

A guy/girl on Reddit named herpderp020 posted this about some small (And really good things in iOS 6).


I figured it would be nice to make a thread to share some hidden features or features that weren't really talked about iOS 6 Beta at WWDC. Some things I noticed:

Downloading an app no longer pushes you back to the home screen.
An app that has been updated will get a blue ribbon overlaid in the corner that says "New" (similar to a newsstand app).
In the app store if an app is already installed the button will say "Open" instead of "Installed" and pressing it will open the app on your phone.
In iMessage you can set the caller ID for replying and for starting a new conversation (they can be different).
Music app has been changed to look more like the iPad Music app.
iTunes/App Store apps have been changed.
The status bar changes blue/light gray now if the status bar of an app is blue/black respectively.
iPad gets a really nice default clock app.
You can choose to show an iMessage alert from everyone or just numbers/emails you have in your Contacts.app
Bluetooth on/off toggle now directly at the top of the Settings.app next to Wifi toggle
Edit:

Photos.app now uses a Photo Stream tab to access your photo stream instead of doing it as an album.
Share buttons now use a grid like way to select where you want to share (iMessage, email, twitter, facebook, etc) instead of popping up as a list.
In the iPad Clock app the temperature of a city shows up in the World Clocks view in addition to the time in that city.

If you are using iCloud in ios 6, you can sign in to the developer.icloud.com for those leaked features a few months back.

Thanks for posting this. I've bolded the ones I am most pleased to see. So glad the really annoying behaviour of returning to home screen when you download an app is gone! Also happy to see the share list has been updated as it was starting to look ugly with all the additions over the years.

When you download a new app, it has a little NEW badge next to it, just like how newsstand does.

Clock app for iPad.

Settings app icon is different.

I think these have all been said, but that's all I've noticed so far

To swipe between different lists in Reminders, you have to swipe the name of the list at the top, no more dots to represent pages (like springboard) anymore. Also the in-app "settings" type view is quite different, with a calendar at the bottom and the list of lists in the center.

Pics?

If you send a photo to facebook from the photos app, can you comment on it and tag people? Can you set the audience for the pic? Same with sharing from Safari.

Doesn't look nearly as good as Google Maps. They spent a lot of time figuring out how to get the labels just right, what font size to use, and how to add emphasis with a border around the letters, and how to place the label to not obstruct important stuff. They are all very subtle techniques, but when you really compare how Google does it to other mapping services, (including the new iOS maps), Google labels are much, much better. Hopefully Apple will improve over time, but I will miss the clarity of Google maps, street view, and integrated walking/biking directions. Really hope they release an iOS app, but I doubt they will. Will probably just be an app that is a front end for the web version of google maps.

I'm enjoying the Apple maps much more. Loads faster for me.
