Yeah, had to see you Apple fanboy's reaction to the "new" additions to iOS that already are on Android. It's so fascinating, like watching animals in the zoo begging for food from the zookeepers.

I like the Facebook integration. Looks like you can just have Siri update your status.

Eww, I don't want my future car to come with a Siri button. Hell, I don't want it to have anything to do with Apple...

3GS still supported. That's 4 full years of support. Also a lot of nice features for Chinese customers. It should help the iPhone's growth there.

great news for iOS 6... good job apple for listening to your users.

Sure android has most of this stuff but its not about "doing something android isn't" its about adding these features so that they don't interfere with the user experience.

i can BET that none of these 200+ features will cause lag or reduce battery life. thats the point about iOS... i'm fine with them not being 1st in everything anymore. as long as it works flawlessly thats whats gonna keep your users happy and loyal.

Resounding "meh."

Some cool features, but nothing killer. The navigation app sounds okay, but nothing that beats Google navigation. Also, the Facebook integration in the App store is already existent in the ability to plus one stuff in Android Market.

Snig, its not about them trying to blow android out the water... its about them bringing new features to their users... people who've had iphone since 2007 never had facebook integration or turn by turn navigation...

i dont believe WWDC was about converting android blackberry or windows phone users. its about adding features to an OS that didnt have it before. #simple

The only people who would be excited by this are iOS users who never had these functions before. Just look at how Taco is practically pissing his pants over Apple Maps.

For everyone else it's just "meh, I already have it."

exactly my point...lol

i came from android (evo 3d) to the i4s...

its just cool to see them add some extra things to the OS that the competition has currently been using.

nothing wrong with that in my opinion... you gotta do something to keep your customers if not the iphone will easily become a blackberry/palm device. old news...

Um, Apple didn't bring anything new to the table...Maybe to their own table, but to the mobile industry table? Nope, nothing new here.
