    Default iOS 6 and Siri Wow at WWDC


    On Monday, iOS 6 was formally introduced to the Apple developer community and the world at large following the confirmation of updated MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros (read MMi's coverage here).

    Living up to the hype surrounding the iOS update, Scott Forstall - senior vice president of iPhone Software at Apple - delved into the spectacular new bells and whistles that will make the refreshed operating system a much-talked about presence across the mobile landscape.

    According to details shared on stage during the WWDC keynote today, Siri - first and foremost - is getting an update. In other words, she's getting smarter. In one example, Forstall asks Siri when the San Francisco 49ers' season begins and Siri promptly posts a complete season schedule.

    Siri is now tapping into new information services and platforms, raising Siri's IQ in that she can now provide better, more detailed information across a wide variety of interests, like dining out. OpenTable integration, for instance, helps you make dinner reservations from your device using Siri.

    From movies to music and dining to sports scores, Siri is going to do more - much more - like open apps. Car dealerships are even integrating with Siri to deliver "spoken alerts" to drivers. Toyota, GM, Mercedes, BMW, Honda, Audi, and others will all integrate Siri in the coming year.

    Confirming earlier rumors, Facebook will see improved integration as the social network can now be updated via voice command through Siri.

    As expected, Siri is coming to the iPad.

    Stay with MMi for more news and insight about iOS 6 as WWDC continues.

    FaceTime over 3g confirmed. nothing like biteSMS , new maps which looks amazing, Facebook integration, "Do not disturb" mode, and a whole bunch more.

    all i can say is i give iOS 6 a 9/10. i just really wish they'd add in a better messaging system that would let us send a text while we were say playing a game or reading something. Good job apple

    I can't believe they are dropping support for the First Gen iPad but keeping support for the 3GS. I've starting to get tired of Apple killing support for devices that can run an operating system. Support should only stop if it can't run it. 3GS are over 3 years old but my iPad is just barely 2 years old. Don't give me the story about them not making money off it they could charge for the upgrade.

    I give this upgrade about a 6 and that's only because of new Maps.

    I love it, but I wonder if we'll EVER get toggles... That's my number one. The ability to password protect individual apps is number 2.

    I fully agree about dropping iPad 1!!! The 3Gs is still sold though so AT&T is probably forcing them to support iOS 6. Guess my iPad 1 is gonna be a movie only tablet now, such a bummer as it's identical hardware to iPhone 4 just slightly less RAM but still more powerful than a 3Gs!!!

    Though I bet it will be like iOS 4 and the iPhone 3G where the 3Gs will probably not get the full iOS 6 experience. I'm sure it will have some stuff stripped out completely, perhaps no new maps or at least a crippled version with no 3D vector stuff!!!

    The lack of Streetview in Apple's Maps might be what stops me upgrading.

    Nothing about quick reply, nothing about the lame multitasking. Aside from free turn by turn navigation, nothing interested me. Anyone have the full list of features?
