iOS 6 may bring photo/video sharing to iCloud

iOS 6 may bring photo/video sharing to iCloud
Apple has waded very slowly and very very carefully into the world of social, but sources are saying that the next version of iOS is going to also bring an update to iCloud which will allow for user sharing of photos and videos. The Wall Street Journal reported today that this functionality may be coming, at least according to "people familiar with the matter". 

Unfortunately, details are slim. The report says that iCloud will be adding the ability to share photos and videos with others via iCloud, and also allow for commenting on shared items. There is no reported integration with any outside social networks, so it's unclear if photos and video would be able to be shared on Twitter (we'd say it's likely), Facebook (possible), or Google+ (yeah, right!). 

iCloud is also said to be getting an update to allow users to view Notes and Reminders through the web portal. Of course, we'll likely get all this info at WWDC in just under a month.

I am not expecting ios 6 too bring mich seeing how good ios 5 already is and all the changes it brought. The iphone 4s was more about improved software i am expecting the iphone 5 to be a big change on the hardware front. Maybe they will bring some small things like a verision of widgets updates to siri, icloud, notification bar, and an even further enhanced lockscreen with more functionalties. And before everyone says that apple is copying android bringing widgets to the game even further copying android with ios 6 less not forget apple has had widgets on the mac before android has had widgets. I'm thinking they will bring widgets as they are trying to bring ios and osx closser together.

I'm quite bored with the IOS interface! I hope they do something to liven it up a bit!

This is probably a few leaked features, Apple doesn't really jump a whole number for a few minor enhancements. As Apple is good with keeping a tight lip on their products.

So iOS 6 is adding even more features that Android already has. Maybe we'll even see widgets and face unlock too.

So Android have copied iOS wholesale back on Fyoro/Gingerbread/ICS and now fandroids are claiming that iOS 6 will copy iOS 5? What a joke.
