What’s new in ios 6?
Apple ios 6 – new features
On the surface nothing much appears to have changed in the new ios 6, but if we take a closer look we can see some great new additions. Google maps has been replaced by Apple Maps. Siri has been updated and now works well in the UK and FaceTime operates over 3G. All these extras sound great but are older devices getting any of the benefits?
Here is a look at what’s available on your Apple device.
Here is a simple guide to ios 6 functionality:
Accessibility - Makes the iphone more disability friendly.
