iOS 6 release date set for Fall, beta available today
Apple unveiled iOS 6 today, and as is probably only with Apple in the industry - it makes the beta available to developers as early as today, and says the iOS 6 release date is set for this Fall. 

The new iOS 6 will support:
- devices starting from the iPhone 3GS and later, 
- and the second generation iPad, the new iPad and upcoming models. 

It packs 200 new features, among which huge improvements to Siri, deeper Facebook integration, tweaks to basic functionalities like the phone app, photo stream and camera app.

You can learn more about new iOS features here while flexing your fingers if you’re a developer, or keeping your fingers crossed iOS 6 is coming earlier in the Fall!

wha, wait, you're serious? You're excited watching the Androidification of iOS! I thought you were being /s but then again you are using an iPhone (I assume), so all of this must be new to you. Breathe deep, use a paperbag if you must, your apple brain will eventually process all these new features that I was enjoying on my Droid 1 in 2009....

My Droid 1 was a good phone, I use it as an alarm clock now. My current phone is a RAZR and it wipes the floor with the 4s I returned for it.

You guys are all being really annoying with this whole copying thing. Android did not create Facebook integration. Android is an open platform, and thus Facebook is the one that the developed the deep integration. Thank Android for being an open platform, but thank Facebook for the integration. Now Facebook integration is on iOS. I'm sure Facebook wanted to do this a LONG time ago, but Apple never allowed it until now.

turn by turn navigation? Once again Android didn't create that and also iPhone had plenty of alternatives already available in the app store.

There's nothing that was legitimately copied from Android. I think you guys already know that though.

@danieru.05: According to Jobs, concerning Apple stealing ideas from others, I quote him: "We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas..." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW0DUg63lqU

* Voice control has always been a part of Android.
* Pull down notification, Android
* Touch screen phones, Microsoft

Apple is hardly original!!! What they are is incredibly fantastic at marketing! I like some of the ways Apple improves on things like bringing multi-touch to touch screen phones.
