    I know, I know, tons of threads about iOS 6 already but hear me out. Recently a couple of articles got me interested.

    Again, just posting what I want to see if only the stock apps get upgraded.

    iOS 6 mostly focused on stock appse
    Facebook integration in iOS 6
    iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore redesign
    Tim Cook talks about Siri and Facebook

    These have been hinted for iOS 6:
    ● Siri improvements
    ● Facebook integration
    ● New Maps app with 3D maps
    ● Update to Camera and Photos app
    ● Photo sharing and commenting
    ● Video sync
    ● Improved Multitasking (probably for the new iPad only)
    ● iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore redesign

    Now features for stock apps I think will/should be in iOS 6. There might be some that aren't stock apps, but I still think should be included. Lets start with those features.

    According to 9to5Mac there's going to be a whole new Apple-made App too. Whether or not it's a stock app, I'm not sure

    I think the new stock app is a "iCloud" managment app.

    Wouldn't mind them adding delivery reports for SMS. And giving you the option of HD or SD when using the YouTube app.

    Any chance it could be a Podcast only app?

    Music app has limited podcast functionality, no automatic updates and stuff.

    Also Apple made iTunes U a separate app so I think Apple could make podcasts into a separate app.

    They should also make Newsstand not a stock app.

    If you want these apps you can download them on the App Store

    The only medication to a stock app that I really care about would be the addition of AdBlock Plus to Mobile Safari.
