It's certainly not the first example ofsmartphone/car integration we've seen, but it could soon end up being one of the most widely utilized, despite the years-long head-start competing technologies have enjoyed.
I got all my iDevices up and running on iOS 6 by 6:30pm
Maps is very sketchy at the moment, uses a lot of resources and had crashed on me a few times when I'm zoomed up really close looking at SF in 3D. It will be fixed within the next couple of future beta builds for sure.
Kinda creepy if you play with your environment lighting, the toggle switch is constantly adjusting with the reading from the Ambient light sensor. Once you wake the iPhone, that toggle instantly shots up or down for precise brightness adjustments and slowly creeps its adjustments, which is neat since it's not a dramatic burst.
Use to take me forever to place these email services the way want in the previous iOSs, now you can edit their placements.
The typing click sounds seem to be filtered in this build; it sounds like your missing the keys when going really fast, but the sentences are 100% correct. In the past when you type really fast you can hear every key stroke, it gets annoying when your driving and your passenger is struggle to type properly.
Facetime over 3G works well if you or the other party is on Wifi, as long someone has a low ping and it's just like using 3G Unrestrictor from Cydia w/o clogging Mobile Substrate over time.
Siri with full maps + location services is day & night, we didnt get to use it to the full potentials up north and glad to see it deployed worldwide this time. Siri in Mandarin is pretty cool.
The clock app on the iPad is very interesting
I haven't had time to really digg into iOS 6 today, had a ton of stuff to do after installations and will be diggin more tomorrow.
(Once again sorry for that retarded video thread guys)
The default Maps app on iOS is not an official Google app, nor has it ever been. Apple can use any mobile map provider they choose. They chose to use Google's maps.
One can still use Google's maps via a web browser, the mobile web browser formatted Google Maps.
Google is also free to make a 3rd party map app and incorporate voice navigation just like any other 3rd party map app maker has for iOS, MapQuest, Skobbler, etc. all have voice turn by turn integration navigation with their apps. Google can now join the fray.
(Speaking of Maps, the IP4 and 3GS will not support turn by turn Navigation and 3D maps in iOS 6 )
iOS 6 Beta 1, Apple now brings back mutli touch in the power down screen
In iOS 5.1.1, multi touch is disabled in this area. Meaning, slide to power off only works if nothing else is touching the screen. One handed (right hand) power downs were hard sometimes, since the bottom of your thumb + palm area would be touching. (To test what I am talking about; get to the power down screen, now place one finger in the middle of the screen and try to slide to power off in iOS 5.1.1)
Siri now can read any notifications.
(After reading them, many are not cleared out for now)
I am a little confused. My Verizon phone was able to roam on GSM because they used TDMA. Tell it was shutdown. The phone recognizes it as Analog. If PCS has TDMA, It could be technically be used on GSM.
