iOS 6 is here
Many fans of Apple are still in a daze after the unveiling of the iPhone 5, but there is even more technology coming their way. Freshness Magazine reports fans of the brand can now get a glimpse into how the new iOS 6 operating system works.
Apple's latest system went live on September 19 and anyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod can download the new software to their products to gain access to the updated world that is Apple. The operating system has more than 200 new functions and upgrades ranging from integrated Facebook functions to easier mail systems and better internet browsing capability.
One aspect of the upgrade that may upset customers is the new map program. The upgrade eliminates Google Maps from their products, The New York Times reports. Owners will instead have to get to know Apple-powered maps. The news outlet reports the maps are not as user-friendly and many have found it hard to search for an in-town destination, while others have complained a person must spell the location 100 percent correctly or the app won't search it at all.
"Not being able to find businesses or points of interest without spelling a name 100 percent perfectly could cause some grief," Trenton Fuller, an Apple enthusiast and computer administrator, told the news source. "That problem combined with inaccurate street addresses could be super frustrating."
Are you excited about the new software or could the bad maps ruin it for you?
