Which new feature do you like most in iOS 6?

Which new feature do you like most in iOS 6?
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.

The big one is, of course, Maps, which in iOS 6 is divorcing Google's navigational software completely for Apple's in-house solution, but we also got Siri learning new tricks, some new and useful apps like Passbook for organizing your travel, shopping and entertainment tickets, coupons and passes, as well as upgrades to default apps like Safari, Mail, Phone and Photos.

A ton of new accessibility features got introduced with iOS 6, and also a number of enhancements for China like Siri learning Mandarin and Cantonese, and Baidu search plus Pinyin writing. Which one of those newcomers do you fancy?

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??

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

they need to realize that their phone without updates is twice as good as apple's even with updates.

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 ;)

"Deep Facebook Integration" Hmmmmm F*#& that, my iPod Touch 4th is going to have to be happy with iOS 5, I'm not going to allow Facebook to "deep penetrate" or whatever my iPod Touch, it forcecloses enough as it is!

Where's the "clogging up my Phone Arena page with half the articles on the front page being about iOS 6 and when Google does their thing later this month we might have like 4 articles tops on it" option?

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...
