I personally would love these features if only Apple were not being the biggest hypocrites in the world and trying to sue everyone for "copying".

But the sheep will never admit that Apple copies and steals from others. Because in a sheep's world, Apple is god and god can do no wrong. Follow blindlessly, without question.

Wow sound like Apple did it again as they did with iOS 5. They added more Android features and now call it a new iOS!! Too funny.

The title should read *iOS 6: the new features that were already in Android but were late to the game as usual

anyway, it is funny how many of these features were in android, but Google and the manufacturers did a poor job of informing consumers of it.

what I've been saying all this time! If android WAS promoting its FEATURES more and more and how "It Also just works " It will be no doubt the king in all the market.... Google and the manufacturers NEED to promote their stuff more and more, after using continued dictation I have to say its awesome... where is the promotion on that? and so on and on.... all android miths exist because there is a lack in telling people more about the OS and every update

thats the different management styles of the OS. Google is very hands off. They let the manufactuers promote the product instead of doing it directly like Apple. And honestly, with android's 900k daily sales, they are doing pretty darn good.

We are the super educated minority in this field. We expect more. the masses get told what they need to know.

@ downphoenix:

... and Nokia did even worse.

Or even Microsoft. They completely ditched a smartphone OS with potential for an iOS walled garden copy with widg... I mean tiles!

Actually crapsung is the ONLY one doing good.

Because

a) they flood the market with consumer products not just phones. To create the illusion that all there is is Samsung.

b) currently also spend a signicant amount of money into advertising (e.g. that SGSIII).

So they're crap but their good? How does that make any f**king sense? Do you lack basic logic?

So all listed new features are just catching up with Android huh...knew that already!

I am not surprised. This should be expected from Apple. Nothing revolutionary. Never. Just playing catch up once again.

And let's face it, siri is indeed useless. I can do everything myself much faster than opening up siri, talking into it, and letting the mentally challenged assistant process the information before it finishes the task.

The thumbs down is because some folks just have to vote down anything seen as negative about Apple...lol.

I gave Apple a compliment....and still got a thumbs down. Shows the intelluct and maturity of iFans.

lol... so much for reading comments from people who have good things to say about the WWDC event... lol

i'm pretty sure they are intimidated to say anything...

SGS3 release articles had 1 troll which was banded that same day "RIP Eaxvac" lol

but this is ridiculous... every WWDC post is full of dead horse beating comments... you guys don't read the comments before you post? 9 / 10 there's gonna be someone saying the same thing you want to say...lol

yes Apple has implented some features that android phones already can perform... NEXT!!!

Lol. Android's iris can already launch an app by Voice commands.

Why even mention an android product that's Siri spelled backwards lol

because it just taps into voice commands, which is the android native voice app. Most of these new siri functions are not new to android. Thats the point.

That and Iris was created by devs within 8 hours if I remember right, some competition El Goog cooked up for funsies.
