Which new feature do you like most in iOS 6?

0. phoneArena 11 Jun 2012, 15:06 posted on

Apple lifted the veil over the sixth edition of iOS today, and, while it doesn't bring any major interface changes, it does introduce over 200 novelties, big and small, so we wanted to ask you which of the announced features you like the most...

Where can we find a list of the entire 200 new features??? All I have seen is the same list of 15-20 new features posted on every web site. Every site just repeats the same list. So where can we see all 200??

You'll be waiting a long time because there are not 200 new features. I'm not impressed at all, all of these features have been on Android for the past two years. I'm beginning to think that IOS updates are nothing but jailbreak patches.

That's good for you, but what about the other disappointed 93% of android users who don't have the update?

Are you serious? Android has had all these features a few versions ago, so why would anyone using an Android phone be bitter that their phones can do much more than an iPhone. Man you need to wake up and smell the coffee. Apple is behind the game and that's all there is to it. I guarantee that this so called new iPhone won't be anything monumental either.

Don't need updates if I already can do all this "new" stuff from Apple. Maybe you're bitter you're stuck with a tiny 3.5 screen and need to feel more special like Android :)

WIth FaceTime now allowed over cellular ... 3GS users will need to pack a mirror around so folks can see them?

Apple can call it the iMirror ;)

I must confess disappointed with the slow progress, in some features we all would like to have natively rather than resorting to Cydia store.

Holly mother...another crap and just giving hypes like they are on the Moon lolzzzz...Come on Apple do something on your own. After iPhone 4 this is your 2nd biggest failure in the market.
I am selling my iPhone 4 because I don't want this crapy Siri on my phone. Thumbs up who are selling their iPhones and going to buy S3 or Lumia 900? Sorry Apple your days are over.

hahahaha just because you dont like the updates "apple's days are over" bwahahaha

dont let the android trolls and users in here corrupt your mind sir... apple isn't going ANYWHERE... these updates are HUGE for the apple community... the reason why we are upset because we read tech sites everyday and probably used other OS's than apple and we expect the use of new technology.

the rest of the HUGE world hasnt...

Mate you are on of them who uses these products to show off n stuff like that. I own an iPhone since 2007. Moreover I can see the frustration through your words how disappointed you and every another sheep like you in this world is after this release.

Hhahahahahahah you are so right it is a huge update for just apple community not for us. Because I highly prefer windows over your s**tty MAC and I highly prefer Android and Windows phone over these dead Icons.You won't understand because you are not a technical person lolzzzzzz

one. the iphone 4 isnt getting siri.

two. no one said you had to use it if you had it anyway.

three. if the iphone 4 was such a huge failure, why did you purchase one?

four. apples days are not over. idiot people who dont know anything about the other OS will assume that the iphone is the first to do it. and if the rumors are true about it having a bigger screen and being 4g then im sure people will go lady gaga and buy it.

One:- You are one of those sheep who are hired by Apple to comment on these Tech sites.

Two:- I didn't say iPhone 4 is the failure. I said ios6 is the 2nd failure after 4s.

Three:- You would be the one who owns a Mac, an iPhone and iPad and just got frustrated with the s**tty UI.

Four:- You are not getting a person to whom you can sell your crap.

Five:- It doesn't matter what they are bringing in the near future whatever they are going bring would be copy of lumia or S3 lolzzzzzzz....

Sorry mate no offense they have lost one of their customer lolzz...

I don't think you realize, but iOS users are very outnumbered on this site. What's the point of commenting when you're goong to get marked down by 100 Android users and then attacked in the comments section. Use your brain

I'm actually pretty excited for Passbook. I think it's a great concept. The rest was meh, I can do everything and most everything better on my gnex. I was actually more excited about Mountain Lion's features. Dictation looks cool (I hate siri, but something that will just listen to you and not respond is alright in my book!). Overall the press conference was good. But they started high with the new retina macbook, and fizzled out with iOS 6. Just my opinion :)

Oh yeah I'm sure apple heads will be so happy for all these incremental USELESS add on's. This in the real world is nothing more than a JOKE. But these cult folks are so LOST in the apple kingdom that they will think that these are so big. Nothing will ever beat Google Maps, Navigation, or anyother related google service especially Gmail. Apple is just spinning in one big circle and digging a hole for it's self. Look around folks android has bypassed apple years ago in so many ways it's actually comical.

so true mate. Just look at Apple or their CEO they don't feel shame when they present these features on the stage..lolzzzz

And every time they there are around 200 new features available. Which is nothing but how you can access your camera through different options and how you can use your volume rocker button 2 take a photo...I have been trying 2 find those 200 features from last 2 years from ios 5. What I have found so far is what I have mentioned earlier. lolzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Thanks to all comments and I can see most of here are android lovers :) or anti-apple :D, this anti just dont get it, I just want to add more some spice here. the more people who make critiques the more you make the brand more famous, look everything you said or fighting for something, its make no sense its just making the issue more hot, and for sure they are happy, and for you lovers come on you got your Iphone, your outnumbered here. stop fighting nothing will change, apple already got what they want, as well as Android, Now understand since the version Android cupcake 1.5 release on 2009 after they got jealous and got an Idea on IOS that was release on 2007, we should thank for that, more updates was release, this 2 guys are on trouble. updating and fighting to give more whatever features they can give to the confused and hot consumers, and that is good, at the end you dont realize that you are already getting those benefits. So let us continue and enjoy the war of comments (did I say stop fighting :) just want to get your attention) we are just few here in billion, lets make it more hot and bring everything to let this 2 tech giant work, for the money we spend beacuse I am sure they are already enjoying our money. That's all, enjoy! give more comments and fight for what you want.
