    Default Even More iOS 6 Spoilers - Cool Features We Didn't Have Before!


    iOS 6 is still in beta and more features are being uncovered as each day goes by. A lot of new features have been added that weren’t in iOS 5 – even some that were already present in the jailbreak community – and they’re going to make all iOS devices even more pleasant to use on a day-by-day basis. We recently showed you some major things that changed in iOS 6 and even things as small as the animated metallic volume knobs, but here you will be able to read about some of the smaller features of iOS 6 that will make it a hit.

    So what other things can we look forward to in iOS 6?

    1. Have Multiple E-mail Signatures

    It’s finally here. Apple has received the memo that iOS users often have more than one e-mail for different purposes and that we need more than just one e-mail signature. With iOS 6, you can set a personalized signature with each of your e-mails that you have registered on your iOS device. The signatures will be automatically filled in when you start an e-mail and the signatures will vary depending on the e-mail you use. If you don't have a use for separate signatures, Apple also gives you the option to have a unified signature like before.


    2. A Retina Display Supported Shut-Down Spinner

    That spinner we all know and love. We see it when we respring our devices; we see it when we shut our devices off. Unfortunately, it has never been beautiful to look at on retina display devices. Starting with iOS 6, you can see every pixel in exquisite detail as it spins ‘round and ‘round. It finally supports the retina display. It’s not a ‘feature,’ per se, but it is just one of those small details that adds to the great aesthetics of iOS 6 as a whole.


    3. Hold Down On Safari's Back Button to View A History

    If you are navigating through a Web site with a ton of links that take you here, there, and everywhere, then iOS 6 brings you a simple feature where holding down on the back button will show you all of your steps in order so you can easily navigate backward the same way you went forward without having to move back one site at a time. This saves a ton of time and ensures that you get back to where you need to be without skipping a beat.


    4. Copy and Share YouTube Links From the Native YouTube App

    Even though Apple’s stock YouTube application is known for being almost featureless, boring, and unsatisfying, iOS 6 adds a much-needed feature to the application – the ability to share the link of the videos you watch. You can do so in the new iOS 6 sharing menu that we introduced to you from the Photos application. The YouTube sharing menu almost looks the same, but the options are different, of course, because the application is different and services different purposes than the Photos application does. With this tool, you can now share your videos on Facebook, Twitter, or other social networking sites right from iOS by using the 'Copy' button.


    5. SpotLight Shows the Folder Apps Are In

    As another aesthetic feature that can be considered useful, especially if you have a lot of applications on your iOS device, Spotlight will now show you the folder that your applications are located in when they come up as search results. It appears on the right side of the application name, but tapping on the application will still yield the application being launched.


    6. The Cool New Incoming Call Interface

    As shown at WWDC, iOS 6 brings a new incoming call interface to iOS 6. The interface resembles that of both the iOS 5.1 Camera Grabber and also a jailbreak tweak known as EZDecline. It allows you to press either an answer or decline buttin instead of seeing a ‘slide to answer’ slider and pulling on the Phone Grabber will show you two new options – the ability to be reminded of the call later or the ability to send the person a message. For the reminder setting, you can choose to be reminded at a specific time or when you leave a location. For the message, you can customize up to three different quick messages from the Settings application and choose between them – alternatively, you can compose a custom quick message reply.


    7. Advanced Privacy Customization

    With last year’s outbreak of applications stealing personal user data without permission, Apple needed to create a tighter grip on the situation. With iOS 6, you can choose the applications that have access to your location, contacts, calendars, reminders, and photos. Obviously, certain applications need some of these items to function correctly, but when a game needs access to your location or photos, there’s definitely something wrong there. iOS 6 has you covered, alerting you every time an application wants access to something and letting you be the judge of letting it in or not. Tightened personal security? Good job Apple!


    8. Home Button Speed Settings

    If you have a troublesome home button, iOS 6 has a new feature that will allow you to slow down the necessary actions to launch the App Switcher, or open the triple-click interface. With this, you can press the home button at a slower rate that usual so that the home button won’t accidentally judge your double click as a triple click or your triple click as a double click.

    iOS 6 sure looks shiny, doesn’t it?

    I was going to install Beta 1 last week but when I heard there was no Podcast support I thought against it.

    The YouTube app needs to go and be a separate download from the app store. The web-app gets updated constantly, while the built-in version lacks serious features.

    The new incoming call feature is so obtrusive and takes up just about the entire screen. Couldn't it be downsized a bit??

    It takes the same amount of space as the original. I just pulled up the Phone Grabber to show you what is in it. Just wait until you get it; you will love it .

    Think I read somewhere they are making a dedicated app for podcasts that will be available in the AppStore. Again this is just off memory

    That's already in iOS 5, at least on the iPad 2, I use it all the time.
