Been waiting ages for location services, maps e.t.c to arrive in the UK
Will it finally happen now?
I hope so. It's about time really. Although I was under the impression Apple are (were) waiting for a company in the UK to provide all the data?
Well, now that Apple is launching its own mapping solution with iOS6, I'd expect the location features to come to English (UK) and other Siri languages.
A lot of people are worried about UK mapping features going missing from iOS6 if Apple launches it's own solution.
How so? I'm not questioning you, I'm genuinely intrigued.
I suppose there is every possibility that if their own maps app has turn by turn navigation, it'll be like Siri's business search and be US only.
Because Apple are very US centric and their new services tend to reflect that when first released.
Yeah, but it'd be folly to believe that their new maps app would only have the US and Canada covered to begin with.
I would fully expect it to have some form of UK maps but wouldn't be too surprised if at first it lacked advanced features found in the US version. I might be totally wrong though.
It's useless on the 4S in the UK...No shopping results etc. Even if Apple only make THAT part work here it would be something...As it stands, it's a gimmick I played with a while...I use it to send the odd text and email, but invariably use the keyboard.
Got to love the days building up to WWDC, come 5:55pm on Monday night I'll be refreshing Safari like a hyperactive child who's eaten too many Smarties.
I'll have one eye on the WWDC updates and another on the ensuing chaos ripping through our forums.
Had Siri turned off more or less since getting the 4S, i think UK owners have been pretty patient really. Let's hope there are not too many US specific (Beta) features in IOS6.
I use the international locations tweak as a workaround.
It will indeed soon be time to run for safety....A few more tech threads and I'm chickening out and going "In there"
When does it start uk time?
6PM tonight...The Mods will be busy ditching Football spam beforehand too...
And watching the football too.
Still waiting for Facetime over 3G, so i wouldn't hold my breath.
One game I just don't get...I guess I will be reporting a lot of streaming links then?
Google and Bing were very US-centric at launch.
They still are to some extent.
