What you want to know about new io6

Siri, which is the voice assistant on the iPhone 4S. With the new operating system io6, he also comes to the third-generation iPad. Apple previously designated the voice service as “beta”.

“There’s Siri for eight months on the market, but now it has learned what” Scott Forstall said at the WWDC keynote. As examples, Apple:

SiriDer iPhone owners can ask questions about basketball results, and Siri answers.
The restaurant recommendations were improved.
Siri even answer complex questions such as “Show me movies with Scarlett Johansson”

What it also works here in Europe, we will see. Even before the keynote Siri offered more opportunities in the U.S. than here.

Mind work also with us would: Siri can now more – namely also launch apps. The iPhone owners no longer has wild dig through the screens and folders, but can start applications on demand. Let’s hope that this is possible not only with Apple’s own applications.

In connection with car manufacturers Apple also wants to offer a button in the car to activate the language assistant.
Apple Maps with 3D buildings

The Maps app previously offered maps of Google. Apple now uses its own service. The screen shots and a video comparison with Google Maps look promising. Satellite images are also integrated. Individual cities are shown in stunning 3D views:

Apple Cards

Apple is thus also in mapping services in competition with Google and Microsoft – and even against the manufacturer of navigation software. Because the app is live instructions for navigation. And may, of course, more than the permitted apps from Nation and Co: running on the screen of the locked iPhone’s. Know how the iPhone maker has caught at Tom-Tom.

Passbook with the iPhone is the ticket

We know electronic tickets and vouchers already sufficient. Apple offers io6 now but to an app that will be a collection point for the tickets. Provider of tickets does not need to be developing more of its own software, but have access to a template.
Mail gets “pull to refresh”

Pull down the news feed to update the news: what is known from many apps is now available in e – finally!

Apple has the mail program on your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad donated a VIP function that runs over iCloud.
Telephoning is still

the phone function is still there, of course … Apple has come up with even something new: If a call, new buttons appear. With them, the called party can quickly respond by text message, for example: “I will call back later”. Just press a button.

And who wants to be reminded of a recall can also set up the with a single click. Here, time (“in an hour”) and localized (“when I go home”) memories possible.
Bluetooth Sharing for flexible connections
in the beta version of io6 Bluetooth-sharing was found. Apps can share data over the wireless link. It is hoped that this enables a connection to smart watches. The exact functionality is not yet known.

Also just a guess is that io6 will enable AirPlay Direct connection via Bluetooth.
io6 delivers 200 new features

A total of 200 new features Apple promises io6 – way so many, as it did for iOS 5 This can be quite small changes, but also interesting things like:

Lost an iPhone, an honest finder with the “Lost” mode will be informed how to reach the owner.
In “Single App Mode”, only a single application can be started. Designed for example, for use in schools, so no one can peek …
For autistic people, parts of the user interface are disabled.
Facebook is more integrated in the operating system.
With the cloud function Photostream images can be shared with friends.
Video calling with FaceTime now runs over the mobile network.

iPhone 3GS owners can look forward, not iPad 1 users

On the iPhone 3G can already not even iOS 5 installed. More relieved likely to be the owner of a 3GS: This will run io6th

The iPod touch is supported in its fourth generation. iPad 2 and third generation of course also – only the owner of the first iPads must remain out of the io6-circle outside.
io6: publication in autumn

io6 will appear officially in the fall – a more concrete indication, Apple has not yet made. The operating system would appear along with the iPhone 5 on 09/12/2012.

During the entire Apple community is waiting for the film versions of the life of Apple co-founder and technology visionary Steve Jobs, the waxworks museum Madame Tussauds Hong Kong has already been upgraded.

iPhone 5

As of Friday the 21 September 2012 began the official iPhone 5 launch. After several million are already in the end of the advance from the relevant mobile operators and also decided to Apple itself, it could be the toughest Apple fans do not take again this year in line at the Apple Store to take a seat. As of Tuesday the 18th September 2012 already the first tents were spotted before the Munich and Hamburg Apple Store. Worldwide, it did not look different. The Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is famous for its mythical figure. He noted after counting in the two largest Apple stores in the U.S. that the snakes in the previous year (iPhone 4S sales) have been longer by 83%. These figures confirm. The huge hype surrounding the latest Apple smartphone and world’s fastest The theme around the iPhone 5 queues we will then conclude with the still quite amusing Fauxpass the Fox News Channel 5 News. In search of exclusive sketches of the new iPhone 5, the news was based team on a very futuristic study of Aatma Studio, which on Youtube generated a huge number of clicks, so the top ended up in the search results and hence a corresponding place in the reporting of the Fox 5 Channels received.

On Wednesday, September 19, 2012 Item 3 clock in the morning, the lock time was given for the first iPhone 5 Reviews. The online world, the mirror, the image, the Süddeutsche Zeitung published the first and some more information on the new Apple iPhone. In summary, convinced the new 5 Series, most of the testers also represents the personal opinion that for an upgrade from the iPhone 4S do not think enough new features ready.

Scuff Gate

The first lucky the new iPhone 5 were given a day before the official launch. Who was delivered on 20 September already, ie it could test four days of the new Apple iPhone through its paces. So it happened quite quickly but also to the curious “Scuff Gate” reports. Apple has reportedly shipped partially damaged equipment to the preorder. During the discussions, more or less underground ran, grabbed the repair team from iFixit the “Scuff Gate” Thoughts on new and admitted that it in some black iPhone 5 models can lead to a rapid deterioration in the anodized aluminum frame. Parallel to this report reached the first pictures from German climes the World Wide Web, the iPhone also models with lightweight “chipping” on the frame showed. An apple news reader, was also affected and immediately contacted the Apple Hotline. Without hesitation here all the levers were set in motion to initiate an immediate return. Sascha already anticipates tomorrow with his new replacement unit. Current speculation after, it being understood that in the already pre-damaged equipment to a particular series, which was made to a broken machine. Check the serial number could assign the Apple devices and also to those exchanges immediately.


Apple did not just in terms of sales of the new iPhone 5 for records, but also in the rush to download the new io6th Sun was already after only 24 hours to 15% of all io6 compatible devices, the new update. In comparison, it took the whole iOS 5 five days, were provided to 20% of the units. io6 comes with over 200 new features. Gives a brief summary of it here again for gleaning.

Youtube App

6 Apple dispensed with iOS for the first time on the beloved Youtube app. Google promised to want to establish a separate application in the AppStore. This has so far only partially. While the American Store already has a compatible io6 also copy, we in Germany still continue to resort to alternatives, such as Jasmine. When the German Youtube app comes, is as yet uncertain.

Apple Maps

Google Maps also be investigated under io6 in vain. This is the second major cut to the large Google independence, Apple undertook recently. Sun io6 has its own mapping service, which is lined with, among other material from Tom Tom. Apple promises a Precise navigation. Thus, the own maps show not only great at the route on the map, but are also suitable as a mobile navigation device. What sounds great in theory, actually turns out to be in reality, but as an adventure. Wrong meta data, poor satellite images and outdated maps represent the mind of the ambitious io6 subjects on the test. Apple admits now, however, a way for users to actively in the improvement of the map service can work with. In keeping with the “theme together to get to your destination quicker,” you can press the bottom right of the map to be buckled side and under the shaded lettering “Report a Problem” Leave a feedback loop.
