Apple showcased few features for iPhone and iPad that seem exciting and useful at the same time. These features unveiled in the WWDC 2012 will arrive this fall, in iOS6.
In particular, two apps that Apple introduced; namely Passbook app and the new 3D Maps app were just spectacular. The two important features of the new addition in the family of iOS were introduced by Apple’s senior vice president of iOS software, Scott Forstall.
The new “Passbook” app, as per Forstall, is really interesting and quite handy. You can store digital movie tickets, boarding passes, reward cards, barcodes and much more. The templates make it easier for the developers to fully explore Passbook. Forstall claimed on Monday during the WWDC 2012 keynote that Passbook is the best way to get all of your passes and tickets together.
The biggest and best feature still, though, is the new Maps app that is bound to provide you with the most unique experience. As the rumours suggest, Apple seems to be getting rid of the Google Maps totally in exchange of their own version. The feature is supposed to have a turn-by-turn navigation guide integrated with Siri, having voice directions and a breath-taking 3D flyover mode. Other features of the Maps app include crowdsourced traffic information.
The new Guided Access feature of iOS 6 will be quite helpful for disabled users, and will also enable teachers and parents to disable hardware buttons to lock an iOS device into a single app.
The iOS 6 will run on the iPad 2, the new iPad, iPhone 3Gs and higher and the fourth generation iPod touch…
