Apple to launch iOS 6 on Wednesday, Sept. 19

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
The next major update to Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 6, will be available for the public to download and install in one week, on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

iOS 6 will be available for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, new iPad, iPad 2 and fourth generation iPod touch.

It launches two days before the iPhone 5 is set to go on sale.

Yep, nothing on the developer page yet.

I wonder how many people will put off to upgrade with the supposedly lack of Street View & ad-free YouTube. Some got quite 'upset' about those removals. Although Apple stated Googles' contract expired and they didn't renew, IIRC.

Will the download of iOS6 for current iPhones be less, percentage-wise, compared to iOS5?

With the vast majority of mobile traffic coming from Apple devices Google have no choice I would have thought but to make apps for anything missing in iOS6 and pray people download them.

I wonder if the 4s will gain Panorama after update to iOS 6?

Any developers out there know how iOS 6 performs on an iPhone 3GS? What features have been left out? Does it feel cumbersome and irritating like iOS 5 does for me right now, or is it optimized for speed on a 3GS?

According to this it will:

However, I suspect it may be a mistake - much like where they seem to have the model numbers mixed up here:

Unless I missed something, I wish they talked more about car manufacturers and siri, I would love to have this feature in my Audi. But either way I can't wait for IOS 6. The other thing that I was hoping for was some type of case or smart cover for the new phone. Seems like revenue they are missing out on and until other manufacturers get there hands on the device, they won't be able to start making cases.

Well, I'm excited. Anyone can link any article about what's new in iOS6 for new iPad?

I have no idea what was on the end of that, but it wasn't there when I copied.

guys, is there a chance that the iPhone 4 gets siri or isn't it even possible due to lack of hardware?

They did release a YouTube app, but I haven't seen the Maps app.

That's a valid question: from the image on Apple's website it looks like the photo app remains 4:3 on the screen and the extra pixels on tNi (the New iPhone) are used for the shutter button and landscape slider for still/video camera setting.

It's completely possible. It won't be happening.

I'm running the iOS6 GM on my iPhone 4 and it's a major disappointment. It's missing a LOT of features that could run on the hardware but Apple decided to leave out to force people to upgrade.

Well, they got their wish. I'm going to upgrade... but not to iPhone 5. I've had it with their bullshit tactics. I'm getting either the Nokia Lumnia 920 or the Samsung ATIV S, both running Windows Phone 8. And hopefully droping AT&T for Tmobile. Can't wait till Xmas!

But you're going to a system that does it even worse, so I'm not sure if this is hypocrisy or just ignorance.

Yeah, wouldn't it be great if every company just gave you the product of their labor for free every year? How dare they give us only some of the new functionality for free. Absolutely everything should be free.

Because they don't want to.

 

We've seen it work on the iPhone 4, both before Apple bought the company and after via jailbreak. The iPhone 4 will never get Siri.

I love that in all the hullabaloo about Maps and how much it "sucks", no one gives a crap that YouTube is also gone. lol.gif

Tallest, I have factory GPS on both of our cars, plus maps on iPad kind of pointless while on a phone could useful when visiting places. But why YouTube is gone? I actually prefer app over any browser. It was damn good app. I just checked App Store and there's nothing good. Awwww. Hello hello. This message is written by Siri and I approve it!

Same reason Google Maps are no longer preloaded. I agree; Apple's YouTube implementation was darn good, but there's a Google-made app out now (iPhone only). 


You can also go to YouTube.com. Going forward, all I can see in that future is ads, which makes me less likely to ever use YouTube again at all once I get an iOS 6+ device. 


Until then, I'll enjoy my ad-free iOS 5 YouTube app, I guess. And ad-free YouTube on the desktop.
