Besides a new Maps application, Apple expected to overhaul its Camera and Photos apps in iOS 6
By now more than one source has confirmed that Apple will introduce a new Maps app in iOS 6 that doesn't use Google's technology, and has 3D elements to it. Whether or not it will also offer free offline voice-guided navigation, where Google seems to be heading, is unclear at the moment.

Analyst Shawn Wu of Stern Agee reiterated that expectation in a memo for clients, but also adds that the photo and camera apps will be overhauled as well.

Photos and videos will receive more sharing options in iCloud, as the Wall Street Journal suggested from its own sources a while ago. As for the camera app, it will possibly introduce a richer interface, making iOS users less reliant on solutions like Instagram and other 3rd party software from the App Store.

They will invent a magical new way to make your pictures look cool and share them with your friends. Call it "iGram".

Then they'll say it's ridiculous when they get sued.

Let's hope there's atleast a 12MP camera on board!

Here's to hoping too it can convert their videos from 1080P to say 720P (or others) too.

I had to drop $5 (not too much of a big deal) for iMovie for my new iPad, because a 4 minute video was half a gig with 1080P. I got iMovie to convert it to 720P and cut the file size to about three fifths so it would not take as long to post.

Either that, or allow a setting where you can select 1080P, 1080i, 720P, etc prior to recording.

Apple won't allow you to select resolution before recording? How typically Applish ....

Now this is innovation. This is something that makes sense. I can see Apple's vision on this one.

yea, its called "take more features from android and call it innovation!".

Im glad for you guys to finally get some more of the features that we have been enjoying for years, but when you get them, remember they came from Android . :)

Remember everything done by Android has been done by Blackberry, Oracle, Microsoft, and so on.

I rather have real features than the half baked stuff in Android.

Wonder if Apple is going to rip off any recent innovations like RIMs Time Machine thing on the camera.

Oh iCan already see it when Apple Maps screw up... "You're going to the wrong place!", "It's still in Beta", "You can't go there!", "Why would you want to go there?!"

Apple is king. Android can never catch up! They are lightyears ahead of android.
