    On the Apple Keynote there were presented 10 new features in iOS6 and over the past months we've seen some more features as well, however does anyone have a list with all 200 new things that iOS 6 will bring?

    no kidding, i think as consumers Apple should be held accountable and forced to list all of the feature changes.

    They usually do when the download is released.

    I think beta 1-3 had 132 new features when a member counted them for me

    I believe they count things like "new twitter icon" or "bluetooth option moved in settings" as "new features".

    There's no way that there are 200 new actual user features.

    Did Apple ever claim these 200 new features were all for the users? I don't think so. But for the developers...

    Yes, Apple actually did. Here is a screenshot from Scott Forstall's presentation at WWDC: http://i.imgur.com/vZBli.jpg

    Apple uses the term feature incredibly loosely. I'm not sure anybody else would call most of the things they call "features" as such.

    I thought it was 200 new features for Mountain Lion. I don't recall the same being said about iOS. But, meh, I hardly paid attention during that part of the keynote.

    Nope, that's the iOS part, Forstall is iOS only, they had Federighi for OS X

    Regardless, it's over 200 new things, whether they are distinctive features or parts thereof.

    Well, those 200 new "user" features were also unveiled at the Word Wide Developers Conference.

    Some of those 200 features might be things a developer could leverage to enhance or create user-facing features.

    iOS6 sucks compared to iOS5. There's barely any new features. I thought maps would be a realistic google street view style navigation. Nope. I was wrong.

    Hopefully Apple might have kept a couple of killer features for the presentation next week, but yeah, iOS6 is pretty underwhelming.

    Although there are a couple of real-world useful features they are catching up on.

    iOS6 just seems like bug fixes and a few enhancements just reading about it. I havent used iOS6, but hopefully Apple reveals more on the 12th.

    iOS 6 has plenty of stuff that will be taken advantage of by creative developers. It's largely a "Polish" release but there's some good stuff in there for everyone.

    There's really not much missing once you realize that

    A. Widgets are not going to happen on a larger scale than NC
    B. There will be no file system app

    It's the same thing as with Mountain Lion 200 features: They mention iCloud integration and new sharing button once for every app so that's like 20/200 features right there. :rolleyes:
