    This will be a front page story soon, but I called it. I said Maps will the biggest feature in ios 6. It's long overdue for a revamp.

    Turn-by-turn is what I meant in my original comment. The current implementation is not sufficient.

    i wouldn't mind a fancy new Maps app but i seriously hope it's not the "main" new feature of iOS 6 (there are plenty of things they need to update/add.)

    but from the what I've seen this looks nice.

    I remain incredibly scared about this. The idea that Apple will build something, out of the door, that isn't quite inferior to Google Maps (especially outside of the US) is very concerning.

    You must be so proud.

    This needs to include turn-by-turn otherwise what is the point except to get further away from needing google.

    I feel the same way. The article ends by saying "those expecting major home screen changes or Android-like widgets might be disappointed…*briefly, anyway." Obivously they're suggesting they know more about iOS 6 than we do. I'm hoping that they're implying there'll be other impressive new features added, and not just a new mapping system.

    I really hope, and expect, Siri APIs for third party apps.

    I wouldn't mind a new Maps app, but I really hope that their chosen maps are better than the fugly ones in the new iOS iPhoto app. I honestly hate contour-based maps and hopefully its a flat street model like Google or Bing. Bing has the best-looking style in my opinion.
